Soooooo. Thoughts on the Viktor and Yurio beach scene from ep 10? ^.^ I'm not seeing a lot of commentary around...
Get ready for my overanalysis! (also I’m sorry I can’t concentrate so this is probably really all over the place)
I’m not too sure what’s going through Yurio’s head, but I feel like when he was insulting Yuuri, it was more to insult Viktor than Yuuri. In fact, I think most of Yurio’s anger towards Yuuri is just a projection of his anger towards Viktor. (Although I’m still not sure as to why he yelled at Yuuri in a bathroom in episode one cause Yurio not wanting to compete with another Yuri isn’t that good of a motive to go harass a stranger + they had a dance battle so I don’t think Yurio hates Yuuri)
Anyway, all of Yurio’s anger after Viktor left was because of Viktor leaving for Yuuri. Viktor promised to choreograph a routine for him (which technically he did, but he forgot and left first sooo)
So my thoughts about the beach scene…
- Yurio is 15
- Yurio, being a kid, probably felt pretty bad when Viktor forgot him and left
- Yurio, being a kid, is having a hard time letting that go
- Yurio, being a kid and seeing Viktor get engaged to Yuuri, the man Viktor abandoned his promise to him for, probably made him feel angry again.
Viktor broke his promise to Yurio to go train another Yuri. The Yuuri that Yurio told to retire because there was no room for two Yuri’s in their bracket. We haven’t really unlocked Yurio’s tragic backstory yet, but from what I’ve seen, Yurio probably has some abandonment issues. Yurio probably also has an issue with NOT winning as if he needs to prove something to someone. So Yurio is insulting Yuuri and Viktor's relationship because he knows Viktor isn’t going to leave Yuuri, Viktor broke his promise and him and Yuuri are a very real threat to him getting gold in the GPF.
tl;dr: Yuuri is 15 and all 15yr olds are angry
