Quote LaBrae: I agree with this that TPTB probably didn't expect viewers to actually take to Lily with another guy. Although Lane has a big fanbase, so does most of the soap couples(Shadam, Shick, Navery, Phick, etc.), but they still actually wrote a storyline where we saw how the "problems" within the relationship started to surface. I believe they just attempted to bring Tyler in as eye candy angst for Lane, but didn't really expect much to happen between them. This is why the story feels like a roller coaster. One minute we see Lily all lovey dovey with Cane and happy, then all of a sudden she's acting like she can't get enough of Tyler. Well, as others have stated, its been 6mths of basically the same thing. So I feel either they're going to actually move the story along and allow Cane and Lily to have some problems that will give them a reason to split apart break, or just leave them together.
While I understand the show has a strong Lane fanbase,but on a soap no couple stays together forever. Yes, some do reunite and remarry more than once(aka Victor and Nikki Newman), but there's usually other love interests in-between. Cane and Lily are still very young, and have had a lengthy relationship in the sense of soap characters. So I really don't see anything wrong with them moving onto to someone new at this time.
Couldn't agree. Now that they realise that there ARE a lot of people who ship Tyler and Lily, I hope they write for them and make them one of the next supercouples of the show. Because like you said, nothing lasts forever on a soap. I know that Lane has a strong vocal fanbase but I believe Shick, Phick, Villy and Chadam are even stronger... Just saying. And except for Villy, the other couples all ended. So why not Lane? Especially since Lane, compared to the other couples, are seriously boring and are like watching paintdry, I'm not even kidding. Look how Lily sparkles around Tyler... And the same for Cane with Chelsea, Sharon and now Hilary. Lily and Cane NEED that break up. And if really they are meant to be, they will reunite.
Now if really they brought Tyler just to give Lane angst, I think 6 months is enough now! Free him from LAME if you don't want to give Tily a try then! Poor Hilary... She's gonna be used to make Lane interesting too, just watch... Until TPTB realises that NOTHING will ever make Lane interesting, except a friendly divorce. >)
