After his last day of taping for the series, Christopher updated his blog to thank his fans for their support and shared this information about his final scene with Jonathan Jackson (Lucky):
“Jonathan and I wrote our last scene over coffee at Starbucks. It took about two hours for us to come together on a scene that you will see in a couple of weeks. (Don’t know the air date off hand) It is about 5 minutes long and will embody everything you’ve grown to love about these two characters. Personally, it was the finest moment of my career.”

Tyler Christopher will return for three episodes in August to wrap up loose ends with his onscreen sister Lulu (Julie Berman).
