Warning: Ending Spoiler!! [All my posts contain spoilers, but this is the ending, so an extra warning message ^__^]
woohoo!! Face to Fate had a good ending ^^ Sorta sad to see it end, I’m happy how things turned out.
The Golden Seal Battle
I didn’t expect the battle between Frankie (Lee Bo Yi) and Raymond (Lai Yeuk Yi) being so short compared to the other competitors, but at least it wasn’t DragonBall Z style in length. I think Frankie would have won Raymond but he didn’t give up on his friend, giving him a chance; both of their souls or minds seemed to be in a different dimension as Frankie tried to convince Raymond. However, Raymond fought back, throwing a pin that shattering Frankie’s soul. Frankie has been killed and Raymond along with the Dark side has been declared the winner. At this point, the Dark Sect leader comes along , now having mastered his ultimate technique, wanting to rule over the world. (On a side not, don’t they have emperors in those days?~ not that it really matters lol) He gave the White side three days to surrender and be his followers or he would kill them all.
Yin Yei Loi finally wakes up
Soon after, the Dark Sect leader taught Raymond to fully master the technique, enabling him to change his blood into the last cure and he saves Selena ^_^(I just love seeing Raymond happy) Unfortunately, as a consequence Selena can never be with him anymore because she can no longer face him … she can not face everyone or all those who have been killed, especially Frankie, for the exchange of her own life. He was no longer the Raymond she knew.
Raymond is by Selena’s side as she wakes up.
Seeing the trailer of Frankie and Raymond fighting the Dark Sect~ it was pretty obvious Frankie wouldn’t have died, but I was curious to see how he would revive. I was guessing this would be a good opportunity for Raymond to redeem himself . I was thinking maybe it was the incent burner he gave Selena to give Frankie to ‘preserve this body longer’ (which was correct! But I never guessed that the pin he threw was only to make Frankie appear dead) I should have known Raymond’s character wasn’t that evil (sorry Raymond ..) I also thought maybe after gaining the blood for the last cure he could revive Frankie the same way he revived Selena. I’m not sure whether its because I knew Frankie would wake up again, but I didn’t feel sad when Frankie died or when Tavia was crying. I would have thought Tavia would have showed strong feelings of angry and suffering to her father who indirectly caused the death of Li Bo Yi. If Raymond’s character had died instead, I know that I would have felt really sad.
Fighting against the Dark Sect Leader
Raymond and Frankie fight the Dark Sect leader together.
It was so cool when Raymond and Frankie were fighting along side each other against the dark sect leader! The two were really o-ordinated and we haven’t seen the two on the same side for a long time. Both Raymond and Frankie were badly injured- blood coming out of their mouth and the Dark Sect leader even blasted right through Raymond o_o) .
John Chiang comes along to save the day lol *phew* xD I think that’s a good way to get rid of the two..both learned deadly attacks..and I guess its sorta a way for John Chiang’s character to redeem himself as well. It’s a good way to end it, with the two daughters there for their final words. The Dark Sect leader was also about to hear Tavia call him ‘father’.
Tavia, as expected, became the leader of the Dark Sect, and as her father predicted, she became the ruler of the Dark/White side (she looks cool in the purple). Because of her position, she was unable to be with Frankie. It had to take her two years to make peace between the Black and White side.
Raymond, Selena and boy live happily ever after ^^ Raymond’s hair has gone back black!! He’s cured!! =D
One Happy family ^^ Their ‘son’ just won in a bun eating competition~
Gotta say Frankie and Tavia’s relationship was so-so. Nothing too romantic but they do end up together after 2 years~ Even after having not met for two years, Frankie doesn’t ask Tavia to leave with him. Tavia makes the move and decides to be with him. The ending is pretty much like the first episode with the two clans fighting (and..how come? I thought they were at peace o.0? Both of them didn’t care either and just walked off xD) With that, the series comes to and end ~ ~
P.s: To Fairy: I didn’t see the ending credit part with White-hair Raymond(white flowers on his head), the boy and Selena either =( Must of missed it..either that, or its a cut scene.
