"Playing Favorites" is the thirty-second episode of the fourth season of Dance Moms. It first aired on October 14, 2014.


The moms from both the Elite and Select Teams face off against Abby to hash out their grudges from this season and accuse her of blatant favoritism. Maddie takes the stage to talk about her recent success in Hollywood with the Sia video, the girls present new dances, and of course, Cathy makes an appearance to ruffle Abby's feathers.
