Quote:Vance went to jail for killing his father.
For what, a month? It would really have to be to make since in the sliding timeline.
And calling it "jail" is questionable, too. He was basically given a job.
Vance was willing to go to jail to serve his time... if circumstances change once he was in jail that doesn't negate his willingness to serve his time.
Abner willingly went to jail twice. The first time the Commission released him and tried to blackmail him into working for them. The second time he served his sentence.
