I don´t get the anti-Canadian conspiracy talk. :shrug:L/L had major level issues. G/P had mistakes on their pattern and lacked sharpness (plus their RD didn´t impress any panel so far this season). Always crying conspiracy doesn´t help anybody to develop.
i think it's fair for people to express their reactions to the event. There is a line between that and calling for a conspiracy. I don't think there was cheating, but that doesn't mean I don't see eye to eye with the judges.

Does anyone think that Fear and Gibson should be ranked 4th?
I mean apart from the British judge.

So there's that. I will bow out now :)

RD from the UKR couple was powerful. Sad they withdrew but understandable. I don’t even know what to add.
P/C are to me the best ice dancers I watched since I became a fan of this sport. If this is their last competitive RD, they did it with a bang.
I honestly did not enjoy much H/D’s RD and found them too close to P/C. I loved C/B’s RD though. Absolutely loved it.

I expected G/P to be closer to G/F. I didn't see a major mistake.
Look up the protocols.
Blues pattern: G/F hit all 4 keypoints for a total of 9.58 points; GP hit only 3 and got 8.9 points.
Twizzles: Both teams got 4/4, but G/ F got higher GOE from the judges (9.53 to G/P's 9.02).
Partial step sequence: G/F got 3/3 on theirs for a total 10.6 points. G/P got 2/2 and 9.5 points and an "S" notation noting separation of hold/contact
Lift: both got L4; G/P edged G/F 7.2 to 7.06
Step Sequence: L2 for G/P (9.99 pts) L1 for G/F (10.18 points; higher GOE)
PCS: 38.11 G/F; 36.98 G/P

And then there are the ridiculous pumpkin costumes, festooned for this competition with epaulettes. And what was with Paul's visible chest hair? I thought that was a no-no.

Oh god, the lyrics of the song hitting like a gut punch. I can't even begin to imagine how they did that, what was in their minds as they skated, where they pulled that strength from.

Lyrics to the music the Ukrainians skated to:

1944 Lyrics by Jamala

[Verse 1]
When strangers are coming
They come to your house
They kill you all
And say
We’re not guilty
Not guilty

[Pre-Chorus]
Where is your mind?
Humanity cries
You think you are gods
But everyone dies
Don't swallow my soul
Our souls

[Chorus]
Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım
Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım

[Verse 2]
We could build a future
Where people are free
To live and love
The happiest time
Hard time
[Pre-Chorus]
Where is your heart?
Humanity rise
You think you are gods
But everyone dies
Don't swallow my soul
Our souls

[Chorus]
Yaşlığıma toyalmadım, ooh
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım, aah
Yaşlığıma toyalmadım, ooh
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım, ooh
Aman, aman

[Bridge]
Aah....
Aah....

[Chorus]
(Yaşlığıma toyalmadım)
Aah...
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım
Aah...
(Yaşlığıma toyalmadım, ooh)
Aah...
Vatanıma toyalmadım

"Slava Ukraina"

In the meadow, there a red kalyna (Viburnum), has bent down low,
For some reason, our glorious Ukraine, has been worried so.
And we'll take that red kalyna and we will raise it up,
And we, our glorious Ukraine, shall, hey - hey, rise up - and rejoice!

Nazarova & Nikitin's rhythm dance was the only one which was aired by CBC television (although it omitted the replay and kiss & cry). Carol Lane, one of the commentators, becomes emotional at around the 3-minute mark. (I had to upload the video on Streamable because it was rejected by Dailymotion due to the music.)
