'All American' Season 2: Will the identity of Dillon's father remain a mystery?
The confusion began when it was revealed that Grace James (Karimah Westbrook) had an affair with Coach Billy Baker (Taye Diggs).
The second season of 'All American' is out and one of the biggest cliffhangers of the show was who is Dillon's father. The confusion began when it was revealed that Grace James (Karimah Westbrook) had an affair with Coach Billy Baker (Taye Diggs) and her husband Corey James (Chad L. Coleman) is adamant to find out if Dillon (Jalyn Hall) is actually his son.
In the first episode titled 'Hussle & Motivate', Corey and Grace have a tough conversation about the paternity of Dillon. "Time's up so I want an answer to my question," Corey tells Grace and asks her why she has been avoiding him. Grace answers, "I haven't been avoiding you," but they are soon interrupted by Spencer James (Daniel Ezra).
Later, when Grace and Corey finally find some alone-time to talk things through, Corey insists on getting an answer. She says, "The truth is I don't know. At first, I was too scared to even ask the question but you left anyway." When he tries to clear the air, Grace snaps back, "You punish yourself by leaving the boys for eight years. So you don't get to walk in here and question who is the father. They are mine."
However, towards the end of the episode, Corey has a change of heart. When she tells him that she would go for a paternity test as "everybody deserves to know the truth," Corey says, "Blood or no blood, I love Dillon as my son... It's time we stop making kids pay for adults' mistakes." On this ambiguous note, it seems the writers will take more time to dish out the answer to the question: Who is the real father of Dillon?
But, fans are anxious as they have already waited long to find out. One fan wrote, "Meanwhile I’m waiting on 'All American' season 2 who’s Dillon daddy," and another one posted, "I really waited 7 months to see who the dad is in 'All American' season 2 just for the mom to tell say 'I don’t know who his dad is'." One went on to joke about it: "What if...now just hear me out...what if that boy is Laura and Cory’s son...PLOT TWIST #AllAmerican."
Many are angry about Corey's behaviour too as he supposedly has a son. "This --- really ain’t shit he be crying acting like that lady hurt him by f**king Billy when he got a whole son the same age as Spencer. --- really be playing the victim #AllAmerican." one user wrote.
Perhaps, as the season progresses, the answer will emerge. If not, there might be more complications in the already complex equation between the two couples. The second episode will be out on The CW on Monday, October 14.
