On the winter premiere of All American, Shawn’s death is the first domino to fall in a chain that begins in Crenshaw and ends in Beverly Hills.
It’s been several weeks since we left off with All American and I’ve been chomping at the bit for the new episode after the dramatic reveals and cliffhangers of the midseason finale. I’m pretty shocked Billy is sticking to his lie about his son’s drug test. I figured he wouldn’t fess up right away, but to lie straight to Olivia’s face after she asked him about integrity a bold and self-serving decision.
We still don’t learn much more about Spencer’s father, though Spencer does ask Billy about what the Malibu coach meant when he referred to the job Billy stole from him. Turns out the job was being offered to almost 50 different coaches, it wasn’t as if it were just a toss-up between Cory and Billy. Maybe Billy’s NFL experience did boost him over the edge but it was a job he earned.
