The police soon discover that the first victim was killed after her psychic predicted the dangerous criminal activity of her boyfriend who is Li Phat Lung's boss. After rescuing the psychic, who fights back, killing the boyfriend, the police learn from her that the man was in fact, not the mastermind behind the criminal acts. Li Phat Lung was. Yuen appears in several scenes, including a shoot-out with the police, where he is shot before his character is arrested. Season 2 of the series wrapped up in October.
