Kudos to Russian fans for their strong support of Tessa & Scott. One can see that T&S were really touched with all the cute gifts etc. As Tessa said they had two banners in Russia and in Canada they have often have none.
My banner is ready and if any of you fans are going to Nats let me know and I will give it to you to hang up there. I can then take it back for worlds.

some articles in russian:
According to first article they did the first version of their FD with Marina but it was too typical so they decided to bring in Jennifer Swan who recreated the choreography.

This is google translate from the first of the three links marikat posted:
I'm very intrigued by them not saying with 100% certainty that they'll retire after Sochi. I expect them to retire but it's interesting that they're not saying it's a sure thing.- Would you say that he was thinking about retirement after Sochi?
Moir: - At least you need to take a break at least for a year (laughter).
Virtue: - Olympic season - it's a good opportunity to run its course in the sport beautifully. But now we can not say exactly when it will happen. To be honest, I actually thought we were finished amateur career in 2010. Itself from itself did not expect that I decide to continue. Rather, we both decide. No one knows exactly what will happen, but we have long ride with Scott and achieved a lot. We would like the sport and is able to achieve comparable success.
Moir: - We have a whole life ahead. And, hopefully, figure skating - it is only one chapter. Sports - it's hard work, which is often the part is not visible, it is the victim who has to bring. Sometimes it seems that you are in the side of what is called "real life." Would not want to miss something.
I would be shocked if the choregraphy wasn't a combination of Marina and Swan.
ETA: I am glad they are using Hallelujah as their Ex, really loving the contrast between Tessa the seductress in Carmen and Tessa the guardian angel in Hallelujah, at least that's my interpretation for that number.

And ditto about the Russian fans they are amazing.
I'm glad Jennifer Swan's input was able to take the program from typical to extraordinary.
The commentator here from Switzerland actually gasps near the end when they do the backflip lift & you hear them going crazy after the program ends, it's so cute!
