Hearing that Luke in LA and camped under the Hollywood sign, she decides to go see him. They pull up in a limo and Luke opens the door. They both remark that they heard each other was in town. Luke comments ‘hey ya’ll it’s Anita Blackwell’ and she says hi to Bo, Gabriella, Cletus, Cooter, and Rosco. She asks Luke if they can go for a walk and Luke agrees.
As they walk and hold hands she says she knows it’s strange but she had to see him one more time. Luke says he’s glad she did but he just wonders why she did. She tells him to see if they were over and if she was over him. She hangs onto his arm and he says it sounds like one of her songs. They continue to walk and talk and watch the sunset together. He walks her back to her car and she says she’s in a good marriage and Luke is a ghost that won’t go away. Luke asks what she wants him to say. She tells him that she wants him to say that he doesn’t still love her. Luke sighs before telling her he can’t say that. He says he wishes he could. She says she knows, and reaches out to touch his face as she says she wishes he could to. She tells him goodbye and he kisses her cheek. She leaves.
