TVB comedy drama Al Cappuccino <反黑路人甲> is keeping viewers on the edge of their toes as the main characters go on a hunt to uncover the killer behind Chiang and his two sons. William Cheung Sai Lun (Vincent Wong 王浩信), a struggling but dedicated actor from the United States, gets raked into this mystery after Inspector Rachel Koo (Crystal Fung 馮盈盈) convinces him to take up the identity of Chiang’s long lost third son Chiang Sai Lung to become the Union Gang’s dragon leader. With the support of undercover cop Ko Bun (Owen Cheung 張振朗), William searches for theChiangs’ true killer.
Meanwhile, KT (KK Cheung 張國強), the Deputy Commissioner of Police, is giving his subordinates pressure to solve the case quickly so he could be promoted to CP. Master Sun (David Chiang 姜大衛)—the leader of Luen Hing Sing—learns from his own sources that Madam Koo had been in contact with Ko Bun, and that William could possibly be a police informant.
Currently, there are three major suspects who may be behind killing the Chiangs. The first is Luen Wong Sing’s Crazy Chung (Tsui Wing 徐榮). Boasting that he could be a better dragon leader than any other potential candidate, he is the most obvious suspect from the start. While Crazy Chung is obviously capable, he lacks the craftiness and deception of carrying out a skilled assassination.
The next major suspect is Luen Hing Sing’s Master Sun, who has made several attempts to stop William from advancing to the dragon leader position. He attempts to find proof of William’s true background, and also obtains through a source that Ko Bun is working for the police.
The final suspect is Madam Koo’s father, the businessman and film investor Victor Koo (Shek Sau 石修), who is not only in a good relationship with KT, but also has a secret agreement and exchange with Master Sun.
There is, however, also a fourth major suspect—Superintendent Winson Szeto (Jack Hui 許家傑) of the Organised Crime and Triad Bureau. There is speculation among netizens that Szeto Sir is a mole planted into the police force by the triad. There’s been seeds planted throughout the series hinting at Szeto’s mysterious past—him having dated Chiang’s second daughter Mandy (Kelly Fu 傅嘉莉), and Master Sun hinting at Uncle False (Chun Wong 秦皇) that he had went through many connections to obtain Madam Koo’s phone number. Szeto may also be the reason why Master Sun speculates William and Ko Bun to be police informants.
In regard to these speculations, Jack Hui said, “Winson Szeto would use any method possible to get to the top. He would absolutely overstep boundaries to achieve that. He doesn’t think it’s fair that a person like Madam Koo—who is both incapable and his subordinate—to be co-leading the undercover operation with him. There are still several weeks left before the show ends. I guarantee you that no one would be able to guess Szeto’s ending! He has a pretty complicated private life. Don’t get too angry at me!”
