    M.M. is a wonderful program. In fact I really wish Michelle had kept both Miraculous Mandarin & Rush that season.

    While I might go back and watch a given skater's past performances, they are few and far between. I watch many of Michelle's key performances as noted above at least once a year and still marvel.

    She didn't give them up by choice.

    Apparently, TPTB didn't care for them.
    Like some others here, I wonder whether Peter Carruthers' negative comments had some weight.

    Would the arc of her career have been different had she continued using "edgier" music/choreography?
    It's interesting to contemplate; yet, impossible to know.
