Will’s father made an appearance in the Season 1 finale of “Bel-Air”
The series finale for Bel-Air begins with the Banks family attending a Governor’s reception honoring Aunt Vivian (Cassandra Freeman). Will (Jabari Banks) thanked Uncle Phil (Adrian Holmes) for giving him a second chance and then tried to talk to Lisa (Simone Joy Jones), where he revealed he had fallen in love with her.
Not wanting to have the conversation there, Lisa promised to speak to him the next day before walking away. After the party, the Banks kids continued to wonder what happened to Geoffrey (Jimmy Akingbola) and Will revealed the situation with his father that caused a rift between their Head of House and the Patriarch.
After the conversation, Will’s estranged father, Lou, snuck onto the property and informed Phil that Geoffrey had let him know that his son had reached out to him. During their conversation, it is revealed that Lou went to jail for assault and got out three years ago.
The Philadelphia native claimed he stayed away because he didn’t want Will to see him behind bars or in his halfway house and promised he was a changed person. Lou left the house and Phil told Vivian about the unexpected guest and wondered if they should allow Will to reconnect with him.
The meeting between Lou and Will in episode 10 of season 1 of “Bel-Air” did not go well
As they discussed their options, Carlton (Olly Sholotan) saw Lou and snuck into his father’s office, looking for the report. He then gave it to Will, who immediately confronted his aunt and uncle. Sympathetic to his father, who had a difficult upbringing, the teenager pointed out that his father had not abandoned him as they suggested but had been arrested.
After speaking with his mother, who reiterated why they kept Lou out of his life, Will decided to meet his father. As the two spoke, the teenager’s heart softened when his father explained how seeing his father in prison had “changed” him.
They started reminiscing about sneaking into a basketball game when he was a kid, leading Will to ask why he and his mom didn’t last. According to Lou, the banks did not consider him an adequate supplier for Vy (April Parker Jones). Additionally, he accused Will’s mother of encouraging him to hustle in the first place.
As Lou continued to speak negatively about Vy, the teenager got upset, almost leading to a physical altercation until Phil broke up. After the fight, Will argues with his aunt and uncle, upset that they lied to him. He disappeared for hours and met Jazz (Jordan L. Jones), who encouraged him to create the future he wanted.
