Abby or anyone else is "fodder" for both possible off-ing or just red herring distraction... whenever they end a season with a bomb and not showing bodies... its a "who will survive" scenario.
But... it's interesting that Ducky has a solo heart-attack scene on the beach with no one around him.
IF the idea was to be part of the "who will survive" scenario, they could have just had him be in the building when the bomb goes off... that they specifically took Ducky out on his own to show him having an independent problem... even if he doesn't die, it seems to set up for him to take a step back and have Jimmy Palmer be a bigger part of the autopsy scenes.
Everybody else can conveniently survive or not as they see fit when signing contracts for next season.
