Comparing YOI Relationships
Does anyone else notice the more hetero storylines in Yuri on Ice are there to directly contrast against Victor & Yuuri’s relationship?
Georgi’s obssession with Anya consumed him, when she finally decides to leave mid-way through the performance, he pathetically crumbles. When Yuuri gets into a disagreement with Victor in episode 7, he uses his skating to work through his emotions, he doesn’t let it overtake him – and ultimately comes out on top because of it.
In this episode, we see Crispino being extremely dependent on Sara and wanting to keep her to himself, to which she knows is unhealthy and stifling. And in contrast to that, Yuuri decides to perform the free skate by himself and let Victor see Makkachin. The fact that Sara saw Yuuri & Victor deciding want to do wasn’t a coincidence, maybe it’ll even give her a push in the right direction.
Victor & Yuuri’s relationship isn’t just romantic, it’s being seriously presented as the strongest relationship of the entire show.
