She comes back in to lounge and Bitchette asks if she is okay. She says no, because Jessi is being “sent into a battlefield for this no-winning situation.” I’m sure the people who actually do go into battlefields appreciate the severity of your problems, Susan.
Bob, of course, is (deservedly) pissed. She yells that Hannah is a good dancer and getting better. Susan says she is good, but not amazing. She says she’s not gonna “sugarcoat” it – Jessi is at a way higher level than Hannah. Susan continues railing about how it took Jessi six years to get to do a duet with the dancer she admired most. Well, maybe you should have famewhored her out six years earlier. It could have happened sooner.
Bob says she’s hurt. She can’t believe Susan is being such a bitch because she thought they were friends. Yeah, I’m totally shocked, too Bob. Susan seems completely even-keeled and stable. Bob gets up and leaves.
Ani interviews that she feels bad for Bob and she would be livid if anyone spoke about Kimmy that way. Take a swipe at her, Ani. We’ll back you up.
Susan takes Jessi outside to talk sense into her.
Susan says it’s a privilege for anyone to dance with her and it’s not fair to Jessi. Jessi calmly says she has no issues with Hannah. She says she trusts VictAng and she wishes Susan would calm down. But Susan says she won’t let her do the trio if it’s not up to her level. Jessi’s like, (more or less) “you’re on crack, mom” and then warns Susan that she’d better not storm out again or VictAng will kick Jessi out. All Susan says is, “do you know how many studios would love to have you?” Ugh. Jessi again says she’s NOT LEAVING.
Well, that was fun.
Let’s break up the tension a little. VictAng bring the kids to visit real circus performers to get into character for the group number. Each kid is paired with a circus person and they get to play on all the crazy contraptions. Lucas does some crazy poses, Jessi gets to go on the “silks” and they all have a great time.
Then Victor wants some of the action so he gets on the “lyra,” which Wikipedia tells me is an aerial hoop.
The chief circus lady, who sounds like Marge Simpson’s sister Selma, tells him to keep his day job.
But enough levity. That blood feud isn’t going to fight itself. Victor rehearses the trio and says that Hannah works really hard and deserves to be part of the trio. Angel says the inspiration for the number is bitchy women, i.e. the dance moms.
Jessi says she, Sammy and Hannah have “different techniques, different styles, different everything,” but she’s going to do her best to make the trio work. Jessi really has become a lot more likeable since her rocky first episode. And it’s especially amazing considering her mom is such a psycho-bitch.
In the lounge, Susan is complaining that Hannah hasn’t “earned her stripes.” Bob says she know that Susan and Jessi have been through a lot and she’s really proud of how far Jessi’s come. Susan’s like “O RLY?” She says she overheard Bob saying yesterday that Jessi is only any good because she’s dancing with little kids and she would be “creamed” in the real world.
This devolves into a screaming match, which can be heard in the studio. Poor Hannah starts crying, because she can’t dance knowing that people are fighting over what a sucky dancer she is. Poor Hannah.
These moms are horrible. Have I mentioned that?
Victor takes the rehearsal outside to get away from the screaming. Luckily the parking lot isn’t on fire today.
