It was the moment Dance Moms fans have been waiting for: Chloe and Maddie going head-to-head with the same dance routine on an even playing field. So much suspense. So much drama. So much for fairness!
Just when it seemed like Chloe won fair and square, it was revealed that the judges calculated the scores wrong and technically it was teacher's pet Maddie who came out on top. And it was all because their coach Abby Lee Miller cried foul!
Abby was busted when the dance competition official thanked her for bringing the discrepency in scoring to his attention. Of course, that was right after she told the Dance Moms she had nothing to do with the judging fiasco.
Sadly, that was just one of Abby's misteps in this week's epsiode. Aside from (allegedly) giving Maddie and her sister Mackenzie private lessons, the dishonest dance instructor felt the need to overshare her emotions with her young students.
Broaching the tough subject of cancer is admirable but as usual, Abby took things one step too far and turned what should have been a reflective moment for the group into a pity party for herself. Abby, save it for your therapist!
One good thing that came from all the cancer talk was that frenemies Christie and Kelly were able to put aside their bickering and see that life is too short to argue over trivial matters.
