The show uncovers Mitchell’s family history, discovering Colleen, Mitchell’s birth mother and Brain, his birth father. They had decided to give baby Mitchell up as Colleen was only 17 when she had him and besides, Brian was Colleen’s uncle. 

Mitchell claims he holds no grudge as his mother took the only option she had available. The show further discovered that Colleen had given another baby up before Mitchell. The two brothers, now reunited, wish to find their eldest sibling.
