TVB’s smashing hit series, Lives of Omission《潛 行狙擊》, ended it’s run yesterday night. The cast and crew of “Lives” were gathered at KITEC (Kowloonbay International Trade & Exhibition Centre) for the finale ‘live’ broadcasting event.
Upon watching, Kate Tsui (徐子珊) exposed that the finale broadcasted was actually the new and edited version. In the finale, Bosco Wong‘s (黃宗澤) Cripple Co. was destined to die, not by the hands of onscreen girlfriend Kate Tsui’s Paris but instead through the hands of Michael Tse‘s (謝天華) Laughing-Gor, who had shot and killed him.
Although it was still not sure whether the avid fans of “Lives” would love such an ending and unclear whether the finale ratings would hit a new high, Michael Tse, Bosco Wong, Kate Tsui, Fala Chen (陳法拉), Damien Lau (劉松仁) and etc still had a tremendous night of fun in front of more than two hundred fans.
Damien even showcased his “Chok” skills, which created a commotion from the crowd, such that even “Chok” expert Michael Tse had no choice but to concede defeat.
Michael smiled and professed that he would be exceptionally happy if “Lives” raked in a rating that started with the number four. (Michael meant a rating of 40 points and above)
Whereas for Fala, her character in “Lives” wasn’t as fortunate and had been arranged to die in both the original and alternative ending. Despite that, the alternative ending was filmed as they wanted Madam Jo to die in a more unforgettable and spectacular way such that Laughing-Gor would live with this regret for the rest of his life.
With such an ending, wouldn’t it meant that Madam Jo and Laughing-Gor wouldn’t have a chance to continue their predestined fate in the movie version?
Michael Tse replied, “Well, there can be a lot of methods, for example, recollection scenes. As for shooting a sequel to “Lives of Omission”, it will be decided by the company. If the audience wants it to be film, then it will be filmed.” Michael professed that he has the confidence to fight for TV King as his role as Laughing-Gor received resounding responses from netizens as well as viewers from the Mainland.
Fala’s Madam Jo death reflects Laughing-Gor’s pain
Fala expressed that she really likes this arrangement of “having to die sooner or later, somehow or another”, “Laughing’s agony and pain could only be truly brought out with my character’s death and following my character’s death incident, his actions would be more justifiable in the future, much more cool and unrestrained. I hope that the ratings would hit 38 points!”
As for tabloids magazines saying that she had exposed that Marie Zhuge (諸葛紫岐) has gotten married, Fala expressed that she has never said that, “I always place my work life separate from my private life. I won’t talk about other people’s matters.”

Bosco’s Cripple Co. was killed by Kate Tsui’s Paris in the other ending
Kate Tsui revealed that in the other ending of “Lives of Omission”, her character, Paris, ultimately turned out to be an undercover and was arranged to kill Bosco’s Cripple Co. all by herself, “How the movie would turn out, whether Cripple Co. could be resurrected from the dead, is definitely something worth looking out for.”
Kate laughed and said that she didn’t have the power to request for another sequel to “Lives”. Kate also expressed that she was afraid that fans will be unhappy as there were too many kissing and intimate scenes, such that lesser males were coming near her.

Bosco laughed and said that his character must die in the show, it was just a matter of dying from whose hands, “Now that my character has died in Laughing’s hands, I feel very satisfied as a villain must be killed by someone else, in order for the ending to be gratifying!”
Asked Bosco whether he had the interest to shoot the movie version or sequel to “Lives”, he replied, “If I come back to life, it must be on reasonable terms, there must also be a valid reason for my close shave with death. I hope to see the ratings hit the number four (40 and above).”
Virginia Lok self-professed that she has TVB’s blood flowing inside her
TVB’s production and resource director Virginia Lok (樂易玲) also attended the event that night, apparently undeterred from the rumors that she was planning to leave TVB or had lost power, “I won’t leave today, I won’t leave tomorrow, I have TVB’s blood flowing inside me.”
What about rumors that she was poached with a huge salary? Virginia responded, “If you asked me, I would definitely say yes, if not I won’t have any “face” left. Actually, why would I want to leave? There’s no reason for it. Everything is currently status quo. We have been holding meetings as per normal and discussing about work for the next year. The matters and people working in the company have remained the same, everyone gets along well with one another.”
Virginia expressed that she has worked for TVB for eight years now and through these eight years, her EQ (emotional quotient) has increased significantly. Virginia also remarked that Stephen Chan‘s (陳志雲) EQ was really high as he could be calm and composed when faced with problems and solve them with a clear mind.
As for the legal department of Hong Kong filing an appeal against Stephen, Virginia responded, “I really do not know. But I see that everything seems to be operating as per normal. As for those recent rumors about me, I won’t be affected by them.”
