In at the moment:
5)Wagner (24) 363.74
6)Hongo (22) (Unlikely to make it)

NHK options:
- Miyahara needs to finish at least second with 182.00 total.
- Gold needs to finish at least second with 184.37 total.
- Murakami needs to finish at least second with 194.36 total.
- Edmunds needs to finish first.
- Daleman unlikely to make it.

I don't give a chance to Murakami to win or finish in second place.Probably Satoko and Gracie will be on top 2, at this point numbers are really important.But I am thinking on a different scenario : if Polina can find a place herself between Satoko and Gracie that means Ashley and winner of NHK can pack their bags to Barcelona.

4)Tarasova\Morozov (24)

NHK options:
- Duhamel\Radford unlikely to finish lower than 4th here.
- Kavaguti\Smirnov unlikely to finish lower than 4th here.
- Yu\Jin need to finish at least 3rd with 175.91 total score.
- Bazarova\Deputat unlikely to finish first here.

Time for Gold to step up. At the very least she shouldn't finish any lower then 2nd but its time to finally win something. She has no reason not to make the GPF this season and if she doesn't it's going to be hard for the judges to keep giving her good scores even when she fecks up. She got 179 points at SA for 2 mistake filled programs so she should be able to get 185 points if she is fairly clean.

In at the moment:
5)Ilinykh\Zhigansin (24)

NHK options:

- Coomes\Buckland need to finish second
- Sinitsina\Katsalopov need to finish at least second with 157.59 total.

*If S\K finish one spot above B\K they would need a difference of 10.41 to win a tie breaker.

--Coomes/Buckland would have to finish at least 2nd. If Weaver/Poje nabs a spot, there's only one spot left. And two bronzes would not be enough to beat Ilinykh/Zhigansin (2nd/4th) because they would lose the placement tiebreaker. Actually, they would oddly be rooting for S/K to be second (but not with that score).

-Jeremy Abbott needs to finish at least 2nd, And have one of the former 3 not show up\have a nightmare

I think Edmunds will be deliberately held down in the SP so that Gold can have the better chance. She has no chance to win. You can forget that scenario.
