I think something begins to change in Silas when he loseshis gold. He is forced to interact with people. When Molly is found dead in the snow the baby by his hearth becomes his. Silas instantly feels compassion for the child. For lack of a better phrase, the child completes Silas. He finds someone who needs him.
