Ruco Chan and Linda Chung’s Ending in “Brother’s Keeper 2” Overshadows Main Cast
Even Grace Chan’s (陳凱琳) skinny dipping couldn’t take the limelight from Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣).
TVB’s latest drama Brother’s Keeper 2 <巨輪II>, sequel to the original 2013 drama, sees Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) and Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) return as Lo Wai-son and Yiu Man-ying, respectively, as they race against time in modern-day Hong Kong and Macau. The sequel also stars new cast members Hugo Ng (吳岱融) and Grace Chan, who plays Edwin’s love interest. Original cast members Ruco Chan and Linda Chung return in the sequel as only supporting stars, appearing in only the first five episodes.
Episode five, which aired last Friday, mainly centered on Sam (Ruco Chan) and his reunion with ex-girlfriend Rachel (Linda Chung), who was left crippled after a terrible car accident. The couple overcome their obstacles and finally get together, marrying in the final moments of episode five.
The episode marks the official end of Sam and Rachel’s tumultuous love story, which crossed twenty years. It also marks the last appearances by Ruco and Linda in the sequel.
Viewers rated episode five positively. Fans were happy to see Sam and Rachel finally with a happy ending, as their relationship ended with regret in the prequel. Many netizens said episode five felt like a finale for the series.
Ruco and Linda’s screen time, albeit brief, took the limelight from the main cast. Their characters’ reunion and subsequent marriage became the main topic of discussion amongst online forums. Even Grace’s first appearance in episode five, which was of her skinny dipping in a pool, failed to garner the viewers’ interest.
Many fans are upset that they won’t be seeing Sam and Rachel again in the series. Noting Ruco and Linda’s impact in episode five, a netizen joked, “Brother’s Keeper 2 ended with only five episodes. What a classic.” Another said, “I have no interest in watching Brother’s Keeper 3 on Monday.”
