We see photos of Cody dancing as a child as he tells us that his mother was a choreographer and he grew up dancing. He says that he recently had 2 very rough years. His dance partner Tula was hit by a car. Then his "girlfriend at the time, Michelle, passed away." Then, at a party commemorating the anniversary of Tula's death, his house burned down. He kind of giggles in his interview and says that he's laughing because there's nothing else to do. His mother told him that he should get his feelings out in his dance. That's very sad. Does anyone find the part about his girlfriend passing away a little odd? We got a description of what killed Tula. Not that he needs to give us the dirty details, but it does make my ears perk up a bit. Suicide? That's what I'm guessing. Or Witness Protection Program.
The limo (at least the second one Miguel has been in) arrives at the Union Lofts and drops off the dancers. They enter the loft, and it's a big STEP UP from the place they were staying before. There's a terrace and at least some attention has been paid to the dÃ©cor, which is a helluva lot different than the other lofts. Those were totally East Germany.
Mochi throws herself on a bed in a room with Cody and Nick and says that she's staying with the boys. Nick jokes that she'd better be careful because she might get more than she bargained for. Nick tells us that since he went home from the show, he has been shooting commercials. Plus, he got to assist Tina Landon when she choreographed a Rihanna performance. We see Nick in the studio with Tina and some dancers. She tells the dancers that Nick is her second set of eyes and ears. She asks Nick to get someone to tighten up a move and we see him working with a dancer. Nick tells us that he has been dancing since he was very young. Meanwhile, the most ridiculously adorable snapshots of little Nick in dance gear are shown. There's one of him posing in a sailor suit that is outstanding and probably insured that he got his ass handed to him daily throughout grammar school. Geez. No wonder this guy has issues about dancing like a man when he had to wear shit like this. There's a really nice photo of a grown Nick dancing with a top hat and cane. Nick tells us that he has lost the love that he had for dance when he was very young and did this show to try to regain that love. He thinks he "maybe found it back." OK, Nick has shaved his facial hair and a few pounds off of his body. Dude's looking good and like he's here to PLAY.
