|FROM THE OFFICIAL SEACHANGE WEBSITE -- Episode 15: "VAYA CON DIOS TO ALL THAT" : Laura and Dan's relationship would be perfect - if it wasn't for everything else in Laura's life. While Laura is trying to balance her work and her children with the attraction she so obviously feels for Dan - Dan is feeling very much on the outer. Jack's presence in Rupert and Miranda's lives begins to impact more and more on Laura and Dan - helped along by Rupert's well-intentioned, but for Dan painful, attempts to get his parents back together again. When Dan tempts Laura with talk of travel to exotic places, Laura struggles to find a way to fit his dream into her reality. But she's shocked to realise Dan will not compromise - he doesn't mean a holiday, he means forever.
The Council is in dire financial straits. Bob's impassioned speech about his financial prowess is rudely interrupted with a court summons for failing to lodge his tax return.
In court, Angus warns Laura of the endless tedium that is tax prosecution time. He is pleasantly surprised to discover the tax prosecutor is not a brown cardigan-wearing, middle-aged bureaucrat but a very attractive young woman named Katrina Fennessy. Katrina takes an increasing interest in Bob - and a surprisingly reasonable position about his fiscal impropriety. When she learns the town's bank has recently closed, Katrina senses an opportunity and begins to get to work on the people of Pearl Bay - via their esteemed leader, Bob Jelly. While the idea of a community bank has great appeal, the townsfolk are initially cautious. Bob, however, is won over with special promises of fame and fortune, and the hint of something more carnal when the deal is sealed.
A "family" picnic orchestrated by Rupert ends badly. Upset and frustrated, Rupert runs away. His distraught parents are joined by the town in their search for him.

During Rupert's disappearance, Laura grows to realise she needs... and wants... to stay in Pearl Bay. Moving there was the bravest thing she's ever done and she can't run away again. What Dan wants her to do is the most romantic thing she's ever heard - and the most impossible. The ties that bind Laura are the very things that define her. To stay is the wise, the noble and the only decision she could come to. Dan's life has been one of moving on, never forming attachments, never looking back. He has given Laura an ultimatum from which he can't - or won't - back down.
