That was incredibly nail biting, exhilarating, beautiful, and wow do they know how to keep emotions running high throughout. It might be a bit predictable with Yuri not performing perfectly in the short routine and JJ taking a bit of a stumble. If Yuri had been brilliant again in his short skate there wouldn’t be much tension next week. If JJ had been flawless it would have been impossible to believe anyone could beat him. The other skaters all did much what we expected, save the one we hadn’t seen which was refreshing. It was also excellent to see Yurio finally skate to his potential. However, what was with that bombshell at the end and where is that going to go next week? I cannot believe we have to wait a week to find out what is going to happen next because I really want to know now.
Yuri on Ice is available on Crunchyroll.
