yes, the music is speeding up and she is skating painfully slowly. That footwork is easily the worst part of the program and it comes right at the end.

None of the ladies this year have actually mastered the footwork sequenece to me except Akikko. She flies across the ice with spot on musicality, reminicent of Sasha's fantastic Rachmaninoff and Dark Eyes sequences. Rachel's step sequecnes are also pretty good, but in my book Akiko was head and shoulders above anyone I have seen this season.
