Okay, Gasmii. I apologize in advance. Usually I am able to re-watch the show at work to get photos and go over anything I may have missed the first time, but today I am having technical difficulties with the video and I can’t exactly call IT and ask them to fix it so I can watch Dance Moms. Consequently, there may be more errors than usual and the photos will be whatever I can scrounge from the Internet. I am so sorry and I promise to address any mistakes in the next recap. Thank you for your patience!!!
Previously: Shrill complained endlessly and ALDC chopped down that apple tree.
The girls enter the studio chanting “chop, chop, chop” because of their victory in Ohio. Jabby says that the weekend wasn’t brilliant, but it was successful. They set out to beat the “Wicked Witch of the West” (Cathy) and did so in every category. Jabby interviews that she thinks all this success will put her in a good mood this week. Wow, isn’t that one of the seven signs of the Apocalypse? Should I be stockpiling ammo and beef jerky?
Pyramid time. Paige is on the bottom as expected, but at least she is not back on probation. Jabby says that Paige beat Kendall and finished in the top ten. HOWEVER, Jabby says Paige needs to do the choreography she is given and not allow her psycho mom to interfere. Next is Mackenzie, then Brooke, who is also off probation. Brooke interviews that she is happy because being on Jabby’s bad side is pretty sucky. They inexplicably show a flashback of Jabby throwing the chair. I guess that’s Jabby’s bad side in action, but it wasn’t really directed at Brooke. So whatever, Lifetime. (I need to make a macro that says that.)
Second row, we have Nia, who Jabby says has really matured. Next is Maddie who was excellent in the group number. My notes say something about Maddie having a “big victory” last week, so I’m not sure what Jabby was talking about. Did she have a solo we didn’t see? I will have to double check that when I get back on-line.
On top of the pyramid is Chloe and not the three pictures of Maddie that Christi had predicted. Jabby says that Chloe won a costume award for her Angry Bird solo and made the top ten. Jabby actually says she is proud of Chloe, which is another sign of the Apocalypse. I’m starting to get really scared, you guys.
This week, they will be going to Starbound in Atlanta. Jabby tells the moms that she might even sit on a veranda and have herself a mint julep. But first there is work to be done. The last Starbound competition they attended ended in tears (Jabby’s) because they lost by “one-tenth of a point to the Wicked Witch of the West.” Jabby says that Cathy’s behavior was “out of control” and the whole thing was a fiasco.
