Apparently everything was prearranged by Yat Gor. Yat Got saw through Szeto and Fok Chun Sing’s plan to get his team to help them. He went along with it because it let them get close to Fok Chun Sing easier. Yat Gor was also the one who planted the picture at Jeung Tin Leung’s mansion so that they would find out there was an illegitimate son. He thanks Yee Jai for helping him by pretending to be the illegitimate son so that he’s free to continue investigating.

Yat Gor also admits that ever since he decided to start on this path for revenge, he knew it was going to be dangerous and didn’t want to involve Win Jeh. That’s why he pushed her away.

It’s morning out and the pair are on their way back when Yat Gor feels like someone is following them. He tells Yee Jai to go back first. Then he walks to the church where he and Win Jeh were going to get married. He calls Win Jeh to come out.

  1. I’m so confused!!!! I thought win jeh was the one who kept pushing Yat gor away after he betrayed her. Why did she come back to find Yat gor after the video? Didn’t she already know that Yat gor still likes her and stuff when he tried to patch up with her in previous episodes? And yet she still confronts him for missing her??? 🤔

    1. Haha I think after she saw the video, she realized he didn’t really betray her and that he was just pushing her away for reasons unknown to her at the time. She knows he still has feelings for her but he refuses to admit it so what can a girl do? I hope this helps? lol
