“One Day More” - Scenes from the Broadway Production of Les Misérables
I’m now a firm believer that Otabek had a crush on JJ when (if) they were rinkmates in Canada. Could explain why he hates JJ so much. What if he got friendzoned for Isabella, or just flat out rejected. And JJ being the sweet and lovable dumbass that he is, is trying to repair their relationship and just be friends. I think that would make for an interesting plot twist, and doesn't have to steal from Otayuri development.
