Literally just finished watching the remaining half hour of Taiwan Long Juan Feng.
More thoughts from me! (Amazingly I can’t stop blogging about this show)
RECAP – The Penultimate episode #370 (or something..okay, I lost count!)
Usually the second last ep are the good eps where the show still manages to start tying things up, yet leaves some traces of the DNA of the actual show we follow. TW LJF has none of this.
For almost the entire run of the series, we learn that this Huang Family has been trying to fucking build this MRT or some shit, though nothing ever gets built, yet two thousand contracts has been signed by corporates within these 300 over eps (in the midst of all the drug rapes and gun pointing)
So, what do we actually get from this all crap-tastic ep? A fucking will that seemed to be written by Grandpa Huang whose ang mor name was probably Nostradamus.Why? He predicted the bloody future , thats why.
The will probably rendered the entire series redundant. All the fighting, raping, maiming, drugging, more raping, more scheming, etc. For Nothing!
The writers basically retcon the entire series!
What the will said* (my version..well..its still 70% there lah.)
“my name is blah blah blah, i done many bad things in my life…and decided to atone for my mistake by…LETTING MR A DO SO AND SO BECAUSE I LET HIM DOWN AND ALTHOUGH I LET HIM HANDLE THE BUSINESS
I SHALL STILL BE THE LEGAL OWNER OF SAID BUSINESS
SO IN THE EVENT OF MY DESCENDANTS GROWING UP AND HAVE TO FIGHT FOR THIS POTENTIAL RAILWAY LINE 30 YEARS INTO THE FUTURE
THEY WILL STILL OWN THE PIECE OF LAND THEY WILL POTENTIALLY SPEND 361 EPISODE FIGHTING OVER
(and to make sure they will not find this will)
i shall not tell anyone i wrote this letter until at the point of episode 340 i will leak news that i may possibly have left this secret will that nobody knows so that they can spend 20 eps searching for it and then the will will undo everything we thought happened for the 320 eps before it.
and this secret will be held by this person who won’t even appear in the show.
ugh. i die. thank you.”

Stay tuned for the Finale of the show. Subtitle : Why 20 pistols can’t stop a running woman jumping off the goddamn roof.
