Series: The Brothers / Season 5 Episode 4

In the fourth episode of the season Brian is in the throes of a full on breakdown, over lunch with Merroney he loses it in a major way and he finally realises that he needs some serious professional help and agrees to a stay in a psychiatric hospital. Ted and Jenny are enjoying their business trip/weekend away in Switzlerand (with some actual filming done in Switzerland too!) even though the crisis with Brian is causing chaos back at home.

A chance for a bit of a holiday for Ted and Jen then as part of Merroney’s plans to expand even further into Europe with a proposed depot in Switzerland. The trip does allow Jen and Ted to get back together properly and realise that enough is enough and that they should finally get married. It’s a mighty episode actually as the family can’t quite understand what is happening to Brian and the board frantic at what is happening to their managing director.
