Sara's first appearance is in an elevator along with Michele and Emil, who had asked her out to dinner and enraged Michele. She avoids their argument, greeting Yuuri in the lobby and attempting to talk to Seung-gil, who coldly brushes her off, which causes her to tell him off on how to treat a lady better.
Later, she watches Michele's short program from the rink side, hugging him tightly after. She is impressed with his performance but wary about his dependence on her, thinking about how their relationship is unhealthily co-dependent.
Sara reprimands her brother Michele, telling him that he needs to be able to perform without her and that she was able to skate without his love. She does not support him from her usual place from the rink side but sits in the audience with Mila and Georgi.
While watching Michele's performance, Sara finds herself in tears at her brother's performance, which has changed to become more mellow than in practices. She runs off to the kiss and cry after the performance and embraces Michele, apologizing for her harsh words. However, she also admits that she was glad she said them, as the siblings are better apart.
Sara, having successfully made it to the Grand Prix Final Women's Program, is able to watch the Grand Prix Final Men's Program from the audience along with her brother and Emil. She observes each performance carefully and later invites Yuuri and Victor to sit with her.
Sara watches the GPF free skate from the audience with Michele, Emil, and Mila.
