I will expect an improvement in the performance this season but that triple lutz/triple loop sounds perfect for her needs

Mao is the big jumper here. Her 3A will also register in the PCS scores subjectively. I'm expecting this season that she will get away from the 'little girl' look.
Yu Na's lyrical grace may be hard for Kimmie to overtake.

Carmina Burana has been done mostly by male skaters and ice dancers. I think maybe Emily chose it because she feels it fits her powerful style. The problem is that is she can't skate a clean program, her performance is way overpowered by the music. At least it isn't ballet music again.
Her new coaching arrangement is probably the reason for the switch.
It's unfortunate that she is skating to the same SP music as Mirai Nagasu. They will certainly skate the programs with completely different styles.
