Everyone's replaceable in the Abby Lee Dance Company, but even Abby Lee Miller can't deny how good Brady Farrar is on Dance Moms. That's why she brought him back to the ALDC on the July 23rd episode. And, based on the preview for next week, it seems like Brady's back to stay on Dance Moms.
Abby previously sent Brady home because she thought the rest of the team was using him as a crutch. Once the team won without Brady, Abby decided to bring him back for the group dance at the Pittsburgh competition. She said she wanted to "put [her] best foot forward" at the showdown. For Abby, that meant having her star dancer back.
She teased Brady's return while explaining to the girls that they'd be doing a Bermuda Triangle-themed group dance about how people are rumored to disappear in that area. "This dancer disappeared and now they're back," Abby said, welcoming Brady into the studio. She picked a challenging number for Brady's return — the team was dancing with real water under their feet, which could have spelled disaster if they slipped. Brady was keenly aware of that potential, saying on the episode that he felt a lot of pressure to get the dance right and stay safe. Abby piled more of that pressure on when she told him, minutes before the dance, "Brady, you're back this week. You cannot screw up this group dance. It cannot be you."
While the team did place fourth, it doesn't seem like Abby considered Brady the reason for the loss. The preview for the July 30th episode shows that Brady gets a solo, and Abby doesn't just hand those out to dancers who aren't on her team. Dance Moms fans were thrilled that Brady returned to the series after his forced hiatus, and even happier that he's sticking around. He was definitely a fan favorite and a standout star before he was unceremoniously kicked off the team for... being too good.
"I'm honestly just so excited for Brady to be back. That's it that's the reason I'm watching this week," one fan wrote on Twitter.

"I'm so happy to see that Brady is back," wrote another.
And after he appeared in the group dance, another fan praised his skills, writing: "Brady is so good!!"
At the beginning of the episode, Brady's mom was concerned that they may not be back for good, though. But the preview of his solo for next week seems to clear that up. However, his mom isn't done talking about how the break affected her son. In the preview, she told the other moms that Brady didn't want to tell anyone that he'd been kicked off the team, he didn't want to leave the house, and he didn't even want to dance.
Brady shined in the group dance and, even though it didn't win, Abby was pleased enough with his performance to bring him back for another week and a solo. His return is actually much-needed for the team, which has been a little short-handed since Savannah up and left with no explanation. Based on the fan reactions to his return, viewers are more than glad that Abby chose to fill Savannah's spot with Brady. Now they just have to tune in next week to see if his solo skills are just as good as they were before he left.
