|Szeto Man Mo finally married Lam Chor Yin properly, ep 19|
Ep 15: MMCY tracked down the black magic guy and found his hideout. MM managed to cancel out the black magic thus SM was cured. However, they didn't found anyone in the hideout. Unbeknown to them, the black magic master was killed already by his teacher. Not the Evil Master, but Sky Heart, the 1st disciple (played by the actor who played as Wai Tin Ho in CLH actually). Cured, SM then concocted a plan to make 2nd uncle n cousin Tsung admitted their rotten plan in front of the village elders, such that the two pigs were exiled (despite Madam Yip's mercy). Madam Yip then invited SM to stay at the Yip Mansion. Big Mole arrived and joined MMCY acting as a go-between for SM and Madam. MM himself, he returned his jade to CY, asking her to keep it cos it is a very important item for both of them.
|Man Mo trying to win his prospective-in-law's support, ep 16|
|CY made herself a human shield to protect MM, ep 17|
|... A Man was livid to see his wife sacrificing herself for him (ep 17)|
But Yin was dead. SM said they still had a chance to return her to life. MM had to catch her spirit at midnight, put the animus grasshopper inside a bottle and safeguard it against spirit catchers. MM did it, but after daybreak, there was a mini earthquake such that he broke the bottle...
|This is seriously too close... (ep 18)|
|... to MB home for me... really too close... (ep 18)|
|He loved her so much... (ep 18)|
|Although her spirit asked him to forget her...(ep 18)|
|He kept fighting for her... (ep 18)|
|MM trying to make CY remember her past, ep 19|
|Although she couldn't remember anything, she felt safe with A Man, ep 19|
Then, since MM still wanted to marry CY, they got married again. There, SM in the form of Tse attacked again, such that CY remembered everything, thus we're all happy again. This episode also has a cute scene where CY asked if MM was hiding something from her. MM was reluctant to answer, but he then said he had a mistress. CY looked sad, but then MM laughed cos he was just joking. CY hit MM playfully and MM pretended to cry. They then hugged. CY then asked MM to please be honest with her, cos only then she could help him. It was a totally sweet scene. Not saccharine... just normal sweet. I feel like Michael and Barbara were not really acting here (or in many scenes). The way MM laughed when CY found out he was joking was a real laughter.
|MM joked about a non-existent mistress, ep 19|
|...so he deserved a beating from his lovely wife...|
|...but she still sensed something wrong...|
|...despite her husband's reassurance (ep 19)|
They seemingly were happy now but for the relapse MM had several times. He still tried to hide it from CY who of course could sense something was wrong. Eventually, Auntie Wu saw the problem and told CY about it.
|A Man's disheveled look during relapse (rather sexy I 'd say), ep 20|
|Supreme Master had to kill A Man to save him, ep 20|
That night, SM chained MM to prevent him going ballistic during relapse. Yet the relapse trigger was too strong that MM broke the chain and attacked SM. SM finally killed MM and asked CY to safeguard his body and capture his spirit. MM visited in the form of a butterfly and CY caught it and put it in a jar. However, when she opened the door, she tripped and the jar broke as well.
|I'm so happy to find this old couple... (ep 20)|
Then we saw an old lady trying to catch butterflies. Failing to do that, the old lady coughed. An old man tapped her shoulder and told her that they were old now, so she shouldn't catch butterflies again. The old lady turned out to be CY, who told the old MM that the butterflies reminded her of him. Old MM laughed and said she still remembered that accident years ago. They laughed. MM told CY that their grandson Siu Kau was waiting for them. They then walked away in peace...
Aaaand... that's it, folks. Fearless Duo, another charming series of Michael Miu and Barbara Yung. It has a different tone from Chor Lau Heung, but hey at least we also have a happy ending here. It's totally recommended if you're a Michael Miu, Barbara Yung, or MB fan, and with 20 episodes only, you only need 2-3 days to watch them all. Just a whole weekend, that's it...
