Kendall goes upstairs sobbing while Jabby follows her up to yell some more. Jabby says a kid who got the only solo should not be “sitting on her mother’s lap crying.” Downstairs, Shrill is telling Jabby she can’t say things to hurt Kendall and Jabby says she can say whatever she wants. Shrill says Kendall’s sobbing because her feelings were hurt. Jabby does not understand this because she doesn’t have feelings except when Maddie forgets a dance, apparently. All of a sudden Shrill screams “we can’t compete” and walks out. Jabby is unfazed and says “Next!” Seriously, don’t these people ever get tired of storming out?
Shrill must have come back (or never really left) because now the moms are chatting upstairs while Jabby rehearses the group number (which Kendall is part of). Holly says she’s afraid of what they will have to deal with this season because Jabby’s become an inflated and egotistical monster. Shrill thinks Jabby believes that she can have any kid she wants because they all these people came to her audition.
Gia? (not sure if it was her or not) interrupts rehearsal to let Jab know the new moms have arrived. Upstairs, Christi’s asking for a nail file to sharpen her “cat claws.” Christi’s been uncharacteristically quiet this episode, what’s up with that?
Jabby says there are two girls who have the most potential. Ava, who, at 10 years old, could bring down the group’s age, but who, alas, does not have a side aerial, or Ally, a 13-year-old who would allow them to compete in the 13-15 category.
Jabby says that even though Brooke and Paige are both gone, she’s only picking one replacement for now and that replacement is Ally.
Hey, now would be a great time to go to Ohio, don’t you think? Crazy Cathy and Vivi are eating sundaes at an ice cream parlor that looks suspiciously like the beef jerky store. Cathy tells us that since NATIONALS, her team kind of “blew up.” Justice is not coming back because his mom, Tanya (aka Chacha DeGregorio), doesn’t want to participate, but they don’t need her anyway. She asks Vivi if she misses Justice and Vivi just looks at her like “why are you talking to me, crazy lady?”
Then Cathy, apropos of nothing, tells Vivi to look at her and slow down. Huh? Cathy asks if Vivi would be okay if she put together a new team that Vivi wasn’t on. Vivi’s like “FUCK YEAH, I’ll be okay!” Maybe not, but her eyes did get a little less dead for a second. Cathy’s big idea is to use all boys. Vivi thinks that’s a great idea and an all-boy team would win a lot. She is actually a little animated until Cathy beats her down by picking chocolate out of her teeth. Then she forces Vivi validate her and tell her that her all-boy idea IS brilliant.
