After several months in Hollywood, Abby returns to the Abby Lee Dance Company to find her dancers have been slacking off...all except Maddie and Mackenzie. While she was gone, all the moms made a pact to turn down Abby's invitation for their daughters to perform on national television. But Melissa eventually folded, causing a new rift between her and the other mothers. Meanwhile, Abby pits Maddie against Chloe with two opposite solos: Tap versus Hip Hop. And now with Asia on the team, Mackenzie is forced to step up her game.
