And I'm not sure he made it worse. Emma is so panicked right now because she is on the verge of believing.

Can I join the party too? I was already an August fan before this ep, and now I'm even more drawn to and invested in the character.

This is why I don't get it that people think he's unrepentant and selfish. He clearly states that he broke a promise and has tried to make good on it but he's too late, and is not the man his father had hoped he'd be. Then when Marco said, "But you kept your promise. You realised your mistake and you tried to fix it. That's important. If I had a son, that would be enough for me." It must have taken ALL of August's willpower to not break down and hug him right then. Was a heartwrenching scene for me.

He is now realising the implications of his actions, (or rather his inaction), and the implications are kinda huge, so he's getting desperate to find a way to make it right. Making a poor decision that snowballs out of control and then is hard to rectify isn't an unusual thing, it happens to perfectly well meaning people every single day, and that doesn't automatically make them evil.
