Favorite Episode

My favourite episode used to be Tiffanys death but thats all changed since Grants return to the square. In my opinion  the first, second and third episodes of the Mitchell brothers return are clearly the best(25-28 october 2005). This is what Eastenders is all about, its been nine years since Grant left the square for sunny Rio with daughter Courtney after his wife Tiffanys death. The Mitchells became a firm favourite when they arrived in the early 90s, especially the brothers Grant and Phil who are extremley close but have a habit of sleeping with each others women and trying to shoot and drown each other. Phil was framed for armed robbery by dirty Den and Ian Beale last year and in this episode has been rescued by brother Grant as he persuades in Grant Mitchell style the security guard to change his story so Phil is dropped of all charges. They return late Monday night just in the nick of time to rescue their mother Peggy from one of Johnny Allens men set out to hurt her. They have returned for one reason and thats to get their younger sister Sam out of prison, and they will do anything to get her out. They pay Johnny Allen a visit which scares  Johnny half to death, they then move onto the Vic to do the same to Chrisse not knowing that Sharon lives there with new husband Dennis. Grant kicks down the door while he sends Phil back to the house to fetch a crwobar. Chrissie awakens at the sudden noise and goes down to investigate. She bumps into Grant who throws her easily onto a sofa and explains that she will get whats coming to her, he´s interupted by Dennis which dosent cause a problem for Grant who just easily picks him up and rams hin across the room into the piano. Phil comes running in when he hears Chrissie screaming. Grant raises a barstool above Dennis who is lying helplessly on the floor only to be caught dead in his tracks by Sharon turning on the lights. The brothers then learn that Sharon and Dennis are married which they cant get their heads round because the last they heard Sharon and Dennis were siblings. They return home to a happy Peggy and a surprised Pat. The next morning Phil decides to find Ian and get revenge, he scares Ian, enough for him to go and cry to Johnny that he dosent want to buy the pub anymore, but Johnnys not having any of it. Phi continues to give Ian grief while Grant causes mayhem elsewhere. These episodes are classics, the writing, the performances and the chemistry between Grant and Phil is priceless, they bring it all back and it seems like nothing has changed, the humor is at its best from Grants comments to Phils facial expressions. There is so much more but there wont be enough pages left.
