All American is back for its second season, and the series wastes no time in jumping into the major mysteries while introducing a few new ones.
For fans who have been waiting eagerly for the arrival of a new season of All American since the Season 1 finale and new fans who discovered the series this summer on Netflix, welcome back! Last night, the Season 2 premiere of CW’s hit series aired, and we’re already buzzing with questions about what’s coming next.
As for those big cliffhangers we were left with at the end of Season 1, the show doesn’t waste much time before digging into the center of them all. At the beginning of the episode, Spencer is set on returning to Crenshaw to play for Cory. But by the end of the hour, his mind has changed. He’s still undecided about what lies ahead.
In regards to Dillon’s paternity, Grace and Cory agree not to divulge anything. Why bring Dillon into the adult drama? He’s content in believing Cory is his biological father, and it’s clear Grace doesn’t know the truth either. They decide to leave well enough alone. However, speaking of Cory, it seems the mysteries revolving around him are only deepening, which leads us to our first major question.

In the final scene of the episode, Cory greets an unfamiliar character at a bus station. Whoever he is, he came from Nevada to live with Cory, and he makes a comment about being thankful Cory has spoken to “mom” about letting him come live with Cory.
Who is Mom? Is this new teenager, Cory’s son? Is Spencer about to get another brother? Surely “Mom” isn’t Grace. I’m guessing whoever this kid’s mother is, it’s someone we haven’t met.
All American likes to fake out its audience too. Last season we were teased with the idea of Billy being Spencer’s real dad before inevitably learning it was Dillon who may have questionable paternity.
I’m guessing this newcomer is not Cory’s son, although he might be a foster son or have a close relationship with Cory, similar to that formerly between Spencer and Billy. It’s almost a given he’ll play football on Cory’s new team at Crenshaw.
