Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers for the Season 2 finale of All American: Homecoming.
All American: Homecoming may be a spinoff of the CW’s All American series, but the show continues to build its own strong fanbase.
All American: Homecoming follows Simone Hicks' (Geffri Maya) collegiate journey at Bringston University in Georgia. And with the series now two seasons in, a lot has changed for the rising tennis star.
Fans first met Simone in the OG series as Jordan Baker's (Michael Evans Behling) hookup-turned-girlfriend. The pair jumped the broom before heading off to college, but the distance between California and Georgia was too much for their romance.
Simone immediately caught the eye of Damon Sims (Peyton Alex Smith) before starting at Bringston. The two have since built a solid friendship, although some fans want the pair to take things to the next level.
So, do Simone and Damon end up together? Or does she play it safe with Landon? Here’s everything that we know.
Do Simone and Damon end up together on 'All American: Homecoming'?
From the beginning, Damon's eye is on Simone. The pair shares intimate moments throughout the series — a kiss after Damon’s father passes away, romantic embraces, and more. In the Season 2 finale, we learn that "and more" actually means that they slept together! Yes, our favorite will-they-won't-they is actually a have-they-haven't-they.
Of course, sex doesn't mean that they're in love, nor that they'll actually explore their relationship further.
But throughout the series, Damon and Simone's feelings for one another come out in various ways. When Damon dates Thea (Camille Hyde), he makes it clear that he still maintains his feelings for Simone. Shady!
Interestingly, things take a turn for Damon and Simone at the masquerade ball where he admits that he's in love with her. And while Simone is open about feeling something between the two of them from the beginning, she doesn’t want to ruin their friendship.
Who does Simone end up with in 'All American: Homecoming'? Lando is also in the mix.
In every episode, Simone is a sounding board for Damon regarding family issues, his paternity revelation with J.R. (Sylvester Powell), baseball, and more. So, it’s understandable why Simone isn't sure if a romantic relationship is best for herself and Damon.
On the flip side, Simone has a friends-with-benefits relationship with Lando (Martin Bobb-Semple). And while those relationships tend to end up being very messy, the pair have been able to successfully navigate.
But in Season 2, Episode 15, Lando puts all his cards on the table and tells Simone that he wants more. He shares that their relationship is “uncomplicated” and that they enjoy their time together.
So, Simone has two gorgeous suitors ready to take things to the next level. What a great problem to have! Although we doubt Simone feels that lucky — Season 2 ends on a cliffhanger in which Simone is stuck choosing between Lando and Damon.
We won't know who she chooses unless there's a Season 3.
Social media users are split on who Simone should end up with.
If you ask some All American: Homecoming fans, it only makes sense for Simone and Damon to end up in a relationship.
Some fans think that the writing team has been slowly setting it up for Simone’s next man to be Damon. Not to mention, some believe that Simone and Damon’s chemistry and friendship are undeniable — which are both key for a successful relationship.
On the flip side, some folks believe that Simone and Lando should be endgame. For starters, Lando has been interested in Simone from the beginning.
Remember, Damon decides to enter a relationship with Thea knowing that he has feelings for Simone. Plus, he disrespects Thea by sending Simone a message stating “this is not the end of [their] story” when the campus is on lockdown.
Aside from Lando being all about Simone, he is instrumental in helping her cruise through anxiety attacks, he supports her through her pledge journey, and he is always giving her sound advice on various issues. So, it can be argued that Lando and Simone have a better connection.
As one Twitter user said, Lando is “not boyfriend material, he is husband material.”
Damon and Lando are both good guys, but it's all about what Simone wants. There's also a possibility that Simone chooses herself, which is never a wrong choice.
