Following rumors that she would be returning to the sport, it was announced on June 28, 2018 that Gold was assigned to compete at the 2018 Rostelecom Cup. She is coached by Vincent Restencourt in Pennsylvania. Former figure skater Jeremy Abbott choreographed her short and long programs. It is said that Gold's new short program portrays a more playful and sexy character and her free program portrays her journey from her personal struggles to her comeback. At the 2018 Rostelecom Cup, in the short program, she doubled her triple lutz-triple toe loop combination, under-rotated and fell on her triple flip, and popped her planned double Axel. She scored 37. 51, the lowest short program score she has ever received since the start of her junior career, placing her in 10th and last place. Gracie announced via twitter her withdrawal from the free skate in order to not damage her mental health and confidence because of her short program. She later stated that she is now working towards 2019 US Nationals; however, on January 9, 2019, she announced her withdrawal from Nationals in order to further prepare for the 2019-2020 season. She also stated that she is working towards the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing.
