Based on their last appearance on the show, we wouldn’t be surprised if Saigon and Erica Jean decided to part way and never speak again, but Saigon realizes now that the way he behaved toward Erica, calling her names and implying that she was a bad mother, was pretty terrible. “I made a mistake, and I’m man enough to man up and own up to that,” he says, so he invites her to the studio where he’s working to apologize.
“I know I f—ed up,” he tells her, and he is genuinely upset and sorry for lashing out at her, explaining that he watched his father belittle his mother and he’s not about to go down that road himself.
“I’m shocked, because that is very very big of you,” Erica tells him, but she also confesses that she’s used to this pattern of behavior from him, one minute he’s a nice guy, the next minute he flies off the handle. This is the first step for them to move their relationship forward and Saigon is so thrilled that she forgives him.
