“Line Walker” Ending Will Depend on Audience Vote
TVB dramas received a lot of criticism for its poor endings in recent years. In some cases, alternate endings were created to please the angry viewers. The producer of Line Walker <使徒行者>, Man Wai Hung (文偉鴻), announced that the audience can vote for the ending they would like to see.
Happily Ever After or Star-Crossed Lovers?
Man Wai Hung revealed that two endings for Line Walker were filmed. While one is the happily-ever after scenario that everyone enjoys, the other one is more tragic.
In the opening scene in the first episode, Raymond Lam (林峯) and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) were attacked by a large mob with weapons. Raymond and Charmaine’s fates will depend on whether viewers want to see the pair end up together or be forever separated. A week from now, the viewers will be given a chance to vote on which ending they would like to see.
“Line Walker” Gains Good Feedback
In its fourth week of broadcast, Line Walker averaged 29 ratings points and peaked at 33 points for the week ending September 19. Ratings increased by two points compared to the prior week.
Satisfied with Line Walker‘s reception, Michael Miu (苗僑偉) treated Samantha Ko (高海寧), Elena Kong (江美儀), and Oscar Leung (梁烈唯) to dinner. Michael said, “Each week’s episodes generate new discussion topics and the ratings have been going up. In the last few years, people rarely surround me anymore but nowadays everyone keeps asking who is the undercover cop. Of course, I won’t tell.” Michael added that he personally prefers tragic endings as they leave the audience with a more memorable impression.
Aside from regular viewers, Chow Yun Fat (周潤發) and Wong Jing (王晶) are also fans of the show and eagerly anticipate each new episode. Fat Gor asked if Michael is in fact the mole in the police force, while Wong Jing complimented Charmaine’s acting.
