Darcy’s outburst leaves Heath convinced his blunders in the past have stuffed up Darcy’s life for good. With his guilt and anger intensifying he splits-up with Bianca. Bianca says such a decision is only stemming from the heartache of losing his daughter, but Heath begs to differ. Their relationship isn’t working out for him.
