I’m behind on Dance Moms Recap. I have had photos for an episode in my completed photos folder for weeks. But it seems that episode didn’t record. So this Dance Moms recap is just going to be me catching up before the next episode this week. It looks like the episode I missed had a group dance about school shootings, so my DVR did me a favor.
Brady is still getting the royal treatment from Abby. Abby screamed at, Sarah’s mom say, “Your kid sucks.” It was awful. It’s also typical Abby. There is always a favorite like Maddie and now Brady. And always a kid she treats like shit, Chloe, Nia and now Sarah. Now she is torturing Hannah and making her do push ups. Hannah’s mother Ann is sobbing in the bathroom and having a panic attack.
The first duet was Hannah and Lily. I thought it was good, but not great. Abby seemed pleased and said it was better than expected. They were pretty onstage, and sometimes pretty helps. Pressley and Brady had the second duet. I preferred it over the first one but Pressley bobbled one of the lifts. Abby is not amused. Pressley is having a full on panic attack. Backstage Abby told Pressley that picking Brady was not a good choice for her because his level of difficulty is higher than hers. She said she looked clumsy. But it wasn’t a full on Abby ass reaming. It was gentler, with some lube.
The moms all argue about Brady’s special treatment loudly in front of Abby Lee. This is not wise. Oddly, Abby just gives the kids a pep talk. She must be on her meds.
The group dance is called Faith Healer and of course Brady is the healer and the girls all dance around them as he heals their afflictions. The dance was incredible! One of the best ever on Dance Moms. Except, Lily took a hard fall on a flip. Abby is pissed. But the audience still loved it.
Brady and Pressley’s duet won first place. Hannah and Lily took second. The group dance placed first. Backstage Abby wants answers from Lilly. She claims she was too close to Pressley to complete her side aerial but I didn’t see that. in the playback. It looked like she had plenty of room to me. Abby sends the kids out of the room. Then Lily’s mom and Brady’s mom get into it. I do think that Brady’s mom picks on Stacie. Stacie leaves the room and goes to find Lily. Lily wants to quit because everyone yells at her and accuses her of being jealous.
Dance Moms Recap Part 2
In the second episode of the Dance Moms Recap, Abby says she has decided who she is sending home and it’s Brady. WTF? I don’t believe that Abby will go to a competition without her golden boy. He’s her secret weapon. Most of the moms don’t want Brady to leave either. Stacie really wants Brady’s mom to go home. But Abby’s threat sure is stirring the pot again.
Brady will be dancing this week. And I think every one thereafter. He is the lead in the group dance again. The group dance is a tribute to Queen and he will be playing Freddy Mercury. He also has a solo as the black swan. Hannah has a burlesque inspired solo because Abby wants to see if she can do more than pretty lyricals. The third solo goes to GiaNina, It is some sort of tribute to her dead grandma. And if she doesn’t beat Hannah, she is going home. So everyone is sufficiently miserable. I hope Hannah beats Brady.
The usual shout matches happen backstage with the moms. Abby rolls in and remind them that everyone’s replaceable for the millionth time.
Abby and everyone loved Brady’s ballet solo. I was not that impressed. It was technically great and probably had extremely high technical difficulty. But I hated the costume and it distracted me the entire dance. I thought half way through,”Hannah has a chance to beat him.” Abby seemed to think it was God’s gift to humanity though. So I guess not.
Okay, in my opinion, Hannah’s dance was better than Brady’s and I think she can win even with the bonus points for Brady’s boy parts. GiaNina is buckling under the pressure waiting for her turn. Well, it’s anyone’s trophy to win. GiaNina’s solo was flawless and was the only one of the three that gave me an emotional response.
Abby goes backstage and compliments all three soloist with no nitpicking! The team killed the group dance. I predict they win the group and take first, second and third in the solos. This is a very talented team.
Somehow Hannah came in seventh place. That doesn’t seem right to me. Brady came in second. That doesn’t surprise me. GiaNina took home first. That doesn’t surprise me either. But Hannah was robbed. The group dance did get first place.
Abby is furious that Brady came in second and Gianna agrees with her. Abby is looking for the judge’s bio to see what his problem is. She thinks he is jealous of Brady. Sigh. Really, Abby? Of course Abby belittles GiaNina’s win. Brady graciously tells Abby that he thinks GiaNina deserved her win and that she needed it. One of the moms brings out a cake for Brady’s mom. She immediately throws in on the floor in a temper tantrum.
Next week the judges scores arrive to be reviewed.
