The drama rages on as the young talents soar on Abby Lee Miller's "Dance Moms." The upcoming episode, like the previous one, shows that it is not running out of hardships and bickering not from the girls but from their moms themselves.
In episode 8, the challenge doesn't seem to be getting any easier as Abby takes the girls to a cemetery. She believes that immersing them in a spooky environment will help them embody another group routine, which will be graveyard-inspired. The contemporary routine is appropriately dubbed as "Six Feet Underneath," and will be a stab at the teen competition.
Meanwhile, Lilliana Ketchman and Elliana Walmsley are pitted against each other in the junior category. According to reports, Walmsley will be performing a Charlie Chaplin-inspired routine, which will unfortunately fall short in her hopes to be on top. Ketchman, on the other hand, will perform an acrobatic spectacle that puts her at the top.
From the looks of it, every episode after the other carries a lot of pressure for the girls. They are most of the time made to compete against each other to squeeze more talent, or asked to win a competition, no questions asked.
It can be recalled that in episode 7 dubbed "The Fresno Curse," everyone felt the pressure and the controversy of the racially charged group dance. If there was anything else that was rather taxing, that is the feeling that all eyes are focused on Nia Frazier as she was taking the lead for the "The Help"-themed number.
As for Chloe Lukasiak's rumored participation for the finale of the season, no update has been gathered aside from the fact that Abby is trying to get all the help she can to stay afloat in the business. In order to continue with the luxury of advertising her dance group while getting paid for it, she needs to turn all stones.
"Dance Moms" season 7 episode 8 titled "ALDC Ain't Dead Yet" airs on Jan. 17, Tuesday, at 9 p.m. ET on Lifetime.
