BIO


A wife and mother before her abduction, Lily Tyler (Laura Allen), returned to find her husband, Brian, re-married and daughter, Heidi, unaware of her existence.

But Lily's life took a turn for the better while in quarantine, where she met fellow 4400 Richard Tyler and felt an immediate connection. Unbeknownst to Lily, she and Richard had conceived a child in the future but it wasn't until her return that Lily learned of her pregnancy.

From the beginning, Lily noticed a strange connection to her unborn daughter Isabelle. She knew what her daughter was thinking and Isabelle, from the womb, could control her actions in certain situations. After Isabelle's birth, and while on the run from Jordan Collier and NTAC, Lily continued to feel an extreme connection with her daughter. Yet regardless of this strong maternal instinct, Lilly finds herself frightened at times by Isabelle and her powers.

SEASON THREE TIMELINE


The New World
  • Lily wakes to find a husband who doesn't recognize her. Instead of a 29-year-old, Lily has aged overnight into an elderly woman.

  • Lily soon learns that her daughter has rapidly aged as well, and mother and daughter realize that for one of them to survive the other must die. Lily refuses to entertain the idea that her daughter might be sacrificed for her to live.

  • Lily's condition continues to deteriorate (despite the relief Shawn provides). She and Richard spend their last days together in the cabin they once lived in. Shortly after arriving, Lily passes away.

SEASONS ONE AND TWO TIMELINE


  • Lily returns and while in quarantine forms an immediate connection with fellow 4400 Richard Tyler, her grandmother's past fiancÚ.

  • After her release she finds that her husband, Brian, has moved on following her disappearance. He's remarried and raising their daughter as his new wife's biological child. Lily turns to Richard for support.

  • Lily discovers that not only was she impregnated in the future, but that she can also communicate with and feel her unborn child's emotions.

  • Lily and Richard flee The 4400 Center, living a life on the run from Jordan Collier and NTAC. During this time, the pair, along with newborn daughter Isabelle are hunted down by a religious zealot. But Isabelle saves her parents lives by willing death upon the stalkers.

  • Lily, unhappy with Richard for allowing Matthew Ross to conduct tests on Isabelle, secretly escapes The 4400 safe house with her child. Isabelle, apparently not pleased with her mother's decision, implants a series of horrifying visions in Lily's mind.

  • Mother and daughter return safely to The 4400 Center after Isabelle's blood helps cure the ailing 4400.

  • When Lily next checks in on Isabelle, she finds her daughter missing, not knowing that miraculously Isabelle has grown into an adult woman.
