Although, when I think about it, there aren't really that many similarities to last season, even though it feels like there are. Had Scott not fallen in the SD in 2011, they may have had the same score. They bested Meryl and Charlie by, what was it? .5? In the FD once the scoring was fixed. And at 4CCs they had better PCS even though Meryl and Charlie won the SD.
This season, without the bobble on a step sequence, we can probably assume both teams would have 75s right now. But Meryl and Charlie's PCS is the highest, if not by much, which is a great thing to see, since people are so hard on them for their connection. And their score for the SD continues to go up. It never came close to 76 again last season. I mean, they bobbled on a required element and still managed a SB. They weren't severely punished for it. That's a great thing to see.
But, of course, I can't help feeling a little anxious.
I assume this is the last 4CCs for both of the top teams. A little bittersweet!
