    *I mean something little, like the bells and spiral changes in ND, not anything major to step sequences or lifts that would throw them off.
    A new end pose for the FD. Something that (should they win ) will be an iconic image.

    I'm still torn on something else: whether or not their potential win at the GPF will be a good or a bad sign. Lol I know these days they don't really give us anything to worry about so we come up with silly stuff like this, but still. If they win the GPF, we will be wanting them to have another undefeated season, which would be great... but how possible? On the other hand a win in Fukuoka would strenghten their reputation as world #1, as well as their confidence. Would send them to Sochi as leaders. But then again, it makes me think about 2010.

    I know, I know, I'm creating my own problems Still, I think whoever wins the GPF will affect the Olys, one way or another.

    Ugh, I feel the same way. As of right now, I think they're at a better place to win the GPF, especially combined with V/Ms bad GP luck. It seems almost inevitable they'll win, assuming that don't have a bad fall. I think V/M will really need the next couple months to improve their FD.

    But I would hate for them to be punished for winning. I don't think they will, I think the judges are favoring their program this season *and* they haven't committed to Worlds yet, right? So that wouldn't be a perfect season, if they didn't go.

    Either Charlie or Gracie Gold.

    (Just kidding, but the blond hair and big smile made me think of the "Does Gracie have too big a smile thread".)

    Less than a week until GPF!

    Here's to hopefully a 5th consecutive GPF title! They've got the programs, the drive, the scores, and history behind them

    Don't forget the Japanese crowd. They're great to everyone, but they love M/C. It's better than a home crowd tbh.

    That's true. I am excited to see what changes they have done, especially now that Alex Wong has been helping them.

    I wonder what costumes we'll see. Charlie's FD costume is all set IMO.

    Meryl's SLC FD costume is my favorite costume she's ever worn. The cut and design is perfect. I don't know if that design works in a stronger color, but that dress in teal would be spectacular.

    So excited! Gooooo Meryl and Charlie!

    I love the pink dress for their short but I thought the lavender dress was absolutely exquisite and I'm really hoping it makes another appearance soon

    I think the light color was a huge part. It kind of blended into to her skin giving her a delicate ethereal appearance.

    I'm trying to go into this without too many expectations. I just hope they skate well and dazzle the audience. Whatever else happens, happens. I'm going to think about this positively, even if they lose the GPF it will be nice for T/S to win one before they retire.

    I am hoping their SD costumes stay untouched. For SD, I hope they nail that midline finally and get it the level 4 it deserves!

    For FD definitely new costume for Meryl, like I said many times, one that matches Charlie's outfit a bit more. I also liked the SLC dress better, it was more delicate and delicate always looks good on Meryl. As far as the dance goes, maybe the transition before the last step sequence. And a new end pose. Other than that, everything is great.

    I feel like I harp on this, but would it honestly kill NBC to feature Meryl and Charlie in just one Olympic promo? During the Holiday skating show, NBC showed a promo featuring medal winners from Vancouver, except figure skating, they chose to show Gracie Gold.

    I'm annoyed by the lack of attention they give M/C too, but I think Pandora sponsors Gracie. That might be one reason why she got a spotlight in this particular show.
