The viewership ratings for TVB drama Lives of Omission <潜行狙击> continued to rake in high ratings. Last week’s overall ratings were 31 points, with the highest rating peaking at 33 points (approximately 2.11 million viewers tuned in).
Lives of Omission will broadcast its final episode on September 9th, which will be followed up with another movie version (due to start filming soon), in order to strike the iron while it’s hot and to let the trend persist further. It was estimated that on the night of the finale, the cast and crew of Lives of Omission appear at the Kowloon Bay International Trade and Exhibition Centre (KITEC also known as Emax) to watch the last episode together with viewers.
Since last year’s No Regrets <义海豪情>, TVB has not organized such a large-scale drama finale promotional dinner for half a year now. It can be seen that this series was given high emphasis by TVB. Thus producer Chong Wai-Kin (莊偉健) didn’t rule out the possibility of filming a sequel for Lives of Omission after completing the movie version of it.
Amended Original Ending to Accommodate Audience’s Reaction
The finale spoilers for Lives of Omission were exposed earlier, which originally included the death of Fala Chen’s (陈法拉) Jodie and Kate Tsui’s (徐子珊) Paris risking death to betray Bosco Wong’s (黄宗泽) Cripple Co. With regards to this, Chong Wai-Kin expressed that the last episode has yet to be edited. The exposed spoilers earlier may not be the true ending. Thus, he might make amendments to the last episode to suit the audience’s reaction.
Chong Wai-Kin also remarked that in the finale story, Fala’s death was an undecided case and there was a story behind it. Whether Fala’s Jodie character had actually died was still unknown and the truth will only be revealed in the movie version of Lives of Omission.
As for Bosco and Kate’s final ending in the drama, all will be decided this week during the editing. Chong Wai-Kin revealed that Damien Lau’s (刘松仁) role was initially a villainous character. However, everyone felt that it was too heavy and made some amendments, thus he had the confidence that the audience will be anticipative of it.
Asked whether Lives of Omission will be shooting a sequel, he professed that everything has to wait until the movie version started filming. As long as there’s good praise and high ratings, there will be a chance of shooting a sequel.

Ah K: Felt like throwing stones when the producer replied that the truth of Fala’s death will only be revealed in the movie version of “Lives of Omission”! What?! -_-“
