Pippy Rosewood (Gabrielle Dennis)
At the start of police procedural Rosewood, Pippy was engaged to Tara Milly Izikoff (aka TMI) and the two were planning their upcoming wedding. The pair worked together at a pathology lab where the mission was to find out how victims died. During the course of Season 1 the pair struggled with wedding preparations, communication problems, TMIs unsupportive parents, and Pippy’s parents divorce. When Pippy’s childhood friend, and ex-girlfriend, Cassie showed up the two reconnected and picked up their friendship, leaving TMI to feel left out. Later Cassie admitted that her romantic feelings for Pippy never went away and that she planned to break up her and TMI. However, after seeing the couple together and talking to TMI she realized that Pippy was with the right woman. Pippy agreed, but Cassie said she couldn’t be friends with Pippy anymore and left town.
Leading up to the season finale TMI started to get closer to a male co-worker and they eventually ended up kissing, while Pippy witnessed the whole interaction. In the next episode, and the season finale, three weeks had passed and everything seemed to be back to normal between Pippy and TMI, however, TMI told Pippy that she could no longer get married, because she didn’t know who she was without Pippy, and she felt like she needed to find that out. The season ended with them broken up.
In the Season 2 premiere, with the wedding called off and Pippy having quit her job at Magic City Lab to become a recording artist, TMI had no idea how Pippy was doing. In 2×02 TMI called Pippy to ask for help on a case, they worked together again (2×03) and Pippy returned to work at the lab (2×04) to fund her music career. In 2×06, Pippy had an off-screen date with another woman who turned out also dated TMI (off-screen).
In 2×07, Pippy and TMI show up very briefly to work on the case of the week, for a girl’s night out and to give dating advice to other (straight) characters. In 2×09 TMI was excited because she had invited her college roommate to hang out during an autopsy. When the roommate showed up she was excited to meet Pippy because “who wouldn’t fall in love with her”. Pippy quickly corrected her that she and TMI were broken up.
In 2×10, at the end of the episode, there was a very brief scene of Pippy and TMI kissing in an elevator, after a hostage situation they weren’t a part of. The following episode, Pippy admitted to Rosie (her brother) she and TMI had a post-break-up slip up that she didn’t feel like dissecting. It was unclear how Rosie knew about it in the first place, as there was no other relationship development on screen.
In 2×15, Rosie showed up at Pippy’s apartment looking for TMI, and it was implied Pippy and TMI were having off-screen sex on a regular basis.
In 2×20, TMI’s first boyfriend was the case of the week and she and Pippy joined leads Rosie and Villa when they went to investigate his murder. Pippy and TMI shared a few moments during the episode and at the end, TMI told Pippy she wanted to be honest about them, but their conversation was not shown on screen. The following episode, they appeared in the background doing some lab work.
In the finale, they seemed to be back together again – they were cuddling in the lab in the beginning of the episode, and in another short scene with the rest of the cast, they revealed they had gotten married, and didn’t know how to tell everyone.
The show was cancelled after season 2.
