Beginning of LilliBuzz

One of the most fun couples of the last years of Guiding Light was Lillibuzz – Lillian Raines and Buzz Cooper.

Lillian Raines (Tina Sloan) had been introduced in a dependent and abusive relationship with Bradley Raines who was her daughter Beth’s step-father. According to Sloan, Beth’s biological father had served and been a casualty of Vietnam and they had never been married. Her relationship history was spotty at best having the strongest relationship with Reva’s father Hawk Shayne which broke up when his ex-wife Sarah returned to town.

Buzz Cooper (Justin Deas) had several relationships during his time in Springfield. Buzz had been part of the very popular supercouple Jezz, but Jenna had died back in 1998. Since then Buzz had relationships with Selena Davis (Drew Jacob Blue’s biological mother) who bore a striking relationship to Buzz’s first wife Nadine and Holly Lindsey which was an odd choice because she substantially contributed to Jenna’s death.

This highlight clip from the July 5, 2007 episode shows the start of Lillian and Buzz’s relationship. It was a fun relationship, but solid and showed that a mature couple could have romance as well as teenagers. They quickly built a tradition of sneaking away from the Bauer BBQ and sneaking away for some “alone time.” Their wedding, which they suddenly shared with Buzz’s good friend Billy Lewis and his true love Vanessa Chamberlain Lewis, was Lillian first celebration wedding. Again, according to Sloan, Lillian and Bradley’s wedding was more like a justice of the peace civil ceremony so this was truly special for her and him as his marriage to Jenna had been in the delivery room to beat Rocky’s birth.

I’m sure we all think that LilliBuzz are continuing to live a happy ever after in Springfield…hopefully without Buzz mortgaging Company again. 🙂
