The episode starts with all the moms having a meeting in the parking lot. They feel they need to stand up for Kelly, Paige and Brooke. As Abby sees them enter the ladies room together she knows something is going on. Let the stand off begin. They are all sitting there giving Abby the silent treatment. I don’t think she really minds. She is ready to do pyramid but there are no students in class. So she decides to start working on Ally’s solo. Shelly tells Abby that it’s the moms not the kids. Abby feels if the kids wanted to be there they would. The fact that they are children doesn’t matter, they can still be there. Abby glances outside in the parking lot and sees the moms there. She demands to know whats going on. Abby then phones the police and asks them to come deal with the trespassers.
Now we find ourselves at Candy Apples dance company. Jill stops by to visit Cathy and let her know what was going on at ALDC. Cathy and Jill get into an argument.
At ALDC, the new dancers arrive. Abby is excited as she feels everyone is replaceable. She now has Ally, Bella, Kaeli, and one more on the way.
Christi has a nice house. The moms are planning a performance with the girls on their own to show Abby they don’t need her. The girls will choreograph their own performance.
Abby gets a call from Yvette. Her and her daughter, Hadley were on Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition. She says she is looking forward to seeing them at the competition. Hadley is having a hard time moving past the comments made about her by Abby. Abby called her roadkill. Which made a great soundbite for the show. In my opinion, was to harsh of a comment to make to a child. But I am not a dance teacher.
Sophia is the next to arrive. She is a child dance prodigy. When she asks Abby for clarification on the steps, Abby cannot believe what she is hearing. She tells Sophia ” That voice is killing me. Minnie Mouse already has a job.”
They are travelling to Fort Wayne, Indiana. Sophia has a solo. The group number is called cry.
Kelly’s house is where the group is rehearsing for their performance sans Abby. They will be performing at the mall. The girls are excited. They are performing at Century III Mall in Pittsburgh, PA. The moms are concerned because there is nobody at the mall. Their post Abby career may be over before it begins.
Gloria, Kaeli’s mother, goes behind Abby’s back and puts in a solo for her daughter. Ally is first up with her solo, Forever and a day. She was good. Hadley’s turn is next with, More. She is good also. Sophia is next with her solo. This child’s turns are incredible.
Backstage Bella is upset that she is the only one without a solo. This is news to Abby. Abby says that anyone who goes behind her back is off the team. She is not taking anymore crap from the moms. A fight ensues between the new moms Gloria and Marcia. Time for the group performances. The girls did really well. But this to me feels like something Cathy would have done.
Ally won 2nd place in the teen solo division.
Sophia won 1st place in the junior solo division.
Group won 2nd place junior small group division.
Abby lost to Yvette’s small group. But Abby congratulates her. Abby is not impressed with 2nd place. As she likes to tell everyone, 2nd is the first loser.
The girls perform at the mall. The place is packed. They are good but not amazing. Christi thinks they were amazing. Holly thinks they need their dance teacher.
