Let’s talk about romantic reunions, shall we?

I lead a very… single life. So, I love when I can watch TV and see relationships fall apart and come back together. Yes, they break up and it hurts like a bitch… But, sometimes, they get back together and everything is beautiful and right in the world (even if just for an episode). There are more couples on this list than I realized before I started writing them out, but I’m only going to name the first ten that came to mind. 

Leslie and Ben- Parks and Recreation

image

I mean, come on. After nearly an entire season of watching these two fall in love, they only got to be together and happy for, like, two episodes. And then they were both miserable for far too long. Neither of them deserve to be unhappy for even a second and as I mentioned before, they were miserable. But, then Leslie spoke up and Ben took action and the kiss that followed was swoon worthy. 

Casey and Cappie- Greek

image

I was rooting for these two since their ill fated hook up in the pilot. Cappie was clearly still in love with her and Casey was dating that douche, Evan (note: I loved Evan by the end of season 2, if not before). Watching Cappie pine for her while she and Evan continued their descent into Greek Row royalty was hard. After seasons of the two of them denying their feelings and dating other people and not going after one another when they should have, one Thanksgiving night, Cappie walked Casey back to ZBZ and the most excellent exchange occurred. 

Carol and Doug- ER

image

I can’t say much about this without going into a tailspin. I mean, it was CAROL AND DOUG. They always belonged together. They were meant to raise their girls together. And, so, when Carol finally went to Seattle, my little heart didn’t stand a chance. 

Hannah and Adam- Girls

image

I don’t know what it is that makes me love Adam so damn much, but I do. And I love to hate to love Hannah. After Adam told her he loved her and they broke up, I was actually okay with that. I don’t think I had been completely won over by either of them. Then, season two happened and things got really dark, but we also really got to see and understand more of Adam and Hannah. He was the only one able to pull her out of her breakdown and the way he did it was so romantic and crazy and… Adam. It was exactly what you’d expect of him at that point in the story.

Lorelai and Luke- Gilmore Girls

image

These two make up one of my all time favorite couples on television. When they broke up after Emily and Richard’s vow renewal, I was gutted. Neither of them took their breakup well at all. How could they? They’re meant to be. They broke up a second time, but I’m focusing on the first one because season 7 is still a little difficult for me to stomach. Plus, their whole relationship in season 5 was just… better, which made that initial breakup much harder for me. But, that kiss when Luke showed up at her house? Whoa, baby. 

Snow and Charming- Once Upon a Time

image

Broken up by a curse only to end up on the other side as a single school teacher and a married coma patient. Mary Margaret and David knew they were in love, but didn’t understand why it was so consuming, so intense. They didn’t understand who they truly were. Snow White and Prince Charming are the truest of true love and they were torn apart. It took 28 years and their long lost daughter to bring them back to reality and reunite in the street of Storybrooke, ME.

Peyton and Lucas- One Tree Hill

image

I didn’t finish this show for the sole reason that these two left it. Seriously, I got two episodes into season seven before throwing in the towel. That says a lot. For a long time, I thought I wanted Lucas and Brooke to end up together, but then they didn’t and Lucas and Peyton finally got together. The two of them really started to make an impression in season five, years after they had broken up. Therefore, their reunion in the very beginning of season six was perfectly timed and a long time coming. 

Veronica and Logan- Veronica Mars

image

Do I want to focus on their reunion in season 2 or their ultimate reunion in the movie? How about the movie? The two of them had been through three seasons of ups and downs plus nine years of “radio silence,” so it was a great relief to see them reconnect as adults. Yes, the emotional roller coaster that brought them together in season 2 made that reunion very meaningful and sweet, but they had so much growing up to do. 

Rachel and Ross- Friends

image

She got off the plane. SHE GOT OFF THE PLANE. After ten years of will-they-won’t-they, breakups, and one night stands, Rachel decided not to move to Paris. She decided to be with the man she loved, the man she always loved, so they could be together and raise their daughter together. Who didn’t squee with delight when they slept together the night before she was supposed to leave? Who didn’t fall into a puddle of tears when she got back on the plane? Rachel getting off the plane was the best thing that could have happened and, of course, they had to end up together. It was Ross and Rachel, after all. 

Andy and Sam- Rookie Blue

image

Obviously, I had to include this one. It’s so good, so important to me, that I had to end the list with it. The crap these two have been through in five seasons is enough to make even the sanest person weep. I’m far from sane, so you best believe I wept every time these two even looked at each other. It took seven episodes for them to kiss, one phone call to send her running, two seasons to be on the same page, two suspensions to tear them apart, one episode for them to work on starting, one death to rip them and their already broken hearts to pieces, one undercover assignment for them to “move on,” two ill-fated relationships to make them realize what they were missing, and one gunshot wound to the abdomen to bring them crashing together. Even then, it wasn’t smooth sailing. It took half of season five to get them to open up and really show each other how they felt. And, oh my god, it’s all been worth it. SO WORTH IT.

Let’s talk about love triangles

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do my favorite or least favorite love triangles, mainly because I hate the whole trope. But, there are some triangles that work out for the best and others that are just used for drama (lookin’ at you, Rookie Blue). So, since I don’t know which list to do, I’ve decided to do a list of the love triangles that made me FEEL the most– good or bad.

Sam/Andy/Nick- Rookie Blue

You knew I was going to do this one, didn’t you? This is definitely one I hate. Without question, Nick was made a romantic prospect just to make waves in the McSwarek story. Well, joke’s on you, Nick Collins. Sam and Andy came out WAY on top and slayed it throughout season 5.

Pacey/Joey/Dawson- Dawson’s Creek

I don’t like Dawson as a character, so I especially don’t like him as a love interest. However, I see why this triangle was so difficult for the characters involved. And, even though I know in my heart that Pacey is the right man for Joey, I understand the arguments in Dawson’s favor. I don’t agree with them, but I get them.

Ross/Rachel/Joey- Friends

This whole storyline was a joke, right? A sick, sick joke?

Summer/Seth/Anna- The OC

Oh, Anna, I really liked you. And you made a lot of sense at one point. But you and Seth were just way too similar. And Summer and Seth had that whole opposites-attract-thing going on. Plus, the chemistry was just there for them where it wasn’t for Anna and Seth.

Baze/Cate/Ryan- Life Unexpected

Who remembers this show? I loved it so hard. And, from day 1, I was rooting for Baze and Cate to get their stuff together and figure it out. I mean, sure, they hooked up once in high school and it resulted in a baby that Baze didn’t even find out about until 16 years later when said baby showed up on his doorstep, but Baze and Cate were meant to be. It was especially obvious when you threw Lux into the mix. They were a family and, sorry Ryan, this story ended just as I wanted it to (albeit, a little too soon for my liking).

Jess/Rory/Dean- Gilmore Girls

Dean was perfect, right? Wrong. I hate Dean. Jess was perfect? Not at all. He was terribly flawed. But that’s why I loved him. He and Rory just made sense. They had so much in common, but were also so different. Yeah, he bailed. And, yeah, it was wrong. But, if this show were to ever get a follow-up, they need to happen. The last we saw of him, he was exactly the man that Rory Gilmore deserved. And the last we saw of Dean… I don’t even remember because his character was so insignificant to me.

Danny/Mindy/Cliff- The Mindy Project

I thoroughly enjoyed Mindy lusting after Cliff. Really, I did. And I also liked that it made it so much clearer to Danny how he felt about her. This is a love triangle that I was happy to get behind. And even happier because it ended in my favor! Can’t wait to see how Mindy and Danny fare in season 3!

Aidan/Carrie/Big- Sex and the City

I love Aidan Shaw so much it hurts. Therefore, this love triangle kills me. Carrie had, in my opinion, the best man when she cheated on him with Big. And then, she got a second chance with him. But, Big was always an issue. But he’s not even, really, the reason they broke up the second time. I mean, probably he was on some level, but she just couldn’t marry Aidan. Fine, I get it, whatever. She loved Big. He was the love of her life. Blah blah blah. #TeamAidan

Logan/Veronica/Duncan- Veronica Mars

Notice, I didn’t do Piz? Veronica’s relationship with Duncan was more troublesome and, had he stuck around, would have continued to be. Logan and Veronica belong together. I truly believe that. Duncan, though, was a serious contender up until that whole baby-with-Meg-thing. Who knows what would have happened if Duncan didn’t kidnap Lily? Would that what-if sequence in the graduation episode be accurate? I don’t know. I hope so…

Ted/Robin/Barney- How I Met Your Mother

Don’t even get me started on the huge disappointment that was the series finale. Ted and Robin never belonged together. I stand by that now more than ever. And I actually really liked Robin and Barney together. They deserved a chance and they got it. And it was ruined so Ted could end up with a woman who never really seemed to want to be with him…

Let’s talk about the rest of the summer

I’ve been away on vacation, so sorry if this blog was a little quiet the last week or so! 

Now that Rookie Blue is over (sad face), I don’t have much to talk about anyway. I started a rewatch of The OC, but didn’t get very far. I need to finish Arrow and Scandal. I’ll write posts on each of those when (IF) I finish them. 

According to my trusty calendar, my first wave of Fall shows begins the week of September 15, so I’ll be blogging up a storm come then! 

Up until that point, though, I do want to do a couple of list posts (like my First Kisses and Favorite Friendship posts). It’s just a matter or figuring out what it is I want to list. If you’ve got ideas, please let me know!

Let’s talk about Rookie Blue- Everlasting

Is it weird that I’m not really worried about that very last scene? Like, I know Rookie Blue‘s timeline has always been iffy at best, but… Yeah, I’m not too concerned. Maybe I’m just in denial, but I really don’t think that’s the case.

  • That scene with Sam, Andy, and Marlo was pretty awkward, though, huh? I kind of loved seeing Sam squirm like that. But, I think, the most important part of the whole scene was the fact that Andy told Sam why she was uncomfortable with Marlo being around and her bringing Sam coffees. And I LOVED that Sam insisted that her sudden reappearance would not ruin his honeymoon phase with Andy. I mean, these two are growing up right before our very eyes and I love it so much.
  • Ted McDonald is still on the loose when the episode starts out. And he’s running amok all over the place, putting bombs on judges cars while they’re off getting married. So insensitive. He’s after the judge because she was in charge of the case against the bomber that killed Ted’s son and and Ted’s sure the whole thing was the police’s doing. Well, Andy and Oliver get to the wedding in time to make sure no one gets hurt while ETF Bailey and his men disarm the bomb that was planted on the judge’s personal car.
  • Oliver and Andy find Ted at his son’s grave and bring him in. You know, if there’s one thing I love more than a McSwarek partnership, it’s a McShaw partnership. They kick ass and take names every single time. I love that Oliver hit the streets even though John Jarvis didn’t want him to. That’s the thing about Oliver, though, he’s a blue shirt at heart. And he’s damn proud of it. I love Oliver so much!
  • Back at the station, while Sam is questioning Ted, he finds out there are more bombs. So, Marlo and Dov are geeking out over the Intelligence software while Andy and Traci figure out that the tip Duncan got was actually from Ted McDonald himself. That leads them to figure out that Ted’s not targeting the people responsible for his son’s death and the dropped case, but he is targeting their children. Sick, right? An eye for an eye. Sam somehow gets him to give up the location of the next bomb and Oliver and Chloe go and take care of the teenage boy and his friends. 
  • Andy’s back at the station at this point, filling out the paperwork necessary for her and Oliver’s bust. At one point, Sam goes to ask Marlo a question about McDonald’s computer and hard drive and Marlo sends Andy off to pick it up in evidence. At this point, she and Sam have another frank discussion about what is going on with Marlo and how Andy feels she’s trying to undermine her. As much as Sam doesn’t understand the ways of women, he does want to. Instead, he just goes back to work while Andy goes up to evidence.
  • He’s back with McDonald when an alarm starts sounding, though, and no one on the first floor seems to know what’s going on. All of a sudden, officers run down the stairs and Sam runs up them to see what’s going on and where Andy is. When he gets there, the whole floor is black and covered in soot. A bomb went off in evidence and Sam fights his way through the mess to get to Andy. She was in the room, but is totally fine. She just can’t hear very well, so it take Sam a bit to find her. When he does, she asks if he’s crying and he claims it’s only the smoke. He was sure she was dead. He was terrified. 
  • When he gets back to Ted, he’s slit his wrists and is dead in the interrogation room. Chris (oh yeah, Chris is back and he seems to be back to normal. He and Sam talked about it and he’s… dry)is sure that he searched McDonald in booking, but he’ll take the blame if he has to. Because if he messed up, he knows enough that he needs to man up. 
  • Some other goings on at 15–
  • Gail told Holly about adopting Sophie just as Holly was about to ask her to move to San Francisco. Things clearly aren’t looking good for these two. But, I’m okay with it honestly. Gail deserves to be happy and I think Sophie will do that way more than Holly.
  • Nick ran into that lady that bought his toothbrushes a few weeks back. And then he stalks her to a coffee shop. Then, they make out on the street. And he’s looks like he’s about to get some good lovin’ until she finds out he’s a cop and bails. What the hell? If I was making out with someone like Nick Collins and found out he was a cop, I’d be way more inclined to keep making out with him. 
  • Dov and Chloe are dunzo. She tries to get him back with a little red dress she was planning on wearing to the commissioner’s gala, but he’s not having it. Marlo asked him if he loved her and he does, but he can’t trust her. Marlo seems to think that’s okay, that they can work through that. I don’t think I agree with her, but I do hope the two of them work it out.
  • And this is when Dov finds a sonogram on a desk that Marlo was working on. We don’t know who it belongs to, but I think we’re supposed to believe it’s Marlo’s and that we’re supposed to believe it’s of a baby that belongs to Sam. This is what I’m not worried about. I don’t think Marlo is pregnant with Sam’s kid. She’d either already have given birth or be about to pop. She sure as hell didn’t look like she was about to pop. And if she did have a kid and it is Sam’s, how could she not tell him months ago? I mean, yes, it’s possible, but I just don’t think it’s the case. Why the hell would she just leave it on a desk? Like, really? 
  • Oh, and are they setting up a relationship with Traci and ETF Bailey? They spent the whole episode talking about fairytales and he seemed like he wanted to be the reality he told her to start living in…

The only thing I’m worried about is surviving another Rookie Blue hiatus. Oh, and the fact that 5b might be the last season. I need more than 11 episodes. I just really, really do.

Let’s talk about Rookie Blue- Fragments

It’s times like these that I hate being so in love and obsessed with something. One more episode is not enough to satisfy my need for Rookie Blue. Two parters are the worst, too, because I’m just supposed to sit here for a week and wait for a resolution?! And then another nine months for the resolution to the finale? No, not okay!

All I want in life is an ongoing stretch of brand spankin’ new episodes of Rookie Blue. That’s it. That’s the dream. Sigh.

On to last night’s episode, though… 

  • Sam offered Andy a key to his house (apartment? condo? I don’t actually know). She didn’t take it. Instead, she claimed she was a stallion and slapped his ass. Oh, how I long to be that hand. Sorry, sidetracked… She later told Chloe it was because she didn’t want to mess anything up because things are really good. Which they are, obviously, we’ve seen that over and over again. But, come on, McNally, take the key to his heart that just happens to open the front door. That’s an offer you can’t refuse.
  • So, there was an explosion in a parking garage and Andy and Chloe were the first on the scene. They saw the suspect fled, not knowing he was a suspect at the time, and the whole city was on alert for any other bombings. ETF Bailey was on the scene, obviously, and we saw him and his team flee to one in the middle of an intersection. This time with casualties.
  • They think it’s the Russian mob targeting the Irish mob. Alas, it is that guy from Moving Day whose bike had been stolen. The one that was really anti-cop. Yeah, it’s him seeking revenge for the death of his son four years earlier. And it’s Duncan who gets the tip and goes to bring him in. Alone.
  • Yes, little Duncan Moore has his badge and his gun back. After requesting to ride with Andy, he ends up with Nick, but leaves them both at the station while he goes to investigate. He’s trying to show them he deserves to be there. But he really doesn’t. He’s really stupid. And he ends up with a wrench to the face and handcuffed to a truck that just happens to have some explosives strapped to it.
  • Nick is the one who is in charge of defusing it. There’s only seven or so minutes left on the timer and ETF is at least ten minutes out. Bailey talks him through it, though they’re not quite sure their tactics will work. Thankfully, it does, and both Nick and Duncan get out unscathed. So, it’s time for the Nick/Andy talk.
  • Yeah, their relationship was brought up for the first time in weeks. And it was Duncan who did it– he brought it up to Nick as a way to connect them. Nick brought it up to Andy as… I’m not sure why he did. But I’m kind of glad that he did. Because when she asked if they were okay and he said it depended and asked if she was happy, you could see how genuinely she meant it when she told him that, yes, she was happy.
  • That is until Marlo Cruz shows up. Now as an Intelligence officer. Poor Sam, you could sense the discomfort when he was standing with his former girlfriend and current love of his life. And Andy is ready for the case of Ted MacDonald to be wrapped up so that Marlo can go back to work and she can finally accept Sam’s key. (I embellished on that last part, but I stand by it)
  • Oh, and Dov found out about Chloe deleting her video footage. Which means she had to tell him about Wes kissing her. Let’s just say Dov didn’t take that well. Can we blame him?
  • Gail and Holly? Where did that come from? I’m so confused, Holly. But, hey, if that’s the way they want to play it, fine. Gail’s got bigger fish to fry. She’s only adopting Sophie! Who knows if she’s got what it takes to be a mother, but she clearly cares about that little girl. Change is a comin’.

So, obviously, this case is far from over. Ted is missing and hell bent on his revenge. Who knows where he’s headed and who is in the crossfire. 

After the promo:

Actually, it kind of looks like Andy is in his crossfire. In the station. So, the whole station is in danger. Fantastic…
