This recap of Dear White People Season 3, Episode 6 contains spoilers. You can read our recap of the previous episode by clicking these words.

Episode 6 was all about taking charge, taking control of groups that need fixing.

After Pastiche made him look like an Uncle Tom, Troy decides to lead an insurrection. He wants to oust Kurt with an ultimatum. It goes well at first, but unfortunately, Kurt turns it round by threatening some of the members based on the connections he has. Episode 6 sees Troy down in the dumps, that’s until Abigail gives him a pep talk and asks him to rise to the occasion.

As for Gabe in Episode 6, he is down in the dumps. The bar he works at offers dire tips, and no-one agrees on anything at the Labor Movement. He also needs funding for his film, but he gets mocked at the suggestion a white person will get a grant accepted in 2019 for a movie. With tensions high in the Labor Movement, Gabe makes an impassioned speech about unionizing, which gets the nod from Moses Brown. I’ve come to learn that Gabe is a “spur of the moment” guy, that only feels how he feels in the time he’s in.

Reggie is spending most of his time improving the app founded by Moses Brown. However, what he doesn’t realize is that Joelle feels like she is losing time with him over the technology. In Episode 6, Reggie has become so obsessed with the app that he’s started adjusting the code — Moses is so impressed that he asks him to lead the development team to improve the functionality.

Dear White People Season 3, Episode 6 sees a few of the characters making a name for themselves and making things happen, rather than sitting still.

Winchester’s Observations

  • Samantha is still making her new film, but we are still uncertain of what it will be about.
  • Brooke is being off with Kelsey after their steamy date.
