Bel-Air Season 2 continues to hit its stride, moving towards the finale with a well-written episode that features Olly Sholotan delivering once again.

We recap the Peacock series Bel-Air Season 2 Episode 7, which contains spoilers.

We got a break in the drama last week on Bel-Air with Phil (Adrian Holmes), and Vivian (Cassandra Freeman) hosted the family reunion.

Then, we saw Will (Jabari Banks) and Carlton (Olly Sholotan) agree to battle it out for the Founders Award. Plus, Will asks the family to help Geoffrey (Jimmy Akingbola) with his son.

Bel-Air Season 2 Episode 7 Recap

The episode starts with Vivian and Phil making breakfast for the Founders Award boys. Of course, Vivian is worried because the last time these two battled, it got ugly. Phil takes the boys to the golf course to give them a hand, as the golf tournament is part of the Founders Award.

Moments later, we see Geoffrey meeting Frederick, his son, for the first time. Finally, Phil approaches Carlton about him giving an extra hand to Will over the Founders Award, and Carlton plays it cool but is noticeably upset.

Knowing that LaMarcus is after Hilary, Will is now in fix-it mode by going back and forth between her and Jazz to repair their relationship. Then, James comes in to talk to Phil about the firm and that their losing Garrison Automotive could cause the firm takeover to happen. However, Phil reassures that he will make it happen.

Vivian is struggling because her boss is sending all the bad reviews from the art show. But Hilary shows her that the piece from the art show has been liked on Instagram over 700,000 times. We hear Vivian say she couldn’t believe that many people liked what she did. This shocked Hilary, who didn’t know she made it.

Doc calls an extra practice causing Will to cancel on Phil and miss an important meeting at the school for the Founders Award. We see Erika bring Phil to wow him with the firm. They offer him a job to cover their West Coast team and already have an offer in his inbox with no hidden things.

In the middle of each guy from the Founders Award presenting their case, Will shows up late but nails it at first. However, while he struggles, Carlton runs with this opportunity until someone leaks the video of one of the members dropping the n-word and Carlton signing off on it. Later, Carlton accuses Will of spreading the video.

After practice, the team realizes that Will has been riding around in a stylish SUV. They invite him to go eat but make him take them in his car.

Next, Frederick wanders around the Banks household, where he sees photos of Geoffrey with Will/Carlton that cause him to get a little jealous. It prompts him to tell Geoffrey that he plans on heading home because all these people seem to need him, and he has done fine without him.

Carlton sits down with his mom to tell her she is right about the Founders Award. While with his teammates, Jackie approaches Will, drunk, and blows him off cause she doesn’t think he wants to spend time with her. Because of this, Jackie starts to get further wasted, and Will tries to help. As dinner is wrapping up, Jazz’s card gets declined, with Hilary ending up paying for it, which frustrates him.

Why do Hilary and Jazz break up?

After dinner, Jazz is upset cause Hilary didn’t allow the waitress to run his card again. Then, he proceeds to tell her she would’ve never done that if LaMarcus was at dinner with her. She calls him out for his insecurities, and since he can’t get past them, she says it’s over.

Before leaving, Phil tells Frederick a story about how much Geoffrey did for him. He told about how Geoffrey ensured that no matter what happened in Frederick’s life or his adopted parents, Geoffrey supported him from a distance.

Who leaked the video?

Drew. While walking the halls, Will overhears Drew bragging about how Carlton is out of the Founders Award race. Then, Will confronts Drew about him leaking the video. Drew tells him, “You’re welcome,” and tells him he can’t prove that he leaked it.
