Do you really think so? I think this will only happen if Tessa and Scott decide to also skip Four Continents and go directly to Worlds. Given the location of Four Continents and the USFSA's track record I am going to be surprised if Meryl and Charlie decide to go there.

If both teams show up at Worlds looking well trained they will be judged on what they put forward then, not on past performances.
This is exactly how I feel as well. I've never been a fan of C&P's FD's but their team has outdone themselves this year.

I'm still hoping that they can finally do that at Canadians even if they do place second.
I'm hoping for clean strong skate from Tessa and Scott as well no matter where they place the rest of the season. I will admit to hoping for a "miracle" ending to this season for them. That or P&B pulling an upset. I won't count on it though (especially not P&B).
Kaitlyn and Andrew have the wow factor IMO, partly because they are such a beautiful looking pair. But they don't have the same level of skills that C&P will, and probably never will.
