This was interesting for me to watch because my brother is an Erik. Their ability to keep all their lies going (and keeping them straight) is an amazing accomplishment at the very least. That they leave utter waste and sadness and destruction in their wake is something I know well. His poor ex-wife and kids, the crap he put them through. That being said, until my brother straight out told me that 90% of EVERYTHING he has EVER said to me was a lie, I believed the more mundane stuff, and know that there is NO WAY the mother would have seen any signs. 90% of everything. That's when the light finally went on and now I have absolutely no contact with him whatsoever. Just like the ex-wife and kids don't either. The whole thing is heartbreaking for all of us, but we're all happier for it. Just because they're family makes it harder to do and the guilt is unbelievable, but it is absolutely necessary.
