These crime-fighting heroes were destined for greatness but alas—not destined for each other. We honestly still can’t believe that these guys haven’t ended up together.
Here are our favorite ‘Happily Never After’ TV couples. At least they’ll live on forever in our imaginations. Sigh.
SCULLY & MULDER
(We don’t count the X-Files revival, because I mean…)
Name a more iconic duo. We’ll wait….
Dana Scully’s the reason to Fox Mulder’s daydreams and schemes, the one who grounds him when he gets carried away chasing aliens and the supernatural. The science behind the belief.
Initially, the two of them butted heads over their differences, but soon enough they came to see what audiences always could—they made the perfect pair. Yin and Yang, Scully and Mulder.
“Scully, you have to believe me. Nobody else on this whole damn planet does or ever will. You’re my one in five billion.” -Mulder
BENSON & STABLER
We’re confident enough to say that approximately 100% of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit watchers have waited with baited breath, all these long years, through every dubious murder and crime, to see if Detective Benson and Detective Stabler would finally bless audiences with a friggin’ smooch.
Unfortunately for all of us, it never happened.
The fact that the two actors are such good friends IRL is just another stab wound to the heart.
BRIENNE & JAIME
If there’s anyone who can bring out the good in Jaime, it’s Lady Brienne of Tarth. The King-slayer likes to think of himself as the unredeemable “bad guy,” but we—and Brienne—know that’s not the case at all.
And hey, it still has time to happen.
Would you have believed that Jaime would have saved anyone other than Cersei or his children from being killed? I mean, that’s downright noble. Cersei, look out…
