'Dancing With the Stars' Recap: Meryl Davis & Maks' Secret Is SO Obvious

Meryl Davis Maksim Chmerkovskiy

OMG. Can you believe that by around this time tomorrow night, we'll know who the official winner of Dancing With the Stars season 18 is? Right from the very beginning, it was easy to see that Candace Cameron Bure, Amy Purdy, Meryl Davis, and James Maslow were going to emerge as front runners, and their final performances this evening certainly didn't disappoint.

Sure, the first dances of the night were great, but it's the freestyle routines that really make or break the competition for the finalists.

And I know I'm not alone in saying that Meryl and Maksim Chmerkovskiy did something extraordinary with their freestyle tonight.

Um, who else is totally obsessed with these two?

I haven't been so enamored of a DWTS couple since Val Chmerkovskiy and Kelly Monaco, but even so -- there's something about Meryl and Maks' partnership that goes even deeper.

Romance rumors between the pros and contestants run rampant every season, but honestly, if there's nothing beyond friendship going on between Maks and Meryl? I think it's safe to say every single one of us will be absolutely shocked. Their chemistry is beyond insane, to the point that it's almost heartbreaking to think about the possibility of them going their separate ways and never dancing together again once the competition is over.

OMG. They HAVE to be in love or at least well on their way, right? Hell, even Carrie Ann Inaba admitted she thinks they should get married, so why don't they go ahead and fess up that there's more to their relationship than they're letting on?

Even a couple weeks ago, Maks made a comment along the lines of "keeping whatever he and Meryl have going after the show is over," which has to mean there is more than friendship between them. (Or at least we hope so!) It will be pretty shocking if they don't win the mirror ball trophy tomorrow night, but if I had to guess, I'd say it will come down to them and Amy Purdy and Derek Hough.

Everyone in the ballroom was shocked that James and Peta were voted out ahead of Candace and Mark. As much as I love Candace, she just isn't on the same level playing field as Amy and Meryl. One of them HAS to win the whole deal for sure.

Do you think Meryl and Maks are more than friends? And who do you think will win DWTS?
