- Episode Description
Several months after the disastrous Nutcracker performance, the studio is closed and everyone has scattered to the winds. That is, no one is dancing except Michelle in a dreary magician's show on the outskirts of Las Vegas while she camps out on Talia's couch. The girls, meanwhile, deal with the chaos of their lives, and Sasha's return from Joffrey only creates more when she refuses to go back home.

Fanny: My son loved you. He wanted you to have a certain kind of life. And if I just let you stay here, and don't try to make that happen, then I am not honoring his memory. Hubbell saw something in you, but you're gonna have to see it in yourself, eventually. Otherwise… (sighs) People told me daughters were harder. I just thought it was because they could get pregnant.
