Warning: Ending Spoiler!! [All my posts contain spoilers, but this is the ending, so an extra warning message ^__^]
Because Linda had lied to Raymond that she was at home when he called, Raymond started questioning her what had really happened to Grandma during that time and he eventually finds out she was actually with Bosco. She even dare tell him the reason Bosco had left England in the first place etc! It’s like..so what ?? Bosco was back interfering in their relationship and it was frustrating again to see Linda so indecisive, and every time she was unhappy with Raymond she’ll go find Bosco >< Linda doesn’t know how to deal with problems herself and is always relying on other guys. Other than Bosco, the family matters with Ah Hong wanting to take over the business is causing problems for the two too. They try to patch up but more misunderstandings arise when both of them wanted to give the other a surprise and went to find the other, while saying they were elsewhere. When Raymond wanted to clear up their misunderstandings, Linda claimed to be “tired” and “didn’t want to talk about it”. She simply did not put any effort into their relationship! That is just so slack..and when Bosco called Linda to chat, she was wide awake and cheerfully chatting away..Doesn’t this just prove she’s not interested in Raymond anymore? This is just so unfair to him! How could Raymond not be angry at Bosco?? or Linda?? Later, she feels that they need time away from each other..and what does she do? She goes to Singapore …with Bosco >< I think that just makes matters worse!
On the other hand, with Kate, Louis and JoBao’s old workers on Ah Hong’s side, she successfully lies and twists the truth in court, making JoBao seem like he did absolutely nothing for the business! Adding to that, ‘he was cheating on her and constantly went to HorMa’s place’ . Things were looking really bad on JoBao and they didn’t have solid evidence. Even the piece of evidence showing that JoBao had borrowed money to start the business had gone missing. It was really frustrating yet exciting to watch.
Later, JoBao wanted to negotiate with Ah Hong out of court and just settle the dispute by agreeing with whatever she had to offer because he didn’t want to continue on with the case and for HorMa to be constantly abused and labeled as “Wu Lei Jing”. However, Ah Hong added the condition that he must sign a document declaring he really is’ having an affair with HorMa’ and deliberately got reporters to come and make it seem like he was admitting his mistakes. HorMa comes out and reveals more bad things that Ah Hong did, clearly laying out the fact that Ah Hong was the one who took her husband in the first place. She reads out the letter that Ah Hong had written for JoBao back then. Reinforcing the authenticity of the letter, JoBao was even able to recite the letter out!! Yay for HorMa! haha take that Ah Hong! =P
Eventually the court trials leads into Ah Hong’s lawyer constantly questioning and interrogating HorMa and Jobao into admitting they were secretly seeing each other, asking things like ‘Have you ever thought about making up? If he told you he wanted to get back with you, would you?’ It was so frustrating because as if it was any of his business anyway! HorMa stood strongly saying that she will not answer questions that are “what ifs”. However, when JoBao was pushed to the limits, he used the opportunity and put together the courage to confess in front of everyone in court the mistake he has made right from the beginning- abandoning his family and wife. If HorMa was willing to give him a chance, he would definitely take it! Even if he doesn’t end up with anything at the end of the case, as long as he can have his wife and family back, he’ll definitely agree. Aww!! So sweeeeet XD (Even though coming out of an older man ahah) HorMa must have been so was touched!
At the end, 80% of the business was given to Ah Hong, and only 20% to JoBao but he was content. He had won back HorMa and his family and that was what was most important to him =D YAY! Finally “Ga Ho Yuet Yuen’ haha 🙂 The family were planning to live on happily ever after but Ah Hong got really pissed off (haha) that she decided to make an appeal to court and attempt to leave them with nothing.
When Susanna went to talk to Kate in hope to wake her up, Kate almost gets run over by a car but Susanna pushes her away, putting herself in danger instead.
At a press conference where Ah Hong told Kate to announce her divorce with Chris, and his criminal behaviour in Thailand, Kate instead spoke out all of Ah Hong’s evil doings and the fact she was the one who pushed Grandma down the stairs! It turns out that Grandma had returned to take back the signed document proving JoBao had borrowed money to start up the business and in order for Ah Hong to get it back, she pushed Grandma! I predicted this would happen but I just felt it was a little unrealistic? I guess it was the part where Susanna almost got run over saving her that really impacted her and somehow Kate had a hidden conscience? I just have to accept the fact that Kate really has changed because we don’t see much of her after this incident…
Having revealed this in front of everyone, they attempt to arrest Ah Hong and Raymond calls Linda to inform her about her mother and she flies back to Hong Kong. Ah Hong tried to lie to Linda but she didn’t believe her.
She tells her that she doesn’t want anything to do with the family anymore and wants to go overseas, get married with Bosco and start a new life with him. Linda breaks up with Raymond and leaves with Bosco…[Actually it wasn’t even break up,Linda ‘just’ informed her boyfriend that she will be marrying Bosco -_-]
Because of this, Ah Hong trusted her and gave all her shares of the business to Linda. It turns out that it was all an act by Linda and Bosco in gaining Ah Hong’s trust. In front of everyone, Linda transfers the ownership back to JoBao and HorMa, the real owners 🙂
Since everything was an act, Bosco returns Linda to Raymond and the two are finally (and for the last time) back together again XD
And so, Ah Hong gets arrested and eventually learns to ‘let go’. I’m surprised that’s it with her character. She didn’t seem to change or show any sign of self-realisation or any reflections in what she had done wrong. I felt she should have told them what Grandma had said to her before she left, but I guess it really isn’t that important anyway. It also shows that te family also learnt to let go.
Lin Ji Yung also comes back to visit 😀 His appearance was awesome, was quite happy to see him again since he was such a cool character. The family is now happily together and reunited.
Cute little scene with Wayne, Susanna and Louis ^^ I actually thought there was gonna be some love triangle between these three characters.
On Tavia’s birthday, Moses buys her a teddy bear. As he rests on her shoulder, they made it appear like he died ‘lights turned off..’
Years past and Moses also survived past 35 years old and he lives!
Tavia looks so pretty XD
haha..why does everyone looks so old fashioned??
Moses is married with Tavia with children, Linda is with Raymond and everyone is happy..Ah Hong is freed from jail and has turned good, traveling around herself and has finally accepted Linda with Raymond.
Having written episode summaries/thoughts for 40 episodes, I don’t want to write another whole review on MR ^^ So making some brief comments, there are flaws in this series (like every other TVB series) especially with the romantic-plot/ aspect of the story, but the 40 episodes have been entertaining and worth the time. I thoroughly enjoyed watching MR for its great warm-felt family plot and acting from the many many veterans 🙂 You also slowly learn to love many of the characters as they changed. I was touched in many of the episodes and the series kept me wanting to watch more.
The major let down would have to be Raymond/Linda/Bosco Love Triangle. It got so draggy and annoying to watch! I really hated Linda’s character here. She was just a weak character who kept crying so easily over the smallest issues. Raymond deserves someone SO MUCH better..(haha, you’ve probably all figured after reading the episode summaries on how annoyed I was with her, so I’ll stop here)
I would recommend the series to everyone! I think it exceeds its prequel Heart of Greed in many many areas 🙂 The story was engaging from the start! Give the series a go if you haven’t already!
