Karl reminds her he is with Susan. She doesn't want him, Karl is confused.
IZZY: All of this, just moving back here, being back here, trying to have another baby with you. I just wanted to get that feeling that-
KARL: That feeling with me?
IZZY: That feeling within myself. And it's not here.
Izzy doubts if the feeling was ever here after seeing the look on his face. Izzy worries she isn't talking sense but Karl admits she is. He mentions the gap. Fifteen years ago they were sharing a bottle of whiskey in the surgery. They talked about the life they've got and the one they could have had. They ended up together as they were both trying to fill the gap. Izzy admits that was the one time she was happy. Karl agrees there were plenty of dramas and it didn't all go smoothly, Izzy agrees.

KARL: Izzy you've got a lot to give. You've got a wonderful daughter, and I'm absolutely sure you'll find peace within yourself. But you have to do it yourself by looking into the future and not looking at the past.

Izzy says she just wanted to be a part of their lives and didn't plan for Karl and Susan to split. Izzy doesn't hate Susan, she admits to admiring her. Susan points out that Izzy's way of showing it is strange! People can go about things the right or wrong way, Izzy knows which way is which. Izzy is going so Susan can go back to her perfect life and perfect Karl! Susan tells Izzy to stay, Izzy isn't keen but Susan tells her she should stay here in Erinsborough. Susan points out that Izzy told Karl she was happy in Erinsborough. Izzy could find a job, a unit or house nearby. Holly could stay at Erinsborough High and have both parents nearby.
