BADADING BADABOOM!!!!!!!!!!! We caught Mr. Ewell in a trap that Atticus set it for him. This can foreshadow that Mr. Ewell might have abuse her daughter, because the evidence shows that Mayella was mostly hit in her right side of her face, which means the abuser was left-handed and proves how it could be her own father.
