The second season of the addictive reality series hit screens last week, with fans waiting days to see how the next stage of the game would play out after watching the first three episodes.
On Wednesday evening the show was back, providing all the twists and turns people have come to expect, but are still taken aback by.
During the second banishment of this season, attentions turned towards events coordinator Ash Bibi, a Traitor, and photographer Brian Davidson, a Faithful.
Despite Brian being a Faithful, his freak-out when being accused of not being a team player saw suspicions aroused even further.
It also came after Brian admitted he would be ‘quite entertaining’ but ‘might crumble under the pressure’.
So when it came down for the rest of the group to make their decision during the tie-break, it was Brian who had enough people questioning his motives.
The final vote came down to chess coach Anthony Mathurin, who thought it was Brian who could not be trusted.
As he stood up to announce to the group he was a Faithful, Brian said: ‘My heart is going mad. Don’t take anything personally. I am gutted to be voted off for being who I am…I am a Faithful.’
Jumping in, host Claudia Winkleman told the group they were ‘doing the Traitors work’ for them.
Those watching on at home couldn’t get enough of the moment, which came after waiting days for the reveal, especially after two of the Traitors had turned on their own.
‘There’s gonna be some words in The Traitors tower tonight,’ Ash McGregor shared on X.
‘This is absolute cinema,’ viewer Steven posted.
‘I knew Brian was gonna get banished, I can’t wait for the awkwardness with Ash,’ William wrote.
This all came after business manager Paul Gorton and British army engineer Harry Clark voted to send fellow Traitor Ash home.
At the time she told the camera: ‘What the hell are you doing? I’m actually really really surprised.’
Paul then explained his reason for doing so, adding: ‘She’s really poorly performed as a Traitor. If you poorly perform, there’s consequences.’
When it came to confronting the others, Ash did not hold back, telling them she was ‘f***ing p***ed off’ and said that ‘early in the game we need to be a team’.
Before tonight’s banishment, the first person to be murdered was Faithful Aubrey Emerson, 67, a retried shop owner from Loughborough.
She was followed by volunteer business mentor Sonja Clarke, 66, a Faithful who was banished.
Then, 21-year-old apprentice economist Kyra Johnson was the next Faithful sent home, after being murdered by the four Traitors.
The Traitors continues tomorrow at 9pm on BBC One.
