"Good Dre Hunting" starts with Bow announcing that she's going to therapy.  Andre and his mom laugh at Bow because "black people have gotten along just fine without therapy." As a black man, Dre has his own ways of coping with drama.  He's seen losing his temper on numerous occasions.


Bow tells Dre that he needs therapy but he initially disagrees.  Dre and his mother tell Bow all the reasons that she needs therapy, including the ghosts of all her dead patients and the fact that her children don't need her anymore.  Blackish is one of the best shows on television!
