The Other Truth 真相 Episode Summary and Review: Episode 9

Now that Mavis has taken up a big case, there's more Tavia screentime~ And of course, many things and changes happen between the leads (:

Of course the next day, Barrister Gill scolds Chima for being impulse for attempting to hit Iris and told him that whatever he has done so far, like getting Chima in the spotlight and everything is his method of doing things. Chima says that he really wants to get out to take care of his dying grandma, and Gill agreed to help. Of course, at court, Mavis was really determined to keep him under guard and succeeded because of the fact that Chima went to harass Iris.

Over here, we have new characters, Cheung Yuk-ying (Yvonne Ho) and Fung Kit-lai (Angelina Lo) and apparently they were chosen to be the jury for a case. Kit-lai lost her way, Yuk-ying helped her and they quickly became friends. Apparently, they are chosen not based on their willingness to do it, but on random. And if they are shortlisted, they would need to go to court. Then subsequently, the accused has the authority to reject 5 times the people they feel would not help them in their case (in other words, display biasness). Finally, 7 of them were chosen, other than Yuk-ying and Kit-lai, there are Law Sum (Joseph Lee), So Wai-kuen (Lau Kong), Hui Kwok-ching (Lo Ho-kai), Leo (Vin Choi), Bobo (Angel Chiang). They chose Law Sum to be their team leader because of his analytical and leadership skills. There are many steps and procedures to follow as a jury, and it is actually not as simple as we thought after all. I find this really amazing, I mean, we have never seen things from a Jury point of view before! And, this is what made me like the drama more than I already did. (:

Finally, the trial for the case started. Iris was the first summoned witness, and from her point of view of the story, it went like.. First, Iris was having a birthday party at a bar, then she got harassed by a male fan and Chima happened to be around and saved her. Chima took the chance and gave her a birthday gift. Next, Iris was drinking and she saw Chima going into the pub too, and she didn't know why he would be in there because the place can only be entered based on invitation. Iris found Chima suspicious, but ignored him because she thought she is just another male fan, and on the account that he saved her just now. Third, Iris got pretty drunk, she was supposed to be sent home by an assistant, but he was equally drunk. Forth, Chima came by, and decided to bring Iris home. Iris found it weird that he knew where she lived. Finally, he went into her house with her, and raped her while she was drunk. Damn. Then the boyfriend Tony (Francis Huynh) came back while she and Chima were arguing, and they called the police. I'm not sure, Chima looks innocent, but.. why would she accuse him of rape at the risk of her status? She's a public figure after-all. Who's speaking the truth, who is not?

After the first session, we see a little back story of the jury (Wai-kuen and Kwok-ching's). Wai-kuen has a pregnant daughter, while Kwok-ching is busy trying to save his seat in the company. Kit-lai went home, and here, Wai King-sang (Stephen Kwok) appears, and he was complaining how hard his life was when Kit-lai went for her jury work. King-sang wanted to get some information about the case, but Kit-lai insists that such things should not be leaked if not they will be sued for discriminating the court. Then, it turns out that the son Kit-lai has been talking about is actually James! James' father came out of the bathroom covered with cloth, he told James to go up to the flat owner above to rush him to get the toilet fixed because there's always water dripping in the toilet. But when James went up, being a very soft hearted person he is, he actually offered to give the owner more money after trying to get sympathy, but of course, stopped by King-sang in time before he got cheated. Back home he scolded James for being too easily misled, and said that he is the first lawyer to be such a failure etc etc. In addition, Kit-lai has always been giving allowance to James despite his age, James felt really bad but he still accepted it because he doesn't have much savings. James told Kit-lai the prosecutor of the case she is involved in is Mavis and is his friend. Kit-lai had praises for her and immediately thought that she is his girlfriend. HAHAHA typical mothers! I like their chemistry as mother and son too! :D

Case #10: Remember the time when Michael hit someone at the bar? Michael is officially charged. Because Mavis is still angry at Michael and refused to help him, James and Keith were the witness and were not convenient to help him. Wallace was like,"Oh? Your wife is a barrister too?" and Keith was like,"Yah, Mavis Hong!" And the look on Wallace's face (because he didn't know Mavis had a husband and he is actually Michael). Keith added,"Ex-wife.." He immediately told Michael he would take up his case, and the stare Keith gave Wallace was really annoying (HAHA). Of course, Keith could tell Wallace intentions of accepting Michael's case, trying to get more information about Mavis. Wallace scolds Keith for saying it as if he is trying to seduce somebody's wife, and expresses that he is truly concerned for Michael. Keith told Wallace to be hardworking and start taking notes on Mavis, like how she likes to do gym, like to eat potato chips (DAMN, Keith understands Mavis so well omgggggg)

Back to the raping case, now it's Chima's turn to say his side of the story, and god, it's totally different. (and I was really disturbed here.) What Chima said was.. First, Iris was having a birthday party at a bar, then she got harassed by a male fan and Chima happened to be around and saved her. Chima took the chance and gave her a birthday gift. Next, Iris invited Chima to her birthday party and he got in. And while Chima was alone, Iris kept giving her seductive stares, and Chima went to her with 2 glasses of wine. Third, Iris got pretty drunk, she was supposed to be sent home by an assistant, but he was equally drunk. Forth, Chima came by, and decided to bring Iris home (and she seduced him) Fifth, he went into her house with her, he was about to leave until Iris actually closed the door and told him that she wants to know how it feels to be forced upon on. And they had sex. Finally, Iris took Chima's wallet and wanted to take money out, and told him that there's no free lunch. Chima refused because she is his goddess and he doesn't wish to see her be such a loose woman who goes around sleeping for money. Then Tony came back while she and Chima were arguing, Iris accused him for raping her and they called the police. Of course, when Chima said his point of view, he was very upset that his goddess is actually such a person. I already said, Iris is not as innocent as we think!

When Kit-lai was on her way home, she saw an old lady and an owner at the fruits store arguing. What happened was, the old lady said that he gave him a 500 dollar note, but the owner insisted that he didn't take the 500 note, he even showed her his cash box and there was really no 500 dollar note around. He told her that he would help her find the note and chased her away. But when the old lady turned her back around, the owner went back to his own stall to continue her business. Kit-lai was troubled by that and consulted James about it. James said that one shouldn't tell things just purely based on looks. The old lady might look innocent, but things might not be as simple as thought. James told Kit-lai to analyse properly, and follow her heart.

Back in the court, the judge told the jury not to be too affected by the mass media that were reporting the news (because they might be biased), and of course, Mavis was determined to get Chima jailed based on the evidence. The judge also added that in order for Chima to be proven guilty, the jury would need to have votes of at least 5 vs 2. And back in the jury room, it was obvious the younger ones think that Iris is not as innocent as she looks, while Kwok-ching seems to be in a rush of time so he decided to follow the crowd and voted for "guilty" (what the hell right I know), when it reached Kit-lai's turn, she actually said that she feels that Chima is innocent. Because, she is very confused by all the statements and she really cannot tell who is actually telling the truth.

Who, is actually telling the truth?

The Other Truth 真相 Episode Summary and Review: Episode 8

And so.. we get new cases!

The episode starts with everyone looking sad, and Man-wai turns up not knowing anything and judging from their expressions she thought they had lost the case. But in actual fact, they had won (Wing-choi couldn't take it and started laughing). As they said, thanks to Keith everyone is fine, and of course, Wallace doesn't lose out and mentioned that he put in a lot of hard work too~!

Back in Wallace's company, they had a celebration party and An-gor says that Helen and Wing-fu have been caught by the police and they would receive their trial soon. Kai-hong announces that Wallace would be aiming for the barrister license. Of which, Wallace himself has no intention to. Kai-hong explains that it's really good to have a barrister around after going through this ordeal. And in order no to disappoint his father, we could see that Wallace was forcing his smile and lied that he has intention to get a barrister license. Everyone "disapproved" and Danny told Wallace to rethink because he would need to shut the company down if he did so, and this would cause everyone in the company to be out of job. Of course, the way they said it was so joking-ly, and Keith's expressions were win. HAHA.

After that in Keith's office, An-gor and him decided to make fun of Wallace. Keith passed Clayton's court robes to him and said a bunch of things that a barrister should do, Wallace got annoyed and told them to stop playing around. Keith said,"Your dad doesn't seem to be playing around, he is serious about it." Wallace says he currently doesn't have intentions to get a barrister license, of which Keith said that if he were to get one, he would have already gotten one long ago.

Just then, Mavis enters the room to discuss some financial matters with Keith, saw Wallace and told him that she has heard about his intention to switch to a barrister. Wallace looked so happy by the way, haha. After that Mavis patted Wallace's shoulders and said,"Well, I think you can do it." Wallace was of course elated and he said,"I'm going to put on a good show, for her." Keith couldn't believe that Wallace could be affected so greatly over a sentence. An-gor told him to re-think because if he pursues his career as a barrister, everyone in the company would be jobless. Then Keith adds,"Your friend views lust over friends."

Then they finished their "meeting" and left Keith's room, and smelt something that stank really badly (for Wallace and Keith's case that is). Turns out that Wai-tung came up with fermented beancurd and is looking for James. (That pissed Keith off really badly because he stepped on a beancurd that was lying around). James came back, and actually Wai-tung came by to tell James that he wants to increase the amount to claim from the government for wrongly putting him into jail. Of course, Wai-tung's requests get more and more ridiculous, James couldn't take it anymore and reprimanded him, and told him not to be too greedy. And.. they fell out.

Keith heard the quarrel, and went with James for a drink. James felt sad for yelling at Wai-tung, because they were friends after-all and his intention was to pretend to be busy and "chase" Wai-tung away, but now he lost a friend just because of something like that. The aircon in the bar was dripping water and Keith became a victim, he went to the toilet while James switched seats. He saw Michael trying to chat with a girl who rejected him. Moments later, Michael got into a fight with a guy (who is a boyfriend of the girl Michael was trying to chat with), and James witnessed the incident. Keith came back and asked what happened, and James said that he would be the witness and help the other party. Keith said that Michael is actually Mavis' ex-husband. I wonder if James really saw it because he only saw how Michael chatted with the girl but didn't actually see how the fight started..

Of course, Michael called Mavis in the middle of the night and said that he was caught by the police, and James apologized to Mavis he didn't know Michael is the ex and went ahead to be the witness.. and it seems that Mavis doesn't bother at all after finding out that the injured had suffered serious injuries. She even told James that it is right he stand up to be the witness. When Mavis left, James told Keith that her ex-husband is unlucky to have met him. HAHA. Mavis was really angry and reprimanded Michael for going out to drink again. He explains that he only started fighting because he felt humiliated by the other party.

Mavis offered to give Keith and James a ride home and told them to wait because Michael came out and pestered her. She doesn't want to help him anymore because it was his fault for drinking and she is angry that he still refuses to quit drinking even after divorce, and they quarreled really badly and halfway Keith quietly told James that he wants to leave for a taxi and said that if not they were going to drink and didn't have a car they wouldn't need a ride (very responsible. now, everyone who drinks needs to be like this okay.) In addition, if they stayed they don't even know how long more would they be quarreling. James said just be nice and wait. HAHA so Keith told James he can be the good guy, while he leaves. But before Keith could leave, Mavis was already coming their way and offered to bring them home.

In the car, Keith started saying how Mavis should not blame Michael for going to drink, it's not as if he went to kill someone. Mavis retorted by saying that a lot of criminal cases were caused by drinking. So Keith tried to be funny and said,"Ya, liver failure, blood loss etc etc were all caused by drinking." Mavis just feels that, causing trouble after drinking is simply not right. But Keith said that Michael said that the girl fell down on her own, it wasn't even his fault, but Mavis begged to differ. They quarreled (and almost rushed through the red traffic light). Then to stop the quarrel James went to turn up the volume of the radio (not sure if it's intentional or not, he said he wanted to tune to another channel.) By the way, Keith keeps eating a pack of mint, I wonder what is the point of that. I have seen it appearing a few times and I still couldn't get it. Initially I thought he just liked to eat sweets before a case (sweets make your brain think better). I actually enjoy it when Mavis and Keith quarrel *here you go again*.

Case #9 (big case): Next we get a scene of Iris Wong (Aimee Chan) getting... raped by Chima (Bitto). She looked really happy though? Sorry, I was really disturbed by this scene by the way. Then, the next day it made it to the headlines. Turns out that she is an up and coming celebrity and to protect her privacy the image was silhouetted. They were gossiping about it in the office and trying to guess who was the victim and it turns out that Mavis has gotten the case to be the prosecutor. Mavis say there is enough information to charge Chima, because there were drugs found in Iris' drink, even though Chima didn't admit to putting any form of drugs. Of course, they are not allowed to get near to both parties, and they could only fight the case based on the information the police give to ensure a fair trial.

After that, Big C was feeling troubled in the gantry because she felt bored and had no idea how to approach the case with the little little information they had. She envied Norman for being able to go around and learn about things while all she did is just stare at the files in the office. Norman said that Keith always say that they have to find evidence on their own because the evidence would not come flying to them. Keith came by and Big C asked Keith that when he was a police, was it very satisfying to find evidence. And Keith said yes, but it's different when he became a barrister as he has to be careful about many things, and with lesser info it might not be a bad thing as there is more space for imagination. After that, Keith offered to treat Big C to curry and off they went.

When they were there, Norman asked,"So are we going to pose as police or reporter today?" and Big C was like,"There's a need for roleplay?!" Keith approached an Indian called Mr. Gahal at a restaurant and it turns out that he and Keith are friends, Gahal brought them up to Chima's residence and told them about him. It turns out that Chima had a bad relationship with Iris' mother and constantly quarreled, almost getting into a fight. Gahal said that Chima had to start working since he was really young in order to rear his family, so he worked freelance. Subsequently they found out from Gahal's employee that Chima has always been taking pictures and following Iris when she returns home.

Big C was so happy to have collected so many information and learnt so much from Keith. While she was expressing her excitement to Norman, Mavis came back and heard everything. Big C knows that she is in big trouble for going over the limit of finding evidence on her own and gave her a big lecture. She told her that if she likes to find evidence so much, go to a police school instead, and just then Keith came in and explained to Mavis that he only brought her out to see the world, and treated her to some curry. It just so happened (ya right) that Gahal knew Chima. Mavis told Big C to switch mentor and Big C was so upset, said that it's her fault, do not quarrel anymore but Mavis continued to reprimand Keith that his method is wrong and he would lead her astray if she learns anything from her. Keith doesn't feel that he is wrong at all, and left the room. OH.

*i forgot to take screenshots* but anyway, Chima met Iris at the police station (by chance), he got angry and attacked her, and said things like,"Why did you malign me!"

The Other Truth 真相 Episode Summary and Review: Episode 7

The bribery case at its peak! And... Mavis continues to be a calafare in this episode..

Because Wallace have been unable to produce evidence to prove their innocence, and the other party's statements have no suspicions, they lost the case and were proven guilty. But Kai-hong and Wing-choi are really innocent, they applied for bail and appeal. Thank goodness it was approved. Turns out that, Helen have bribed Yu-fu to give him a solo concert if he is willing to help them. EVIL MUCH!!!!! I don't know, I just disliked that scene of the father and daughter drinking wine. Yoyo just looks too.... biatchy for me to take this scene in.

Then reality sets in. Wallace and Man-wai went to the tour agency, and realised that the workers there seem to have a total change of attitude. They talked to the co-owner of the agency (with Kai-hong being the biggest shareholder) and he said he has lost all the trust on Kai-hong. Wallace decides to take over his father's job in the agency, and meanwhile he has to search for a reason to appeal. With so many things to do, Man-wai was afraid he might break down (could tell Wallace is trying really hard to force a smile on his face T.T). But Wallace says that now his dad has met into trouble, it's right that he helps, in addition he feels guilty for having lost the case.

Then back at home, while Wallace and Man-wai try their best to cheer Kai-hong up, it couldn't work because he was still depressed how he got maligned for something he really didn't do. Wallace apologizes for being too over-confident and causing a bigger trouble than they already had. In addition, because Wallace is a civil lawyer, not a barrister, there is no way he can fight the case on his father's behalf. Therefore, Man-wai suggests to call Clayton back, so that his father would feel more at ease too.

On the other hand, things seem to be going well for James. The fellow barristers were gossiping on how strict Judge Wong is, but when they saw her, she actually smiled at James (It was because of Wai-tung's case she had an impression of him). Things went well, and the big barrister actually told James they would have a lot of chance to work together (= big money!). Of course, James starts to take taxi instead of bus to work, met Mavis at the lift and they could chat really well (because Mavis actually knew and paid attention about the case he fought).

Back in the office, Keith saw Mavis and James chatting happily with each other on the way in and asked James,"Why are you so close to her?!" And James said,"As fellow barristers we should chat more with one another" and Keith smiled (at this point of time, it's just Keith being an annoying colleague HAHA) Thereafter, James said that he wants to increase Small C's salary, so that he could use her for the administrative work too. And he said to install an aircon for his office now that he has money.

James goes to find Wai-tung (he has won the case by the way) and saw that Wai-tung was singing praises for James. One of the neighbors asked what kind of compensation did Wai-tung get, and he said,"I got my dignity back", they told Wai-tung that he could get the money back from the government because they jailed him for nothing, and Wai-tung, looking so highly of James, asked him to help out with the case. Of course, from James' face, he doesn't seem willing to do so.

Back to the bribery case, Clayton really came back from his vacation in Taiwan to help out. Kai-hong admit that he felt really sad that he lost the case due to Wallace's overconfidence in handling this matter. Clayton told him to give Wallace time and another chance. The next day, many of them gathered in Wallace's office, and they started to analyze the files, and try to find a reason for appeal because if they do not find a reason within 14 days, the appeal would automatically fail.

After going through so much, they still had no clue about anything. Ultimately they all got tired and slept, while Wallace and Keith went to the gantry for a coffee break. Wallace confesses to Keith his regret of being too overly confident, of not going for a barrister license, and he feels down because after re-reading all the files so many times, they could not find any loopholes at all. And Wallace is worried that Clayton might not be able to win the case because afterall, Clayton's strength is in criminal cases, appeal is never something he is good at. I thought Raymond portrayed the emotions really well, as expected of someone who has won an award haha. Just then, Clayton, who has got attracted by the smell of the coffee, enters the room. And poured 2 packs of sugar into his cup, despite having said that he only wanted to put half a pack. Wallace looks at Keith with a face of worry (yes, that kind of worry that everyone gets when they grow old), but Keith has his suspicions, but he chose to believe that his mentor could be tired which was why he had forgotten about the sugar and even joked about how Wallace forgets to zip his pants up when he is done at the washroom.

Finally, when Norman was using his right hand to hold the lunchbox and the left hand to hold the money, Keith finally thought of a loophole (which none of them could understand initially other than Norman - as expected of a disciple, and Wallace - expected of the best friend). Helen said that, she held the fake result with her left hand, then while she was handed the real result, she swapped them away, then she passed the result to Yu-fu with her left hand. There would be a loophole, because the result on the left hand was already swapped, so it's the real result! Both of them were lying, because there was no fake result in the first place! And because they didn't match their statements initially, thus they were not able to realize that their statement had the loopholes. However, Wallace says that they are not allowed to use the statements to reason, but Keith says that there is a case because no one doubted their statements. Now that there are loopholes, there is a case of doubt, which means there is a case to fight for. Finally, everyone understood, only left Clayton, who was still confused by the left-right hand thing. And of course, this increase Wallace's worries of Clayton being able to fight the case or not. Darn, Keith is really cool I like this character!!

On the other hand, James goes to the gym after realizing the importance of keeping fit in order to impress people with good looks. He meets Mavis there, who treats gym-ing as a form of hobby. Once again, Keith sees the both of them together, thought that the both of them has an unusual relationship and Keith says the same old sentence again,"Are you very familiar with her?" Ruco's facial expressions in this part made me lol.

It was night-time and Keith offers to give the muddled Clayton a ride (it's really amazing, the acting, you can tell he is really muddled and lost) but he chose to take a taxi home. He looked so weak and confused and of course, Wallace got worried again because Clayton has not been himself for the past few meetings. Keith continues to feel that Clayton is probably tired and told Wallace not to think too much about it. After that, someone called, and said that Clayton forgot where he is living (uh-oh).

The next day, Clayton tells Kai-hong that he has entrusted the case to Keith, because he has Alzheimer disease, thus it would not be convenient for him to take up the case. While being upset and despite Kai-hong having his doubts for Keith, Wallace (along with Danny who had his doubts too) is relieved now that Keith is the one taking over the case.

On the other hand, Clayton goes back to the office to pack, and James saw him while being at it. They started reciting poems (d'aw) together, and Clayton lets out the room for James to shift in. Then, Keith decides to take over Clayton's room, and let James have his room, because that is his teacher's room after all he has the mission to continue with his teacher's legacy. James didn't mind because he has a room already. However he complains to Keith that he should have told him earlier then he didn't have to spend money to build an aircon in the storeroom. Keith laughs and joked,"Well, the documents need to have some aircon too!"

HAHA. Now that this case is coming to an end.. what cases would come next? And would Kai-hong and Wing-choi win the case?

The Other Truth 真相 Episode Summary and Review: Episode 6

Episode 6! Where Mavis makes no appearance in the episode.

Case #9: Previously we stopped at the part where the ICAC goes to Kai-hong's office and suspected him for bribery with Ma Wing-choi. He was taken to court with Wing-choi, and they both insists that they are innocent. Apparently, there are witnesses who said they were involved in the bribery, and that is Helen (Yoyo Chen), which makes it harder for them to be proved innocent unless they can prove that Helen is lying. What happened was, Kai-hong helped Wing-choi clinch a deal on the same day, and it really happened that during the lucky draw, he won the watch, but when they were caught by the police, Wing-fu insisted that it is a scam. Apparently, Wing-fu is not happy how he didn't get much inheritance from their late mother, and now he wants to take revenge and snatch the money back.

Meanwhile James is working hard to help Wai-tung find a reason to appeal his case. (Poor dude, he gets no aircon like normal barristers..) Then, a guy from the high court went, and pushed him to get a reason for appeal within 14 days *which is due soon*, if not he would not be able to get a chance to fight the case. In addition, James is not getting paid for all the miscellaneous fees accumulated in a court case. James started complaining about the room being too hot and such, Keith ran away immediately upon hearing that. What a friend! There after, James went to the photocopying room and saw Small C, he told Small C to let him use once she is done. Theoretically, a barrister should ask the secretary to do the paperwork, but seeing that she has to wait on both Keith and Mavis, and including the fact that he has not much contribution to her pay, he told her to let him use the printer once she is done. Poor James! Can't even work properly as a barrister.

James eats his cup noodles in the gantry, Big C comes by and advised him to get a disciple so that he does not need to do everything on his own, and he could lighten his load too. James says that he doesn't have the "quality" to accept disciples. He starts saying how his life is always decided by his parents etc, he decided to be a lawyer because he wants to prove that as long as he takes initiative, he can do things that he want to do. Then it seemed as though they were paying attention, and James was talking so deeply into it, until he turned his back and everyone is gone. James adds,"That's right, who would want to listen to me talk." I feel kinda sad for this character, so neglected and inferior!

James doesn't dare get the court fees from Wai-tung, and Chow Chow doesn't understand why. James explains that it's because he was the one who suggested for Wai-tung to fight the case, and they thought it was free so they accepted it. Now, he doesn't dare to say it out now that they have gone through so much.. Finally, Chow Chow says that there is a need to pay the fees to the couple, Wai-tung's wife got so angry and said that that it's impossible for them to pay the court fees. Wai-tung said that he would rather mortgage his house etc than live with a criminal background. Despite the fact that he only went to jail for a few days, but he thinks it's a downright insult to him.

Then back in the chamber, Keith brings good news to James (who was burying his head over Wai-tung's case), saying that a very famous barrister has a case, and he needs help from other barristers too, so James was one of them. James was really happy about this news and he wanted to hug Keith, who shoved him away. HAHAHA. He was all like,"My good brother!" and Keith was like,"No I didn't help at all I'm just here to deliver the news." I think Keith really wanted to help but he's just too shy to admit it. Of course the next day, James went for the court and messed up massively. Astrid Chan makes her appearance here as a judge too.

Back at the chamber again, James was complaining to Keith that if he cannot find a reason for appeal within 2 days, there would be no case to fight for. Keith offers his office to James as he had to go overseas for a meeting, and James was so grateful and he was all like,"My good brother!" and Keith shoved him away. Keith even opened a drawer which was filled with tidbits for James (which Keith said are expiring goods he just want James to help clear the food) and James was really touched. James swear to properly find a reason in order not to disappoint Keith's goodwill. I was pretty amused by this part, Keith obviously wants to help but he was afraid of James touchy touchy hands. HAHA! They have pretty good chemistry, Ruco and Louis! ^^

James finally found the reason to appeal, he goes to Wai-tung and told him there's a case to fight. And while Wai-tung was all happy, his wife comes and chased James away as they have no money to fight the case. James feel that Wai-tung is doing the right thing but his wife feels that James is up to no good (for money). Of course, the couple quarreled and got into a fight, and injured James in the process.

Wai-tung's wife felt very guilty for hurting James, went to the chamber to apologize and told James that she is willing to support the husband, on the condition that it's only going to cost them 50k HKD. However when his wife entered James' office, she realized that James might not be a good barrister after all and told James that she doesn't want to go to court anymore as James himself is not sure whether they would win either, and told James to persuade Wai-tung to drop this incident and let it be. If it was you, would you spend so much just to clear your name? Or you rather save the money and be burdened with the crime that you have never committed?

James looks Wai-tung up, and tells him to give up on the case in order to prevent the family from splitting up... Wai-tung refuses to give up and told James that he won't give up, because it's not a matter of money, it's a matter of being jailed for something he has never done. Because after he got jailed he asked himself,"Why did I get jailed for? What have I done wrong? Which is why I got so agitated about it. I want to tell everyone, that I have been wrongly accused. Yes, we might lose if we appeal, but we will definitely lose if we don't even take the bet to appeal. You have worked so hard and you have never given up, why give up now? We take charge of our own fate." After hearing what Wai-tung said, James decided to help him fight the case as per usual.

Back to Kai-hong & Wing-choi's case, Wallace and An-gor went to follow Wing-fu for clues and found out that Helen and Wing-fu has a closer relationship than everyone thought. Initially they thought that Helen was Wing-fu's mistress, but it turned out that they are actually father and daughter (illegitimate). Wallace and An-gor goes to talk to Helen's mother, and persuaded her to go to court and disclose their relationship. She agreed as she wants Helen to mend her ways. After they were done, Danny calls and told Wallace that Yu-fu (another host on that charity show that day) was back, and he is willing to help them out.

James looks up for Keith for advice as his case is going to be judged the next day. (and all that brotherly awesome-ness happens again) Keith told James that if he wants to do well, he should use his "heart" to say the things he wishes to express. They spent the whole night doing it under James' request.

Finally the case, James goes to check who is the judge in charge and found out that it's Wong Shui-hing (Astrid Chan). She is known for being strict and scary in court, Chow-chow expresses his empathy but could not do anything about it. In the courtroom, James stutter a little and got the displeasure of Shui-hing, after that he decided to adopt Keith's recommendation of using his "heart" to fight the case. He starts to reason out why Wai-tung should be proved innocent, and indeed, Shui-hing actually thinks that his reasoning is valid. Even though we do not know the results of the judgment, but they are confident of winning. I'm glad how we are gradually seeing James' spontaneity and confidence :D I feel that Louis has done a really good job portraying this, as expected of our TVB award winning supporting actor. GO GO GO!

Back to the bribery case, the trial has started and all Helen said were lies, like how she swapped the winning tickets under the instructions of Wing-choi etc etc. Wallace starts saying that Helen is actually Wing-fu's illegitimate daughter, and Helen was actually helping Wing-fu out. And her residence is at a high class place, which is suspicious as it does not fit her financial status at all. But as Wallace does not have evidence, Helen denied their relationship. During the break, Helen's mother called and said that she doesn't want to go to court and accuse her daughter because she can't bear to do so. With their trump card lost, Wallace says not to be disheartened as they still have Yu-fu as their witness. Anyway, just a random thought, I'm amazed at how everyone always say how pretty Yoyo Chen is but yet I don't find her pretty at all...

However, things didn't go well for them, Yu-fu started saying that this is really a case of bribery (the cause of his sudden change in testimony is unknown) Kai-hong got angry and started screaming in court, and threw his shoe at Yu-fu. Of course which, he got taken out of court and charged with the crime of ostracizing the court. Wallace has a face of helpless-ness and he told Kai-Hong that this case, would be a tough battle. Honestly, I don't really enjoy watching this case, but it's good to see Wallace fighting it out at court!
