 Tyler's relationship with Lillian has many facets, including Tyler's awe and respect for Lillian, her need for Lillian's approval, and her fear of Lillian. Do you think Lillian is aware of Tyler's reaction to her, and how do you think that factors in to the way Lillian treats Tyler?

I think she is aware and she uses it at times but tries to not take advantage.

I agree that Lillian is very much aware, and she uses it to get what she needs/wants, although sometimes what she wants is actually what's best for Tyler.

She's aware and probably thinks Tyler really is good enough to take over one day, and maybe she's scared of that fact and tries to control the situation to her advantage.

I don't know if Lillian is scared. I don't think much scares her! I agree with you that she sees how good Tyler is, though. I think she sees it as a challenge to push Tyler to reach her potential.

Yes, I think Lillian is aware of Tyler's reaction to her.  I think Lillian cares about Tyler but also doesn't want to seem too friendly because she is Tyler's boss.

I agree. I think she is very fond of Tyler, but I think Lillian keeps herself reserved and separated from everyone so she doesn't get too attached and involved.

Lillian is the alpha in the relationship, and Tyler grew too used to the arrangement. I looked at the Nov. 12 incident with the budget as the main indicator. Golphin's law - the way you start is the way you finish. Once comfortably established, the power dynamic in most relationships are impossible to shift. Note the difference in Laura's response to Lillian. 

You are so right! Hence the difficulty in changing the way we are treated once the relationship is established.
I think Lillian has definitely asserted herself and Tyler is unwilling to challenge her. I actually think Lillian sometimes goads Tyler or pushes her to try and make her stand up for herself.
