Episode 06: Cheung Yat Hong 張一康 (Nathan Ngai)“You still have to experience life and death many more times… No matter how sad you feel right now, when you pass away, we will be reunited but Yue Jai will feel sad. This is a cycle, but that also means you have existed in the world… One day, we will all be reunited.”
-Yat Hong (Nathan Ngai) appears in Yat Kin Tau’s (Kenneth Ma) dream when he takes the bus with their mother. At this time, Yat Kin Tau’s wife, Yue Jai (Tavia Yeung) had just aborted their baby because she has to undergo treatment for her tumor. Yat Hong tells Yat Kin Tau that life and death is a continuous cycle. When a close one passes away, someone will be sad, but when someone passes away, someone else will be sad as well. This cycle just repeats over and over again. But what is important is that at the end, they will all be reunited.
-Yue Jai (Tavia Yeung) and Mei Suet’s (Mandy Wong) grandma is admitted to the hospital and they find that she had IGg4. While sitting downstairs, she sees Lokman (Lawrence Ng) and asks him what that disease is. Seeing that she has been mistreating her family, Lokman scares her saying the disease can lead to other diseases in the body and can cause death. But, actually, he is just stating the truth. One will eventually pass away at one point or another. This forces the grandma to rethink her actions and she stops scolding at her husband and daughter.
-Lokman (Lawrence Ng) thinks Doctor Heung (Tracy Chu) is busy dating another doctor, resulting in her apartment to go on fire. When he finds out that she is looking after the son of her missing boyfriend, Lokman continues speculating that she is neglecting her son and yells at her for not being a good mother. At the cafe, David (Jerry Koo Ming Wah) reminds Lokman that he should not be the one judging her because he has not been a responsible father either.
Episode 09: Doctor Heung 向芊兒 (Tracy Chu)“As a doctor, there must be many people that we cannot cure, many patients that we cannot save. But, as a doctor, we must believe that we can save every one of them, until the very end. This is what we believe in as doctors.”
-Doctor Heung’s (Tracy Chu) mother is in the hospital due to digestion problems and her father happens to see her stepson in the bathroom. Father and daughter start an argument. Doctor Heung’s father scolds at her that she is not even able to look after herself, nevertheless another kid. She stands strong, arguing back that as a doctor, she holds the responsibility to look after all patients, until the very end. This also shows us her character and personality: fighting back to what she sees is right.
-Yue Jai’s (Tavia Yeung) tumor did not shrink much from radiology. She knows that one day, her lower body might not be moved because of her illness. She is at the cafe, consulted by Lokman (Lawrence Ng). She explains to him that as a doctor, she only wants to cure them with her own hands. But, Lokman tells her that being a pathologist is still helping patients, although they are not ‘using their hands’. She seems to reconsider her occupation and intentions as a doctor.
This week focused a bit more on Doctor Heung and Lokman. It is true to say that there are pros and cons of added characters. On the one hand, we get to see more storylines develop, but on the other hand, they take screen time away from other characters. I don’t mind seeing Doctor Heung and Lokman, because I already feel that Lokman is extra caring towards her and would like to see how their storyline develops.
