The game Season 2 promises to “double the laughs and up the drama as beloved characters and their relationships struggle to survive the storms of change.” according to the official summary.
Thursday’s season premiere on Paramount+ took us back to Draft Day 2017, when Jamison was still a rising star with a bright future, Malik was desperate to get out of San Diego, and Tasha Mack was poised to expand her sports agency empire.
In the flashback, which starred recurring favorites Tee Tee (played by guest star Barry Floyd) and Jason Pitts (Coby Bell), we saw exactly how Jamison’s life fell apart after his girlfriend’s father found out they were sleeping together. He was arrested for rape on the day he was due to be drafted into the NFL. Garret, meanwhile, was drafted into the Las Vegas Fightin’ Fury and subsequently dropped Tasha as his agent.
Tasha brokered Malik’s deal and secured him a new contract that guaranteed him $100 million over four years. Oh, and Tasha struck a deal with Rick Fox to take over his sports agency after he decided to leave the business and settle in his hometown.
Back to the present… the players went on strike, which caused trouble for Tasha. Remember when Colonel threatened to delay the deadline for paying off the massive loan she took out for the athletic academy if she didn’t convince Malik to avoid going on strike? Well, she broke the deal and now it was time to pay.
In episode 2 (which also streams on Paramount+), Tasha was looking for a way out of her legal and financial nightmare. Colonel offered to keep her agency’s name and a job with a “very good salary” in exchange for her working with him and fully taking over the company she had built from the ground up.
Elsewhere, Jamison’s ex-girlfriend paid Allison a visit to get things back on track. But Jamison was ready to close that chapter of his life, especially now that his heart belongs to Brittany.
In a Hail Mary move, Britt called Rick Fox to help Tasha through a loophole that ensured she would remain in control of the agency and have time to pay off the loan in full. Colonel later offered Rick a partnership on the football team and he resigned from their previous business.
But now that the league was officially on strike, Tasha had lost her agency.
