Towards the end of Looper, "old Joe" is captured by the young guy and brought back to the mob's HQ in the strip club. Joe escapes by first kicking Abe in the crotch then shooting the young guy and Abe. Joe shoots his way out then blows up the club.
I assumed Abe was killed, but the next scene showed him alive and hiding behind a table. But shortly after, there is a shot of him lying dead on the floor.
Did I miss something here? What actually happened to Abe?
