TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already


TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means the world is once again filled with chocolates, flowers, and those little heart-shaped candies, which (in my opinion) both look and taste like mini-antacids. (Romance!) What I’m basically trying to say is that love is in the air, whether we like it or not.

And while many TV characters have recently been struck by Cupid’s arrow, others having been keeping fans waiting for that inevitable lip-lock for far too long. Which is why we here at TVRage have taken it upon ourselves to call out these TV pairs on their lack of tonsil hockey and request that they finally go ahead and kiss already.

Now, given how passionate fans can be about their “shipping” favorites (myself included), there’s a distinct possibility you won’t agree with all of these choices and spiral into a fit of outrage. But hey, it wouldn’t be a proper V-day without a little heartache, right? Check out our selections below and see if your favorite should-be couples made the cut.

Oliver and Felicity — ‘Arrow’

TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already

You have to admit, these two are so cute together. And yes, Oliver shares a great deal of history with both Laurel and Sara, but who’s always there for him when he needs her? Felicity. Who helps to snap him out of some of his darkest days? Felicity. Who’s shown him complete honesty when he’s surrounded by secrets and lies? Felicity. Anyone else detecting some sort of pattern here? And remember how annoyed Oliver got when Felicity started spending all of her time with Barry? (Jealous much?) A lip-lock is simply inevitable for this dynamic duo, preferably with a shirtless Stephen Amell. Olicity Forever!

Caroline and Stefan — ‘The Vampire Diaries’

TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already

Now that Klaus and Caroline have had their fun, it’s time to let Steroline fans have their day in the sun (just so long as they’re wearing daylight rings, of course). These two have developed quite the strong bond over the years and the chemistry we’ve seen this season has never been stronger. (Does that fireplace scene ring any bells?) Plus, we know some of the best relationships start out as friendships. So come on, let’s make this happen, writers. We’ve waited long enough.

Abbie and Ichabod — ‘Sleepy Hollow’

TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already

Granted, constantly trying to save the world from demonic creatures and Headless Horsemen doesn’t exactly leave much time for romance (go figure!). Not to mention the fact that Ichabod is still in love with his formerly Purgatory-bound wife, Katrina. So yeah, these two have certainly got some obstacles ahead of them, but that hasn’t stopped Sleepyheads from shipping these two Witnesses throughout the entire first season. The spark is there — it’s just a question of how long we’ll have to wait until it’s ignited. I’m hoping sooner rather than later. Sorry, Katrina, but these two are just too adorable to miss out on.

Elijah and Hayley — ‘The Originals’

TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already

Vampire love triangles are still all the rage these days, but how about a vampire-werewolf hook-up?! Elijah is always so busy wearing suits and constantly thinking of others that he never really has time for a proper love life of his own…at least not for any extended period of time. He deserves his fair share of romance and the sexual tension between him and Hayley continues to grow more and more potent. I don’t know how many more almost-kisses I can take. Those longing looks are torture. Let’s make this happen! (Though they may want to steer clear of any hickeys.)

Mary and Charles Blake — ‘Downton Abbey’

TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already

Now that Mary’s once again living the single life, she’s already found herself surrounded by quite a number of potential (and rather handsome) suitors. Among this group includes Charles Blake. Granted, these two didn’t exactly get off on the right foot, but when two people bicker as much and as adamantly as these two do, there’s bound to be a level of passion hidden beneath all that frustration and well-placed sarcasm. (As the saying goes, there’s a thin line between love and hate.) And after this week’s episode, I’d say it’s clear they’re starting to see each other in an entirely different light. (Spending a night in the mud with pigs will do that to young folk.) I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to these two sharing a tender embrace…as properly as possible, of course.

Molly and Sherlock — ‘Sherlock’

TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already

Some may accuse me of cheating with this one given that we did see Sherlock and Molly kiss at the start of Season 3. HOWEVER, I don’t consider that one to officially count since it was simply part of Anderson’s wildly concocted theory of how Sherlock faked his death. We were punk’d, basically (or whatever the British version of that is). So this has still yet to actually happen. But it’s only a matter of time now, right? Their bond has grown significantly stronger throughout the seasons and Sherlock’s recently proved that he is, in fact, capable of showing emotion in the best way possible (hello, Best Man speech!). So one can only deduce that these lingering kisses on the cheek will inevitably lead to a full-on smooch. The (love) game is on!

Donna and Harvey — ‘Suits’

TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already

There’s nothing quite as sweet as the forbidden attraction of two co-workers. It’s wrong…it’s against the rules…dare I say, a little dangerous. Who isn’t going to be drawn to that, especially when your boss looks like Gabriel Macht. But wait, Kelly — you may say, "These two already did get together." True. I can’t argue with that. BUT we completely missed it. (I object!) So by my standards that makes any sort of hook-up between these two null and void. It’s just wrong to keep something as steamy as that behind a closed door. That’s my verdict. Call me greedy, but I need to see it to believe it. Court adjourned.

Honorable Mention:

Riley and Gabriel — ‘Intelligence’

TV Pairs Who Need to Seal the Deal Already

Given that the series only just started last month, I haven’t seen enough of this duo to fully invest myself in them romantically. However, there seems to be unlimited potential. He’s currently available…she’s sworn to protect the billion dollar computer chip in is his brain — that’s pretty much a match made in heaven, right? Seriously though, with each passing episode they grow more and more fond of each other, so it seems the only “intelligent” thing to do would be to upgrade this pair to a kissing status. Plus, honestly, it’s the perfect excuse to see a shirtless Josh Holloway. So win-win, basically. Now that’s a download I could get onboard with.

- Intelligence (US)
- The Originals
- Arrow
- Suits
- Downton Abbey
- Sherlock
- The Vampire Diaries
- Sleepy Hollow

I see Destiel as a Brotp, not an actual relationship. And that has nothing to do with only shipping heterosexual couples.

Most of these need to NOT happen actually. Yikes.

Intelligence and Sleepy Hollow Male caracters have Just lost there wives and you want them to hook-up already. Give them time people but give Ichabod time to save his wife before he goes looking else where.

As for the others, bring on the soft lighting and sappy music :-)

Re Arrow and Intelligence absolutely agree, those couples must get together, never to be torn asunder! Sherlock, okay, seems good to me. But Ichabod must remain faithful to Katrina, unless and until she is killed off; then the match should be on. Felicity and Oliver perfect together and likewise Riley and Gabriel.

Gotta love Johnlock and Destiel shippers. This is why no one likes you guys- you can't express your opinion without being jerks about it and putting down other ships.

To all of you whiney liberals, especially the ones using the anonymous titles, if you force the opinion of someone who doesn't have that opinion you ruin your own argument. It's hard to respect a real lbgt/black/asian/or any minority, if you're shoving your BS down people's throats. I'm not a shipper, but I think that a side story where dean and cas do hook up could be hilarious. That being said, until one or both of them decide to step out of the closet you're all just sitting on pipe dreams.

The whining about this subject is just like the whining about white American morality and masculinity. Let it come when it's ready. It wouldn't be genuine for her to add a token minority couple. Would you rather see the real thing or some crap made in a studio? Forcing and faking crap takes it from valid to laughable. The rainbow parade here is just like the raving racists with crosses and swastikas that make them look like a bunch of morons.

Tone it down and let things come naturally.

Wow, only hetero couples. How surprising. Let's just ignore couples with WAY MORE CHEMISTRY like John and Sherlock or Castiel and Dean Winchester from Supernatural because wow no, they can't be together, they're two men. So sick of this shit, honestly.

I liked tvrage better when it wasn't tabloid shit like this.

How about none of them. Why is it always necessary? I can think of maybe two shows EVER that improved solely because of a relationship and about 1000 that became awful because of it.
i mean have you seen them

I think Dean and Cas are FIVE YEARs overdue, and much more chemistry than these couples! And I watch all shows except Suits, so that's saying something.
