There is a very real possibility that Apuron will return.
As of today, the sex abuse allegations against him remain only allegations. Allegations are not grounds for forcibly removing a bishop from office. Decent men will step aside and permit an investigation, but Apuron is not a decent man.
What Apuron does not know, is how much he is despised in Rome, personally despised.
He is seen as nothing more than a pimple on a hog's butt. The trouble is that the hog is a big, nasty, sharp-tusked boar named Kiko Arguello, or more specifically, the corrupt, controlling syndicate, masquerading as an "itinerary of faith formation" that Arguello built with the help of the likes of the Gennarini brothers.
