“Sniper Standoff” Big Finale Revealed
It has been a rough ride for TVB television drama, Sniper Standoff <神鎗狙擊>. Achieving only an average rating of 25 points since its premiere in early September, the crime drama was criticized for its gratuitous action and disengaging plot. As the comeback drama for Kathy Chow (周海媚), fans were disappointed in Sniper Standoff’s underwhelming results.
Now in its last week of broadcast, the explosive final episode of Sniper Standoff will air on Friday, October 11. Maybe in an attempt to increase ratings, TVB prematurely released the synopsis of the thrilling final episode online, which had several shocking revelations – the life-or-death battle between Ho Yeung (Michael Tse 謝天華) and Station Sergeant Go (Eddie Cheung) and the assumed death of OCTB Inspector Sheung Koon (Kate Tsui 徐子珊).
After much deliberateness, Yeuk Ling (Kathy Chow) finally decides to turn in the laundered $40 million to the police. While saving Ling from triad boss Hung escapes from police custody and attempts to murder Ling, Sheung is severely injured and falls into a coma. Although Sheung has performed superhuman feats by escaping various explosions and flying bullets in previous episodes, tabloids leaked that her ending will be tragic.
Ting Hau (Alice Chan 陳煒) plans for an escape to Southeast Asia with Yeung, but he still has one last mission to complete. He abducts Ting Sheung Sin (Chun Wong 秦煌) and Ting Fung (Jack Hui 許家傑) and threatens Go to a life-or-death battle. There are only two rules to the game – each gun can only have three bullets, and if Go is unable to kill Yeung in three minutes, he will detonate the bomb attached to Ting Sheung Sin and Ting Fung.
