"Maya forgave you? Doesn't matter it won't last. You know, you can't keep up this act for long -- Eventually Maya's gonna see what I see -- you're a psycho. You know, it just sucks that Maya's gonna have to deal with it, and if you cared about her, at all, then you'd get out of her life now. Forever."
— Zig's last words to Cam.

The conflict between Campbell Saunders and Zig Novak is known as Zigbell (Zig/Campbell) or Zampbell (Zig/Campbell). The two were on good terms until Zig showed an interest in Campbell's girlfriend, Maya. They then became rivals for Maya's affections.

In Bitter Sweet Symphony (2), Zig feels incredibly guilty and tells Maya that he is the reason Cam killed himself, saying "I told Cam to get out of your life, so he did -- it's all my fault".

In Karma Police (2), Zig shows remorse and sorrow fully after expressing his emotions about hurting people and making Cam commit suicide to Damon, Maya, and Madame. Zig later owns up to all of his mistakes and, in French class, apologizes to everyone he hurt individually; Madame, Tori, Tristan, Maya, and, most importantly Campbell. It is clear Zig realizes he should just remember him and hope he hears his apology, he still feels guilt but hopes one day he can forgive himself for harming Cam mentally.
