THOUGHTS ON YURI!!! ON ICE EPISODE 8
*** long post ahead
I couldn’t say I had a feeling this might happen, but if I were to put it into words, I’d say all these past 7 episodes, YOI has been…… Too peaceful, I suppose.
Not that I’m complaining, but all stories got to have a huge problem at some point - from which it would then lead us to the climax and the long-awaited resolution.
Yes, we have Yurio suddenly coming to Hasetsu and might “take Viktor away” if Yuuri just lost that Onsen on Ice.
Yes, we have that that carpark scene and Yuuri breaking down crying in Episode 7.
But none of those events are actual “crisis”. Well, in Episode 7 it almost became a crisis, yet thankfully it was solved right away.
I’m sure I’m not the only one here who have been thinking “Just what kind of trouble will show up in this show?”
Before this episode came out, my best bets were:
- Viktor and Yuuri might have an argument and/or fighting at some point
- Yuuri somehow messing up in Rostelecom Cup short program
I mean, they were cliches I came up with based on experience, based on stories I’ve read/watched so far. And honestly, it’s not impossible for those to happen.
I have never been so wrong in my life.
