When Abby asked Kalani and Kira why they are late, Kira says they were stuck in traffic. Holly thinks Abby has favorites. In Abby’s pyramid, Mackenzie is at the bottom because she was not weird enough in their freak show performance. Next at the bottom is Maddie for not having a solo. In the upper part of the pyramid, pictures of Nia and Kendall are placed. Kalani is on top of the pyramid. That just puts more salt on Holly’s wound.

The group is going to Detriot in the weekend for the Energy Dance Competition. Abby announces that Kalani and Maddie will have solo performances. She knows that everyone is looking forward for their face off.

Abby’s group performance will have the routine “Orange Is the New Black” (OITNB). The girls’ number is going to be a jail performance.

In the mothers’ room, Holly admits to Kira that she is mad about their special treatment. Kira apologizes. However, she defends herself that it was not her decision. Holly walks out.
