The following article contains spoilers for Bet Hur, ending on August 4, 2017.
Bet Hur <賭城群英會> has dropped another shock to its viewers this week, as another major character gets brushed off the table top. Following the deaths of Sze-dan Gor and Sap-sam Mui (portrayed by Nat Chan 陳百祥 and Monica Chan 陳法蓉 respectively) comes another unfortunate character death.
In the latest episode of the gambling drama produced by Wong Jing (王晶), Scott (portrayed by Dominic Ho 何浩文) marries To Sing’s (portrayed by Lau Siu-ming 劉兆銘) granddaughter Dorothy (portrayed by Louisa Mak 麥明詩) to get even closer to the family, avenging for his master’s death. To Sing, not wanting the wedding to be disrupted, gathers some assassins to kill Scott’s true love Siu-pak (portrayed by Samantha Ko 高海寧). Siu-pak immediately calls Scott for help, but assassins got to her before he could could take any action. Siu-pak falls to her death. Scott does not find out about her death until after he watches the news. He struggles to contain his tears as he hides his grief and pain from the To family.
Siu-tung (portrayed by Charmaine Sheh 佘詩曼), Siu-pak’s sijeh, witnesses her death. She rushes to Siu-pak’s dead body, face wrecked with tears, and pleads for passersby to call the police. Netizens hailed the scene as yet another “god-level” Charmaine performance.
Even Samantha Ko herself took to social media to express her thoughts about Charmaine’s performance. “Even though it’s through the screen I could still feel Siu-tung’s pain,” she wrote on Instagram. “[I’m] crying alongside as I watch!”
