Dance Moms season 3 continues on Tuesday, January 29 with an episode called "Revenge of the Replacements," and it looks like fans are going to get to see something they never, ever thought they'd see on the show. 

First up, let's take a look at the official synopsis for the episode:

Melissa tries desperately to get Maddie back in favor with Abby. Meanwhile, Mackenzie struggles with her new "big girl" role. Also, this week, the ALDC dancers go up against the very same girls who replaced them during the moms' silent protest.

From that, it doesn't look like anything too unusual is going to happen in the episode, but just wait until you feast your eyes on the preview video below. 

In the preview video, we can see that there will be some tears in this episode. Again, that's nothing all that unusual on this show, considering how Abby, and even some of the moms on the show, can usually cause at least one of the kids to cry in each episode. But what is surprising is that it's Abby who's crying this time. 

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

  • Some of the tears in this episode may be caused by injuries and not just by flying insults. 
  • Christi is going to OFF on Miss Abby. 
  • Abby apparently doesn't like being called "Fatty, fatty, fatty, fatty!" Hey, not that I blame her but does anyone else find it interesting that she cries over that but has no trouble calling small children things like "idiot" and "awful"? Not so much fun when the shoe is on the other foot, is it Abby?

So what do you think after reading the synopsis and watching the preview for this episode of Dance Moms? Do you think Abby is really crying over being called "fatty" or is that just some clever editing and it's really something else that brings her to tears? Even after all that she's said to the kids and the moms, do you still think it's okay for Christi to go off on her like that?

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