You’d think that Abby Lee Miller would have a little time to tone down the crazy during the break between Season 4 and Season 5 of “Dance Moms,” but she’s Abby, so obviously that wasn’t going to happen.
In the above sneak peek of the show’s Tuesday (Jan. 6) night premiere, Abby shows that even though she’s lost a bit of control of her dancers — seriously, why are there only four girls on the team? — and that she’s completely scatterbrained because of everything that’s going on, this season isn’t going to be any less full of drama than usual.
Based on the clips, it seems like she is still completely set on taking her team to Los Angeles, where she’s planning on opening up another studio, but, honestly, that doesn’t really make sense. Sure, she’ll be able to draw in the girls and the moms with the promise of stardom and fame, but logistically, how is it going to work? Is she going to leave behind her original studio? Are the girls going to leave the East Coast and move to LA? And, most importantly, is that where Chloe is right now? Because, seriously, where is Chloe?
In the below video, Chloe is nowhere to be seen during what looks to be some sort of dance routine that is blatantly based on “American Horror Story: Freak Show” (one of their last dances was about child abduction, so it kind of makes sense) which raises the question: Did Chloe actually leave the team and the show?
At the end of last season, fans saw Chloe and her mom part ways with the studio, but there was still a bit of mystery as to whether they would actually leave. However, even though she’s not in these clips — and her mom tweeted that she would not be coming back — there’s always a chance that she’ll pop up later in the season.
For now, viewers should all be focusing on the mysterious person that Abby calls towards the end of the clip. Hopefully it’s another good dancer because there is no way the team can survive with only four girls.
“Dance Moms” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime.
