With things going on so well between Marcus (Cory Hardrict) and Amara (Kelly Jenrette) , we were all expecting that the couple would take their relationship to the next level. One of the most popular theories said that Marcus will surprise Amara with a ring in the finale, and they would get engaged.
Toward the end of Episode 15, we see Marcus and Amara celebrating after they have revealed to their children that they are dating. It feels like a romantic proposal is just around the corner.
However, this moment of happiness doesn't last long. The moment of disaster starts when a woman suddenly knocks on Marcus's apartment door. Marcus cluelessly opens the door, only to find out that the woman standing behind it is no other than his wife. Her appearance comes as a shock to both Marcus and Amara, who doesn't know that her boyfriend has already had a wife this whole time.
So, Auntie Amara is actually "the other woman", and Coach Marcus is cheating on both his wife and Amara? Wow. This definitely wasn't on our bingo card. And Marcus has got some explaining to do.

As we all know, Marcus and Amara used to date back in college, but they broke up due to some personal circumstances. During All American: Homecoming Season 1 Episode 5, we get to know that the relationship ended because of Amara's sister, Tina. Apparently, Tina came to meet Marcus and told him that he's not good enough for her sister.
Marcus obviously didn't believe in it. Not until an injury ruined his rising athlete career forever.
This incident absolutely broke him, it pushed him into a mental breakdown. During those moments of despair, Tina's words started to wander around his mind. Marcus thought that she was right: he will never be good enough for Amara. That was when he decided to leave everything behind, including Amara.

In an interview with Deadline, showrunner Nkechi Okoro Carroll shared that the writers had always had plans to go futher into Marcus's "missing years".

"He’s the one person that left Bringston, had a whole life that even Amara doesn’t know a whole lot about. Yes, he was drafted into the MLB. He went to play with the minors. It was this whole high pressure situation that she wasn’t a part of. He sort of pushed her away and then when he came back, he’d clearly been through something. So we touched on the mental health side of it in Season 1. We hadn’t specifically landed on the wife of it all for Season 2, but we knew there’s a chunk of time in Marcus’s life that shaped the man he is today", she said.

Showrunner Marqui Jackson revealed to US Magazine that they came up with the idea of a "secret wife" when they realized it is now time for Marcus and Amara to face some challenges.
"“No couple can be happy forever. So it just felt like a really unique opportunity. Because there’s so much about Marcus we still don’t know. Even though we do know a little bit about his mental health journey, I think it was just the excitement of like getting to learn something new about him, something unexpected that’s out of character”, he said.

Carroll also confirmed that the show would dive deeper into Marcus's past with his current wife in Season 3. "One of the things that happened in those missing years was that he got married. We will explain in Season 3 how and why she technically is still his wife”, she said.
