Finest Teen Drama {Couples}


Nathan and Haley, One Tree Hill

The WB

Kelly: As ridiculous because it was that these two received married at 16 YEARS OLD, they’re positively the golden couple of this present. It is unbelievable how a lot they’ve grown collectively and the way supportive of one another they’re as people. Each time I rewatch Season 1 and listen to Nathan say, “Do not say I by no means gave you something,” my coronary heart simply MELTS.

Hannah: They positively had their struggles, reminiscent of Nathan’s despair and Haley’s music profession/Chris Keller, however they at all times got here out stronger on the opposite facet. They have been in a position to steadiness their very own goals with the work essential to maintain a wedding sturdy with out resenting one another. They at all times supported one another however weren’t afraid to offer robust love when it was wanted, and it ALWAYS paid off.

Finest second: When Nathan tells Haley he received into the NBA.


Jake and Peyton, One Tree Hill

The WB

Hannah: Filed underneath: COUPLES THAT DESERVED BETTER!!! Jake and Peyton have been SO candy collectively, and Peyton clearly had a lot love for Jake and his daughter. I imply, she actually took a ticket Pete Wentz gave her to make use of to see him (lol) and used it to see Jake as a substitute. Jake revered Peyton’s boundaries and her need to maneuver slowly, and he was SO protecting of her. However he was additionally a very good dad and at all times put his daughter first, and would’ve made a tremendous life companion. I’ll by no means forgive the present for randomly making Peyton “understand” she nonetheless liked Lucas.

Finest second: When Peyton is shopping for coke once more and Jake comes again to cease her whereas trying DAMN FINE.


Brooke and Lucas, One Tree Hill

The WB

Hannah: Aaaaand I will take “{couples} that deserved higher” for 800, Alex. Lucas was far too moody and critical, and Brooke was rather more enjoyable and impulsive. She was in a position to lighten Lucas up and get him to have enjoyable, whereas he was in a position to floor her and get her in contact along with her extra delicate and artistic facet. Lucas was a rattling idiot when it got here to Brooke in Season 1, however in Season Three he was total a very nice boyfriend who was in a position to assist her, forgive her, and get her to belief once more. The college capturing would possibly’ve modified issues, however I nonetheless suppose they might’ve labored. Taking Peyton away from Jake and placing her again with Lucas was a mistake.

Kelly: This one is clearly controversial as a result of, let’s be sincere, Lucas was a complete rat and Brooke deserved higher. BUT I am unable to deny that these two had me utterly wrapped round their finger. Lucas spent all of Season 2 rebuilding his friendship with Brooke and incomes her belief once more, and even satisfied her mother and father to let her keep in Tree Hill as a result of he “wasn’t able to lose her.” After they received again collectively in Season 3, their relationship was a lot extra mature and so they actually liked one another. I am sorry, however I will NEVER be satisfied that Lucas would have ended up with Peyton if it wasn’t for Chad and Sophia’s divorce in actual life.

Finest second: When Lucas guarantees to struggle for Brooke on the seaside.


Brooke and Julian, One Tree Hill

The WB

Hannah: Thank god they lastly gave Brooke somebody who deserved her. Julian got here off as a dick once we first met him, however it turned out he was only a large ol’ overly romantic nerd. He helped her recover from her belief points and reluctance to fall in love once more, and she or he helped assist him when he took big dangers in his profession. Alex was positively a foil within the combine, however I may truly see each side of the battle and felt they labored by way of it properly.

Kelly: I’ll at all times be a Brucas shipper at coronary heart, however I used to be actually glad Brooke ended up with somebody who liked her and handled her proper. I liked how Brooke opened as much as him and let herself fall in love once more, and I used to be so thrilled after they received pregnant with twins after they thought they would not have the ability to have youngsters.

Finest second: When Brooke lastly advised Julian she liked him within the Season 6 finale.


Veronica and Logan, Veronica Mars

The CW

Kelly: Okay, so the on-again, off-again nature of this relationship was positively irritating at occasions, however they nonetheless have my coronary heart. They began off hating one another, then slowly grew to become mates, after which fell in love and constructed a wonderful relationship. Logan actually modified for Veronica, and he’d go to the ends of the earth to guard her. I am not even going to acknowledge that Season Four ending, as a result of to me, they’re fortunately married and fixing mysteries collectively.

Finest second: Logan’s “I believed our story was epic” speech.


Cheryl and Toni, Riverdale

The CW

Hannah: Cheryl popping out to Toni was one of many highlights of Riverdale. It was surprising however in some way labored completely along with her character. Her and Toni as a pair are so cute contemplating their reverse personalities and types. Toni accepted Cheryl immediately and did not push her into something she wasn’t prepared for. Their first kiss when Toni rescued Cheryl was my favourite Riverdale kiss ever, and so they proceed to be an influence couple. Sadly, they’ve sidelined Toni of late, so we have not seen a lot from them apart from Toni simply standing by Cheryl’s facet. However the creator has promised to do higher by Toni and I am unable to wait to see the place they go together with the connection!

Kelly: I positively suppose Toni deserves extra storylines as a person character outdoors of their relationship, however I am unable to deny how a lot I nonetheless love Choni. Their reverse personalities simply sort of work completely collectively, and I believe they’ve one of many strongest, most real bonds on the entire present. Toni received Cheryl to open up and settle for herself, and Cheryl introduced out a softer facet in Toni. They maintain one another accountable and name one another out when vital, however they at all times have one another’s backs and so they love one another a lot. Their relationship is groundbreaking, and I hope the writers discover it to the fullest potential.

Finest second: When Toni tells Cheryl that her mom was fallacious about her and assures her that she’s not loveless, she’s sensational.


Betty and Archie, Riverdale

The CW

Kelly: Yeah, yeah, I do know Bughead and Varchie shippers are going to hate me for this (see Hannah beneath), however hear me out! Not solely are these two finest mates, however they’ve additionally been next-door neighbors since they have been 4. They’ve grown up their entire lives collectively, and so they know one another higher than anybody else. They care extra about one another than they do anybody on all the planet (bear in mind Betty’s “not individuals, only one particular person” line?). Their emotions have at all times been there; they simply have not gotten the timing proper. Whereas I don’t condone dishonest, I hope these two have a future collectively.

Hannah: Let the document present I don’t approve of this pairing, however Kelly feels strongly sufficient about it for the each of us.

Finest scene: When Archie tells Betty that slightly a part of him at all times thought they might find yourself collectively.


Ryan and Marissa, The O.C.


Kelly: Okay, I do know this relationship was exhausting, however I by no means felt like these two have been outright dangerous for one another? I believe they have been meant to be, however life simply would not allow them to be pleased. Individuals hate on Marissa, however she was so protecting of Ryan and actually liked him with all her coronary heart. He would have achieved something to avoid wasting her. They deserved higher!

Hannah: Look, they have been THE star-crossed lovers of juvenile dramas. The Jack and Rose. The Romeo and Juliet. It was principally love at first sight, and I may by no means get into any of Marissa’s different relationships. Ryan actually liked and supported her from the beginning, and whereas Marissa may make dangerous selections, he was normally affected person along with her. They have been good mates even after they weren’t in a relationship, and I am nonetheless mad about what occurred (if you already know, you already know).

Finest Second: When Ryan races to the New Yr’s Eve get together and arrives simply in time to kiss her at midnight.


Seth and Summer time, The O.C.


Hannah: I am a sucker for nerdy man + fashionable woman pairing (see: Stiles and Lydia), and Seth and Summer time principally wrote the ebook. Summer time was truthfully a fairly dangerous particular person and pal earlier than Seth, and I believe it was actually wholesome for her to really need to struggle for Seth when Anna got here into the image. I believe he grounded her, and she or he helped him get out of his head so much.

Kelly: I admittedly wasn’t fairly as invested in them as I used to be with Ryan and Marissa, however their relationship was positively iconic. I believe they each actually grew as people of their relationship and, it doesn’t matter what they went by way of, they at all times discovered their method again to one another. Thank god they received their pleased ending!

Finest second: When Summer time realizes she nonetheless loves him and so they have their Spider-Man kiss within the rain.


Hanna and Caleb, Fairly Little Liars


Hannah: Caleb liked Hanna SO MUCH. He began out working for Jenna, however it solely took a couple of episodes to alter his thoughts, after which his #1 precedence grew to become defending her. He helped rescue her each occasions she was kidnapped, and afterward he did not push her and was simply there to assist her in her trauma. And Hanna at all times supported Caleb, even when he needed to go go to his mother or go spend time on the spinoff (lol). Spencer and Caleb have been a mistake, and I used to be SO GLAD they introduced Hanna and Caleb again collectively ultimately.

Finest second: When Caleb comes over to inform Hanna that he is leaving to go to his mother and so they each say “I like you” for the primary time.


Liam and Annie, 90210

The CW

Kelly: I believe this was the one couple I actually stanned from 90210. Possibly their relationship was sort of cliché at occasions, however they have been simply so darn cute! They went by way of a number of ups and downs, like Liam deciding to not go to varsity and Annie getting shot, however they at all times caught by one another ultimately. They’d such wonderful chemistry, and I used to be so pleased they received their pleased ending after all the pieces. Plus, it was cute that Annie’s brother and Liam have been finest mates too!

Damon and Elena, The Vampire Diaries

The CW

Hannah: Damon and Elena are my OTP. Elena’s empathy softened Damon, and Damon’s daringness received her to embrace life as a vampire and let go of her self-hatred. Stefan felt far too comfy, whereas Damon actually challenged her. Damon grew a lot with Elena, and after they made the choice to develop into human collectively it was a wonderful second for them each. Whereas their relationship could possibly be poisonous, I actually imagine it was cured by them changing into human and shedding all bloodlust.

Finest second: When Elena takes the treatment and will get all her recollections of him again, and Damon sees that even when she’s human, she nonetheless loves him.


Caroline and Klaus, The Vampire Diaries

The CW

Hannah: I liked Caroline and Stefan, however (SPOILER ALERT) Stefan died. Caroline 100% ought to have ended up with Klaus (it appeared like she would possibly within the finale!!), however then The Originals needed to screw that up. Caroline at all times noticed the most effective in individuals, and at the same time as evil as Klaus was, she had a gentle spot for him. She grounded him and made him higher, and he broadened her perspective and wished to point out her all of the world needed to provide. I additionally liked that for as soon as somebody selected Caroline first, proper from the beginning, in contrast to Matt and Stefan and even Tyler to a level (he saved selecting Klaus over her). Klaus noticed how wonderful and full of sunshine she was in a city the place everybody appeared to miss her.

Finest second: When Klaus involves her commencement and says he intends to be her final love.


Josie and Hope, Legacies

The CW

Kelly: I do know these two aren’t technically in a relationship, however they might as properly be relationship already. They’ve each admitted to having crushes on one another, they might each threat their lives for one another in a heartbeat, and so they’ll at all times select one another over anybody else. They refuse to let anybody come between them, and so they at all times discover their method again to one another even after they struggle. Hope noticed the nice in Josie even when she was Darkish Josie, and Josie satisfied Hope to remain on the Salvatore College. They have been even proven flirting and nearly making out in an alternate universe. They’re soulmates, plain and easy.

Finest second: When Hope says she had to choose, and she or he did not select Landon.


Jal and Chris, Skins


Kelly: I do not suppose I will EVER forgive the writers for breaking my coronary heart with these two. They have been polar opposites, however they labored so properly collectively. Chris received Jal to loosen up, and Jal received Chris to take issues slightly extra severely. Chris’s loss of life completely wrecked me, particularly understanding that Jal was pregnant together with his baby and by no means received an opportunity to inform him.

Finest second: When the gang has their very own personal funeral for Chris, and Jal says he was “the bravest boy she ever knew.”


Cook dinner and Effy, Skins


Hannah: I do know Freddie stans are going to offer us hate for this, however I DON’T CARE. Freddie was an ideal particular person and he helped Effy a lot, however their relationship was very one-sided and principally consisted of him saving her (like Lucas and Peyton, ew). Cook dinner was a significantly better match: They have been so related of their injury, and I believe their bond was actually real. They might make dangerous selections collectively, however finally I felt they really wished what was finest for one another.

Kelly: I do know Cook dinner was a large number, however he genuinely liked Effy for who she was. I at all times felt like Freddie idealized Effy and wished her to be some excellent woman, whereas Cook dinner liked Effy by way of the nice and the dangerous. Plus, there was no denying that that they had off-the-charts chemistry. I believe their love was positively probably the most real of Effy’s relationships, even when they have been sort of damaging collectively. Plus, Effy was the one woman Cook dinner ever liked.

Finest second: When Effy jumps in entrance of a truck and Cook dinner pulls her out of the way in which simply in time.

Plus, Alex’s brother’s response to him relationship the quarterback was too cute!

Finest second: After they win promenade royalty and dance collectively.


Rory and Jess, Gilmore Women

The WB

Kelly: Jess wasn’t at all times the best boyfriend after they dated in highschool, however I nonetheless suppose he was an important out of Rory’s relationships, and I believe they positively liked one another. Not solely did they share a ardour for books and writing, however in addition they understood one another on a deeper stage. Rory noticed previous Jess’s dangerous boy exterior and inspired him to do extra in life, and Jess received Rory’s life again on observe not as soon as, however twice. I want they might have gotten again collectively as adults.

Finest second: When Jess comes again to point out Rory his printed novel and tells her that he could not have achieved it with out her.


Nate and Serena, Gossip Lady

The CW

Hannah: Like Marissa and Ryan, Nate and Serena have been simply meant to be, and this was clear from the start. Nate at all times liked Serena, and in contrast to Dan, he was truly match for her (aka he did not stalk and harass her). He was tremendous loyal, however he additionally did not let Serena get away with issues, like simply letting her father go or “needing time” and anticipating Nate to attend. (I used to be so pleased when she got here again from Paris, and Nate was with Juliet!!) They have been additionally each actually formidable and struggled with individuals doubting them because of their appears to be like and background, and each had actually sophisticated relationships with their mother and father. They have been lovely collectively and Dan sucks, finish of story.

Finest second:
When Serena is on the hospital and Nate stays there in a single day to verify she’s okay.


Pacey and Joey, Dawson’s Creek

The WB

Kelly: I do know Joey and Dawson have been the unique plan, however the chemistry between Joey and Pacey was simply simple. They’d a very particular bond and fell tremendous laborious for one another, even when it took them a very long time to understand their emotions. Watching Joey climb onto Pacey’s boat to spend the summer season collectively provides me slightly religion in love. (That “I believe I am in love with you” line STILL will get to me.) They weren’t excellent, however they liked one another by way of and thru.

Finest second: After they dance and Pacey tells her he remembers all the pieces about their relationship.


Santana and Brittany, Glee


Hannah: Santana and Brittany have been SUCH a cute couple, principally as a result of they have been actually finest mates. Santana was the one one who revered Brittany and did not name her dumb (when she lastly did and Brittany cried and stated, “You are the one one who by no means known as me that,” I died slightly inside), and Brittany helped Santana come to phrases with who she was and even have a good time it (who can overlook the “Lebanese” shirt). I will admit I by no means completed the present, however they have been positively one of many issues that saved me watching.

Kelly: I believe these two have been the one couple I persistently rooted for on Glee. They noticed and liked one another for who they actually have been: Santana did not shrug Brittany off as a dumb blonde the way in which everybody else did, and Brittany noticed previous Santana’s imply woman exterior for the nice coronary heart she had beneath all of it. They have been their finest selves round one another, and I am so glad they received their pleased ending.

Finest second: When Santana tells Brittany she would select her over anybody.


J.T. and Liberty, Degrassi: The Subsequent Era


Kelly: To today, I am unable to take into consideration J.T. Yorke with out crying, however right here it goes.

Liberty had a crush on J.T. ceaselessly, after which he FINALLY realized he favored her again. They went by way of so much collectively, particularly with Liberty’s being pregnant, however they at all times liked one another and fought for one another. It kills me that J.T. was actually on his option to inform Liberty he nonetheless liked her when he was stabbed. They deserved to be pleased!!!

Finest second: After they have their first kiss in detention.


Fiona and Imogen, Degrassi: The Subsequent Era


Kelly: Fiona and Imogen was one of many first LGBTQ pairings I bear in mind seeing on TV as an adolescent, and so they’ll at all times be very particular to me. They have been genuinely one of many healthiest relationships on the present: They have been so supportive of one another by way of all the pieces, and their personalities simply labored rather well collectively. On high of that, they weren’t simply girlfriends, they have been finest mates. I at all times prefer to suppose they discovered their method again to one another after Imogen graduated.

Finest second: After they kiss on the ferris wheel for the primary time on the winter carnival.


Drew and Bianca, Degrassi: The Subsequent Era


Kelly: Okay, I do not know what it’s about this present and breaking apart all their finest {couples}, however I’ll by no means forgive the writers for splitting this pairing up! They began off solely relationship as a result of no person else wished to be with them, however over time, they fell deeply in love. Drew took the blame for Anson’s homicide to guard Bianca, and Bianca risked her life with Vince to guard Drew. None of Drew’s different relationships ever in contrast, as a result of I believe he’ll at all times, at all times love Bianca. Like Fiona and Imogen, I prefer to suppose they received again collectively sooner or later.

Finest second: When Drew asks Bianca to marry him within the woods.


Miles and Lola, Degrassi: Subsequent Class


Kelly: Oh man, I may write a whole novel about why I like this pairing and the way these two deserved SO significantly better. They’d such totally different personalities, however they introduced out the most effective in one another and understood one another in a method no person else may. Miles wrote a whole play about Lola and admitted that he would not have survived with out her, and Lola was the primary one that accepted Miles’s bisexuality and did not attempt to change him. Their relationship felt 1,000,000 occasions extra real than Miles’s relationship with Tristan, who did nothing however put him down. In my fantasy, Miles dumped Tristan like a sizzling potato, and he and Lola are fortunately along with their child.

Finest second: When Lola asks Miles if she meant something to him, and he replies, “Yeah, you have been my hope.”


Omar and Ander, Elite


Kelly: Okay, so Season Three did them so utterly soiled, however I nonetheless firmly imagine these two are soulmates. I believe the present put them by way of method an excessive amount of, and I am nonetheless upset that Omar cheated. However I additionally suppose they’ve such an intense, sophisticated bond that simply cannot be damaged. Irrespective of what number of occasions they push one another away, they at all times discover their method again to one another. Ander let Omar transfer in after his mother and father kicked him out, and Omar gave up the possibility to go to New York to be there for Ander whereas he completed chemotherapy. There’s simply one thing about these two.

Finest second: When Omar tells Ander their relationship is not sophisticated, and he kisses him in entrance of all the membership.


Guzmán and Nadia, Elite


Kelly: My HEART. For the lifetime of me, I don’t perceive why the Elite writers constructed this pairing up for 3 seasons and STILL by no means allow them to formally be collectively. Guzmán was a serious jerk once we first met him, however when he fell for Nadia, he grew to become a significantly better particular person. He genuinely cared for her a lot. They have been so clearly meant to be!!

Finest second: When Nadia meets him on the membership and so they hook up in Guzmán’s outdated infinity pool.


Samuel and Carla, Elite


Kelly: When you had advised me again in Season 1 that I might be delivery Samuel and Carla, there is not any method I might have believed you. Their relationship was one of the surprising highlights of Season 2, and it kills me that they principally received tossed apart in Season 3. Though they began off taking part in one another, I imagine they actually genuinely cared for one another and liked one another ultimately. They need to have ended up collectively.

Finest second: When Carla tells him that for a minute, she thought they might overlook all the pieces and have an actual future collectively.


Allison and Scott, Teen Wolf


Hannah: Scott and Allison have been completely meant to be from the beginning. Their relationship simply felt so cute and harmless and highschool, however in one of the best ways. Scott was so affected person with Allison and revered her selections, like when she wished to interrupt up so she may determine her life after her grandfather turned her towards werewolves. The whole lot Scott did was to guard Allison, however Allison was additionally not helpless; she helped him in defending all their mates, even after they broke up. I’ll by no means forgive the present for killing Allison.

Finest second: When Scott says he is aware of they will be collectively once more someday, and Allison says there is not any such factor as destiny, to which Scott responds, “There isn’t any such factor as werewolves.”


Stiles and Lydia, Teen Wolf


Hannah: Stiles and Lydia have been the most effective sluggish burn relationship EVER. They in some way did Seth and Summer time (aka the nerd/fashionable woman trope) higher than Seth and Summer time. They began out as strangers however slowly created a wonderful friendship whereby they each actually believed in one another. Stiles was the one one who noticed and appreciated how sensible Lydia was, and Lydia gave Stiles the boldness (and verbal sparring companion) that he wanted. They fought for one another and saved one another’s lives so many occasions, like when Stiles saved Lydia from Eichen Home and when Lydia fought for everybody to recollect Stiles after he was taken by the Wild Hunt. They have been actually equals, and I am so glad they lastly ended up collectively.

Finest second: When Stiles tells Lydia he loves her.


Danny and Ethan, Teen Wolf


Hannah: Teen Wolf sadly had a legacy of queer-baiting with pairings like Stiles and Derek, however they received issues proper with Danny and Ethan’s relationship. Danny was probably the most valuable cinnamon roll, and all of us knew Ethan was the higher of the twins from the beginning. I liked that he grew into a fair higher man as he was relationship Danny, and it was wonderful to lastly see Danny pleased with somebody. I am nonetheless mad they wrote them off the present.

Finest second: When Ethan tells Danny he is a werewolf and Danny says he is recognized all alongside.


And eventually, Tara and Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The WB

Kelly: It sucks that the present ended this relationship the way in which it did (can we please go away the “Bury Your Gays” trope behind us?!), however Tara and Willow’s love story was nonetheless iconic. They have been one another’s rocks by way of thick and skinny, and, whereas they weren’t excellent, they liked one another so deeply. Their connection was unbreakable. Truthfully, I used to be extra invested in them than in any of Buffy’s relationships.

Finest second: When Willow tells Tara she’ll “at all times discover her.”
