We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which TV couples should’ve ended up together but didn’t. Here’s what they said:


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 CW

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


Rachel Green and Joey Tribbiani on Friends

Joey holding Rachel when she's scared, then Joey telling Rachel he's falling in love with her, and then Rachel and Joey kissing


“They had great chemistry until the writers realized that they’d accidentally written themselves into a corner and made up some crap about it being ‘too awkward’ so that Rachel could end up with Ross. Rachel and Joey were done dirty, and you cannot change my mind.” —georgiamc2002


Lexa and Clarke Griffin on The 100

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

The CW

“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 air around 2016, so it was when we def needed more. It was for sure the best ship of the whole show.” —Els


Tina Cohen-Chang and Mike Chang on Glee

Mike sitting in a dance room. Tina appears and she tells him that seeing him dance made her fall in love with him.


“Harry Shum Jr. as Mike and Jenna Ushkowitz as Tina had tremendous chemistry. Even if they barely got storylines or screen time, Mike and Tina had one of the healthiest relationships on the show. I will always be mad that they didn’t end up together.” —tamaravalverde


Barney Stinson and Robin Scherbatsky on How I Met Your Mother

Barney telling Robin their wedding will be legendary. Robin asks why he didn't say "wait for it" like he usually does and he responded, "I've got you. I don't have to wait for it anymore."


“They had the best chemistry and buildup on the show. They even got a whole season for their wedding and proved why they would work as a couple. Then they got divorced…?” —Ana


Buffy Summers and Angel on Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The WB

“He was a cursed vampire, and she’s the slayer — the angst writes itself! My best friend and I still can’t believe that Buffy didn’t show up for the apocalypse during Angel‘s finale. It’s been a decade and a half, and we’re still not over this. Buffy and Angel 4 Ever.” —LatinaLibra1005


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.” —jordin from texas


Penelope Garcia and Derek Morgan on Criminal Minds

Garcia talking on the phone with Morgan and then he surprises her by showing up in person, then they hug.


“They had the best friendship. It low-key broke my heart when he ended up with someone else, but I’m glad the writers didn’t spoil their epic friendship.” —amychackett


Jane Villanueva and Michael Cordero on Jane the Virgin

The CW

“He always treated her better than Rafael did.” —logostones


Kara Danvers and Lena Luthor on Supergirl

Kara promising to Lena that she will always be there to protect her.

The CW

“I do love Kara with Mon-El, and if they do end up together, I’m happy for them, BUT Kara and Lena!! Every single scene they have is almost romantic (no one constantly sits that close to their friend when there’s space elsewhere). Several parallels have been made to other couples, especially Superman and Lois. The love interest is always the one to find out the superhero’s alter ego way too late, and that’s exactly what happened with Lena in Season 5. There is nothing heterosexual about Lena Luthor, so it’s time for the show to just go there before it’s too late.” —monikaaat


Rory Gilmore and Jess Mariano on Gilmore Girls

Jess telling Luke he's over Rory, but stares at her longingly insinuating that he is, in fact, not over her.


“They started off immature but eventually grew up — especially Jess. He encouraged Rory to go back to Yale and get her life together. In A Year in the Life, when he saw her life falling apart, he acted like an adviser. He encouraged her to write a book, and so she did. They were also the only ones I saw who had the same interests. He impacted her life a lot; maybe he was too good for her in the end.” —Daniella


Jackson Avery and April Kepner on Grey’s Anatomy

Jackson announcing at April's wedding that he loves her and wants to be with her and then April and Jackson run away and elope.


“Jackson and April were, hands down, the most robbed couple on television. And for such terrible reasons, too. It was so infuriating to see the writers push April further and further away from Jackson while the show tried to force Maggie and Jackson to happen. It was always such an unnatural and inorganic pairing. I care about chemistry and character, and both were ruined in order to force Jaggie over Japril. I still can’t watch Grey’s Anatomy because of what they did to April…and I’m the type of fan who is willing to trust writers. Not anymore.” —shellezbellez


Bellamy Blake and Clarke Griffin on The 100

Bellamy telling Clarke she saved everyone and now he's able to come home. Then they hug.

The CW

“Bellamy and Clarke from The 100, without a doubt! Even if you take away the fact that the actors, Bob Morley and Eliza Taylor, fell in love and eventually got married, they have the most amazing chemistry throughout the show. The way Bellamy and Clarke refused to lose the other one even to save the human race and literally brought each other back from the dead. Their ending was such an injustice to the characters and the actors, who created one of the best romances in television, even with it never being canon.” —campbells4dbe23c87


Jennifer “JJ” Jareau and Spencer Reid on Criminal Minds

JJ telling Reid she was always in love with him but she was too afraid to tell him earlier.


“They had great chemistry. I wish those characters had ended up together.” —LaurenD


Emily Fields and Maya St. Germain on Pretty Little Liars

Emily and Maya kissing in a photo booth


“They were soulmates and much less problematic than Emily and Alison or Emily and Paige. I loved them together.” —hadasbatetush


Andy Bailey and Haley Dunphy on Modern Family

Andy talking to Hayley and then she jumps into his arms and kisses him.


“The chemistry between Sarah Hyland as Haley and Adam Devine as Andy was monumental! Their characters were total opposites and worked together in the best way. Haley matured and grew so much with him, not only in the relationship but as a woman with career goals who was figuring herself out. After waiting so long for them to finally date, he just left and that was that. She got back together with Dylan, yet again, and completely regressed into the same person she was in high school. With their chemistry and storyline, it made no sense that Haley didn’t end up with Andy.” —katcloud


And finally, Alex Karev and Jo Wilson on Grey’s Anatomy


“They helped each other through so much and really brought out the best in each other despite their traumatic pasts. Honestly, I don’t think Izzie deserved Alex. Alex and Jo should’ve been endgame.” —ajuvv97
