I just watched some of the programs..
Akiko and Rachael were the highlights for me. I'm still sad Akiko's not going to Worlds. Mirai was pretty good as well, and of course Miki. This new SP is better than the one she was using at the beginning of the season, but it's still a little lackluster for me.
Cynthia looked uncomfortable as soon as she got on the ice, and through the program too. It sucks that she fell on the lutz (and that Alissa did too), but she and Alissa are still in good positions going into the FS.
It was good to see Mao not singling jumps, but she's still not back where she was last year.
