Time for Dance Moms! The girls are going to Ohio. Which means more drama with the Apple Cores. OMG at Peyton’s abs. You could do your laundry on them. She is in great shape. She is still to tall to be with this group.
Abby is furious that the girls got third place last week. Abby’s hair is a disaster. Peyton in on the bottom of the period because she cried when her skull was pierced with barrettes. Unacceptable. Your mother may be drilling holes through your skull with bobby pins, but save the tears for your pillow. Next is Brooke. She fucked up the group routine last week. But at least she didn’t cry. Then we have, Nia. Sigh. Mackenzie is next for acting her age in the dressing room. Then Paige, Kendall and Chloe. The trio that won first. Abby is still not happy. Maddie is on top. More talk about Maddie carrying the team. No solo for Maddie. Solos go to Chloe and Kendall along with intense pressure. The group dance is called “just another number” to show them they are all replaceable.
Abby says that Peyton stands out like a sore thumb. Um DUH. I have been saying that since last season.
At Cathy’s studio, they are doing a lot of cardio. Their group is doing a lyrical dance which is Abby’s specialty. Her choreographer says that “Abby’s girls do the same six steps over and over.” Cathy gets a girls hopes up for a solo and then gives it to the ringer, Lucas. Lucas’s Mom is hanging out with the choreographer.
ALDC moms are pissed that Kendall got a private before her solo was assigned. Chloe is doing a Katy Perry inspired Jazz routine. Kendall’s solo is also Jazz and inspired by Lady Gaga. Kendall’s practice before hand gave her a big head start on Chloe. In the group rehearsal, Abby calls Peyton out on her size. She is threatening to pull her because the group is supposed to look like clones. Peyton doesn’t fit the part.
At Candy Apples, Kaya (a dance mom) says that she feels Blake has over choreographed the number. Basically she thinks it is above the skill level of the group.
Time for competition. Chloe is super nervous. Her mom is not helpful. Kendall is nervous and Abby yells at her and tells her if she cries one tear, she is not going the solo. In Cathy’s camp, Lucas is relaxed and ready.
Lucas is up first in solos. He already has the boys advantage. He performs well, but it was nothing special. Very little boy trying to be Rico Suave. Kendall is up next. She was killing it but has a stumble early on. She recovered well and technically was miles above Lucas. Chloe can beat Kendall if she can get her head on straight. Meanwhile, Peyton’s mom, Leslie contradicts something Abby said while they sit in the audience right in front of Cathy. Abby is already planning to draw and quarter Leslie in the dressing room and pee on her open wounds. Chloe was very good. I thought her arms were sloppy at times and her face was not good. But she was lovely. It’s going to be close in my opinion.
Abby criticizes Kendall for blowing her turn. She tells Chloe that after seeing Kendall stumble she played it safe. I love Chloe but I have to agree. For some reason Chloe danced last when it was supposed to be Kendall. This is a huge point of controversy with the moms. The thing is Chloe’s mom knew Chloe was going last before it happened. Something is fishy. This means Chloe will win but it will forever have an asterisk next to the win with the ALDC moms. Chloe can’t catch a break.
Meanwhile Leslie has been sobbing in the hallway because Abby told her to shut up in the audience.
Time for the group numbers. The brief glimpses of the other teams prove this competition is no joke. ALDC was up first. I thought it was great. They flashed over to the judges though and they did not seem to be paying any attention. Seriously. One appeared to be texting. I am nervous. Too edgy and out there for the judges? Oh shit. Candy Apples probably just won. That was good. Really good. Add in the boy bonus x 2? I think they just won. Fuck. This is bad.
Time for solo trophies. Kendall got FIFTH. I think she was robbed. She would have won it all if not for one stumble. Lucas gets fourth. Shit Chloe got second. In groups Candy Apples got second. ALDC got first.
In the dressing room Peyton gets reamed out for her mother’s behavior. Leslie and Abby get into it. But from the previews it looks like Peyton and her incredible abs will be humiliated on one more episode at least.
Did anyone watch?
