Triumph In The Skies 2 - 衝上雲霄2 (ep. 5)
Samuel Tong’s character flaw has always been his lack of 人情味 (sensitivity isn’t quite exactly the word but that’ll do), and it’s more evident here when put against Jayden who is more popular and approachable but flirtatious (I think this is his character flaw), what this scene made me realize was why Sam’s insensitivity wasn’t as pronounced in the first series.
It was because of Vincent.
I’m probably slow on this but I have been so annoyed at Jayden’s character that I have been too focused on seeing them as rivals. Vincent was a lot of like Jayden — or Jayden is a lot like Vincent, actually.
Vincent was the popular one while Sam was the quiet one, Vincent could call Sam out on his stubbornness because they were best friends, but without Vincent smoothing Sam’s edges by his side, Jayden and Sam’s personality come as a more obvious clash. I especially enjoyed watching those moments when Sam couldn’t explain himself. #FrancisNgAppreciation
But yeah, here’s to Vincent (their bromance was the first that made an impression on me and sorta prompted the start of the blog #funfact)
