Darryl 'Brax' Braxton - Steve Peacocke

Recommended Posts

Brilliant acting by Steve Peacocke in the past few days. I can feel Brax's pain just watching him on-screen.

I doubt he'll ever fully recover from this tragedy. Losing Charlie was bad enough, but losing the baby brother that he adored from birth will absolutely kill him inside.

I fear for Brax's mental health in the future if he's unable to move on from this.

I found todays episode interesting. Brax being all cool and quiet. But I have a feeling that he isn't quiet he is just not able to deal and shut down his feelings. He maybe thinks that he doesn't deserve grief and closure because his life- the one he always wanted to Casey away from- finally caught up with the only person whom he never wanted involved. He will go after Jake and kill him even if Ricky tells him she's pregnant and then confess because he mitt think he doesn't deserve happiness and a family after what happened. Especially when he remembers the morning on the beach with Casey seeing him finally truly happy and content with his life. Poor Brax. But as always wonderfully portrayed by Steve- the way he said:"My brother" to Kyle- simply perfect.

He is holding in his feelings and being strong and keeping busy and quiet and cut off. Its what he does and its fitting but I hope he properly breaks down as we only saw that once and that was when Casey died and he was dragged away.

I wonder if Ricky's request to Casey to keep Brax out of what was going on will ever come out in the wash. I'd almost rather it didn't as it'd cause friction between them. But ow. I wonder if Ricky will remember her request and reflect on it now in the light of all this. I think it was a totally reasonable request but Brax would be devastated if he knew.

I don't think she'll mention it but if she does and it causes friction between her and Brax I wouldn't really care because I never understood how Brax let her back in his life after what she did to his family. And her pleading she was played by her brother was ridiculous because she was an adult and could have told Brax at any time what was going on. So even if she came around pretty well I don't really like her character (despite the fact that Bonnie plays her brilliant) and I would have preferred for Brax to kick her out after he found out what she did. But as it was mentioned in another post Brax acting out of character started with Adam's revenge stuff. Or maybe it's true that love makes you blind.

I have found it more ridicoulus that the Braxtons forgave Kyle after what he did to Casey. Even if it seems Brax has never seen him as a brother and has treated him quite differently from the two others. Still, it is very strange to take in someone who almost killed your brother in jealousy. Because that was really what we saw. Kyle tortured him for days, and wanted Casey to die. It wasn't a breakdown (like former characters had), but only an act out of jealousy.

I think it was really out of character for Brax to forgive him that easily. He has always been portrayed like a revenge guy. It would have been more in character if Brax wanted to kill Kyle instead.

Ricky had been killed by her own brother if she hadn't done what he told her. And it was probably difficult for her to understand that Adam wasn't right about Brax, she had to learn the truth about Brax herself. But I would have liked her better if she was with someone else, to be honest. I did like her and Brax the first time around, but after how he treated her when he got prisoned for the murder, they lost the magic they had. He treated her like dirt. And earlier on it felt like they understood each other because they were from the same background. Now after Brax got realeased from prison I think that the deeper understanding between them is gone.

I agree totally with you jodlebirger about Brax taking Kyle in. That was ridiculous because Kyle left Casey in the desert to die. I don't know why he felt obliged to help him after he took the stand in court and helped Casey out . He did nothing special just telling the truth. So I didn't get that either and I was surprised that Casey took that so well as he found out Kyle lived in the house. But as he said later on.... 'How come whenever something bad happens to me the person responsible gets to live in my house`

But also the stuff with Ricky was hard to take in because I doubt that she confessed because she wanted to help Casey. She did it because she knew that if she didn't do that, Brax would cut her off if he found out later (even if they were together). And she didn't care that something could happen to Casey while in prison or if Heath lost his daughter forever. She only cared about saving Brax and how she could be together with him. I get that she wanted to help her brother at first but after she found out he was wrong about Brax she could have warned Brax without Adam to know. And if Brax left Adam to die why mess with Casey and Heath family? I think she agreed with that because she didn't want Brax to get physically hurt. He was her only concern. And I highly doubt Adam would have killed her, even at the end he didn't do it despite having the opportunity. So I really don't have much sympathy for Ricky.

Brax brought all the bad into Casey life and will have to live with results of revenge.Jake was his mistake, but Ricky and Kyle were gambles. He is too soft at times and trusting. He wants control and to be looked up to and that is a killer
