Greenleaf Season 6: Is AJ Really Grace’s son?
Fans of Greenleaf have been wondering for quite a while is AJ really Grace’s son. Well, this seems to be the case that he is. In fact, Grace’s kid, who she gave up for adoption when she was eighteen unless Greenleaf writers have an unexpected twist planned for the show’s upcoming spinoff that involves AJ.
Many fans wondered that AJ’s enigma would be connected with his real identity, but it was about his time in prison. In the fifth season, AJ eventually confessed to Grace what pushed him to attempt suicide. While in the hospital bed, he said, “I’m gonna tell you something, and after I say it, I don’t want to talk about it.” He also stated that he is sick of being treated like a puzzle everyone’s trying to figure out.
Furthermore, AJ revealed that during his time in prison, fellow inmates raped him. As a result, he got AIDS. Fans were completely stunned by this revelation. After AJ’s revelation, many fans started speculation various theories about the show. One of these theories suggests that the unknown man who was seen at Faith’s gravesite in the finale of the fourth season is Grace’s real son, not AJ. And Aj was his cellmate in prison.
Although, the series ended on a positive note for AJ. The relationship between AJ and his mother, Grace, was finally moving in the right direction after he chose to live with his dad Noah. However, if true, the above theories change everything we think we know about the ending of Greenleaf. It remains to be seen will we will see AJ or Grace again on screen in Greenleaf Season 6 or the upcoming spinoff.

He went on to say, “When I saw her [preaching], it made me even more excited about the spinoff, because when you hear Lady Mae talking about how to love the past enough to let it go and how to look for the future, it’s just so exciting to me to do another chapter in the story.”
