This recap isn’t The Avengers but check it out anyway.
Get ready for a week of tense rehearsals, not-so-tense performances, and a DOUBLE ELIMINATION. They’re really ratcheting up the drama! RATINGS!
I love that the episode starts off with Tom Bergeron saying that Urkel was “put in the vault.” That’s the first time I’ve ever felt anything besides annoyance/indifference towards him.
Donald & Peta. Coming off a high from last week (or maybe it was the crack), Donald’s ready to take on this week’s challenges. So, to be the best, he studies the best (MY BOFY), Derek. Trying to become a stereotype, Donald says ”They feet was amazing.” They serve up a tense Tango:
His frame’s solid, and his steps are in time. And he is sharp. But I don’t think he ever fully straightened either leg once, so it looked like he was crouching his way through the dance.
Derek & Maria: After getting a perfect 30 last week, Derek and Maria have a tense rehearsal (it’s also curse-word-laden for Derek). Talking about trying to get the best out of her he says “Sometimes you hurt the ones you love the most.” And I’ve got the welts to prove it. They dance a very romantic, emotionally resonant Viennese Waltz.
I didn’t pay attention because it was so lovely. Which makes me worry he’s cheating on me.
Melissa & Maks: OH BOY. Things are more than tense in rehearsal. Maks angrily curses more times than I can count. He complains that she can’t even get three simple moves so they can move on. He follows this all up by saying, “You’re making me look like a villain. You’re making me look like a terrorist.” The jokes write themselves. They fumble through a cougarlicious Foxtrot.
She stumbles through the steps in the beginning but she gets better as it goes on. And most of the time her free hand looks like some scary Dark Crystal bird-creature. Otherwise she’s confident and relaxed.
Kathrine and Mark. They’re stressed and tense too. Do you see a theme? They do a lovely, flowy, flawless Viennese Waltz.
It feels like the producers told the judges to fight over each couple during each judges session. Let’s see what happens next.
