With Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄 II> airing on July 15, spoilers for the drama have been leaked to the media. The story follows relationship arcs of the pilot and airline crew, adding elements of predestined love and even bringing back the Triangel doll, the Guardian of Love, which was featured in the original 2003 series. The sequel will feature more love angst amidst the complex relationships.

Multiple Love Triangles

In Triumph in the Skies, the main romantic storyline was the love triangle between Sam, Bell (Flora Chan 陳慧珊), and Vincent (Joe Ma 馬德鐘). After many heartbreaking episodes, Bell eventually chose Vincent. The second half of the series featured Sam (Francis Ng 吳鎮宇) developing feelings for Zoe (Myolie Wu 胡杏兒), and marries her despite Zoe’s weak heart condition.

The sequel picks up after Sam  and Zoe are married, but Zoe soon passes away due to her worsening health. Soon after, Sam falls in love with Holly (Fala Chen 陳法拉) but because of his personality, he remains strict towards her at work. Holly also likes Sam, but still has ex-boyfriend Jayden (Chilam Cheung 張智霖) on her mind.

Coincidental moments include Sam walking in on Jayden and Holly kissing, as well as accidentally seeing Isaac (Ron Ng 吳卓羲) and Summer (Myolie Wu)  meeting on the roof.

In the sequel, trainee pilots Isaac and Roy (Kenneth Ma 馬國明) have now become pilots. Roy develops feelings for a divorced older woman, Heather (Elena Kong 江美儀).

Netizens noticed that both Elena and Kenneth went from having a mother-son relationship in Silver Spoon Sterling Shackles <名媛望族> to having a couple relationship in Triumph in the Skies II and thought this was rather odd. Roy will also have a relationship with Pink (Rebecca Zhu 朱晨麗), whom Kenneth had costarred with in Silver Spoon Sterling Shackles as well. Rebecca, being a newcomer received a lot of criticism for her poor performance in Silver Spoon Sterling Shackles, but she may fare better in Triumph in the Skies 2 with more experience.

    Id say Myolie’s choice of haircut for this series is more scary. You’d need to be pretty gorgeous to pull that off. And she’s not even that pretty to begin with.

      I’m not sure any man – or woman can pull off that half bald look no matter how good-looking. They almost have matching hair cuts, except his bangs are swept back. Honestly, I blame the stylist on the show. Whoever thought this style was cute needs to be fired!

        Gotta give Myolie credit for all the hairstyles she’s willing to try. Some fadans have the same hair over and over again in every single series.

        I don’t like that haircut,especially on a woman. However, I agree with Shrimpboat that it Myolie deserves credit for being brave enough to try out all of the various hairstyles that many other actresses would not dare to try.

    This series would fail if it focuses too much on relationship. TVB reuses relationship plots so there’s nothing special. However, showing the audience all the “inside” stuff about working in an airline would capture a lot of curiosity and interest.

      I agree and I like romance and all, but not too much in any series because it gets boring and redundant… I guess TVB is truly out of ideas.

    I can’t wait for the series as I was the biggest fan of part 1. I always dreamed that TVB would shoot a sequel and years later they have! I’m so excited!! Not so excited of the love stories and change of cast, however I can’t wait to see Zoe and Sam together again. Although their relationship is only short lived, at least there will be some sort of closure for me in terms of reliving their love story *sigh*

    Men in uniforms, flying planes…very man 🙂 hehehe

    I really wish they hadn’t cast Fala Chen in the series. She’s pretty but for some reason really difficult to watch. I guess there really isn’t anyone left at TVB to play the part.

      Agreed! Fala is boring. And she can look so snobbish sometimes with her expression.

    Why is Elena Kong seems stuck in roles of unhappy older woman in lust with younger man who can never commit?
