    Mark threatened us... and I am starting to suspect why Brad is acting

    Hello.

    Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

    "Mark threatened us... and I am starting to suspect why Brad is acting so strange these days, following and justifying every order given by Mark. Brad can't help you. He is too afraid of Mark."

    Thanks.

    No, the ellipsis doesn't belong. What have you left out that warrants it?

    Dear Raymott:

    First of all, thanks for your answer. Yes you are correct, the ellipsis doesn't belong.

    Is the following sentence grammatically correct?

    "
    Mark threatened us, and I am starting to suspect why Brad is acting so strange these days, following and justifying every order given by Mark. Brad can't help you. He is too afraid of Mark."

    Thanks.
