‘All American’ Season 3 Episode 2 Spoilers: Who will Spencer and Billy pick as new QB in South Crenshaw High?
Season 3 shows Spencer's return to South Crenshaw High for his senior year with Billy Baker (Taye Diggs) by his side as the new head coach
It’s been a long journey in just a short period of time for gifted high school football star Spencer James (Daniel Ezra), from his days as the breakout player at South Crenshaw High to becoming state champion with Beverly Hills High. His family life, personal relationships and athletic future all changed and grown in ways he never imagined.
As season three shows his return to South Crenshaw High for his senior year with Billy Baker (Taye Diggs) by his side as the new head coach, the two might have to sort out quite a bit of bitterness and rivalry before they can head into the game. Together, their plan is to bring home a football championship to save the school. Furthermore, the medical mystery surrounding Spencer’s injured arm will not only significantly affect his game on the field, but also his relationships off the field, as they all try to navigate a very complicated, secret-filled senior year at both Beverly and South Crenshaw.
Titled ‘Seasons Pass’, the first episode began with much drama, especially in Spencer James and Olivia Baker's paradise. Did they have sex or did they not? What's the mystery behind that awkward chemistry? Meanwhile, Coop and Layla returned from tour and Tyrone's sister Mo was back in town. Now, what's in store for the second episode?
‘All American’ Season 3 Episode 2 Predictions
Titled ‘How to Survive in South Central’, the summary reads, “Both Spencer (Daniel Ezra) and Billy (Taye Diggs) are not getting the hero’s welcome they expected from the football team and quickly realize they need to adjust their style and start earning the team’s trust first. Jordan (Michael Evans Behling) is surprised at who the new football coach at Beverly turns out to be and that his starting quarterback position is threatened when the coach starts shaking things up.”
It continues, “Coop (Bre-Z) and Layla (Greta Onieogou) get into an argument over Coop’s tour paycheck, which leads Layla to discover why Patience (Chelsea Tavares) left the tour early. Meanwhile, Asher (Cody Christian) is keeping a secret from Olivia (Samantha Logan) that could jeopardize their relationship.”
The biggest question that the episode leaves hanging in the air with that summary is: What is Asher hiding from Olivia? Did he cheat on her? Moreover, what exactly did Layla's father JP Keating (Elvis Nolasco) do to Patience?
And most importantly, who will be the new quarterback this season — both in Beverly High as well as South Crenshaw High. Going by our predictions, Jordan might get his place back if Asher doesn't come back to the team, owing to his steroid issues. Meanwhile, in South Crenshaw High, there's going to be a huge competition between Darnell (Da'Vinchi) and Chris Jackson (Spence Moore II). Who will win out of the two... only time will tell.
‘All American’ Season 3 Episode 2 Spoilers
In a new promo titled ‘Spencer's Welcome Scene’, Spencer meets Coop and asks her if she's ready for senior year. The two have some friendly catching up to do along with a little leg-pulling. Coop tells him, “It's good to have you home,” and he replies, “It's good to be home.” At South Crenshaw High, Spencer and Coach Billy get a special shout out and a welcome back.
Just then, one of his classmates wonders why everyone's acting like Spencer is some kind of hero. “He's the reason we lost last season,” he adds. But Chris Jackson backs Spencer and argues, “We lost because Beverly was a better team.” The guy is not one to let go. He snaps at Chris, saying, “So why are you defending him, huh? This man almost put you in a wheelchair for life.”
With the arguments already at the peak, the Beverly vs Crenshaw rivalry is building up. “I feel like Spencer and that guy he was just arguing with gonna end up fighting later in the season,” said a fan. Another said, “That dude needs to watch it or else Spencer and his friends and family gonna come for him.” Meanwhile, others are waiting for more Olivia and Spencer scenes. One fan posted, “Let's hope we see some Spencer and Olivia interactions.”
