What an absolutely wonderful episode of HBO's "Enlightened"—episode 15, "The Ghost is Seen," airing on Sunday, February 10.2013.

This episode explores Tyler's life. Tyler is resigned to being a "ghost." He has come to prefer it, actually. His voice-over monologue opens the episode and shows us that Tyler no longer even hopes to love and be loved. He says, "It's OK to be a ghost. No love to lose. No burden to be. So little to hold you down. You are free."

Dougie and Amy have hacked into the email account of Abadonn's CEO, Charles Szidon, but they have not been able to find anything incriminating. They realize that there must be a secret account, and the only way to find that account is through an assistant to Szidon.

Eileen (played by Molly Shannon) is their key to unlock this account. Eileen is Szidon's assistant and another lonely pearl who has no expectations. Tyler is sent to gain her confidence, but when he approaches Eileen, he is too shy to ask her out.

They eventually end up in bed together, but first Eileen has to give him a long speech about how she doesn't expect much, but could he please not hurt her.

She and Tyler are kindred spirits. A ghost. A pearl. This is the "can- two-sad-lonely-people-make- one- happy- couple?" moment of the week.

Everyone ends up happy in this episode, but I suspect they won't be happy for long.
