While it might not be the best episode of the season, it was the most fun I’ve had with the series. Who doesn’t love a good family reunion?

We recap the Peacock series Bel-Air Season 2 Episode 6, “Let the Best Man Win,” which contains spoilers.

As things ramp up in Bel-Air, things slowly become problems for the Banks family. With Will (Jabari Banks) and Carlton (Olly Sholotan) soon battling over the Founders Award, Phil (Adrian Holmes) and Geoffrey (Jimmy Akingbola) talking, and Hilary (Coco Jones) making movies without Ivy (Karrueche Tran), it’s getting interesting.

We are in the back half of season two, and things are about to get crazy.

Bel-Air Season 2 Episode 6 Recap

The episode starts with Phil teaching Vivian to play spades before the family reunion. Then, he begs Vivian to help out with his mom when she comes into town. Next, Carlton is working out and tells Will that the family flag football game at the reunion is a tense battle.

Finally, Will tells Carlton he wants to keep his name in the Founders Award race. Of course, Carlton doesn’t take the news well and freaks out.

Geoffrey sits down and talks to Phil and Vivian about him not being honest with them. They both agree they want to help him the best way they can. Shortly after that, they hand him an envelope, which he smiles when opening (can imagine photos of his son).

Will, Hilary, and Ashley are prepping for dinner, and she is freaking out because Jazz hasn’t responded to her messages. Will and Ashley point out that it’s because she invited her ex-boyfriend, a football player, to the art show.

What did Phil forget to serve at the family reunion?

While Vivian feels like she can finally relax, his mom enters the kitchen asking where the fish fry is for the reunion. A perplexed Vivian asks about what fish fry and Phil’s mom says, “Well, Phil did miss a couple of the zoom meetings.”

Things get a little weird at the house once Vivian finds out that Erica has been trying to call Phil. Then, Will sees the folder that Geoffrey was looking at and asks Carlton about it.

Carlton says they know about it, but Phil and Vivian are secretive. As each family member comes to the house, Geoffrey gives him the breakdown of who is helping him, introducing himself to each family member.

Who does Phil invite to the family reunion?

Jazz still hasn’t been returning Hilary’s text messages. While texting him again, she looks up, and Lamarcus has arrived at the reunion. Moments later, we find out that Phil was the one who invited him to the reunion because his brother has never had a pro ball player at his house of the family reunion.

Will walks up to Hilary and says he is “team Jazz,” Hilary says she is too.

Finally, Will confronts Geoffrey about his son, who tells him what happened to him. The two share a moment when Will brings up his experience and how Geoffrey would make for a good father.

Then, Phil tells Carlton that he is bringing in a secret weapon for the football game, and in walks Lemarcus. On the field, LaMarcus tells Will that he plans to win Hilary back.

With the game on the line, Carlton drops the game-winning touchdown to say his cousin from a butt chewing from his uncle. Next, inside the house, a nervous Vivian walks up to Phil’s mom, and she gives Vivian a ton of credit for all she did to make the reunion happen.

Moments later, Phil and his brother bond over missing their father.
