Storm in a Cocoon <守業者> aired its two-hour finale on Sunday, March 30. The last segment of the drama intensified as tragic events continued to unfold and affect the once powerful and resplendent Poon household.
The series consists of two main events, with more than the first half dedicated to discovering the truth behind the death of Poon Hau Yi (Akina Hong 康華), the second sister in the family who was an important figure in running their Wing Tai Lung silk factory business. While investigating, Poon Ka Yeung (Steven Ma 馬浚偉) and Tong Bing Bing (Tavia Yeung 楊怡) realize many members of the Poon family are hiding dark secrets. The case of Hau Yi’s death concludes with a shocking surprise, as the murder turns out to be Ka Yeung’s fourth brother, Poon Ka Shing (Yeung Chiu Hoi 楊潮凱).
The latter half of the series introduces a major villain, Chiang Chi Yan (Cheung Kwok Keung 張國強), as he returns to the village in hopes of taking revenge. Chi Yan deceives the Poon family’s eldest son, Poon Ka Hin (Evergreen Mak 麥長青), into believing that he is his biological father. Trusting him wholeheartedly, Ka Hin experiences a drastic change in personality as he is overcome with hatred and eventually sides with Chi Yan to snatch away the Poon household’s fortunes. It is too late when he finally realizes Chi Yan has been lying all along, as his real father Poon Wing Nin (Elliot Yue 岳華) and uncle Poon Wing Cheung (Lee Kwok Lun 李國麟) are already killed. Hung Chor Kau (Matt Yeung 楊明) and Sin Bik Wan (Maggie Siu 邵美琪) also died in the process of trying to prove to Ka Hin that he is indeed Wing Nin’s son.
Another turn of events arise when Bing Bing suspects she is actually Chi Yan’s long lost daughter. After proving this untrue, Ka Yeung makes plans to take revenge. He tricks Chi Yan into believing Bing Bing is his daughter, and uses her against him. When the military finds out Chi Yan has been hiding away weapons, he decides to run away and brings Bing Bing along. She finally tells him the truth that she is not his daughter, and Chi Yan kidnaps her to threaten Ka Yeung. In hopes of saving Bing Bing, Ka Yeung claims she is in fact Chi Yan’s daughter. While Chi Yan experiences a baffling moment, Ka Yeung defeats him and rescues his wife.
The Poon village is hit with a drastic flood that has destroyed much property. Ka Yeung loses contact with Bing Bing, and finally finds her trapped on top of a roof. Since Bing Bing does not know how to swim, Ka Yeung lets her float on top of Wing Tai Lung’s wooden signboard. While in the waters, Ka Yeung unfortunately bumps his head unconscious on a floating log. Failing to grasp onto her husband in midst of the chaos, Bing Bing helplessly watches him sink into the water….
