In The Christmas Party Barbara reveals that Johnny had an affair and thats the real reason she is home from Canada; Ronnie tells his parents that he wants to go to a special rehabilitation centre and everyone is gearing up for the annual Christmas party.
The final episode of The Brothers and it has quite the air of melancholy about it, Barabara decides to go back to Canada; David reveals that all he wants in life is to find another girl like Jill (his wife who died in a car accident); Jenny and Ted realise that their marriage is floundering through lack of work on both sides. Merroney for once lets his hair down and gets a bit inbriated but not before Brian gives him a few home truths about flying out to Barbados to be with April. Jane and Brian though do have something to look forward to when they agree to get married.
A very fitting final episode actually with much of the episode taking place at the Christmas Party and a great scene featuring all the board (and Mary) gathered together at the end of the evening and Mary telling Merroney just what she thinks of him. There is a sense of closure about proceeding too with the final scene featuring Jenny, Ted, David and Brian…
Ted: Well here we go, Europe, The Middle East, where do we go next.
Paul: Oh we never stop
