Yes, Abel has been beaten up, arrested, and proven to be drunk. Neither of us would soften the blow, we wouldn’t pull any punches, we would tell Elliot Abel Hoofman needs to leave town no matter what, even if he had to swim home. Abel should just go home before his life gets any worse. Robert’s dad will sadly be found dead, or seriously wounded to the point where he dies in the hospital. We’re unsure about him surviving.
