They should build a fire by the shore first sothat the other survivors can locate them. However, Fingal insists they should returnto his cottage to rest, and Ferris agrees, citing that Oliver needs medicalattention. Oliver reluctantly concedes, and the group follows theolder man to his home. At the cottage, the men tell Fingalthat they're merchants who got shipwrecked due to their captain insistingon following a light through the mist. Fingal dodges questions about the island's exactlocation and a return boat to mainland Scotland. He complies with Oliver's requests and leavesthe group to light a fire by the beach. Meanwhile, Korrigan Mcleod and Lanthe Innismeet up and talk about the arrival of the.
