The following article includes spoilers for Legal Mavericks, ending Sunday, September 24, 2017.
TVB legal drama Legal Mavericks <踩過界>, a co-production with China’s IQiyi, has released all 14 episodes of the second season online. With all 28 episodes released, Hong Kong viewers are able to catch the final episodes on IQiyi’s streaming service before the show finishes its original television broadcast in Hong Kong on September 24.
Legal Mavericks, which airs every Saturday and Sunday in Hong Kong, stars Vincent Wong (王浩信) as Hope, a blind lawyer who uses legally controversial methods to fight justice. Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) plays his law clerk Dino, and Owen Cheung (張振朗) plays Gogo, a private investigator. Ali Lee (李佳芯) stars as the high court judge Never, with Pal Sinn (單立文) playing T.Y., the drama’s main villain.
With the release of season two episodes on IQiyi, the cast of Legal Mavericks are urging Hong Kong viewers to stick with the original broadcast, and to not watch ahead. Vincent admitted that he was a bit disappointed with how the broadcast schedules turned out.
Tracy Chu (朱千雪), who guest stars as Vincent’s love interest on the show, said she is confident that the ratings would still hold up despite China’s earlier broadcast. Sisley Choi commented that ratings are beyond their control, and can only hope that Hong Kong viewers would stick to the current schedule.
In the final episodes of Legal Mavericks, Hope Man (Vincent Wong) restores his eyesight after undergoing a surgery. However, on the day he removes his bandages, his love interest Yanice Tai (Tracy Chu) gets brutally murdered. Hope’s friend Gogo (Owen Cheung) is framed to be the murderer, prompting Never Wong (Ali Lee) to step down as high court judge to defend Gogo as his lawyer. In the end, it is discovered that Yanice’s murderer was her own father, T.Y. Tai (Pal Sinn).
As they search for clues to save Gogo, Dino (Sisley Choi) gets into a car accident and Never falls to her death in an attempt to protect a piece of evidence. With nothing left to prove his innocence, Gogo is sentenced to prison and T.Y. is free from charges.
Desperately, Hope capture’s T.Y.’s son and lures him to the warehouse where Yanice was murdered. Hope had set a recording device that was able to prove Gogo’s innocence, and the police rush to the scene to arrest T.Y.
Although Hope has regained his eyesight, he chooses to stay blind. He puts back on his sunglasses, as he wants to use his heart to see the world, rather than his eyes.
In the final scene, a flashback, Hope walks out of the court building with Gogo, Dino, and Never.
