Season 6 Episode 8 of "Dance Moms" is one of the most anticipated episodes of the reality TV show. Reason? Abby Lee Miller's star performer, Maddie Ziegler, makes her return to the dance show.

In the latest instalment of Lifetime's reality series, the dance coach meets a familiar face. However, she will not be happy to see Maddie Ziegler return to the ALDC studio. While it isn't clear why Abby isn't warm towards her favourite student, some of the moms will speculate that this tension is a result of Abby's jealousy.
