- The entire episode "Lemons", instantly hailed as a highly moving and meaningful discussion of the issues that arose during the 2016 presidential election, and pegged by many as likely to be seen by future generations as an icon of the period's entertainment.
- Bonus points for the fact that, instead of painting the people who voted for Donald Trump as a bunch of bigots, the episode took a balanced approach; at least one of the characters who voted for Trump was given very sympathetic reasons, and the show pointed out several of the flaws that Hilary Clinton had as a candidate, with the episode ending on the message that people on both sides need to stop calling each other names and try to understand each other, so the country won't stay so divided.
- Bow finally standing up to Ruby in "Mother Nature" with Dre supporting Bow's choice to kick Ruby out of the house. After several seasons of Bow putting up with Ruby's rudeness towards her face in her own home, it's really something.
- When Junior intends to take a walkabout trip to Australia during his gap year, Bow, who until then had been supportive of his choice, finally brings the hammer down and tells him to get his shit in gear and do something with his time off school.
Awesome / Black-ish
