Abby Lee Miller's return to the Abby Lee Dance Company was met with major fireworks.

In an exclusive sneak peek at Tuesday's "Dance Moms," the volatile dance instructor shows up to the studio unexpectedly after being away for a few weeks dealing with the bankruptcy fraud case for which she's currently serving 366 days in federal prison.

Let's just say it wasn't a welcome return.

With Laurieann Gibson already in place to instruct the girls in Abby's absence, a confrontation sparks after one of the moms spots Miller's lawyer in the parking lot.

"Talk about shady sh-t," mom Jill says.

"Under duress, I'm back," Miller says to the group of mothers as she enters the facility.

"What do you mean you're under duress?" Jill asks. "If you don't want to be here, we don't want you to be here!"

"You don't get that choice," Miller shoots back. "How dare all of you. I can come and go as I please. Some of you have forgotten that I have my court cases and all that stuff. Come on, Lets face it, I ned to take care of me. I need to worry about me. I'm not bending the rules for anybody, that's over."

Watch what unfolds next when "Dance Moms" airs Tuesday at 9pm PT on Lifetime.
