Kung Fu - Alliance

After exhausting all other options to find Mia (Vanessa Yao), Nicky (Olivia Liang) reaches out to Zhilan (Yvonne Chapman) for help. Despite their distrust of each other, the pair work good together, and her addition is the last piece necessary to find Russel Tan (Kee Chan). Unfortunately, despite discovering several facets of Russell Tan's plan and the location where he plans to ring the bell, our heroes aren't able to stop events as Tan uses Mia's blood, the body of his own son, and the hammer and bell to create an earthquake across the city.

The show does overplay its hand towards the end as it never feels like Nicky will prevent Tan from ringing the bell, although the twist of Tan stealing Kerwin's (Ludi Lin) body does work well. The penultimate episode of the show's Second Season sees our villain triumphant having, apparently, opened a door to another realm by following the ancient ritual. Now can Nicky and Zhilan prevent Tan from reaching immortality as their loved ones deal with the aftershocks of his crazed plan that may have well left the city in ruins?
