WHERE TO WATCH/DOWNLOAD (IF YOU KNOW HOW!)
I found a few places you can watch the latest episodes without English subtitles. You can also download the a bit higher quality version in MP4 format. However the comments in comments section are quite colourful. Remember to try all the MIRROR link if one is not available. Anyway try HERE or HERE.NOTEI have written recaps for 2 episodes which you can view after the jump link. Due to this incident with a sexist pig bully, I have stopped the episodic thoughts and back to just ramblings. However do share with me what you think of this series. Further, please do not repost without consent.
Maybe you can help to translate more accurate but my translator says;
For justice and for the innocent people, I can only sacrifice my own love. I am sorry! We will be happy together in another realm/space (I love you). Sincerely, Yau ChingIt could mean Ruco is revealing Carson killed himself or stating the fact; that Carson had to sacrifice Jessica to save the innocent and that they will meet again in heaven, etc. Doesn't mean Carson killed himself, just that he was very upset.
Ruco, if you want to help, why not post the last 2 paragraphs of the script itself? That will answer the question once and for all.
Of course he won't or can't. Because this is TVB's way of generating discussion topic. For me that is the "cheapest" way to do so. The more I see the ending, the angrier I am. Great series but pulled down by a gimmicky nonsensical open ending.
Anyway my shock headline is because of the Chococinno, which is something Carson created for Jessica. Remember the colour of the Chococinno?
See? Black right?
Last scene of Carson;
And by the way if he was poisoned, that is the most cool looking poison-suicide. Nahhh.. just very very tired.
Now before you think "wahhhh so sexy", do bear in mind he was being tortured/electrocuted here. But hey, white tee, wet, Ruco... great combination that will "electrify" you!
Anyway let's move to something more cogent, more lovely and that is the best moments for Carson and Yip Ting. I found a GIF on the kissing scene and more!! Yeah!! All from here. Best if I could find the one where Yip Ting remembers the kiss and it was a closer angle. That one cannot find!
And got picture version also!!
Another cute scene in GIF.
And the pictures version;
It is sad indeed that Carson thinks of Yip Ting only as a friend. He wasted his love on Jessica, and any guilt. Let me clarify; guilt is a powerful emotion that can drive people to either do something stupid or do something good. But in this series, I don't see why Jessica's suicide should be the overpowering reason for Carson's guilt when he wanted to shoot and arrest her when she repeatedly said she will kill herself just minutes prior. Guilt could come from her final hurtful words, the sense that he betrayed her trust. But that is not in Carson's nature and to suddenly end it the way it did if interpreted it that way is really the series' downfall. Just a shock ending. Is it different? No. Is it expected? Not really. Is it refreshing? Hell no! Is it a good ending? No. Could it have been a better ending? Yes and it does not have to involve Carson together with Yip Ting. It can be as simple as a hopeful ending without all the forced negativity. Surely Carson would have realised Jessica would have killed herself with him forcing her to the corner so to speak. So again, it makes no sense, not in real life and not on TV.
And finally the filming version of the cuteness to close it all! Something good to remember about this series.
Again I repeat, I think he was just very tired. So let's wait for Mr Carson aka Ruco himself to comment a bit. In the end I think the series meant to end with him dying, to add to the tragicness and therein lies the series' main and biggest problem; Carson committing suicide is out of character and does not make for a good ending even if it makes for one debatable ending.
EitherJessica dies or doesn't die and turn state witness.Jessica's dad dies gloriously.Negative lives because ATF found the data plans for vaccines. Even though King clearly said vaccines were not really working but Dr Sze may be able to help. Carson waits for Jessica if she doesn't die.Ting moves to US to fulfill her promise to Papa.Mama Carson has her sons back. Last scene will be another major terrorist attack and we see Carson, Ngo Sir, Alfred and gang efficiently move to work and that will be the last scene. If this is true, very disappointed because that is TVB's typical ending. We shall see!!
Last scene will be another major terrorist attack and we see Carson, Ngo Sir, Alfred and gang efficiently move to work and that will be the last scene.
P/S I just remembered Carson has fragments or whatever in his brain from the head wound, remember? Could it be he died unexpectedly from that? Could be! BUT the doctor said the fragments posed no threat and he never had any problems from that so my guess is, no.
