I imagine Eteri will have learned her lesson from 2018, and at least the Olympic gold medalist, if not others, will sit out the following Worlds. I hope that's the case, bec whoever's 4th at Nationals could possibly still get a medal.For Worlds, though, yes, Usacheva has great prospects. Even if she doesn't make Beijing, it's likely she could be first sub that year for both that and the Worlds team - the second being especially beneficial since one of the Olympic team might choose not to skate at Worlds. And she can do great next season.
