“OK, so I’m just your normal, normal, extremely handsome, unbelievably charismatic Black dude who’s observed a way to really go from broke to the Oaks with out a bounce shot, Number 1 strike or currently being Tyler Perry,” Anthony Anderson’s Dre tells us at the major of black-ish‘s very last episode at any time. “I may perhaps have developed up just a kid from Compton, but now I’m residing the American dream.”
But that desire does not appear the exact to Dre as it did 8 seasons back, and as the series finale gets underway, he has to appropriate nosy neighbor Janine’s assumption that the going packing containers in his driveway indicate that he, Bow and the children are going to Atlanta. He pointedly tells her that Ruby and Pops are getting off, then tries to disregard her comments about the “dirty South” and so on. “Well, probably I was living the Black American desire,” he voiceovers, “because things like this nonetheless comes about each day.”

And that receives Dre to imagining that possibly Sherman Oaks is not the location for him and his relatives any more. “Ever given that we moved in, there is normally been the feeling that we were being oddities,” he suggests, having steamed as he mulls the subject for the duration of a Stevens & Lido pitch assembly. His answer? Paint his residence black to notify his neighbors what is what. But Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, who comes about to be at the assembly for an ice product organization she’s symbolizing, wonders why he doesn’t do one thing that will make him content instead than his neighbors mad.
So he brings the idea of generating a big transform to Bow, and she agrees: She needs to sell the dwelling and shift to a Black neighborhood. “Mama was mistaken!” he cries in glee. “After 20 a long time, you last but not least figured out what to say to turn me on!” she responds, laughing, as they embrace.
So they buy a property, Dre moves to freelance at the ad firm (“You’ve turn into a single of the truest voices in my life” his manager tells him, in a uncommon moment of earnestness), and all which is left is to say goodbye to their vacant home. And they do so by means of a vivid homegoing ceremony in which all of the Johnsons (besides Devante) put a rose in a coffin that is carried out into the street when the family members — and, sooner or later, absolutely everyone they know — dances along at the rear of it.
Dre’s past voiceover notes that he and his household are dwelling his variation of the American aspiration. And then we slash to the Latino few that moves into the property the Johnsons have just vacated. The few be aware that they, much too, are dwelling the American dream… then Janine rings the doorbell, helps make some casually racist remarks, and the new home owners pretend not to speak English as they press her out.
