All American Season 5 Episode 17 is titled “Mask Off,” and it seems like an old friend will be visiting Spencer and Jordan in this episode. We will also see Olivia trying to tell her truth and Paicence making a decision about her career.

Episode 16 was called “My Name Is,” and it’s good to be back with All American. I know we were on a short break, and then we had a couple of Episodes; I think we had like four Episodes or something, then we went back on the break, but now we are back with All American.

It’s good to be back, and it really kicked us back for these next couple of Episodes before the Season ends. They really made a great Episode that kind of starts back up with the show. I guess it was kind of like Easter break, and that’s why they like going on break for that short bit.

All American Season 5 Episode 17 Release Date & Preview

All American Season 5 Episode 17 will release on 25 April 2023 on The CW. Episode 17 will be called “Mask Off,” and the Synopsis says that “It will be Spring Break for our GAU, but this break will bring some major changes when an old friend from the past surprises Jordan and Spencer. Then Olivia will be searching for the courage to tell her the truth that she has been hiding. Patience will have to decide as her career takes off. Finally, Layla has a very eye-opening talk.”

When an old friend from the past surprises Jordan and Spencer, this break will bring about some significant changes. In other words, another character has been scheduled to appear. I have no idea who might be paying Spencer and Jordan a visit. Darnell and Frausto were previously seen on the show.

The only other person I can think of is Chris. I saw somebody joking that it would be Simone. I doubt it’s Cam, but the only other thing that I can think of is somebody that they knew on the CrenshawnTeam or on the Beverly Hills Team. It’s been so many people in this show; Sot’s no telling who it could be.

Olivia gathering the strength to reveal her secret could be many things, maybe Journalism and her actually using her name, maybe dance, or just some other thing that she wants to do.

The Line about Patience in the synopsis suggests that she is undergoing a few changes as her popularity as the New Patience increases. Perhaps she will decide whether she wants to be the original Patient or the new Patient. “Layla will have an enlightening talk”. I’m not sure how to feel about this one; it has something to do with Jordan or business.

What Will Happen In All American Season 5 Episode 17?

At the beginning of the All American Season 5 Episode 17 trailer, we see a man that works for the college saying, “There’s a rumor that they are signing ex-cons and has-beens”. From what he heard, he is not happy with what’s going on. I could see Coach Kenny, Spencer, and Jordan defending the players.

From a different trailer, I think it’s in the same scene Spencer says, “What’s going on isn’t a charity”. So maybe the guy said, “What are they, a charity or something?” After that, Spencer went to talk to him about it.

Then we see the character that we’ve seen in the previous trailers; he says, “He’s a star running back who happens to be gay, and he just wants to train in peace.” Either everyone in the team knows that the man is gay and that he wants to play football, or nobody knows that he is gay, and he is merely concerned about how people would react to this thing and how that could interfere with his ability to play football.

In a different trailer, we did see him talking to Spencer and Jordan. So maybe they will talk to him and let him know that everything is going to be okay.

Olivia Is Spiraling

Then in the All American Season 5 Episode 17 Preview, we see a scene where it sounds like Laura is saying that Olivia is spiraling, and we hear Olivia say, “What if people think she’s a fraud”.

In All American Season 5 Episode 16, Olivia revealed that she would be showing up to the award ceremony as Olivia Baker for the article instead of the name that she did use for the article, which is Jane Davis. Because she was struggling with that; if she used her real name, it would affect those close to her, but also she wanted to get credit for it, and that was the last thing she and her father worked on together.

When it comes to what Laura says, she sees how Olivia is being affected by what’s going on, possibly related to her name not being on the article and the situation around that, and she’s telling someone that Olivia is spiraling.

What she’s going through right now could be the reason why she told someone she wants to do the college student thing. Maybe she wants to be distracted or to try something new.

Olivia might possibly think that the people that should be in the room with that also write articles may see her as a fraud because she did not use her real name or they just think she got lucky. They could even think that she’s not even the one that wrote it at all.

Olivia Going To The Ceremony

Then the All American Season 5 Episode 17 promo goes to Spencer telling Olivia to go out to the life that she wants. Basically, he’s encouraging her to go for what she wants, whether that’s letting everyone know that she wrote the article and that she’s a writer. We’ve seen that she’s getting back into dance, so maybe that is well.

In this episode, we may see her struggling a little bit, trying to figure things out; she’s gonna talk to everyone, and then eventually, she’s gonna figure out what she wants to do. In the trailer, she might be at the award ceremony. If you looked right and left, on the right side, it looks like Spencer because he does talk to her later in the trailer. And on the left side, it kind of looks like Alicia. It might be it, or it might not be it, we’ll just have to wait and see.

In a different trailer, we see Liv and Laura looking up at Billy’s jersey. But towards the right, you see some awards, and someone said maybe one of those is Olivias. If it has a name on it, it’s not going to say Olivia Baker, but most likely Jane Davis.

It was really sad because while they go to the event for Skye, Olivia is also going through some things about how she feels like kind of regrets not putting her name on that article about getting that award. So she’s dealing with her own issues. Like she regrets not using her real name in that article because it’s a big deal that she got that award for something that was the last thing she did with my father.

So she feels upset and regrets not putting her name on it. She didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings at the end of the day; she was like, “damn, I could have gotten an award. And I feel like I regret that.” So she’s dealing with that as well.
