Quote Tily4life: So it looks like the writers have decided to dangle us a Tily carrot in the day ahead episode! ~)
Day ahead recap...
Tyler is at the park waiting for someone. After pacing around a little, Lily shows up. He thanks her for meeting him. She says she doesn't know why he wants to meet with her alone.
Tyler says he wants to clear the air. He mentions their past decent working relationship but says that other 'stuff' has made things weird between them. She tries to dismiss this talk by saying things are fine. She says she loves her husband, etc.. But Tyler apologizes to her for ever trying to mess things up for her marriage. He says he doesn't want things to be as weird as they are now, and he mentions how they barely even spoke at Thanksgiving dinner at Neil's. She thinks maybe that is best. He says he wants to thank her and that without her, he never would have been able to move on with his life.
Tyler clarifies that he's steering clear of awkward and inappropriate. He explains that when they met,he was still hurting after a very painful break up with his ex-fiancée, Mariah. She says sorry. Tyler says he thought he was done with love after Mariah, but that Lily made him see that there were still good, honest beautiful women around. He says if it weren't for Lily, he wouldn't have fallen for Abby. He says he and Abby have a really good thing and that she makes him really happy. Tyler says there's something else he wants to talk to Lily about.
Tyler wants this weekend to be special for Abby so he doesn't want any of her work commitments to spill over into the weekend. Lily says she can hold down the fort in Abby's absence and tells him she plans to leave Jabot soon to work with Cane on a yet to be determined project. Lily wants to thank Tyler for letting her see that Cane is the only man for her. They both agree that everything worked out for the best for both of them. They hug just as Abby shows up at the park and says, 'How many women do I have to push out of the way?'
Tyler and Lily play things down. Lily makes her excuses and leaves. Abby seems unconvinced and brings up Mariah. Tyler gives a speech about how Mariah and Lily mean nothing to him and that she's the one he wants, etc. Then Abby reveals she was only pulling his leg and they start kissing.
So, it looks like Tily is officially kaput which means more boring and irrelevant Lane scenes are on the horizon and more of Tabby, which I still can't get behind because the writers have sucked all of Tyler's personality and spark away with this pairing. ~)
Well, Tily was fun while it lasted. Sad that the writers really missed the boat with this potentially great couple.
Oh well, I guess I can't say I'm surprised. I have to admit, the Tily scenes was the first time I was liking CK's Lily. I just feel they could've made a nice pairing, but I guess TPTB and the Lane fans were scared to make the change. The funny thing is no matter how popular, soap couples do break up. As we know it doesn't have to be permanent(Nikki and Victor), but it's a soap staple.
As for Tabby, I was trying to give them a chance, but we aren't seeing much with them. We're just all of sudden hearing Tyler expressing love, yet we haven't seen it develop to really care. Another thing, Tyler's airtime has dwindled significantly. Now that Mariah has become an issue for Abby, I get the feeling they won't last very long. Poor Ty...just can't catch a break.
