Black-ish Spoiler: Black Santa/White Christmas
“Black-ish” Season 1 Episode 10 “Black Santa/White Christmas” will air on Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2014, at 9:30 p.m. on ABC. It’s the show’s Christmas episode, and Dre wants to become Santa Claus. However, things will not go as planned. But before anything else, here’s a quick recap of the events from last week.
In “Colored Commentary” (air date: Dec. 3, 2014), Dre (Anthony Anderson) thought that they needed to be more involved and supportive as a family, so during Jack’s game, they were all there wearing their Team Johnson shirts. Bow (Tracee Ellis Ross) noticed that the commentator at the game was making inappropriate comments about how Jack was playing. When she brought this up to Dre, he disagreed with her in front of the other parents. Bow was mad at her husband. She thought they were supposed to have each other’s back in the family.
During an event at Dre’s office, which had something to do with art, Bow thought she was giving a good impression by citing how much she knew of the artists. However, she made the mistake of talking about a different painter that Dre noticed the guests were looking at his wife in a funny way. He didn’t say anything, as he thought he knew better than to disagree with Bow. When she realized her booboo, she was mad at him again for allowing her to make a fool of herself. Why didn't he say anything to her? Dre was getting confused about what exactly does "having each other's back" entail.
When they got home, the kids damaged the wall, and Dre sensed that they were lying about what actually happened. To get to his wife’s good graces, Dre made sure to get to the bottom of this with his children and found out the truth from the youngest, who snitched on her brothers and sister.
Bow was still not appeased even though Dre settled and figured out the matter with the kids. So in the next game, he tried to confront the commentator but ended up appearing as a rude person who harassed older people.
The game organizers decided to temporarily ban Dre from watching the game because of what just happened, but Bow defended her husband and showed him that this was what it meant to have each other’s back in the family.
