Warning: Ending Spoiler!! [All my posts contain spoilers, but this is the ending, so an extra warning message ^__^]
Last night I finished watching the final episode for Catch Ne Now and I have to say I was quite impressed with the episode. The episode kept its action and suspense throughout and I was sitting on the edge of my seat!
Damien (Jack) decided to lure out Evergreen once and for all by asking his lawyer friend who networked with various people, to nominate and give an award to him for his contributions to charity/society. After long hiding, Evergreen decided to accept the challenge to appear for the award and use this opportunity to get rid of Jack …
Joe’s duty was to stop Evergreen and Damien from killing each other and when Fala knew, she didn’t want Joe involved in the case because she was worried he may get killed in the process. Fala ends up lying to Joe that she was pregnant, giving him additional burden in hope he would let go of his duties and spend more time with her; for her and their baby.
On the other hand, Idy tried to convince Damien not to seek revenge but she knew he wouldn’t…He arranged for her and her son to move over to New Zealand first and that he’ll join her shortly, but she said she would stay by his side and travel to New Zealand with him. Knowing he would be in danger, Idy tells Damien that she wants to marry him.
[A talk between Damien and Keyman]
Keyman: She openly said she wants to get married, what are you going to do?
Jack: Sometimes I think she’s really clever. She gave me a very difficult problem.
Keyman: She knows you’re a man who values and is responsible in a relationship. For her to suggest, is hoping you’ll have something to worry about, so you can put down your revenge.
Jack: If I put down revenge, you think I can face BT?
Keyman: But if you don’t marry her, you’ll hurt her.
Jack: If I get married with her, if something happens to me, I would ”ruin” her.
Keyman: Hard choice between love and friendship is like this. But before you make a decision, I’ll tell you something. When my wife found out I was a thief and I needed to take risks, the first thing she did..
Jack: Was wanting to marry you?
Keyman: *nods* Her way of saying it was, if something did happen to me, at least we did become a married couple, better than not having that fate and regretting it.
Jack: Sometimes I do feel that love is so significant.
Keyman: For “Ah-so” (sister-in-law) to do that is really hard. She feels that this type of request is a method or whatever, even at this time she is willing to marry you, there’s only one reason and that’s because she truly loves you.
Jack: Ever since something happened to my first girlfriend, I already decided to be single…but I don’t know why, I don’t know why, or when, I developed feelings for Yung Yung (Idy).
Keyman: If you could understand, you wouldn’t be so troubled.
After much consideration, Damien proposes to Idy =)
Damien: Marry me. I want to grow old with you.
Idy: Are you serious? *Damien nods* Then you’re proposing to me?Aren’t you going to take revenge for Ben? You’re willing to give up for me?
Damien: I thought for a long time. I don’t want you to be unhappy. I feel that I should give you a title. Ben’s issue, I have decided to let Joe handle it. I finished saying what I wanted..are you still willing to marry me?
Idy: *nods* I waited this long, just for this day to come. =)
Damien and Idy get married.
Damien lies, saying he would put down his revenge for BT and go to New Zealand to start their new life together..
Idy: What do you think we’d be like when we get older?
Damien: Like other grannies and grandpa’s, sitting by the wharf, dating and watching the sunset.
Idy: So romantic.. I never imagined myself to have such happiness.
Just before the plane lifts off, Damien leaves the plane. ..
He gets stopped by Joe and taken back to the police station and tried to keep him there until the end of the award ceremony.
Damien ends up getting his lawyer friend to talk to the head and bail him out because they could be sued for misusing their power for confining him (for no practical reason). After that, Joe receives a call from Fala who realises she really has his baby. She calls him to go find her (somewhere far away), saying something has happened. Worried for his wife, Joe leaves to find her. When Fala started telling him she was really pregnant, Joe didn’t believe her as Sharon had already told him the pregnancy test previously did not belong to her. In midst of anger and desperation to get back to the crime scene, he pushes Fala out of his way who falls, then finally realises she was telling the truth.
As they wait for the rescuers to come, Joe wants to make Fala lose her worries and starts asking whether they wanted it to be a boy or a girl..when Fala asked Joe what kind of child he would like him/her to grow up into, Joe replied:
“He doesn’t have to be rich, or smart. I just want him to be a righteous person who is responsible in society ”
It was then Fala has realised she shouldn’t stop Joe from being the righteous man he wants to be and tells him to go back to his duty as a police and that she’ll be ok ^^ The people arrive and the baby was confirmed to be ok =)
Damien meets up with his team and together (with help with Madracer), they put fake dummies into the car and automated it, so when Evergreen and his men activates the bomb, the car explodes and they think the whole team has been killed.
At the scene, the thief team successfully enters the awards ceremony and during a magic show on stage where they invited Evergreen to be part other performance, they successfully capture him. Joe realises what has happened and chases after them. Long Leg Crab and Keyman were holding off Joe while Damien escapes with Evergreen as hostage. Unfortunately, Evergreen’s men were already surrounding the car park lot and Damien loses grip of him. The police also arrive creating a shooting scene. At the end, Damien and Evergreen were at each other alone themselves and shot numerous times almost by their faces!
Damien: Jill Gwan Ho, you killed Ben, you won’t get away from it! You know I won’t let you off it!
Evergreen: You have a big life, I’ve killed you several times and you still survived. Not only your cousin, I’ve also killed Alex. Whoever gets in my way will get killed!
Damien: Kill me and you won’t get away with it!
Evergreen: You are the one who is holding my hostage, killing you is only defense. If I kill someone, it’s only protecting myself. I, Jill Gwan Ho have so much money, even if I do kill you, I have so much money I will find the top lawyer to help me get out of it! That’s how unfair this world is! The law protects rich people! You poor person! Ko-Jit, you can’t defeat me!
*Damien starts smiling and looks down at Evergreen’s pocket* What are you smiling at? You crazy? *Evergreen looks down at his pocket*
Damien: Everything that you have just said has been broadcasted through this wireless microphone! Not only at the charity event, but the audience from all over Hong Kong has jsut heard what you just said! Do you think there’s justice?
I thought this part was so awesome !! 😀 Damien managed to lure Evergreen into admitting all the bad things he has done, and uncovered his true ugly self to everyone , with his words being broadcasted~ Jack so smart!!
Joe arrives with Idy and Evergreen ‘s father who tries to persuade them to put their guns down. The other police arrive and they were surrounded. The two are slowly convinced by their loved ones to give in, however, Evergreen decided it was too late and attempts to shoot Damien! Evergreen’s father saw and attempted to block/protect Damien and Damien himself attempted to move Evergreen’s father out of the way but it was too late. Evergreen’s father gets shot by his own son, Joe shoots Evergreen, and through the chaos, another police shoots Damien …Jack/Damien ends up getting killed…
[1 Year later] the rest of the narration is told by Idy..
*She decided to stay in Hong Kong to continue to help run his business and constantly move between Hong Kong and visiting her son in New Zealand.
*Long leg Crab, Madracer and Keyman have started a new life in NewZealand, and are unable to return to Hong Kong.
*Before Evergreen died, he donated his organ to his father, so his father survived. Evergreen’s father decided to give in to the police by admitting the crime he did 25 years ago when he killed Damien’s parents in the fire.
*Sharon continues to run BT’s business and it has become very successful.
*In the final scene, Idy is watching the sunset ..
Damien is by her side and tells her that he’ll always be there looking over her…
In the gun scene, Jack doesn’t die because Evergreen is shot by Joe before he gets the chance to shoot. Instead of dying, Jack gets arrested and goes to jail.
(Idy gives the same final speech to Damien as the original before he dies/before he gets arrested) In the final scene where Idy is watching the sunset, Jack appears (released from jail) and the two hug each other.

Thoughts on the Endings. (The part where the alternate ending continues..)
I actually prefer the original ending over the alternate. Or maybe its the fact I’ve seen the original and then the alternate and can see how Idy uses the same speech for Damien when he was dying or going to jail~ it sounds a bit like a joke. It doesn’t seem that appropriate for her to be saying the same thing to someone who is dying or going to jail. I guess I can’t really take the fact Jack has to go to jail =( I don’t want Jack to go to jail because I believe he shouldn’t, I still feel its unfair he has to go to jail…if someone was to go to jail it should be Evergreen. In that respect, I would rather like Jack die, the consequence of being a thief is the dangerous situation and risk he had to take, rather than being imprisoned. Does anyone get what I mean or am I just rambling on? :P) Yes, I understand he is a thief, good one or bad and should be punished, its just a preference thing I guess for Jack’s case. it’s cooler for him to die in action than..yeh..lol My thoughts anyway.
The main difference I guess is Idy at the end. In the original she looks sad watching the sunset alone, while in the alternate she is happy because Damien is by her side. Which ending do you prefer?
