Their scores were very close. Caroline did beat Agnes in the FP, but Agnes had a 6-point lead from the SP. It could have gone the other way but it was close.
No one is mentioning that Caroline still had a mule kick in her first jump (Lutz or flip, I forget). Wonder if it cost her a beauty point.
For me, Agnes has a mature and steady polish and style that Caroline only clutches at. While I'm happy for Caroline's improvement, which is huge, she has a lot to improve still. Personally I feel her comeback story is getting overhyped, especially by Scott Hamilton, who also exaggerates Alissa's virtues. (He irritates the heck out of me in case anyone didn't notice.) All Agnes needs is to land the jumps that she already has, and to get better packaging. Bingo - instant champion.
This is JMO, of course. The audience was definitely on Caroline's side tonight! It was a great night for her. I hope it inspires her to keep working and improving. I have to say that after tonight I do believe she has the potential to make podiums again. Unlike Polymer Bob, I'm not a visionary and couldn't see the potential behind her troubles.
