    I'm glad Emily has finally found a partner.

    I just hope they don't end up being coached by Igor/Marina.

    Two redheads skating together. What's the odds of that?

    Excellent! I really liked Todd in his previous partnerships and was sorry to see him leave the scene for a while. I am looking forward to seeing how this one develops.

    I think they are a good physical match- hope it works out great for them! Right coaches are soooo important though... Waiting for their choice.

    Same here: Summersett/Gilles' "Summertime" program by Christopher Dean made me fall for them. (I can't find it on YouTube.)

    I miss Gilles' skating, and even though he's tall, I think he's better proportioned for Samuelson than Bates, who has lonnnnng legs, and he's more muscular, with really nice knee bend.

    The Ice Network article lists Krylova and Camerlengo as coaches for Summersett and Gilles and Patti Gottwein as the coach of Pratt and Gilles. Gottwein is listed as Summersett and Gilles' coach in this video, and it's definitely Gottwein in Kiss and Cry:

    I think this will be a great partnership, loved the article on them and the upbeat attitudes of both of them. Can't wait to see them on the ice together!

    "It wasn't just me making the decisions; sometimes, the guys found other girls they wanted to skate with"

    I am guessing that the quote is for Paul Poirier. He probably thought that Piper was a better match, or was scared that Emily would not be released as easilly as Piper. Todd is a decent and experienced dancer, but I was hoping for a Samuelson-Poirier dream team.
