·5 min read

We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which TV love triangles ended with the wrong couple. Here are some of their interesting, controversial responses:

Warning: MAJOR spoilers ahead!!!

1.Jane, Michael, and Rafael from Jane the Virgin

"Jane. Should. Have. Ended. Up. With. Michael. Jane and Michael had the golden romance story and were the best couple ever. I really struggled to finish the show after Michael 'died' and Jane dated Rafael."

2.Alex, Jo, and Izzie from Grey's Anatomy

Alex leaves Jo a letter saying he's in love with Izzie

"Alex leaving Jo for Izzie was a stupid, rushed exit storyline."

3.Rachel, Ross, and Joey from Friends

Ross walking in on Rachel and Joey kissing

"Rachel should have ended up with Joey. Ross was a horrible boyfriend, a mediocre father, and a generally unpleasant person. He’s petty and childish, anti-gay, possessive, and — despite three marriages — unable to actually commit. I headcanon that Rachel realizes she made a mistake when she got off the plane and finds a way back to her dream job in Paris."

4.Adam, Eric, and Rahim from Sex Education

Adam and Eric vs Eric and Rahim

"I don't like Adam and Eric because the 'guy bullies other guy because he has feelings for him' trope is very tired, in my opinion."

5.Veronica, Archie, and Reggie from Riverdale

"Veronica should end up with Reggie. She and Archie don’t have any emotional connection, and everything in their relationship is about sex."

6.Jaime, Brienne, and Cersei from Game of Thrones

Jaime and Brienne

"Jaime should never have gone back to Cersei. He should have stayed with Brienne!"

7.Brenda, Kelly, and Dylan from Beverly Hills, 90210

Brenda and Kelly with Dylan

"Don't get me wrong, Luke Perry was my TV boyfriend for years, but both girls should have sent him packing for being so indecisive and coming between their friendship."

8.Ted, Robin, and Barney from How I Met Your Mother

Barney and Robin wedding alongside Ted and Robin

"They spent a whole season revolving around Barney and Robin’s wedding weekend and Ted meeting Tracy just for her to die and for Barney and Robin to break up, all because the show had planned on Robin and Ted ending up together from the start. It would have been so easy for the writers to just change the ending as the show went on."

9.Jackie, Hyde, and Fez from That '70s Show

Jackie and Fez

"Jackie should have ended up with Hyde. The whole Fez thing was so forced and went against her character."

10.Olivia, Jake, and Fitz from Scandal

"If Olivia was going to end up with anyone, it should have been Jake. Fitz was the absolute worst."

11.Miles, Lola, and Tristan from Degrassi: Next Class

Tristan to Miles: "Is there another name for someone who humps anything that moves?" Lola to Miles: "Don't worry I'm cool with the bisexual thing"

"I would have liked to see how a real relationship between Miles and Lola would've played out. His relationship with Tristan was toxic and definitely not my favorite at all — Lola and Miles just seemed to have such great chemistry and natural energy together."

12.Peyton, Jake, and Lucas from One Tree Hill

"Peyton should have ended up with Jake. I get that Peyton and Lucas were supposed to be 'soul mates' and all, but Peyton's relationship with Jake just felt so much more natural and genuine to me. Jake and Peyton made each other better people, and I really think they were the better match."

13.Stefan, Elena, and Damon from The Vampire Diaries

"Neither Stefan nor Damon should have ended up with Elena. Damon should have traveled the world with Bonnie, and Elena just needed some time alone."

14.Hope, Landon, and Josie from Legacies

Hope to Josie: "I had to make a choice, and I didn't choose Landon"

"Both Hope and Josie should have said, 'Forget Landon!' and gotten together."

15.Haley, Andy, and Dylan from Modern Family

Haley and Andy

"Haley 100% should have ended up with Andy, not Dylan. Andy brought out a more mature and caring side of her and respected her."

16.Dan, Blair, and Chuck from Gossip Girl

<div><p>"I’m a sucker for Dan and Blair. Chuck was horrible to everybody, and Blair even admitted she was a worse person around him. With Dan, however, she improved — she realized he wasn't any lesser than her just because of his class, their banter was adorable and fun to watch, and their compatibility was off the charts. I loved that they were able to connect on an intellectual level, and they felt like true equals. With Chuck and Blair, it always felt like one of them had an upper hand, while Dan and Blair felt balanced."</p><p>—<a href="https://www.buzzfeed.com/dykwya" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:dykwya" class="link rapid-noclick-resp">dykwya</a></p></div><span> The CW / Alo Ceballos / FilmMagic / Getty Images / Courtesy Everett Collection</span>

"I know I'm going to get hate, but I would have loved to see a world where Jim ended up with Karen. Pam was pretty boring."

"Effy should’ve ended up with Freddy, and I will never truly be over it."

20.Jess, Rory, and Logan from Gilmore Girls

"As much as Logan progressed and changed throughout the series, he was never 'the one.' I want them to go back and rewrite a better ending [with Jess] — I hated that the show left it open."

21.And finally: the love rectangle between Emily, Maya, Paige, and Alison from Pretty Little Liars

Maya and Emily

"I never liked Paige, and, while I can understand why people ship Emily and Alison, I could never fully get on board with Emison. I wanted to either see Maya miraculously return and sweep Emily off her feet (wilder things have happened on this show!) or just have Emily end up happy and single. She deserved better than both Paige and Alison, in my opinion."
