*Contains Ending spoilers*
I finished watching this very enjoyable series!! The ending- while was not unpredictable, was actually quite satisfying to watch They tied loose ends and had its good dosage of action and suspense. The scene when Joey reappeared freaked me out!! It was quite creepy when Niki saw “herself” in the mirror!!
I felt sorry for Joey Meng’s character (like I have been throughout the series). In the finale, she went through surgery to look exactly like Niki because she was jealous of her and thought Michael liked her. I pity her because everything she did was “for her husband”. I loved the Michael and Joey (as Niki) confession scene the most when she finally realises that she is the one he loved all along, and not Niki. Although everything she did was unforgivable, I still wished inside that she could have had a second chance (well….she kind of did, but you know what I mean). She however, turns good just as she dies saving Michael.
I’m glad the remaining characters get a good ending! Vincent wakes up from his coma and has a happy ending with Elaine! Mandy ends up marrying a decent man and Niki and Bosco also end up together Meanwhile, Michael continues to do good deeds, and while volunteering in the country sides, meets another woman looking exactly like his wife. It is a bit of a cliche cliff hanger ending, but I think it suits this series quite well with a bit of fantasy element in it. Did you guys like the ending? If there could be an alternate ending, what would it be? I read online that Michael’s character was initially going to die in the finale as well, but Michael didn’t want his character to have the same fate as in “Highs and Lows”, so requested the ending and storyline to be changed. He wanted to have a chance to film a sequel to “A Change of Heart” if there were to be one. I would totally love to see a sequel, but TVB haven’t been really good with sequels these days (maybe Triumphant in the Skies II could prove otherwise?)
And on a final note, I was waiting to see this scene from the opening themevideo but it didn’t happen! I thought he was going to turn bad again or something… this scene does look quite interesting.
