This episode took the Brendan and Mitzeee friendship to a new place as she ran to him for help confused and distraught about Mercedes. The scene in the car where Brendan hands Mitzeee over to the police instead of helping her run away from her accused crimes is really powerful. This was the beginning of a huge week for Brendan, Lynsey was murdered just days later.
Christmas 2011 Brendan’s priority was a bit of Fox hunting - getting Warren out of his life for good. This episode begins with Brendan decorating the club tree with a moustachioed fairy on top - he loves his tacky decorations. Britzeee team up to take down Warren and as always their bond is a joy to watch.

Without a doubt, this scene has to go down as one of the most powerful in Hollyoaks history. So good in fact, you’d be forgiven in forgetting you were watching our favourite soap at all, this was something so effective, it was like a scene straight out of a primetime drama. We adore Britzeee - the friendship of two incredible characters works beautifully - so to see them in scenes as raw and as moving as this, was a treat. We were choked up and sickened in equal parts as Brendan talked about the sexual abuse he suffered. We’ll never forget the chilling lines about the eight times table, it made our stomachs churn. A dark and supremely powerful moment with awesome performances and writing which implied so much, leaving our minds to fill in the gaps and making it all the more gut-wrenching.
