Valerie hires Matt for help in representation when her revenge-seeking mother presses murder charges against her for the late Mr. Malone's "suicide".

Meanwhile, Sophie begins to market herself for acting work... in the porno industry. Brandon returns from his stay in Washington D.C. and reveals that he accepted a job offer there at a prestigious newspaper company while Kelly reveals to him about her own personal change in opening her new boutique store, called 'Now Wear This'. Also, Noah takes a lonely Valerie on a tour of bad memories between both of them over the suicide of their unscrupulous, white-collared, criminal fathers. Written by Anonymous

David Silver: Goodbye Brandon. Nine years, it's a long time for a group to hang out. High school, college, the real world. Death, drugs, depression, raging hormones, puberty... You name it, we've suffered through it all. We still are. Some people have moved away, and others have joined. It hasn't really mattered though, the reason being we know we can depend on each other. We know we always will.

Brandon Leaves (#9.5)
20 May 2016 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A sad episode in which as the title suggests Brandon leaves. It is sad to see the main character that was here from the start to go. In the first seasons pretty much all episodes were around him. I have trouble imagining that this show will be as good without him, even if he was not my favorite character he was the part of the main essence of the show. No wonder it didn't last long after he was out.

His good byes with Kelly were pretty well done. As well as him thinking to stay. This is so Brandon wanting to give up opportunity to be with the people he loves. But luckily he was told to go and finally pursue his dream.
