Kilmeny Adie from the Illawarra Mercury believed that Dani never quite got over Will and her feelings were "not made easier" when she learned that Will and Gypsy had got engaged soon after the birth of their daughter.
Their relationship is going well and the Sutherlands like him, but now Kit could mess it up." Dani and her boyfriend Will Smith start having problems in their relationship and Dani begins flirting with Kane, eventually kissing him.
She feels guilty afterwards and tries to get Kane out of her head.
As he is comforting her, Ross kisses Dani and she responds.
However, she realises that it is wrong and that is when she gets back in the car and drives off.
Dani was initially against moving to the Bay as she thought the town was "tame".
The character was described as being strong, independent and a bit of a rebel by a writer for the show's official website. Dani developed relationships with three of the serial's male characters; Will Smith (Zac Drayson), Josh West (Daniel Collopy) and Scott Hunter (Kip Gamblin).
The storyline unfolded through a series of flashbacks.
The episode begins in the present and then goes through time to reveal what happened in the previous twenty-four hours.
Two weeks later, they met again and Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) informed Dani that Scott had invested in the boat shed and was trying to escape city life.
Gamblin told Jason Herbison from Inside Soap, "Scott is happy because he thinks it will help her, but it really complicates things for him and Dani.
Sursok added "People can't help but wonder is she did it on purpose - and that includes her father and Scott. She would never try to kill anyone - but how can she convince them?
