Added DiffLines:

* FateWorseThanDeath: Implied for young Seth. Abe knows they can't kill him (because he needs to survive long enough to be sent back in time and complete the loop), so instead condemns him to 30 years bedridden with no limbs, tongue, ears or nose. The fact he can (presumably) still talk at least lets him narrowly avert AndIMustScream.


Added DiffLines:

** Especially since this involved driving a hoverbike with a single ''broken'' hand, pulling off reasonably accurate shots with his offhand in the meantime.
