Talk to Abigail
Your argument with Abigail is interrupted by Tom, who lets you know that Mr. Geddes needs you to head over to Strawberry to pick up some mail. Drive the wagon to the waypoint by the post office.
While looking for mail, the wrong person overhears the name Marston, and of course it causes trouble.
On the way home, you pick up a tail. No matter how fast you order Jack to drive, you cannot lose them.
Especially since two more men join the hunt soon enough.
You tell Jack to stop the wagon at a fallen tree, and you jump out to confront the men. If your Dead Eye meter isn’t full at this point, it would be an excellent moment to use a tonic. Trying to defuse the situation is pointless, it’s time for action.
- GOLD MEDAL: Kill all 3 enemies in Dead Eye
Once all three are down, get back to Jack immediately. Skip the cinematic.
- GOLD MEDAL: After the confrontation, return to Pronghorn Ranch within 1 minute 30 seconds
Steer around the fallen log to the left through the trees and drive the wagon as hard as you can back to Pronghorn Ranch. Cut left across this bend in the road to save time.
From here it’s just a straight shot down the road to Pronghorn. Drive like hell and good luck!
This finishes Fatherhood, for Idiots main mission in Red Dead Redemption 2. Now the next quest Motherhood starts.
