Cat catches up with Robert, who says he was shocked every time he wasn't in the bottom three. His favorite routine was that Travis Wall dance with Allison. He complains (in a nice way) about all those ballroom routines he got. If he wins, he'll buy his mother whatever she wants. Solo time: Crouch, wiggle, bend, jump, point, hug, kick, kick, spin, points, somersault, spin, spin, prance, robot, dancey move of some description.
Kent and Allison will now be dancing for Stacey Tookey. It's something about looking behind the scenes of a "perfect relationship." Stacey's a little worried about Kent's maturity, and we get shots of him goofing around in rehearsal. But once again, he transforms once he's on stage. As far as I can tell, the dance skips the "perfect relationship" part and goes straight to a couple fighting and arguing. It conveys it effectively, I guess. Nigel praises Kent's lines and emotions. He suggests that Kent needs more upper-body strength, though. Mia spotted Kent saying "get off of me" to Allison at the end of the dance, and Kent looks a little weird about it. But Mia loved that Kent was completely invested in the character he was playing. Then she tells him she loves him. Adam wants to know why Kent seems like he's on the verge of tears right now, and he explains that you get so invested with the story that the steps don't even matter. Then Adam starts to freak out, shouting "Kent, you just became an artist!" That's great, but I wanted to hear the rest of Kent's explanation. It was way more interesting than Adam ranting about how Kent doesn't need the show. I already know that, Adam. Adam gets back to his notes to praise Kent's stillness, then Cat takes us back to Kent. He's still a bit overcome and says he just wants to dance. Then he hugs Allison and they appear to have a moment together before she nods to him and goes offstage. That was a surprisingly real moment for this show.
