honestly, i’m blown away at how on point that drunk!yuuri plot twist was… usually when shows try to throw that curve (eg. gossip girl or pretty little liars) it throws everything off the curve and usually doesn’t make sense and leaves for so many plotholes that will never be explained. and u can tell that the writers just put that in last minute without thinking of the story in general
yet for yuri on ice, you can tell that this plot twist–ie. the fact that viktor did know yuuri and possibly fell in love with him way earlier than anyone expected–was planned from the beginning. because everything in the previous 9 episodes can now be seen in a new light. not only that, it makes sense too. the fact that you can watch the show in two different perspectives (that is, the perspective w/o having watched episode 10 and also the one w/ the ep 10 knowledge) and have both still make sense w/o any plot holes and stuff is so impressive!!
it rly shows that the writers really crafted this story rly well, and kudos to them. idk if i can recall any other show that pulled the “plot twist that changes perspective” so well
it’s also a fantastic in the business perspective because it gives people incentive to go back and rewatch all the episodes in crunchyroll, giving more support to the creators so thats rly awesome too~~~~
