“The Exorcist’s 2nd Meter” Recap: The Demon Returns
The Exorcist’s 2nd Meter <降魔的2.0> premiered last Monday to much fanfare, and after a week of broadcasts, the TVB drama has proven that it still has a lot left to offer.
Monday’s episode brings back the now demonized Chin-ming (Hugo Wong 黃子恆), whose mortal body died in the last series. Meanwhile, the parents of Hau-yee (Nicole Wong 黃雪兒) are arrested for child abuse, and Felicity (Mandy Wong 黃智雯) gets the feeling that there is more to the case than just meets the eye. Siu Ma (Kenneth Ma 馬國明) suggests that Felicity and Hau-yee may be spiritually linked, allowing the two to connect to each other through dreams. Hau-yee’s parents are released on bail, and they resume their drug-addicting lives. The following day, the parents are discovered dead in their village home.
The public do not feel remorse about the death of Hau-yee’s parents. Siu Ma believes that it was Chin-ming who had actually returned to kill them. Fully maxed and leveled up, Chin-ming overpowers even Ho Jai (Hubert Wu 胡鴻鈞), which in turn makes Siu Ma to believe that Chin-ming may be someone else entirely. Chin-ming’s pregnant girlfriend Ling (Iris Lam 林凱恩) wants Siu Ma and Felicity dead for killing Chin-ming, and Siu Ma is afraid that Felicity would become the demon’s next target. Felicity doesn’t want Siu Ma to face the demon alone. Siu Ma finally confesses to Felicity of what he knows, and introduces her to his friends in the spirit world, kickstarting Felicity’s own journey of exorcising demons. Ho Jai and Siu Ma attempt to convince Ling to let go of her fixation on avenging Chin-ming’s death.
