In essence, AA has institutionalized married segment awards by requiring two awards and calling the result a “Through Award Fare”. They’re saying “buy AAnytime, or buy the Through Award Fare if you want to fly convenient award flights you want”.

Some will excoriate AA for doing this, AA will merely hope this becomes the “new normal” so nobody notices and they can raise the apparent availability of award tickets. You’ll be able to book A-B-C awards, you’ll just have to pay for (A to B)+(B to C) when, as is more frequent, A-B-C is not available but A+B and B+C are only available as separate awards.
