"Our blade takes us in the most amazing places."

:agree: I thought of the program as not only showing their skating partnership but also their bond as siblings. I felt they were really into the FD emotionally this time. They showed their love of skating and their love of each other. A couple of the camera angles were strange choices, but I'll deal with that to watch this FD over and over again!!! :yes: Hopefully Worlds is even better!!! I enjoyed the FD at Nationals, but there were little errors and Maia and Alex seemed so tense. 4CC didn't have any of that. Congrats to Maia and Alex!!!Wow. Wow, wow, wow, WOW! I am still in awe. I think this is the strongest performance of both the SD and FD so far this season.
"Fix You" is my favorite ShibSibs program, but "Evolution" is suddenly a very close second! Last year it was all about that song: the building music and uplifting lyrics, Alex and Maia's story, carrying them (and us) along for the journey. This season we don't having soaring music and words, but instead serenity and quiet, the story all resting completely on what Maia and Alex lay down on the ice. And here they told me a powerful story -- a celebration of their partnership -- as THEY swept me along into their beautiful, emotional skate. By the end I was breathless.
Thank you, Maia and Alex.
