'All American' Season 2: Is Dillon the result of an affair between Coach Billy Baker and Spencer's mother Grace?
With 'All American' set to make a comeback on The CW, fans are intrigued by Spencer's brother Dillon's fate
Inspired by the real-life story of NFL Superbowl champion Spencer Paysinger, 'All American' revolves around Spencer James (Daniel Ezra) and his conflicted adolescent years when he started learning to play football.
With the series set to make a comeback on The CW, fans are intrigued by Spencer's brother Dillon's fate. Season one ended on a huge cliffhanger about how he could actually be Coach Baker's son and if that turns out to be true, it might ruffle one too many feathers.
Throughout the series, there was much confusion around whether or not Spencer is Coach Billy Baker's (Taye Diggs) son as Spencer's mom, Grace (Karimah Westbrook) happens to be his former teenage sweetheart.
However, it was confirmed that Spencer's biological father is actually Corey James (Chad L. Coleman). Soon, in the last few episodes, Spencer reconnects with his dad and his father is also selected as the new American football coach for South Crenshaw High School.
It is then that Spencer is torn between going back home to play for the team or staying at Beverly Hills with his coach.
While fans are relieved that Spencer is not Coach Baker's son, there is still a cloud of doubt looming over whether or not his brother Dillon James (Jalyn Hall) was a result of Grace and Billy's affair.
The speculation became stronger when Corey admitted that he left his family because of his wife's betrayal and the possibility of his younger son not being his biological child. But the big question is: How true is it?
"I think it's very likely he had an affair and the younger brother is actually Coach Baker's son. It would explain why his dad seemed to have disappeared shortly after the younger brother was born and why we never really get any mention of both of them simultaneously," one user wrote on Reddit.
The user continued: "They only focus on Spencer’s relationship with his dad but never mention the younger brother's feelings to the dad leaving."
Another viewer pointed out, "I agree that Billy is probably Dillon's dad. Back in episode three, when Jordan went over to Spencer's house, there were a couple of sweet scenes with Jordan and Dillon that I interpreted as suggesting they'd eventually be revealed to be half-brothers."
"That was before the showrunner change, but I still think it will be the case," the viewer added.
As the series premieres on October 7, 2019, on The CW, the answers might finally be revealed but there has to be some connection as one fan rightly said, "They've hinted way too much that Spencer's mom and coach Bakers relationship isn't entirely platonic, most notably during that phone call during Spencer's birthday episode."
