Jordan’s Concerns for Layla’s Well-being in All American

In the most recent episode of “All American,” Spencer runs into Mac and Jordan at the gym during an unscheduled press conference. A finalist for the Heisman Trophy, Jordan shows his appreciation even though he doesn’t win and dodges queries on the NFL draft in favour of the impending playoff game. The reason for Coach Boone’s absence is a family emergency.

Jordan then, presuming he was involved, apologizes to Spencer for the lapse. But Spencer dismisses it, saying he’s in favor of Jordan’s prominence. They start talking about Layla’s emotional problems after her sofa was vandalized.

Jordan visits Layla out of concern for her welfare. He tells her to follow up with her doctor about her depressive medication, but Layla is too busy worrying about the police investigation not moving forward and the security footage in the lounge being deleted. As Jordan struggles with Layla’s mental chaos and the uncertainty of their future together, his fears grow more intense.

Later in “All American”, Spencer and Olivia find Charissa cooking pancakes in the beach house kitchen the morning of the game. She gives them passes to a famous chef’s meal later. They accept the invitation, eager to spend New Year’s Eve together after the game.

Jordan approaches Ryan at Layla’s lounge in the meantime, accusing him of pressuring Layla to quit taking her medicine and flee the town in the middle of a crisis. Ryan stands up for himself and asks Jordan to speak with Layla face-to-face.

Spencer and Olivia’s Determination

Spencer goes to see his brother Dillon and mother Grace for their customary gameday breakfast, but he’s too full from earlier, so they joke about it. News that Dillon has been accepted to the Boston Benwood School of Arts interrupts their happiness and requires them to relocate to the East Coast by Monday.
