8 TV duos who should just hook up already

Here’s our list of the inevitable TV couples who just haven’t made it happen yet. But, come on, we all know they will.

We all love a good tease, but for these eight couples, the time has come to finally see some onscreen action. The sexual tension has been built and the relationship has withstood its fair share of challenges; now all that’s left is for these couples to seal that happily ever after.

1. The Vampire Diaries‘ Caroline and Stefan

Of course, this one had to be number one on the list. #Steroline, here we come in Season 6 of The Vampire Diaries. Though Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice Accola) have barely admitted their feelings to themselves, yet alone each other, Lexi pretty much confirmed the inevitable in her discussion with Stefan during the Season 5 finale. Leave it to the dead best friend to make sure Stefan is set on the correct path to romance.

2. Game of Thrones Jaime and Brienne

We just really want to see this one happen on Game of Thrones. They are beyond cute together. Brienne is off fulfilling her quest right now, which means these two won’t be seeing one another for a while, but there’s still more than enough hope. A guy doesn’t just give a girl his sword because he wants to be her BFF.

3. The Walking Dead‘s Daryl and Beth

Yeah, OK, there’s a bit of an awkward age gap here, but that hasn’t kept The Walking Dead from exploring the chemistry between these two and chemistry they have, indeed. Plus, it’s pretty much the end of the world. I think they can scrap social expectations. Obviously, things got a little complicated at the end of the season, but when are things not complicated on The Walking Dead?

4. Revenge‘s Emily and Jack

These two are a decade or so overdue. If only Emily (Emily VanCamp) could let go of that revengenda. Sure, Emily and Aiden have a certain sexiness, and Jack and Margaux have a quaint little charm, but neither are the end game. We think Emily and Jack will finally make it happen in Season 4.

5. The Originals‘ Elijah and Hayley

Stolen kisses are fine and all that, but we’re ready to see Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) out and proud, especially now that she’s ditched the baby bump. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) doesn’t seem like he’s so hesitant on the idea anymore, either, which mean things could actually happen for Elijah and Hayley in Season 2.

6. Sleepy Hollow‘s Ichabod and Abbie

They haven’t even kissed yet, but you know more sexual tension is on its way in Season 2. Sure Katrina is still in this weird, dead, but really not dead, vortex, but Ichabod deserves some happiness in his life. Ichabod and Abbie make a great team. Season 1 made sure we saw that. Now, bring on the romance!

7. Nashville‘s Rayna and Deacon

This one isn’t so much a hookup request, since they’ve done that plenty. It’s more of a “finally, actually get together for real” request. Every time Rayna (Connie Britton) and Deacon have been in a relationship together, it just hasn’t been the right time in their lives. There has to be a point where that changes for these two. We’d love to see them reunite again. Happily, for once.

Rizzoli and Isles' Jane and Maura hang out

8. Rizzoli and Isles‘ Jane and Maura

They are the gayest straight girls we’ve ever seen on TV, and plenty of fans are ready for that chemistry to translate into some romance on Rizzoli and Isles. Though the show has said it isn’t going to happen, we’re going to hold out hope that the show’s writers may just realize one day how perfect they are for each other.
