Meanwhile, Mainland criminal Jiang Xin (Guo Xiaodong), an expert driver, has been summoned to Hong Kong by his boss, Tan Yi (Li Guangjie), to extract his colleague, Huang Zhong (Li Haitao), from prison. Jiang Xin lets himself be chased and arrested by Chan Cheung on a highway one day; taken to prison, he arranges a jailbreak in which he and Huang Zhong escape by car. After the police lose them, Chan Cheung picks up their trail in Kwun Tung but is tricked by Jiang Xin and trapped in a narrow alleyway. The two Mainland criminals get away. Later, Lo Fung, seeing Chan Cheung's frustration at being bested by Jiang Xin, takes a major decision.
