Okay, so. The first 57 minutes of the episode were actually pretty good. Michelle is being forced (by Fanny, who went on a surprise vacation and abandoned the studio) to teach dance classes. Progress! Truly basically makes Michelle and Talia bring her along for Michelle's birthday festivities. Michelle and Truly have the beginnings of a friendship. Progress! We finally see Ginny's boyfriend. Progress! Boo talks to Charlie, Melanie's brother, who she has a crush on and doesn't completely embarrass herself. Progress! Sasha's parents get into a huge fight and her dad possibly goes crazy. Or they're getting a divorce. Either way: Progress! There was a cupcake ATM. That's not progress, but it's awesome.
And then. And then, you guys. The last three minutes were Sasha and two random girls dancing. To "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" by They Might Be Giants. Which is a great song, but that dance? I don't think words can accurately describe how weird it was. And, like, Sasha was singing along to parts? She's a great dancer, don't get me wrong. But there was no talking and she was dressed head to toe in a black onesie and it was just ... bizarre. And it's how the episode ended. I think it broke me?
If someone could confirm that dance actually happened, that would be great. I cannot find independent confirmation that it happened, and there are no images/gifs on tumblr of it, so I'm not 100% sure. If it's not on tumblr, it didn't happen.
Anyway, Episode Grade: I don't even know, I can't think right now. B?
