Cole is building his cabin. He had burnt the last one down on purpose. He had burnt it out of anger. Now he must build the cabin out of self-discovery, a little mea culpa. Part of his "second chance" was to build the cabin better than he had before. Cole must learn to atone for his mistakes and to improve the second time around. The two elders can't help because this is part of Cole's healing process; he must take responsibility for his actions.
