19 TV Couples That Were Freaking Robbed Of Their Happy Endings, And I'm Still Not Over It

·4 min read

🚨Warning: There are MASSIVE spoilers ahead!🚨

We asked the BuzzFeed Community which TV LGBTQ+ couples were so perfect, they should've ended up together. Here's what they said:

These submissions only reflect the plotlines up to June 2022, since some of these shows are still airing. So, we still have SOME hope!

1.Villanelle and Eve from Killing Eve

Villanelle telling Eve, "Smell me, Eve. What do I smell of to you?" And then they kiss.

"As Phoebe Waller-Bridge said, 'Every moment in this show exists so that these two women can end up alone in a room together.' Every scene they have together is magnetic. Even when they're in different places, you feel the pull and presence of the other."



2.Eric Effiong and Adam Groff from Sex Education

Adam telling Eric, "Please? Will you hold my hand?" And Eric saying, "Yes."

"I've actually really liked Eric and Adam from Sex Education — Adam was a monster in the first season, but when we got to see what was going on behind closed doors, his dad was the actual monster. Eric's such a confident, beautiful angel baby, and I feel like the show handled the slow transition to them becoming a couple really well."



3.Dani Clayton and Jamie from The Haunting of Bly Manor

Dani telling Jamie, "But however much time it is I want to spend it with you."

"There's nothing more romantic than living in a giant haunted house."



4.Darryl Whitefeather and White Josh from Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Daryl telling White Josh, "I don't wanna say I don't like anyone as much as you, but I think I just said it."
The CW

5.Victor Salazar and Rahim from Love, Victor

Rahim telling Victor, "I've never felt more connected to someone in my entire life."

6.Max Baker and Sophie Sanchez from Ginny & Georgia

Sophie telling Max, "Maybe next time you just need to kiss someone that wants to kiss you back."

7.Castiel and Dean on Supernatural

Castiel says to Dean that knowing him changed him, and that he loves him. Then, Cas sacrifices himself to save Dean.

"The show teased it for years and then seemed to ditch the idea during the last episode. It was so upsetting."


The CW

8.Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz from Riverdale

Toni telling Cheryl, "We came to rescue you."

"Cheryl has had such a hard life and deserved someone so great, and Toni was that person. She could tolerate and love Cheryl even when she was sad/mad/vengeful. They were perfect together."


The CW

9.Josie Saltzman and Penelope Park from Legacies

Penelope saying, "I love you Jojo."
The CW

10.Lexa and Clarke Griffin on The 100

Lexa saves Clarke and they hug then Lexa says, "Our fight is not over."

"Don’t get me started on Clarke and Lexa. They had such amazing chemistry, and it was so refreshing to see positive LGBTQ couple representation — it was on the air around 2016, so it was when we def needed more. It was for sure the best ship of the whole show."


The CW

11.Ander Muñoz and Omar Shanaa from Elite

Omar telling Ander, "I want to be with you...kiss you...finish what we started. Don't you?"

"Ander and Omar have some of the best chemistry I've ever seen! They are also one of the most consistent couples and have been together for all four seasons. They've definitely had their fair share of issues, but in a show that switches couples up every season, the fact that they're still going strong says something."



12.Arizona Robbins and Callie Torres on Grey's Anatomy

Arizona finally tells Callie she loves her and Callie responds, "you do?" And then she says she loves her too.

"They were the happiest couple on the show, but after the plane crash, everything fell apart."

13.Viktor Hargreeves and Sissy Cooper from The Umbrella Academy

Sissy telling Viktor, "You have given me the greatest gift of a lifetime. You made me feel alive for the first time."

"They were a secret couple, but you can't blame them, seeing as Sissy was married to a man, and it was the '60s. Their love was beautiful and pure. Unfortunately, they had a lot riding against them, not the least of which was Viktor's habit of bringing about the end of the world."



14.Emily Fields and Maya St. Germain on Pretty Little Liars

Maya and Emily kissing

"They were soulmates and much less problematic than Emily and Alison or Emily and Paige. I loved them together."



15.Shane McCutcheon and Carmen de la Pica Morales from The L Word

Shane and Carmen kissing

"They were a perfect couple, and my heart broke when they split. Jenny was the worst."



16.Jude Jacob and Connor Stevens from The Fosters and Good Trouble

Jude and Connor kissing

17.Willow Rosenberg and Tara Maclay on Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Willow telling Tara that she doesn't feel like she's anything special and Tara replies "No, you are."

"Yes, they had some issues to work through, just like every other couple on that show, but their beautiful relationship was torn apart because of Tara’s death. It still makes me cry."


The WB

18.Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter on Hannibal

Hannibal telling Will, "If I saw you every day forever, Will, I would remember this time."

"Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen had incredible chemistry in Hannibal. I do believe that if the show hadn’t been canceled, they would’ve ended up together. The bond between the two is undeniable."



19.Finally, Rosa Diaz and Alicia from Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Alicia getting out of the car and Rosa Diaz looking wide-eyed.

"It was hilarious to see Rosa tongue-tied around someone she liked (Alicia getting out of the car was a true *chef’s kiss* moment). They were so cute and goofy together — what a missed opportunity!!"
