Do you think victor and yurio will become close in season 2, was kinda disappointed that there wasnt that much scenes between them and the scenes we did get yurio was so mean lol, I just want to see them become close/friends
I’d personally love to see these two developing more of a mentor/mentee relationship. Even if Victor doesn’t end up as Yurio’s coach, I at least want to see these two acting like big brother/little brother. (Or father and son. I’m not picky.)
Victor has a kindness and slowness-to-anger quality that Yurio sometimes lacks, and Yurio has a seriousness and practicality that Victor sometimes lacks.
Yurio needs Victor’s kindness. Not to say that Victor deserves the kind of abuse you see in the picture above, but Yurio needs someone who’s going to gently correct him and stick around in spite of it. That’s the kind of thing that’s going to make him settle down and become a kinder person himself. (I also have hopes that Yurio’s friendship with Otabek will give him this.)
And Victor needs the wake-up call of a fifteen-year-old coming for his legacy. I don’t think that’s going to make Victor feel insecure. It’s going to excite him and make him want to set the bar higher. Having Yurio (and Yuuri!) challenge his world records will hopefully give Victor the motivation he’s been lacking.
So excited to see these two (and Yuuri! and Mila! and Georgi!) skating on the same rink everyday. Season Two (if and when we get it) is going to be amazing.
