Haven't really been on so sorry if this was discussed.
Does anyone think that Brad is in a coma somewhere and that Victor is taking care of him since Abby loves him so much? Even if he is buried doesn't mean there is a body in there.
Even though Brad was shown frozen to death I think maybe Victor has him warming up some where. That way Brad can come back at any time and once again Victor is a hero and Brad will owe him!
