I stayed up until almost 6 am to watch this. My impression was that the ladies competition was a hot mess. Not one lady impressed me technically. Wagner won the free skate by default. She wasn't that great - two double-footed jumps & a flutz. Gold disappointed me as well, missing her 3Lz-3T combo for the first time this season (I wasn't that surprised about the popped axel - she seems to mess that up a lot.) Her PCS was actually higher than her TES, which seems ironic given all the talk about her abilities as a skater. This competition didn't do much to change my impression that the ladies field is really weak right now.
