All American: Layla&#;s Season 4 Move Could Set Up Jordan Romance

All American season 4 sees Layla Keating move to live in with the Baker family, and that could set up a romance between Layla and Jordan Baker.

Layla Keating's move inAll American season 4 could set up a romance between her and Jordan Baker. The majority of The CW's football drama based on Spencer Paysinger's pre-NFL career follows Spencer James, but the series has continued to flesh out its supporting characters over time. All American season 4 does so by building on many of their relationships, and it might be starting to tease how a romance between Layla and Jordan can form.

Layla and Jordan have known each other since childhood, but All American season 4, episode 1, shows how their friendship is starting to grow. The episode features a prominent storyline revolving around Layla, which builds on the cliffhanger from All American season 3's ending where she left with Carrie. It's revealed that Layla helped stop Carrie from committing suicide, but this helps Layla realize that she doesn't feel safe living with her father. While Layla keeps most of these emotions to herself at first, it is only after speaking to Jordan that the truth comes out, and she realizes what she must do. This meant moving out of her father's house, with the Baker family agreeing that she could live with them instead.

Now that Layla and Jordan are living together, this could be an early step All American takes to make the two of them form a romance in season 4. They'll see a lot more of each other thanks to Layla's new living arrangements. This could bring them to confide in each other even more about whatever challenges life throws their way in All American season 4. Layla's mental health and Jordan's recent reckless activities when it came to his post-concussion training could even bring them closer together. As this happens, it won't be surprising if Layla and Jordan develop feelings for one another and start All American's latest romance.

Plenty of All American fans have long wondered if a Layla and Jordan romance was in the cards, and the show may be finally moving them in that direction. Layla hasn't been in a relationship since she and Spencer broke up in season 3, as Carrie was quite possessive of who she was around. A romance with Layla is a bit more complicated for Jordan at the moment, though. He's still dating Simone even though they called off their wedding. However, Simone's All American spinoff and the likelihood that she'll get a new romantic interest there means Jordan should become single sometime soon. Hopefully, if the romance does happen, Layla and Jordan don't act on their feelings until that breakup is official.

Not only would a Layla and Jordan romance make sense for each of them, but it would also be a massive development for All American season 4 that would create plenty of drama. Layla is Spencer's ex and Olivia's best friend, while Jordan is Olivia's brother and one of Spencer's best friends. The tension that this could cause for these main characters is why All American season 4 could go the romance route for Layla and Jordan. Now viewers will have to wait and see if it develops.

All American: Why Layla&#;s Father Was Recast (& Who Plays Him)

All American season 3 brought JP Keating back, but Elvis Nolasco didn't play him. Here's why Layla's father was recast and who plays him now.

All American recast Layla's father during season 3, and here's who plays JP Keating now. The CW's football drama has accumulated a growing cast as the show has continued. While Spencer James is still the star, characters like Olivia Baker, Jordan Baker, Coop, and Layla Keating have had prominent roles. As each of their stories grows, more characters were introduced to All American. For Layla, this meant the introduction of her father, mega-music producer JP, during season 1.

Layla's father appeared in multiple episodes during All American's first two seasons with actor Elvis Nolasco playing the character. JP returned for the first time in All American season 3, episode 7, which finally showed what happened during the summer when the kids went to Las Vegas. He only was in a few scenes; one where he and Layla met briefly, another where he listed to Patience's new song, and then Patience saw him kissing one of his singers. However, viewers might not have immediately recognized JP, and for good reason. All American recast Layla's father for season 3.

The absence of Elvis Nolasco as Layla's father didn't go unnoticed by All American viewers and raised questions about why he was recast. Elvis Nolasco confirmed on social media that the reason All American recast him in season 3 was due to COVID He revealed that his absence was caused by COVID restrictions and travel guidelines. All American films in California naturally, but Elvis Nolaso is a New York native and wasn't able to head out west when necessary. As a result, the show had no other choice but to recast Layla's father.

With Nolasco unable to return for season 3, All American cast Ray Campbell to play Layla's father. He has been acting since the late s and got his first recurring role as Kleavon Gardner in The Shield. Campbell later joined Breaking Bad as Tyrus Kitt, and he's reprised the role multiples during Better Call Saul's run. More recently, Ray Campbell was featured in multiple episodes of How to Get Away with Murder as Solomon Vick, joined Tyler Perry's The Haves and the Have Nots, and had a supporting role in Danny Trejo's From a Son.

Now that All American recast Layla's father, it will be interesting to see who plays him moving forward. Elvis Nolasco wants to return in the future and keep playing JP Keating. However, Ray Campbell played Layla's father throughout the most recent season and returned for a small role in the All American season 3 finale. With Layla expected to play an important role in All American season 4, her father should appear again.

This puts the show in a difficult spot when deciding who will play Layla’s father moving forward, especially as COVID remains a concern. Ray Campbell might continue to play Layla's father moving forward to avoid further confusion, which could result in All American’s recast becoming permanent and leaving Elvis Nolasco to remain away from the series due to the pandemic. If that is the case, perhaps the show will eventually find another role for Nolasco to play.

It&#;s been a torturous three months for All American fans, who were left to wonder all summer if Coop, Layla and/or Carrie would survive to see Season 4.

Fortunately, during the CW drama&#;s return on Monday night, the show wasted no time in giving us answers: The headline here is that all three women survived their near-death experiences&#; but some serious psychological wounds have been created in the meantime. Read on for the details of &#;Survival of the Fittest,&#; which picks up a few days after the events of the Season 3 finale.

* WHAT HAPPENED TO COOP?| Despite what the episode&#;s cryptic dialogue would initially have us believe, Coop is OK, but it&#;s certainly touch-and-go for a while. After losing plenty of blood in Preach&#;s arms, Coop is eventually rushed to surgery at the hospital, and she remains in a coma for three days after the surgery is over. Once Coop wakes up, though, Spencer notes that she&#;s expected to make a full recovery — and the real trouble is now the legal mess that awaits Coop and Preach following the shooting.

As Preach divulges to Patience and Spencer, he shot Mo just as Mo shot Coop the other night&#; and Mo is now dead. But since Preach is currently a felon on parole, Coop refuses to let him take the fall for Mo&#;s death. Instead, when a detective arrives in Coop&#;s hospital room shortly after she wakes up from her coma, Coop lies that she shot Mo out of self-defense after Mo shot her first; she claims not to know what happened to her gun afterward, or how she got to the hospital. The detective, clearly suspicious, eventually leaves Coop&#;s room, and Preach follows Patience into the hospital hallway when she also abruptly exits the room.

Patience tells Preach that by lying to the cops just now, Coop has once again gotten involved with endless gang drama, and Patience is tired of blaming herself and Preach for what happened to Coop. &#;The truth is, the person to blame for all the drama that follows Coop around is Coop,&#; Patience says. &#;When is it ever gonna stop?&#;

* WHERE DID CARRIE TAKE LAYLA?| As revealed through flashbacks, Carrie has Layla drive to a Los Angeles overlook before they go to Carrie&#;s parents&#; house, and Layla is terrified when Carrie gets out of the car, approaches the edge of the cliff, then nearly jumps and tries to pull Layla with her. Carrie says she just wants her pain to go away, and she assumes Layla feels the same way, having been betrayed and abandoned by so many people in her life.

&#;That is not my life. That is not how I feel,&#; Layla cries to Carrie, who&#;s still keeping them dangerously close to the edge of the cliff. &#;Yes, I&#;ve felt betrayal and abandonment, but you know what else I felt? Forgiveness and love and purpose and hope.&#; All at once, Carrie finally seems to realize how she&#;s put Layla&#;s life in peril, suddenly recognizing that Layla has hope, and they&#;re not the same. She lets go of Layla&#;s hand and sobs that she&#;s sorry, but Carrie still steps closer to the cliff&#;s edge after Layla runs back to her car. She weeps that she can&#;t keep starting over, and everything hurts, but Layla finally convinces her to come back to the car, urging Carrie to believe she&#;s not alone and she will get through this. Eventually, Carrie does step away from the cliff, and she cries in Layla&#;s arms after admitting she&#;d like to go back to the Running Springs rehab facility.

After that traumatic incident, which has left Layla with nightmares and hand tremors, she finds herself feeling smothered by her overprotective dad and tries to reassure him (quite unconvincingly) that she&#;s fine. Later, after a gentle nudge from confidant Jordan, Layla tells her dad that she hasn&#;t felt safe and secure since her mom died and he left. &#;You&#;re part of the home I feel unsafe in,&#; Layla says to him. &#;And that feeling is what left me vulnerable to someone like Carrie.&#; She apologizes, but JP says there&#;s no need; he just wants to do whatever it takes to get Layla feeling safe again. At the end of the episode, Layla temporarily moves in with the Bakers, and Olivia and Jordan keep her company so she doesn&#;t have to sleep alone on her first night there.

All American Season 4 Premiere Recap* WHO WON THE STATE CHAMPIONSHIP?| Well, that depends on who you ask. Crenshaw is leading at halftime, but that&#;s when Spencer gets pulled away from the game after he learns of Coop&#;s shooting. Later, as the game nears its final seconds, Beverly High is up , and Crenshaw attempts to score one last touchdown to clinch the big win.

But when Crenshaw&#;s Chris gets tackled near the end zone, football in hand, the referees and Beverly players frantically assert that Chris came up short of the goal line, and Beverly wins the championship. In Coach Baker&#;s estimation, though, Chris did get the ball over the line, and he believes Crenshaw to be the state champs, even if that&#;s not in the official record. And because Billy is still angry with Spencer for training with Jordan before he was medically cleared to play football again, he coldly reminds Spencer that Crenshaw won without him.

Throughout the premiere, Spencer finds himself hesitant to commit to Toledo State University, the only college to offer him a football scholarship thus far. And despite the best efforts of Olivia, Grace and even Spencer&#;s half-brother, Darnell, to persuade Spencer to accept the offer, it isn&#;t until Spencer gets brutal honesty from Billy that he seriously considers signing. Billy suggests that Spencer&#;s reluctance to sign isn&#;t because he thinks his family and friends will fall apart without him; it&#;s because he&#;s worried they won&#;t. &#;And who is Spencer James if he ain&#;t the hero?&#; Billy asks the teen.

Spencer later visits his father&#;s grave and admits he doesn&#;t know how to answer the question that Billy posed — but it might be time to get the answer for himself. So, at long last, Spencer adds his signature to the Toledo State offer letter, and Grace and Dillon pull him into a big hug.

FANS of All American were left scratching their head after a recent episode swapped out a familiar cast face.

Viewers noticed the change during season three of All American, demanding answers as to what happened to their favorite character.

What happened to Layla's dad in All American?

All American episode seven saw answers revealed to what finally happened in Las Vegas, something that had been haunting fans for a while.

Layla's dad, JP Keating, was first introduced in the fifth episode of the first season as Layla's rich and estranged father.

In the latest episode, JP came back with a new face, leaving fans wondering what happened to actor Elvis Nolasco.

As it turns out, Elvis couldn't be there for the filming because of the COVID travel restrictions, reported Republic World.

This led to him being replaced last minute, but fans are hopeful nothing happened between the actor and the show creators.

What else happened in the episode?

And, as fans correctly pointed out, "here was indeed something brewing between Spencer and Olivia all along as it was revealed that the two had shared a kiss in Vegas."

The next episode, titled Canceled, is sure to keep the drama going. In an episode synopsis, it's said that:

"Laura notices that Olivia has become more withdrawn and allows Olivia and Jordan to both take a mental health day and get some much-needed twin bonding time; things get heated with Layla and Olivia, leaving Olivia to get some much-needed clarity."

Why did Layla's dad come back into her life?

Layla has one of the more complicated plot lines in the show.

"Though she was recognized as the 'it girl' in her school, at home she was nothing but a lonely girl who had a record of suicide attempts," writes Republic World.

It was revealed her mother had died in a car accident while her father was busy living a new life in New York.

When her father came back to meet her, Layla had a hard time accepting him and his much younger ex girlfriend.

JP later learned that Layla attempted suicide in the same place her mother, his ex, had tried to. The two later mended things and JP stuck around in Layla's life for good.
