I wish Stepanova and Bukin had kept Romeo and Juliet out of this program lol. The beginning is by far the best part. I also don't get why they keep going soft in Olympic seasons when they're far better at sharp, angular movements and slightly darker programs are where their strength lies.
while I do agree - I also feel like when they did they didn't get as rewarded at the big events and probably felt like it wasn't paying off

Am I the only one who liked Vika's royal blue dress better. She just fades into the ice.

Impressive power and edges from S/K. Their transitions are still somewhat sloppy and the program is uninspired (Hawayek and Baker did classical right this year). The last part of the program completely cheapens it and looks like 1990s Lord of the dance. Sorry, but this better not win gold in Beijing. Don't be too greedy Russia.

That seemed a bit restrained, but wisely so to preserve Nikita's back. I feel like some of the lifts and choreo were adapted, but I may be wrong. Definitely the winning skate.
