We are back to finally get to the competition portion of this two part episode. The older ALDC girls decided not to participation in this competition but instead just show up to sell t-shirts and hang out in the audience.
We start right away with Abby ordering around two women whose faces we do not see who have delivered her Long John Silvers meal to the dressing room. She’s outraged that they forgot the cole slaw, until she realizes it was there all along. I should point out that Abby has just gotten one of those fat surgeries where she is only supposed to eat two teaspoons of tofu and drink green juice for the rest of her life or her stomach will implode. Also, I ask Lady C for a screen cap of Abby eating Long John Silvers and it was pretty much the only time she has ever complained about a photo request. When she reluctantly went to get screen grabs she was thrilled to tell me that it was not show on the teaser. The best part is that when she is done eating she has one of the remaining Dance Moms….Maesi’s mom come remove the trash and walk it to the trash can that is literally two feet away from her. Such an Abby move. She did offer to share the “crunchies” with the others. She’s right. It really is the best part. Every time I see this I want Captain D’s.
Elliana is thrilled with her more difficult choreography and that she is now getting more attention. You know, like when Abby tells her she wishes to have a cattle prod to use on her.
Maesi’s solo is up first. She is sick as a dog but gives it her all. It is also her birthday. She’s very pale and crying after the performance backstage but I thought her solo went very well. She seems very disappointed in performance however. She is crying for her mama and she dashes back stage. If Abby blasts this kid, I will have a fit.
Meanwhile, Abby says that if Christi comes into the auditorium she will leave. Gianna points out that she has been in there the whole time sitting quietly a few rows back. Instead of watching her minis, Abby walks out. Jesus, Abby. You are worse than ever this season. The remaining dance moms inexplicably run after her. Why? Sit down and watch your kid’s solo, fools.
Brynn goes to talk to Abby despite the older girls pressuring her shun her. Abby eventually goes in to watch the solos. Brynn and Ashlee approach Abby and Brynn says she really wants to dance with Abby and Gianna. The other dance moms are pissed. They want to let Abby know they will never, ever, dance with her again.
Chloe has the lead in the group dance. I do not like creepy dances, or creepy movies and this is a creepy one. I am counting the days until Hallmark goes to 24hrs of Christmas movies. In case you are wondering there are 37 days until the first new Christmas movie. I think there are 33 new ones this year.
The creepy dance was pretty good, but Chloe’s lead was more of an acting part than a dancing part. I would not call that a lead dancer. But still, the routine was well performed.
When it comes to the solos, there are no age groups for the solos. Basically the top score win regardless of age and experience. There is no second place. That’s going to be tough. Lili pulls out the win for her blue moon routine! Awesome. That makes Abby happy. Chloe’s group won the group high score.
Chloe is happy for the win but still wishes she was dancing with the ALDC girls. She wants to see if she can dance with her old friends now that they have left the ALDC. Christi tells MDP that Chloe is leaving to dance with her old friends. They do not take the news well.
I haven’t seen Cameron’s mom for this episode. Jill, Holly, and Kalini’s mom go to see Abby. They tell her that they will not be returning to ALDC, they will compete next week with a new choreographer. They say that Abby abandoned them three weeks ago and the girls realized how harmful some of Abby’s behavior was to them. Abby has a complete emotional breakdown. She says she built a building for $298,000 so their kids would have a place to dance. Abby says she regrets everything and she never dreamed in a million years it would come to this. When the mini moms come back in the OG moms leave with Abby in tears. She tells the new moms that she gave five years of her life and someone just shit on her.
The old moms and friends are thrilled that Chloe is back with them. Again, what happened to Cameron.
Is Abby going to do Where Have All The Children Gone? with the minis? That will be interesting. It looks like Camryn returns next week to join the old school ALDC.
