Black-ish Season 7 Episode 4 Recap:

Episode 4 is titled ‘Dre at Home Order’. It sees Dre involved in homeschooling since his wife, Dr. Rainbow “Bow” Johnson is out in the hospital saving lives. So Dre takes the reins of controlling the Johnson household and this means he needs to take care of the twins’ homeschooling prep. Jack and Diane are also home and Dre believes that he is doing a superb job. However, the kids have a difficult time coping up with the situation — just like their dad. Dre adjusts his schedule and personal lifestyle to tend to the kids but is eventually overwhelmed with the neverending chores.

When the strain takes its toll on him, he has a mental breakdown. I fact, Dre is so exhausted that when the delivery guy gives him the wrong box of cookies, he smashes the entire box — while shouting that he wishes he can reverse time to 2019.

On the other hand, Dre and Bow’s son, Junior, is going steady with his girlfriend, Olivia. He engages in daily video calls to combat the pain of staying apart. To bring her closer to the fam, he even arranges Zoom hangouts between his family and Olivia. However, one day, when Bow says that she just wants to relax and not partake in the activity, Junior becomes upset. They discuss the situation and Bow realizes that her son is in love for the first time. The two ladies then have a remote chat about Junior’s quirks.
