Black Ink Crew Episode Two: Mistakes And Goodbyes

After an explosive season premiere, it’s time for Black Ink Crew to adjust to L.A.C. (Life After Puma) and decide who on staff is considered an asset or a liability. It also might be a good idea to pay your bills on time? (Auto-pay can help! Just a suggestion.)

Captain Dutchess runs a tight ship, but when it’s not exactly hers to run, there’s bound to be conflict.

Boss man Ceaser is feeling the pressure at every turn, but is he capable of keeping Black Ink afloat? Check out the must-see moments from last night’s episode, and excuse us while we grab a tissue and think about how tight this group used to be.

Sassy Says “Enough!”

As the newly appointed manager, Sassy didn’t feel experienced enough to handle the day-to-day operations at Black Ink, as well as unexpected run-ins with the power company or City Marshalls. She talked to Ceaser about going back to her old role as head of the shop’s PR, and the two smiled at their ability to leave any Dutchess-related issues out of their business. That is, until Dutchess wanted revenge on Sassy, after she felt an Instagram post (remember, kids: the internet is written in ink!) criticized her relationship with Ceaser. Channeling her inner Mean Girl, Dutchess made Sassy the butt of a slow day office joke, and spread rumors that she slept with Teddy. Soon enough, a mysterious, texting birdie told Sassy what was going down. “Black Ink is a negative situation in my life, so I just don’t want any part of it,” Sassy told the camera, after floating into the shop and leaving the message that she would no longer be working there.

Erica Mena Puts Rich Dollaz In The Past

Love And Hip Hop vixen Erica Mena has a tendency for creating a love triangle or two, but her visit to Black Ink was anything but romantic. Rather than request matching chess pieces for herself and her latest boo, Ms. Mena sought the special talents of Dutchess to remove the lingering memory of her former boyfriend, Rich Dollaz. Despite the fact that they’re no longer together (eh, who really knows where they stand these days?), Ceaser thought it was only right to inform Rich that his lady was trying to erase him. “The difference between my relationship and theirs? Dutchess isn’t relying on me to get her a record deal,” Ceaser said. What followed can only be described as “struggle face to the max.” Nice scorpion, E!

O’S**t Reminds Us Of Just How Much He’s Juggling

An unexpected hold up at work (also known as Cease’s failure to pay the bills) is simply not acceptable for O’S**T, who has a lot on his plate right now. In case you need a reminder, that would be…

1. Court Fees
2. Lawyer Fees
3. Baby Fees
4. Baby Mama Fees
5. Girlfriend Fees

Sigh. Being such a desirable piece of man candy will never stop biting Dick Duncan in the behind. He can’t help it that he’s beautiful!

O’S**t Remixes The English Language

In addition to stretching his wallet, the many burdens plaguing O’S**t’s personal life are finally affecting his work. During a tattoo session, O’S**t got carried away with chest piece without using Spellcheck first.

Let’s take a closer look:

Yep, no “s” in sight. But that’s nothing a little dollar sign can’t fix!

“Me Against The World”? Nah, just O’S**t against Ceaser, who is now wondering how he hired someone with the capacity to mess up so frequently.

What did you think of tonight’s episode? Was Dutchess wrong to spread rumors about Sassy? Will you miss seeing Sassy at the shop? Is Ceaser’s sister Tiffany a good addition? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
