Somewhere in the pre-history of the show, LXD members Katana and Ninjato sacrificed their love, but they are still deeply connected, as shown by their synchronized routines waking up and dancing, feeling each other’s presence even though they are separated. For me, this episode has the strongest partner work seen so far in the series, with fantastic cinematography combining with choreography to brilliantly convey the connection between the former lovers.
