With Homecoming King and Queen nominations being announced, neither Spencer nor Coop seem to be in a celebratory mood with everything going on. Laura notices that Olivia has become more withdrawn and allows Olivia and Jordan to both take a mental health day and get some much-needed twin bonding time.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. Meanwhile, Billy is frustrated with the interim principal's new rules, leaving Spencer to come up with a game plan with a little help from Grace.
Spencer James is a rising high school football player and an A student at South Crenshaw High who is recruited by Beverly High School's football coach Billy Baker. Spencer is conflicted on whether or not to move to Beverly High but Spencer's mother, Grace, and his best friend, Coop, convince Spencer it's an opportunity he has to seize. When Spencer is forced to move in with Billy and his family, these two families and their vastly different worlds are drawn together. They will discover that the differences that divide us on the surface hide a deeper connection - the complicated, imperfect humanity that unites us all.
