EPISODE 35:
Michael came back to 'Lik Tin' but Tim still doesn't trust him and Keung tries to talk him out of it. soon later, Tim and Michael run into an argument and they start argueing about whose fault it was about the death of Keung's parents. Keung overhead this and becamse extremely upset and angry and he vowed to call the police and ran away. Michael chased after Keung and eventually Michael got on a car to chase after. He soon got the urge to kill Keung by running him over but soon changed his mind when he remembered the words of Tim; that he'd never forgive him if her did anything to Keung. Therefore Michale's car crashed onto a lamp post and it started a fire. Keung tried to decide whether to leave Michael to die or to rescue him but in the end decided to rescue him. After Michael was saved from the explosion of the car (caused by the fire), Michael mischieviously and cunningly opens his eyes then closes them when Keung tried to protect him from the fire.

EPISODE 36
Keung brings Michael back to the hospital after the explosion of his car and Michael was safely rescued. Keung decided not to tell the police about them killing his parents but swears to them that he doesn't want to see Michael or Tim ever again. Later on, Michael and Tim have arguments again (about loyalty) and in the end Michael wants to leave Lik Tin again, alongside with Keung (who doesnt want to see either of them again).

EPISODE 37
Both Michael and Keung resign from 'Lik Tin' leaving only Tim. Therefore Tim decides to also not work in 'Lik Tin' anymore (wants to help his father sell lunch food). This happened after Tim's family moved back to their old home (the one in the beginning of the first epidodes). However, Tim meets Joe and he later on changed his mind to co-operate with Joe to run 'Lik Tin'. Meanwhile Michael is now working for Hing's real father so now they work for opposing sides. Hing one day doesn't go back home and Barry becomes suspicious about her reason why she didn't come home. She said that she went to see an old friend from her old school and they got so into their talking that it was already sunrise before she realised. However Barry's father told him that in fact she went to see Tim and stayed with him in a park until sunrise. Therefore Barry got alittle worried and wanted to discuss about it with Hing. During his dinner with Hing, he had a sudden pain in his stomach and went to the doctors, finding that it was due to his infectionous intestine. The doctor said he needed and operation straight away. During the operation, Hing was in the hospital waiting and found out that the plane Tim was on which went to San Francisco had an accident and Hing got extremely scared and upset so she cried. However she learnt later that Tim didn't go on that flight so she stopped crying. Barry woke up after the operation finding her abit weary and saw her dried tears and thought that she was crying for himself. Thus he forgot about the whole event with Tim and Hing that night, and thought that Hing actually loved him the most.

EPISODE 38
A reporter (former classmate of Tim, Michael and Keung) kept bothering them about the fire incident that killed Keung's parents (he had to write an article about it even thought it happened a year before). They all wouldn't say anything but Keung got really mad at the reporter after reading the headlines of the magazine that said that Michael was the hero in the incident. The reporter started getting suspicious about who actually started the fire but the 3 still strongly remain neutral. One night, Sandy (Hing's friend) saw Barry in a bar with another woman so she went over to say hi. However Barry asked Sandy not to tell Hing that she saw him. Sandy did tell Hing in the end and she got really worried. Hing then wanted to discuss with Barry but later on Barry decided that he wanted to have a divorce because he found out that Hing that time during his operation was crying for Tim, and not himself thus he knew that Hing still liked Tim. He also said that he found out he liked his old girlfriend better (the other woman that night). Hing and Barry discussed about the divorce and Hing left the room upset and crying.

EPISODE 39
It turns out that Barry divorced Hing because he knew Hing still liked Tim so Barry used the his ex girlfriend as an excuse (he actually didn't have any affairs and he still liked Hing). The reporter also had just found the adress to another victim of the fire (a reporter- he was actually the objective of the fire). His mother showed the reporter the camera the man had with him during the fire and it still had a roll of film inside it. The reporter developed it and found that they were pictures of the whole situation when Michael was killing Keung's mother. THe reporter tried to threaten Michael to check if he was the real killer by asking to meet him to find out about what the 'anonymous threatener' knew. However, Michael found out that the reporter was following him and figured that he knew something so he killed him. However, he found that the reporter was actually going to meet Keung that night for a drink and he feared that Keung also knew about Keung's mother's murder. He went to the bar to meet him but Keung ended up leaving to find the reporter and see if he was at home. However her wasn't (the reporter was dead by then adn his body was hidden in some woods). Keung thought something was wrong so he broke through the doorway and found noone. However he glanced around the room finding that there was an article the reporter was writing (the negatives of the photos were there too)and it was about Michael killing Keung's mother. Keung got extremely mad and he called Tim, complaining to him that it was his fault. But Tim had no idea what Keung was talking about so Tim decided to go over to the reporters house to meet him. But Michael, who was following Keung, burst into the house trying to kill Keung and he saw that Keung really did know about the scenario thus he asked Keung for the negatives. Keung wouldn't budge so he knocked him unconscious and in the end found some negatives and burnt them to destroy the evidence. But Keung woke up during that and he actually hid the remaining negatives in a fish tank so he got it and took his car to escape. Mciahel found out and he chased him but Keung lost control of his car on the road and it crashed prducing a fire. Michael saw this, just took the negatives to burn and didn't bother saving Keung but TIm just arrives and seeing that, Michael leaves. Tim sees Keung in the car adn saves him before the car exploded. Keung told Tim about the whole thing whilst Michael went back home, lying that Keung and Tim in turn beat him (he says that the reporter made a fake picture of him killing Keung's mother and they believed the reporter thus resulting in the fight). Both Michael and Keung go to the hospital and the police tried to blame on Keung for everything (Michael was in the hospital first). Tim got so mad that he admitted that both himself and Michael started the fire so the police kept both of them for investigation and Michale as usual lied whilst Tim tried to convince the police that Michael was the bad guy.

EPISODE 40
Michael finally got released after the 48 hour investigation and Tim and Keung got really mad that he left innocently. Tim went to find Michael later, when Michael was with some reporters at the time. Tim attacked Michael and tried to spill out all Michael's bad deeds to the reporters however Tim the pushed Michael out onto the road and a truck ran over Michaels leg. Michael was immediately brought to the hospital and Michael then had to become a cripple for the rest of his life. The government decided to sue Tim for attacking Michael and Hing became Tim's lawyer whilst Barry became Michael's lawyer. A big pause from the whole scenario then begins as Hing one day sees Janet (Barry's so-called new lover) with her fiance and not Barry. She finds out that Barry lied to her the whole time about dating Janet again. Barry told Hing that it was because he knew she still liked Tim thus he told her to go for it. HIng also asked Barry to help Tim in the trial but Barry said he can't because he says lwyers should help their clients only. The day of the trial finally came and even Keung went to see it (although he knew Tim didn't directly kill his parents but Keung was still alittle mad at Tim). Barry kind of helped Tim abit by saying to the judge that Tim didn't have the intent to kill Michael. However Tim sill lost but was only sent to jail for a few months because of Barry's words. Tim actually wanted to go to jail since he felt guilty about Keung's parents' deaths but Michael was extremely mad about that fact that Tim only stays in jail for a few months and he swears that he will one day break both of Tim's legs with his own hands.

EPISODE 41
Michael eventually left the hospital and went back to work to co-operate with Joe's brother. One day, Hing'mother and Joe's father (married now) went to Taiwan and was stopped in the Taiwan airport for bribery. Joes father didn't do it but it was actually Joe's brother who did it but purposely put the blame on him. During that period, Joe's family's caompany had a huge problem. They had a meeting about acompany they owned and whether they should sell it or not but the father (boss) wasn't there so Joe and his brothers had to decide according to which side owned more shares of the company. A few days before, Michael wanted more shares of the company so he asked Tina to help lie for buying shares with a false excuse. Tina agreed to help and asked Joe if she can get the shares and Joe agreed thinking nothing bad would happen. This meant that Michaels side would get 51% whilst Joe's side would get 49% of the company. Michael's side agreed to sell the company whilst the others didn't meaning that Michael's side won (51% of the company). Joe got upset and started thinking about Tina getting the shares. He called Tina to ask but she was asleep and her mum picked up the phone instead. Her mum told her how disastrous the news were and she quickly realised that Michael lied to her. She got mad and on the day of the company's 'celebration', Tina went to the party and got so mad that she slapped Michael. Joe saw that and he found out that she lied to him so he proposed to Tina that they shouldn't see each other anymore. The trial of Joe's father in Taiwan soon began too.

EPISODE 42
Michael found out that Joe's brother used his wife to seduce a man so that he could prospone the time needed for the payment of their debts. Michael got a detective to take pictures of her with the man. He showed the pictures to the wife and threatened that he'd tell unless the man shortened the payment time com. The man agreed and Joe's brother had to get money to pay the debt back thus he had to sell alot of the shares out to get cash. Michael spread some bad rumours about the company so that the price of the shares would fall, making it affordable for them to buy to become the majority of hte shareholder. This let him become the president of the company, taking over the authority of Joe's brother. Michael then fired Joe's brother to make his own brother the vice president and also told him about his wife's affair. They had a fight in the end and the wife left him.

However the wife of the triad leader saw this and felt pity for her (although her husband died) and decided to give the information to her resulting in Joe's father setting free. However both Tina and Jo are kidnapped leaving the family extremely concerned. Michael suspects that Tim was definitely the one who told ICAC to investigate their company, leading a large loss of money for him thus he hired someone to kill Tim.

Helen got a call from a man claiming he got evidence on Yan not being hte murderer. Therefore Helen went to see the man and the man turned out to have the forensics report on Michael's autopsy. It said that Michael died not from stabbing but from allergy to a medicine (medicine that Keung gave to Michael after he was found in his house full of slashes and cuts from the attack, when Michael was still a bad person). It is found that the report was not shown to the police as someone wanted Yan killed (Joe's brother, to get rid of evidence of Michael's murder). Helen agreed to buy the report for $ 30 million.
