“Triumph in the Skies 2” Upcoming Spoilers: Sam’s Tearful Farewell to Zoe

Entering its fifth week of broadcast, TVB’s 43-episode Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄2> has finally hit the halfway mark. In the past four weeks, Chilam Cheung’s (張智霖) playful portrayal of the witty pilot Jayden Cool won many viewers, but starting this week, Francis Ng’s (吳鎮宇) Captain Sam Tong will finally have his time to shine, showing off his acting king abilities!

In the beginning of Triumph in the Skies 2, the viewers learn that Sam’s wife Zoe (Myolie Wu 胡杏兒), whom he married in the first series, had died from chronic heart disease. Sam resigns his position as head pilot in Hong Kong and moves to England, where he lives a calm life and quietly mourns for his beloved. Sam’s family and friends convince him to return to Hong Kong to fly, and believing that he has truly let go of his past, he joins Skylette Airlines.

In the past twenty episodes, Sam was convinced that the burden in his heart was relieved, but in an upcoming episode, we learn that Sam has never really let go of Zoe. Like Flora Chan’s (陳慧珊) Belle in the original series ten years ago, Sam does something we rarely see him do – he cries.

When Sam was ordered to lead a flight to Kaohsiung, Taiwan, he immediately turns down the job. Jayden complains about the special treatment Sam has been receiving from superiors, and in the end, Sam has no choice but to fly. Due to engine repair, Sam is forced to stay in Kaohsiung overnight.

Holiday (Fala Chen 陳法拉), Sam’s roommate and pilot cadet, notices Sam’s odd behavior and confronts him. After coming across the same hospital where Zoe passed away years ago, Sam breaks down in front of Holiday.

In his state of distress, Sam imagines seeing Zoe for the last time, holding her hand before she bids her last goodbye to him at the Kaohsuing International Airport. When Sam lets go of her hand, the knot in his heart is also untied.

Isaac Begins Dating Josie

Meanwhile, Sam’s younger brother Isaac (Ron Ng 吳卓羲) flies to Paris, France to spend a few days with his buddy Roy (Kenneth Ma 馬國明), who is heartbroken after breaking up with his two girlfriends. Isaac’s good friend and Zoe’s doppelganger, Summer Ha, also flies to Paris to spend time with him.

Though Isaac and Summer have feelings for each other, Isaac believes that his brother will not approve of the relationship, and avoids forming close bonds with her. Realizing that Isaac is not in love with her, Zoe match-makes Isaac with good friend Josie Kiu (Kelly Fu 傅嘉莉), who has had a crush on Isaac.

Holiday Breaks Up with Jayden

After their France getaway, Holiday and Jayden begin dating. However, Holiday discovers that not only is she not jealous of Jayden’s popularity with the girls, she also never truly loved Jayden. When Sam confessed his feelings about Zoe to Holiday, she comes to realize that she too has never let go of her deceased boyfriend, Daniel. She then returns to Hong Kong and breaks up with Jayden.

        Agree. Coffee girl shouldn’t even exist in this series. Just Issac struggling with himself about Summer looking like Zoe and worrying about his brother would have been enough…oh, and passing the tests to advance in his career.

          the coffee girl’s story is a bit like copying Zoe’s, with the illness. i also think her character shouldnt exist in the series.

          i think script writers should not try to complicate EVERYONE’S relationship.

          remember in the first series Samuel, Ron and Michelle’s relationship? although its the classical two boys after one girl, one rich and one was average. at least that was the level complexity and it didnt involve health, surrogate mother etc…

      I’m excited for episode 23 since it’s supposed to be really emotional scenes with Francis.

      I really liked the Isaac and Summer (along with Roy) scenes. It had a lot of sweet moments. I’m just hoping that Isaac and Josie won’t last too long!

      The general story of this article is correct, but a lot of the little details of the story are wrong, so I wonder if the spoilers are completely accurate?

        Sorry, but this article did a really poor job at summarizing the next few episodes.  You guys are better off reading the full episode summaries in TVB Magazine (because it looks like this article merely lifted a few details from those summaries and meshed them together).

          Yeah, I actually notice a lot of articles have story details wrong. I guess that’s no different from the rest of the entertainment news where they obviously spin it to tell a more scandalous story.

          How do you get the TVB Magazine? Do you live in Hong Kong? Are they available overseas?

        • llwy12 replied:

          @advo: Totally hear ya…that’s the unfortunate part….so many things get lost in translation nowadays, it’s almost a detriment not to be able to read something in its original language, the original way it was written. That’s actually one reason why I worked so hard to learn Chinese (reading, writing, speaking it, etc.)…so I can read / watch / hear stuff in its original language and not have to worry about the message being lost via translation (though of course, the message can still be lost in its original language too…but at least some of the ‘layers’ are removed…).

          @sandcherry: Depends where you live, as every place is different. I live in the U.S., so it’s obviously harder to get TVB Magazine unless you live in the Chinese communities (i.e. Chinatown)…though nowadays, there are also very few actual stores even in the Chinese communities that carry the magazine. (It’s not like in HK where you can walk to the local newspaper/magazine stand and buy it.) I was fortunate enough to find a local shop that actually carried the magazine so I get it mailed to me every week (but then again, I’ve been a long time subscriber, like since the 90s, so I’m sure that relationship plays a part in the shop’s willingness to make sure arrangements)…

          A few years back, TVB actually revamped their magazine and split it out into 2 publications — TVB Magazine and TVB Zone (TVB Zone is the ‘TV Guide’ portion of the magazine where all the summaries and new series intros are housed). Earlier this year (well, sort of end of last year), they created an app for TVB Zone, so that magazine is actually available for free now — no subscription required…all you need to do is search for “TVB Zone” in the App Store or Google Play (depending on whether you have Iphone or Android) and download the app…the magazine is published every Monday, so new content is automatically updated weekly.

          Hope this helps….

          Thanks for your information.

          You are great. You make an effort to learn, read, and write Chinese. It is pretty hard to do it. Were you born in the States?

          Your subscription must be quite expensive. Are they airmailed from Hong Kong?

          We used to buy Ming Pao and other magazines years ago directly shipped (or airmailed) from Hong Kong, but they are very expensive now. One magazine will cost easily over CAD10.00

          @Funn: Unfortunately, TVB magazine is still not available for subscription online, which completely baffles me given how practically every magazine out there has an online presence.  I actually subscribe to Mingpao magazine as well (also long time subscriber) and that one has been available online for years already (used to get the hard copy version but started to run out of space in my house so glad they went online…lol).

          @sandcherry: Definitely the cost is higher here because the magazine is shipped from HK and we have to pay shipping fee (plus cost of mailing, which I feel is absolutely cheaper than the gas I would need to drive to the shop to pick up the magazines). Considering it costs 10HKD to buy the magazine in HK (which is actually dirt cheap), we definitely pay double that price (if not more) over here. Mingpao on the other hand is cheaper (cuz online and no shipping costs)….personally, I think it’s better to subscribe to another magazine in addition to TVB magazine, since we all know that TVB’s content will be limited to only it’s own artists/series whereas you get a bigger picture of the entire HK entertainment industry with other magazines (like Mingpao for example).

          The shop orders it for me and it comes weekly and I only pay about $3.50 U.S. for it which isn’t bad. Though I know it may be different for others since that’s the only magazine I’m subscribed to.

          I always prefer reading the material on paper rather than online, same with textbooks besides it’s the TVB zone that’s online not the entire TVB Weekly.

          I am cheap ……… don’t want to pay for subscription fees. I just rely on JayneStar for all those HK media news.

          I am so glad that I have found Jayne’s website ……. I can keep myself fairly up-to-date now and I can even chat with her readers.

          Thanks, Jayne.

          @sandcherry: Sorry, forgot to answer your question….I was born in HK, but immigrated to the U.S. with my family when I was a baby, so pretty much grew up here and lived here my entire life. English was essentially my first language, but since I started watching chinese dramas at such a young age, learning Chinese was something I had always been passionate about. Sure, it’s definitely hard work and the ‘learning’ part never really ends, but the sense of accomplishment you feel after doing something as simple as reading a Chinese book from cover to cover is very satisfying and rewarding… 🙂

          @Teecee: That’s actually about the same price I pay for my TVB magazine subscription as well (luckily the shop gives me a break on the mailing fees due to being a long time customer). Mingpao isn’t that expensive either….getting the 6 month or 1 year subscription is equivalent to paying about $2 per issue, which is dirt cheap considering all the content we get (American magazines sell for $4 to $5 average…and that’s for the ‘not as famous’ magazines too…lol).

          And as much as I like the convenience of online subscriptions (especially for more dated stuff like weekly or monthly magazines), I actually prefer hard copy stuff as well (especially when it comes to books)…sure, it’s old school, but to me, nothing beats holding a book in your hand and physically flipping through the pages (I loved libraries and bookstores as a kid and still do even now….in fact, bookstore is like a candy store to me and is always a ‘must visit’ on my trips back to HK…yes, I know I’m weird…lol). If it weren’t for space issues at home, I probably would opt for physical instead of online magazine subscriptions….

          You are great. You practically learned Chinese all by yourself. Chinese is a very difficult language, and we have to learn it word by word.

          I can speak (Cantonese), read, and write Chinese. However, since I haven’t really written much Chinese here, I forget how to write many of the characters. I can still read them though.

          Since you like reading a lot, you should not have any problems in learning new languages. You can also pick up some Chinese words in TVB drama series. Make sure you know how to distinguish the good ones from the bad ones. Your parents must be very proud of you.

      I really want to watch this but I don’t want to be disappointed by it. I absolutely loved the original Triumph in the Skies; could anyone tell me how this one compares? Is it worth watching or should I just let myself be content with the first series?

      The biggest issue I have with Triumph in the Skies 2 (which has contributed towards putting me off watching it) is the ridiculousness that is Summer apparently looking completely identical to Zoe. I heard this and I thought ‘No. Just no.’
      So cheesy and cliched.

        Same here. I’ve been putting off watching for the same reason and didn’t want to waste time watching 43 episodes.
        Therefore, I’m just reading episode synopsis and summaries to get the gist of it. Will only start watching after it finish airing.

        This is why I’ve always been opposed to doing sequels — especially TVB sequels (since they have a bad track record when it comes to sequels). Luckily, I was never a fan of the first Triumph to begin with, so I’m able to watch the sequel and remain relatively neutral….if I were a fan of the original though, I would be pissed big time at the way they did the sequel (that’s just me though…other people might not react the same way…).

          I never liked TITS that much in the first place, so I don’t expect much from its sequel. I did not like Belle’s character. She already had a good husband and still had a crush on Sam Tong. I felt sorry for her husband, Vincent Ling (portrayed by Joe Ma).

          I did not remember much about Zoe. She was just a young girl to me in TITS.

        Because this is a sequel then yes you will be very disappointed by it, it can be a decent series if it wasn’t attached to the first installment. There are so many unnecessary characters and love triangles that relates nothing to the original flight theme element. It’s just another romance series with a huge cast, you know how it is.

        No no. It is 90% lookalike. Watch the 1st series and then the sequel and you know, they’re absolutely correct.

        Watch it for Chilam and Francis Ng. They deserve at least a watch. They were masterful and if either doesn’t win the so called Best Actor at TVB drama awards, you know for sure the entire thing is rigged. The series can lose, the themesong can lose but these 2 must win. Their controlled performances put to shame many many actors out there.

        The first series is MUCH MUCH better than this one. I find the plot too loose in the sequel, too many little bits and pieces and characters that don’t fit well together. I also don’t like Holiday. I don’t mind other characters that Fala played in the past but not this time. Holiday is not really likeable IMO. Francis and Chilam both done a great job though. I am only watching the series because of them.
