Argument for Season 2
Because I spent a couple of hours tossing and turning in bed, thinking about this.
The one thing about Yuri!!! On Ice that has been low-key bothering me is the fact we’re only following Yuuri through to the Grand Prix Final. We all know there are other competitions after this – Nationals, Four Continents, World Championships. Yes, the Grand Prix is arguably the Biggest and Most Important and determines the trajectory of the rest of Yuuri’s season, but – this is not the end of the season for him, either. He’s still got other competitions to go through!
Which leads me to this:
“This is an engagement ring. We’ll get married when he wins gold.”
The implication here is that Yuuri’s going to have to win gold at the Grand Prix Final for the wedding to happen – though let’s be real here, Victor wants to marry this boy no matter how well he does.
If it IS on the stipulation of when he wins gold, my prediction is that Yuuri doesn’t get gold during the Grand Prix Final. I think the actual winner will be Phichit – and that Yuuri will get second place, Yuri third. There’s also that line from way back in episode two, “Oh, and we can defer my coaching fee for now. I’ll bill you once you’ve won something.”
Once you’ve won something.
We’ll get married when he wins gold.
Sounds similar, doesn’t it?
If Yuuri doesn’t win at the Grand Prix Final in episode 12, then he still has a chance to win other competitions – as the figure skating season won’t be over ‘til the World Championships in late March/early April. I’m pretty sure he and Victor are still gonna get married at some point no matter what (because let’s face it, their perfect for one another), but – if it’s really “when he wins gold,” there are still plenty of chances for Yuuri to do just that.
I don’t know if we’ll get a season two, but if we did, he’d win gold during Worlds.
And then we’d get the motherfucking wedding. :D
