Warning: Ending Spoiler!! [All my posts contain spoilers, but this is the ending, so an extra warning message ^__^]
Episode 19 had lots of suspense, especially with Kate trying to escape out of bed and pretend to be unconscious so the others won’t notice. She was in a really dangerous position! The sister was freaky as well, opening the door twice in a row and Sammul pretending that something happened to their son. I was so scared Kate would fall for it >__<” but luckily she didn’t. All the thunderstorm-ing nights added to the atmosphere and it was also useful for the storyline plot (how Kate escapes).
The final episode was a bit bland. Bosco and co, managed to trick the bunch of bad guys into thinking they had real evidence against them, and they ended up trying to escape and they ended up getting killed. What annoyed me throughout the series with the evil bunch is their acting. The leader just laughs and tries to deny everything when evidence is held against him. They just don’t seem that convincing.
So..what is the price of greed (according to this story)? I believe its death. The bad guys could have gotten away with it (maybe?) if they had stopped after cheating all the money off the first girl. Or the second one; but being greedy they go after more rich girls which causes the truth to come out. But what doesn’t make much sense is the price paid by all those innocent people as well. Lots of innocent people died in the series including the doctor Ben (Kate’s school friend) who was obviously not greedy. Other than Sammul, the rest of the evil gang wanted to stop and escape when they thought the good guys had evidence against them. Do they die less painfully than Sammul who has decided to continue to be greedy? I don’t think so..
How did it end? I’m quite surprised Bosco ends up with Kate actually. I would have thought Bosco ends up with Shirley, but instead, Shirley just wants Bosco to be happy and she buries her feelings for him. She ends up going overseas, taking her opportunity to become a violinist and her mother goes with her.
Overall, I enjoyed the second half of the story better than the first half simply because it was not as draggy and I did not like much of Shirley’s story. The second half picked up faster, so I’d rate this series 7/10
