Image Credit: Kelsey McNeal/ABCWelcome back, DANCMSTRs, and happy October from these sparkly pumpkins my sister found in a craft store! It’s week 3, and Tom Bergeron says it’s “time to turn the page” because it’s STORY NIGHT. Mark Ballas is wearing a winter hat (update: it’s because he’s playing a homeless person), and The Situation promises he’ll be “going through a time machine,” which is weird because he already seems to live in the ’80s!

Anyway, I need to go focus on the show. Come back in the morning (a little sooner, if you’re an insomniac or simply insane) for my full recap. (UPDATE: Recap is liiiiiiiiiive!) Discuss the week 3 performances of Dancing With the Stars here and nominate your Hidden Gems of the Week in the comments. And don’t miss Derek’s weekly EW.com check-in!
