But of course, Jabby was only fucking with everyone. She says to Melissa, “all personal issues aside, who will win us the most points?” Oh, so why didn’t you just say that in the first place! In that case, Melissa has to go with Chloe – but she doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Way to stand up for your opinions, Melissa. Kendall is crying and angry and she says they already knew who was going to get the part. I can’t blame her for this because there is NO DOUBT in my mind that Jabby was going to give the solo to Chloe the whole time and it’s mean of her to have put the other girls through that.
Shrill yells about how it’s not fair. No, it isn’t, but Jabby hasn’t ever once been fair since day one and Shrill should know that by now. Holly’s like, “OMG, calm down, it’s just a solo, get over it.” See, Holly knows the score. She deems the whole thing ludicrous and calmly leaves the room. See, that’s how you storm out classy.
Kendall interviews that she wanted the solo badly and she beat Justice and Chloe can’t. Oh no you di’n’t! In the dressing room (or wherever), Shrill has pulled herself together for the cameras and says Kendall did her best and Chloe deserves the solo. Kendall angrily says she doesn’t. Heh. I do feel bad for Kendall though.
It’s the day before NATIONALS and Chloe’s rehearsing her solo. She is freaking herself out to the point that she has to go sit down for a minute and pull herself together. Jabby says that Christi gets Chloe all worked up and it’s her fault that Chloe isn’t as confident as she should be. She tells Chloe that she needs to go into that competition and intimidate Justice.
Uh-oh. Here come the Candy Apple’s. They enter the studio and Cathy says it’s a “little under our budget.” Presumably because it doesn’t have a beef jerky store attached. She looks through the observation window into the room that ALDC is practicing in and makes noises at them.
Seriously, what is wrong with her? And she has her boy toy with her: Mitchell the “guest choreographer.” Is he still a guest if he choreographs every dance?
Cathy tells the Apple’s they need to keep their “status.” What status? Ninth place? Cathy says Justice needs to beat Chloe and she leads the Apple’s in chant of “clean Chloe’s clock.” Wow, she really is nuts.
In another studio, there’s a whole bunch of drama I can’t follow over phone calls. Cathy decides to go interrupt Jabby’s rehearsal to get to the bottom of it, or failing that, just be a pain in the ass. She tries to force her way into Jabby’s studio, but Jabby tells her to go away or she’s calling the police.
