Last time on Dance Moms
, Nia and Kalani got some extra special attention from the Debbie Allen Dance Academy, which was necessary to help re-build their self-esteem after Abby Lee Miller once again left the girls in the dust. It seems like this time we might actually see some more Abby, and it's probably based on some kind of obligation based on her contract with Lifetime.
"Last week, Abby locked the studio doors," Jill says in this episode, "Abby's New Favorites." However, due to social media, the mothers were aware that classes were still going on. Jessalynn is straight with Abby, asking if Abby is still interested in running the competition team. "Um, no," Abby responds after a pause. Even though she's checked out, she still expects the girls to be working their hardest. "Why aren't they warming up?" Abby retaliates. The moms can all agree for once that this sort of attitude is pretty uncalled for.
