Marina/Esther – sneak preview 1×12 (with video)
[Let there be love.]
[this sneak preview is a translation of BAM's "on the fly" transcript. It contains the crucial, but not necessarily all Marina/Esther relevant moments of this episode; there will most likely be additions and/or corrections later. - If you want to quote these translations elsewhere, you are welcome to do so, as long as you link back to this original post and credit the creators (i.e. BAM and Nordica)]
A Spanish version of these transcripts can usually be found at Sam’s blog, a Chinese version at the Chinese Marina/Esther forum (forward to last page), within 24 hours of the English post. Video by AuntieCallisto embedded below.)
Additional Note: RaiDue, only 4 episodes into the renewed airing of TdU, has changed the airing schedule and pushed the show from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. (seonda serata). That sucks for a variety of reasons, most of all because it puts the transcribing and translating two hours further into the night, so you will roughly have to wait two hours longer for the sneak preview from now on. Sorry about that. I just hope that neither BAM nor I will pass out over our keyboards during the remaining 6 weeks of new Marina/Esther goodness.
A note by BAM: the entire episode is based around a hazard case in the ER, which leads to them being isolated for five days. Marina and Esther have several scenes with patients in the hospital setting. The (brief) scenes just between them are the following.
[Marina and Esther in the cafeteria]
E: [walking up to Marina from behind] There was a patient that simply didn’t want to let me go.
E: Heyyy… How was the concert last night?
M: Disappointing. But the place was very nice, I’d like to go back there with you.
E: Ah… I checked our shifts and Wednesday we’re both free.
M: Perfect! And your father, have you talked to him meanwhile?
E: Oh, no! I forswore passing the weekend with you to talk to him instead… and he thought it appropriate to spend the entire two days in the pub!
M: Esther… put yourself into his shoes. He was already seeing himself surrounded by grandchildren, to play and to entertain.
E: Listen… [in a very sweet tone] Will we spend the next weekend together?
M: [joking] Nooo….
[Marina and Esther in the operating theater after an intervention]
E: You know, today I talked my father, he is very worried. He said that won’t make it through five days of having to live without me.
M: Oh yes. Well… it’s better if he gets used to it. One day, I might ask you whether you would like to move in with me. ….Do you want to move in with me?
[Esther is speechless]
M: I’m still awaiting an answer on your part…
E: I know.
M: Listen, I know this will seem like simple rhetoric to you, and a little trite, but I want to wake up in the mornings with you at my side.
E: That’s not trite, and it’s not just rhetoric! It’s just that you need to give me a little time!
M: Yes, I know. …But I think that we have a problem… because I love you.
E: okay… done. – I love you, too!

This sneak preview has been made possible thanks to the Italian transcripts by BAM (you rock, girl!). Video thanks to AuntieCallisto. Header screenshot made possible by the episode trailer uploaded by mary_iena. English translation: mine.
These translations/descriptions/sneak previews are just an Italian finger exercise of mine and try to cover the core scenes of Marina and Esther, which means that there may be video footage in the clips on YouTube that is not covered here. I do, however, try my best to include everything that is essential. There may be occasional glitches or mistakes – feel free to point them out in the comments.
