Carol Lane's teams did a simulation for PJ Kwong, who has pics on her Instagram and video in her stories, including an interview with Molly and Dmitri.

Carolane borrowed a dress from Piper for this. I like it, but I don't know if she's going to keep it for the season or just used it this once.
Carolane said, in an interview shown on PJ's Blade This! after Battle of the Blades last evening, that her own dress wasn't ready yet.

I'm glad she's getting something new for the RD. I was never sold on that dress with the spots.

Last year I recall they similarly did their RD at one of the summer series events but didn't do the FD.

We should be getting the scores tomorrow, so I'll be interested to see who won the RD between the top two teams (I thought B/B looked sharper overall, but with IJS ice dance I really don't have the technical knowledge to assess the finer details without the TES box).

And I was correct; Nadiia and Peter won the RD by almost two points, a very good result for them. Since Natalie and Bruce didn't stick around for the FD, obviously we won't get a final result.

From today's IAM Live feed, Zach did a solo run-through of their new free dance (they don't say why Marjorie wasn't there), which looks like the most unusual program they've ever done. They really run with the bird theme.

Emmy was also back, so whatever injury she was recovering from seems to have abated. She and Aissa continue to seem closer and closer in height, unfortunately.

Alicia and Paul also looked good.

Emmy Bronsard & Aissa Bouaraguia (ETA: I've finally learned how to spell his last name without looking it up! ;)) were working on a short section of their new Junior FD (music is from Prokofiev's Romeo & Juliet); they were followed by a partial FD run through by Alicia Fabbri/Paul Ayer to the Frida OST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MgYr0tmoHE&t=38m55s
