    Wow I have to say I'm pleasantly surprised. I thought V/M score might signal a shift towards them from the judges. It will be interesting to see the protocols when they come out.

    Well skated programs all around.

    Congrats to Meryl & Charlie! Nice PCS too.

    And Tessa & Scott skated very well today!

    But... it's not over yet.

    Close score between D/W and V/M. Very happy for D/W I have a feeling that they will win this event.

    I think so also as their FD is just as good at VM. They are not quite as strong in the CD but since that's not a part of this comp.....

    I tried, I really have, but I guess I will never understand what the judges see in D/W. I get that they are fast and technically strong, but IMO their speed isn't always used to advantage and often makes them look frantic and sloppy. TES, maybe, but I don't see how D/W can be first on every single program component. I just don't get any wow factor from their skating, and still think they are not as musical as other top teams. If I disliked this OD (other than the music) and Samson & Delilah, I'll never like them, will I?

    I really hope V/M will still win this on the strength of their beautiful FD .

    I saw both P/B and K/K's ODs live and now online; K/K worked better for me as a live program and P/B I liked better today. I wonder why that is.

    Don't know what to tell you, Buttercup, I guess if you don't like D/W, you just don't. It's just personal taste, there are skaters that I don't care for and I can't always know a reason why. Like the Germans S/S...I can appreciate what they do but I never get a happy feeling or chills like I do when I watch Shen/Zhao (or when I used to watch G/G).

    That's the reason that I don't really like to be critical of skaters I don't like, I prefer to just cheer and support the ones I do.

    So, go Meryl and Charlie!

    I am Canadian, but I really appreciate the technical aspect of Meryll and Charlie's programs and how well they execute them. This season they were competition ready right of the gate. And it shows.
    However, their FD is not that great. There is a lack of connection and a lot of frentic, fast movement which sometimes is hiding the lack of close holds.

    If D/W win here do that put more pressure on them for nationals and the olympics or do it put more pressure on B/A for nationals and olympics

    I appreciate the technical aspect of Meryl and Charlie's programs and their unusual music choice. Especially Meryl's presentation was so great as always
