On Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 22, the group is heading to a National Championship, and Abby has a lot of balls in the air as she gears up for it.

Can she find Maddie's replacement in time? Will everything come together? We'll find out at the Imagine Dance Challenge, in Woodbridge, Virginia.

Studio Bleu, Abby's nemesis (which she has more than one of, as you know if you watch Dance Moms online) will be there. So it's game on, people.

The competition will feature studios GUNNING for Abby, who refuses to use the routine she planned, shelving it instead to hold in reserve for nationals.

Will this risky move backfire on her?

Chloe gets another dark piece for a solo, as Abby may be sending her a not so subtle message that it's time to win or pull up the stakes or get out.

This week on Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 21, Maddie is absent and Abby Lee Miller is scrambling. What will she do without her star in this competition?

They're off to Shenandoah Valley to do battle with three solos and a group routine called "Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves." Should be a riveting one.

In the pyramid, the bottom row has Maddie, Chloe and Nia, but Sarah didn't make it to first place. She's below MacKenzie and Kendall. So sad for Christy.

With no Kelly Hyland to clash with, Christy seems to be emerging as Abby's chief adversary. She had best watch herself, lest she pay a heavy price.

As rehearsals start, Abby is already comparing the girls to Maddie. When Maddie arrives at the studio later, Abby wants her to share her experiences.

The moms are upset at this, seeing Maddie as being the thorn in each girl's side. Holly then gets more upset when Abby tells Nia to bark like a dog.

It looks like former Dance Moms star Kelly Hyland still cannot stop thinking about Abby Lee Miller and their relationship, which she's not supposed to be discussing.

The former cast member, who is no longer off the show after their epic fight last year, recently shared a tweet that accuses Miller of being TV's biggest bully.

Hyland retweeted an article that asks, "Why is Abby Lee Miller allowed to be a bully?" while questioning the "teaching" you see when you watch Dance Moms.

Dance Moms: Abby Lee Miller-Kelly Hyland Fight!
Abby Lee Miller of Dance Moms goes at it with Kelly Hyland in this clip from Season 4 Episode 7.

Kelly Hyland didn't comment further regarding the post, but she's legally been ordered to stop Tweeting about Miller. Maybe retweets don't technically count?

Her trial against Abby Lee, who she accuses of being verbally abusive towards her dancers with her erratic behavior, has stalled since Hyland exited the show.

The lawsuit against Miller says that she was set up to be booted off the show to generate ratings, while "Miller screams at the girls in front of the other dancers."

If you watch Dance Moms, you noticed that when Season 4 returned last week, star dancer Kalani Hilliker, 13, and her mother, Kira Girard, did not.

The explanation for that depends on who you ask.

“Notice that Kalani is not with us,” coach and Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller said. “I certainly don’t want a kid whose mother chooses her boyfriend over her own child.”

Oooh, burn. But Kalani's mom tells a different story:

While Miller, 47, claims that Girard pulled her daughter from the show in an effort to spend more quality time with her boyfriend,

Girard says her decision did not stem from her love life, but from a request to sign a seven-year contract in order to stay on Dance Moms Season 4.

The contract wasn't right for her family, she says:

Tuesday night on Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 20, the Elite Team geared up to end its losing streak with a competition against the Candy Apples.

After subjecting the losers to a personal walk of shame, Abby Lee Miller nabs a former Candy Apple to dance a duet with Maddie. The plot thickens ...

Abby has gotten Cathy's old dancer Gino to partner with Maddie, and perhaps more significantly, Maddie seems to have a clue what's going on now.

In the pyramid meeting, Abby rubs our girls' noses in losing two competitions, because if you watch Dance Moms online, you know that's how she rolls.

Abby tells them to "suck it up" and gives them a lecture on attitude, while this week, IN10sity is in Cleveland, Ohio, which will be the competition site.

That means Cathy and Candy Apples. The duet is "The Girl Has Gotta Be Kissed" and inspired by Abby's stint as guest judge on Dancing with the Stars.

Maddie is given the lead with Gino (formerly of the Candy Apples), and right away, Maddie and Gino have trouble with the kiss that this entails.

When we last left Lifetime's Dance Moms, we had two squads fighting for dance immortality, with shot-caller Abby Lee Miller clearly favoring the new girls.

Who will be the leader's favorites at the end of the night?

You can watch Dance Moms online for the full episode in all its glory, but as we open the second half of season four, it looks like Abby is somewhat softer?

Maybe because of her mom? It can't last, we don't think.

Addressing both teams, Abby says that the new team is there to challenge the old team to make them better. So much for channeling her softer side.

Maddie is not happy on the new team and being on the bottom row. Abby also has some harsh words for Christy, and blames the kids for the moms.

Maddie eventually returns to the old team with a big smile after some squabbling from the moms, and the group is off to compete in Wheeling, W.V.

A major point of tension in this episode is Christy.

Christy this, Christy that. She's the dace mom who the new moms all complain about because she is often late and has told them lies repeatedly.

The new moms go to Abby about Christy, who overhears the whole thing, and the fight erupts shorty thereafter. We're talking about a SERIOUS fight.

The TV crew actually has to pull the women apart.

Kelly Hyland says her arch-nemesis, Dance Moms instructor, Abby Lee Miller terrorized her young daughter to the point where the girl needs serious therapy.

Hyland, who's suing Lifetime's producers, made her daughter Paige so nervous during rehearsals that she began suffering panic attacks, and serious ones at that.

To the point of hyperventilation, she says ... and it gets worse.

Hyland says in her lawsuit producers exacerbated the situation, rather than trying to help the girl, by shoving cameras in Paige's face during her anxiety attacks.

Paige, she says, had to go to a psychiatrist due to the trauma.

Kelly Hyland claims Miller also harassed her, calling her an alcoholic, overbearing stage mom and giving her eight bottles of tequila as a passive-aggressive Christmas gift.

The two famously got into it on Dance Moms last season. Watch Abby Lee Miller and Kelly nearly come to blows in the infamous, HEATED clip below:

The music video for Sia's "Chandelier," directed by the singer and Daniel Askill, features 11-year-old Maddie Ziegler of Dance Moms fame, and is soaring in popularity.

Maddie's scene-stealing performance has helped the video amass more than five million views on YouTube in less than a week. Watch it below and see why ...

If you watch Dance Moms online, you know Maddie's got talent, although her skills are often overshadowed by the force of nature that is Abby Lee Miller.

Maddie Ziegler brings her A game to Sia's video, though the 38-year-old Aussie is no slouch herself. The single may be one of the songs of the summer.

Sia was likely best known for her songs penned for other artists - Beyonce's "Pretty Hurts" and Rihanna's "Diamonds" to name a few - before this effort.

The infectious song and music video make for an unlikely, but impressive, collaboration that we expect to go even more viral as the month progresses.

Which can only be a good thing for Dance Moms fans, as the Lifetime reality show has become notorious not for its young talent, but for ... well, see below:

Last week's Dance Moms reunion show brought us up to date on where Kelly, Cathy and Abby Lee Miller stand at the present time. Now it's the girls' turn.

There's apparently "no moms allowed" on Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 18 ... meaning that they should just rename the show Dance. Just kidding.

Maddie and Chloe got most of the questions, and it's clear that while they compete against one another (and have since age four), Chloe and Maddie are close.

Asked if Abby Lee Miller yells at her, Maddie gets upset when Abby says she can do this or that and she can't; Maddie also basically lives at the studio.

Payton joins Chloe and Nia to talk about being constantly kicked off the team only to return; Payton thinks Abby uses her to tell a story ... a very weird story.

Nevertheless, Payton doesn't really care because she wants to be on the team. That's what set her mom off, though, as you know if you watch Dance Moms online.

Other highlights from part two of the reunion ...

Dance Moms Season 4 Episode 17 marked the hit show's reunion special, and there sure is a lot to rehash after the explosive events of this spring.

Between Kelly Hyland fighting Abby Lee Miller, Abby's mother passing away, the end of The Streak and the introduction of a new team? A lot of drama.

As such, the reunion was basically a continuation of the 16-episode argument that you've already seen if you watch Dance Moms online. Good. Times.

Before any barbs are traded, producer Jeff Collins offers Abby Lee Miller condolences for the loss of her mother. It's touching, sad and poignant.

Then it's down to business as he asks Abby’s opinion on what was easily the most talked about moment of the season, when Kelly Hyland came at her.

Not unlike Kenya Moore, Abby says she didn't “sign up” to be hit in the face and acts like she's above it all despite her clear verbal assault and provocation.

Obviously, we don't advocate Abby Lee getting clocked in the grill, but we're also not surprised or all that sympathetic, because ... it's Abby Lee.

When you antagonize people like it's your job - even before you get all up in their personal space and start waving fingers - tempers will be on the rise.
