'Bel-Air' has been a humdinger of a series for most parts. The reboot of the hit 90s sitcom 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' has managed to remain as relevant though it cut back on the humor quotient entirely. However, it seems to have lost steam in recent times as it marinated for way too long on things that weren't of much significance.

Fortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case anymore given that the makers have started touching on more serious aspects of Will's life, especially the rather mysterious history that the Banks and his father share. Episode 8, titled 'No One Wins When The Family Feuds,' saw Will's mother fly down to L.A. to celebrate his birthday. This is when they begin talking about his father Lou and it's revealed that Vy, Vivian, and Phillip intentionally did something to keep him away as he posed a serious threat to Will's life. Though they don't disclose much about Lou or what they did to ensure that he stays away from Will, it's suggested that he did owe a lot of money to people and that Vy had to clean up after him way too many times. The episode ended with Will asking Geoffrey to track down Lou for him and we can definitely expect this to spill over to the upcoming episodes of 'Bel-Air.'
