By the end of the story Cole has come to terms with his rage. He even lets Peter hit him. Cole seems to have stopped playing games of manipulation and started to become responsible for his actions. He has a sense of self-awareness that he never had before. I think Cole will be successful when he finally leaves. If anything, he might follow in the footsteps of Garvey and help another troubled teen. Cole now takes responsibility for his actions where he did not before.
