No chance at all!
They do not have a choice but to be with Igor. They cannot move out of US because of Christina situation and there is no other place that would be better for them in US. Did not they work with outside choreographers this year?When they first came out they had this lovely SD that had me hooked. While I appreciate the difficulty of their programs this year they really don't suit them especially the FD. They should have called in the maestro Najarro for that flamenco and as for the RD sometimes they try too hard and at other times it's just flat. Who can rescue these two from the abyss that is Igor? He did not do any favours for I/Z (in the day), Diana and Gleb should have stayed in Russia and here we have what we have. Should they look elsewhere or should they try outside choreography? I am really asking.
They worked with Christopher Dean and Massimo Scali but I guess Igor is still the main choreographer, according to this article:They do not have a choice but to be with Igor.

And while Shpilband took the choreographic lead on both programs, the team has consulted as well with Massimo Scali and, during a week in Colorado Springs, Christopher Dean — “a figure skating genius,” in Ponomarenko’s words.
I was just about to come post that article. Quadruple runthroughs is killer! More than anything I want C/P to have clean skates here because I honestly believe that if that happens, they're on the podium. They have the momentum this season, they just need to seize the opportunity. Best of luck to them this week!!New interviews from 2020 Us nationals.

I loved seeing his mom, the goddess Marina Klimova, doing the programs with them from the stands. You could see her doing every step just by the way she moved she moved her head. PricelessI swear I almost forgot how to breathe while they were doing their twizzles. But they did those, and everything else, so beautifully. Almost everything else. @#($&#($^ step sequence!
Regardless of scores and results (and step sequences), they should be very, very proud of what they did. Onward and upward!
