Nastia is also a big fan of Stolbova!
I think Morozov did the Bond program so it's nice to see what new programs he comes up with for the new season.

well.. I think Lady Moskvina had the olympic programm's ready for B/K since they were juniors. I don't have any doubt about that

I read this a bit quickly and jumped to the conclusion of Lady Caliph!

I hope Nastia shows some Stolbova divaness. I think that all three top Russian pairs team need more character. They do not have that special quality that Sui and Han have. But some of them have a 3S eu 3S - pretty impressive. I am starting to appreciate the technical difficulty and skill of Duhamel and Radford now We don't see any quad throws really or triple lutzes individually but I will give credit to the two russians with the 3S eu 3S that is intense.

Frankly speaking, it took several years for Sui/Han after moving to senior level to gain that special quality everyone admires them for. The Russians still have time ahead of them.
Yes, I recall first two or three years of Sui-Han in seniors. Their basic skating skills were so bad, one could hear scratching in between the elements. Then there was a season when Sui was injured and they missed nearly whole season, came just for the worlds, and skated like a completely changed pair. Not sure if because of the injury they couldn’t concentrate on the elements and so they just worked on basic stroking, but it was like if someone turned Jenna McCorkell into Mao Asada. It was a huge difference. And there was also the program they skated to for three seasons! No one would think at that time that they will turn into anything special in the future.

the thing here is that there is no time - there are younger pairs that will give them too much competitoin

Yes, there is. The younger teams have to survive up to senior level or to establish themselves there. And as far as too much competition is concerned, three teams already were the ones who pushed older buddies and conquered their place on top and of course they are aware that someone wants to do the same thing regarding to them.
