    Tessa and Scott just skated, and Tessa stumbled coming out of the first twizzles, they were able to complete the rest of the twizzle sequence in unison.

    I haven't seen Tessa and Scott's skate yet, but from the protocols, it doesn't look good. Aside from the obvious error on the twizzles, they only got a level 4 on 1 of the 5 elements.

    Yes. Low levels on everything but one Rhumba sequence. Tessa touched down (with her hand) during the twizzles. Just mistimed in general, I felt. Outside the first Rhumba sequence (which was a level three), this was definitely not what they're capable of.

    I missed G/P, but they're in third. Get ready for the Skate Canada push next season, everyone.

    Love Scott shouting "TIME" after the error to get Tessa back on track. (Could the mods merge the two threads or delete mine or something).

    Your wish is my command.

    It looks like either everyone was nervous, or this was a seriously tough tech panel. Darn few level 4's.

    Skate Canada has been updating the protocols real time, after every team.

    I am hoping videos will soon become available for interested fans outside of Canada.

    Bit of both, probably. But a touch technical panel is a good thing, especially at Nationals.

    Honestly, I don't want to write V/M's SD off, but.....

    A bit of a so so night overall. It seemed no one, with the exception of Paul/Islam, was at their best tonight.

    I'm not sure how I feel about Tessa & Scott's new choreography. The whole program was off, so it was hard to judge. Oh well. I guess even these two are human.

    Weaver & Poje seemed a little more subdued, but they really did skate quite well. I thought their marks were well deserved.

    Gilles & Poirier were really on fire. They were the only team who skated like they had nothing to loose...which they didn't. A nice debut for them.

    I though Ralph & Hill looked nervous tonight, and a little shakey. They skated well, but again, not their best.

    As for Paul & Islam, I was thrilled with the choreographic changes that they made to the program. I thought this version was much better. They looked really solid, and had nice expression throughout. Not at the level that they were last season, but given the multiple injuries Paul has had this season, I thought they looked better than could be expected. I still have my fingers crossed that these two could make the world team, but I realize that its a tall order. Still, a nice comeback for them.

    Not that tall an order - G/P aren't going and they're only a point and change behind R/H.

    I want Ralph/Hill to hold on for that 3rd World spot though; I really hope they do! I LOVE their FD this season!

    It's a shame that Gilles/Poirier's season ends at this event.

    Ralph & Hill have a seriously good FD this year; much better than their SD, at least from what I saw from the Skate America coverage.

    Holy crap, W/P so close to V/M. I haven't seen this yet. I know V/M had the mistake.

    I guess I just don't want to jinx it. I love P/I's FD. I think its absolutely gorgeous. The fact that they've only competed it once and have had additional injury since then makes me a little nervous, though. Still, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for them.
