I just realized that. Since they actually performed the Stammi Vicino pair skating version. And Victor is performing Stammi Vicino for Yuuri in the first scene of the anime.
And considering that we don’t know how the pair skating version ends. And therefore we don’t know how this part of the program would have been in the pair skating version. And we know Victor’s in charge of Yuuri’s choreographies.
What if. What if this scene is Victor figuring out how to adapt the program to a pair skating version. Meanwhile showing it to Yuuri. What if this first scene is the beginning of them practicing the program for the GPF exhibition.
Y’all know that moment when an OTP totally catches you by surprise?
Like it’s just two characters you’d never think would ever get it on and they just have this scene and something clicks, character a looks at character b differently and you’re just like “wait- hold on… wait wa-WAIT! WAIT!!“ and it just dawns on you that you’re shipping it and you can just feel yourself slowly turn into trash. All you know now is your life is going to be ruined by these two but you’ll love it anyway…
