“Dead Wrong” Recap: Setting Up for a Sad Ending?

The following article contains spoilers for Dead Wrong, ending on December 17, 2016.

As the series finale draws closer, online discussion forums are heating up faster, all offering theories on how Vincent’s revenge story will end.

TVB anniversary drama Dead Wrong <致命復活> will be airing its last episode on Saturday, December 17. The Lam Chi-wah (林志華) drama stars Roger Kwok (郭晉安) as Vincent, a man who seeks revenge on those who caused his imprisonment in a deserted island for ten years.

With only a few days left before the great finale, the show is finally starting to tie up loose ends with major revelations.

Last week, we’ve learned that most of the show’s main characters had, one way or another contributed, to Vincent’s ten-year imprisonment. His boss CK (KK Cheung 張國強), upset with Vincent’s betrayal, had connived with a Vietnamese gang member to start a strike, so that Vincent would be forced to temporarily leave Hong Kong to go to Vietnam. Vincent’s extreme methods had angered the gang, and he was captured for ransom along with Max (Vincent Wong 王浩信). Max left Vincent behind after escaping, indirectly leading to Vincent’s recapture.

Vincent’s older brother Lung (Jerry Ku 古明華), who was in huge debt at the time, had stole half of Vincent’s ransom money. Yan (Kenny Wong 黃德斌), filled with hatred after discovering that Vincent had cheated on Cathy (Joey Meng 萬綺雯), destroyed all traces of evidence that would have led to Vincent’s whereabouts.

With all characters involved, there seems to be no final boss for the show. But will Vincent succeed in his quest exact revenge, or will he find his redemption and learn to forgive?

Tracy Goes Blind, Emma Dies

After realizing that Yan was the one who had tried to stop people from finding his whereabouts, Vincent starts to use the people around him to force Yan to reveal the truth in front of Cathy. The plan ends up failing; Cathy never witnessed Yan’s confession, and his younger cousin Tracy (Stephanie Ho 何雁詩), who was used to lure Yan, loses her eyesight. Feeling guilty, Max tells Vincent that he would no longer help him. The incident triggers Max, and his PTSD symptoms worsen. His friend Emma (Zoie Tam 譚凱琪) also ends up getting innocently killed by a bomb set by Yan, which was originally meant for Vincent.

According to spoilers, the series finale will focus on Yan as the final villain, and he does whatever it takes to prevent Cathy from knowing the truth. But Cathy soon discovers Yan’s secret, and she tries to stop him from harming Vincent any further. She begs him to return to Vietnam with her to start a new life, which Yan reluctantly agrees.

In Vietnam, Cathy is heartbroken when she finds that Yan had never stopped thinking about destroying Vincent. Yan lures Vincent into an abandoned factory so he can kill him.

    But this only showed Yan destroyed the evidences to find Vincent. Who is the boss for kidnapping? No more casts already right? So in the end, Vincent was the one plotting his own kidnapping, but went wrong because of all factors, thus been trapped for 10 years? Hmm……

    Is Cathy trying to overcompensate because she loves Vincent the most or she too has something to do with his kidnapping? The revelation that she knew of the affair and she was telling someone but who is THAT someone? Savio Tsang? Was he the third boy in the orphanage picture who took a particular dislike over Ivy (aka did what he did to her to her death) was on Cathy’s bequest? That was why he looked shocked at Yan pointing his gun at him? Will Vincent’s anger finally be solved when he knew ultimately he himself is to be blamed for his own kidnapping but almost everyone (except Max’s father, brother, emma, Tracy, his son and perhaps his pet dog if he has one) has something indirectly to do with his subsequent 10 year prison?


    I am happy Yan is despicable. I was disappointed though that Vincent was actually speaking to a taunting Yan over the phone. Was hoping he was crazy. And it finally took an unhinged drugged angry dude to scream at the oh so deserving despicable sister in law and the son (i really don’t like the son but when vincent screamed at his son that was so out of character).

    Roger Kwok is the TV King. he has to be. Such a stupid script and yet here he was nailing the crazy repetetive angry vengeful guy who couldn’t control his anger. Superb.

    Poor poor poor Emma. Another reason for Max to bury his head in the sand. Poor poor poor Max.

      @funnlim Maybe it’s like what you said. The rapist seems super violent with Ivy. But when it’s almost Cathy’s turn, he doesn’t seems to be violent.

      But I don’t understand why people blaming Vincent for Emma’s death. The bomb was put by Yan. Vincent did not expect anyone else to go there. It’s Max who disclosed the where bouts to Emma in the first place. To me, it has nothing to do with Vincent at all.

    Blame vincent? Why not max? I mean blame supe psycho yan who tried to blast vincent twice, shoot him once, taunted him, gave him drugs, wanted the annoying son to die, … all in two eps. Psycho.

    Still trying to decide if any of them even is directly involved iwth vincents kidnapping.

    It would’ve been Uber cool though if the final boss was a woman, specifically his wife. Scary but so badass

    Lousy ending nothing impressive this time for Roger’s character I don’t think he can win for best actor. Roger is definitely out for best actor for tonight…yes the rest of the actors stand a very good chance of winning.

      @lucida Nothing to do with character but acting itself. I am hoping Roger wins. He was superb in an insipid series.

        Roger’s acting is good but for this series there’s nothing to shout about is quite boring towards the end.

        @funnlim The TVB award show is rigged. No way that “A Fist” was better than “Dead Wrong”.

      @lucida i miss good quality script like Last One Standing, thought this drama is similar, but no, it is miles under. It is not about Roger or other, but the story and script. It sounds like a beast thriller suspense, but turns out boring and a mess unfortunately. I don’t remember there was a time I felt thrilled or suspended watching.

    Does anybody have a link to the alternate ending or even know what they had planned? Probably Vincent going to jail?
