Dance Moms season 3 continues on Tuesday, January 22 with an episode called "Liar Liar, Dance Mom on Fire!" and it looks like someone has got a secret that they're keeping from everyone else. 

First up, let's take a look at the official synopsis of the episode from Lifetime:

Abby couldn't be more thrilled to have a new star on team, but Melissa is starting to feel like Sophia is pushing Maddie out of the spotlight and into the corner. When Abby assigns Maddie and Kendall a duet, Melissa pretends to be happy about it but confides in Abby the awful truth. Jill, Christi, Kelly and Holly band together and try to get Melissa to admit her deceit. Meanwhile, Abby once again bans Brooke from the competition but gives Paige a solo so she can try to justify her spot on the team.

From that we can gather that (surprise, surprise) one of the moms is (gasp!) not telling the truth about something. I wonder if Melissa's "awful truth" is about the duet between Maddie and Kendall. Something tells me that it's going to involve the skill level of Kendall compared to Maddie and that maybe Kendall getting the duet isn't so much about giving her a chance as it is about Abby continuing to punish the dancers who abandoned her a couple weeks back. 

In the preview video for the episode, we can see that Kendall getting to dance a duet with Abby is indeed less like a dream come true and more like a nightmare. Abby seems to be taking great pleasure in picking on everything that Kendall is doing, perhaps to prove to her mom that Kendall isn't quite the dancer she thinks she is. 

Here are a few more things we know from the video:

  • Abby apparently picks on Kendall the entire week. 
  • Abby is going to make Kendall cry. 
  • Abby eloquently tells Jill what she can do with her opinions. 
  • Abby doesn't wake up amazing. It takes her hours to get that way. 

What do you think after reading the synopsis and checking out the preview for this episode of Dance Moms? Do you think Abby is being more cruel than normal to Kendall? Got any ideas on what Melissa is hiding from everyone?

Dance Moms airs on Tuesday nights at 9pm on Lifetime.
