Coop’s connection to Spencer’s shooting and arm problems runs deep, and it’s kind of All american it has been setting up all the time. Coop previously linked up with Tyrone’s gang in Crenshaw and tried to get others to turn against him. This made her a target of Tyrone and caused Spencer to step in to try to protect her when possible. Spencer’s confrontations with Tyrone led him to become a target, but now he realized that he was only shot because of Coop. Now that Spencer has made this connection, the loss of feeling in her arm may be linked to times of stress with Coop.
Spencer’s arm problems returned for the first time at the end of All american season 2. While the numbness didn’t start until he was with Olivia, Spencer was last seen saying goodbye to Coop. He was about to leave on his summer music tour. Although Tyrone was already dead and Coop was shown not to be the killer, Spencer is always worried about her. It’s unknown why it took so long for the loss of feeling to begin when Spencer traveled from Crenshaw to Beverly since then, but that was the last time she was with Coop before it happened. In All american Season 3, Episode 3, Spencer briefly fell asleep before the first game of the season. However, just before the game started, Coop told her that her shooter was arrested and that she believed it was part of Monique’s sinister secret plan to get revenge for Tyrone’s murder. While Spencer dismisses this conspiracy theory (as he calls it), this could once again trigger his concern for Coop’s safety and explain the loss of feelings again.
Now that Spencer has connected Coop to his arm problems, it will be fascinating to see what comes out of this as All american season 3 continues. He has just learned that Coop may not graduate due to pursuing a music career and missing too much school. While he wants to help, Spencer could be put in a tough spot where she has to let Coop figure it out on her own. Doing so might be a tough love for Coop, but it would also keep Spencer a little less stressed. It can even be argued that a split from Coop is best for Spencer, but that seems unlikely to happen. In any case, it will be fascinating to see if Spencer has arm problems now that she has identified Coop as her stalemate.
