The Dance Moms will go face to face against their archenemies, the Candy Apple moms. Meanwhile, Kelly, Brooke and Paige are still AWOL so Abby uses her secret dancing weapon, Payton. As if the big dance battle isn't enough stress, Abby punishes Maddie by taking away her solo.
It's the annual Abby Lee Dance Company recital, which means two things--all the girls get to perform and Abby is a nervous wreck.
