When he hears that she's broken up with Todd, he couldn't be happier, but Anita wants to take things slowly and Draz has to accept friendship for the time being. In the meantime, he has to decide what to do with Dragan's ashes. He considers keeping them at home, but Zac's clearly spooked with the notion. Anita suggests scattering them somewhere special.

But she's got some bad news - she's not staying in Hartley. Draz is shattered. Anita assures him it's not good-bye forever. She just needs some time to work out what she really wants to do with her life. Draz knows he has to let her go.
