What Was the Best Love Triangle of 2011-2012?

by at . Comments

Love triangles. Whether you love them or love to hate them, you can't get away from them. They are a TV staple.

So... do Stefan, Elena, and Damon on The Vampire Diaries make your blood run hot? Do you root for Jack or Daniel to end up with Revenge's diabolical Emily? Were you thrilled to see the end of Josh and that triangle on Castle, especially since it paved the way for Beckett and Castle to end up against his front door?

Love triangles draw us in, break our hearts,and make us cheer. When done well, they should have us doing all of the three. 

Which was your favorite love triangle of the 2011-2012? We analyze a few below and then turn it over to our readers...

-------------------------------------------

The Vampire Diaries: Stefan/Elena/Damon - Who should be Elena's one and only? With both pairs having enough heat to melt your TV screen, how do you choose?

Revenge: Daniel/Emily/Jack - At the end of the season, Daniel and Emily's engagement had been called off, but will they stay apart now that a very pregnant Amanda has come back to claim Jack? Looks like this triangle just became a quadrangle. And can Emily keep either man once they know her true identity?

Castle: Castle/Beckett/Josh - We always knew that Castle and Beckett were meant to be together but we also admit that Dr. Motorcycle Boy was easy on the eyes. In the end, Josh may have gotten in a punch but Castle got the girl.

Coffee Talking

Fairly Legal: Justin/Kate/Ben - We were all for a reconciliation between smoldering once-marrieds Justin and Kate but then two things happened.  First, we found out that Justin had cheated. Then we met Ben. The smarmy attorney who once came across like an arrogant jerk now appears completely besotted with the gorgeous mediator. Oh, who do we root for now?

Gossip Girl: Chuck/Dan/Blair - Blair finally made her decision to close out the latest season. But fans may never stop arguing over this one.

The Good Wife: Peter/Alicia/Will - Peter's dalliances with hookers definitely won him the lousy husband award but is there a reason why Alicia's stuck with him? We'll admit the power trip thing is damned attractive but there's certainly chemistry and respect between Will and Alicia. Now that she's tried both, which will she choose?

Rookie Blue: Sam/Andy/Luke - Now that Sam and Andy have admitted to their feelings (finally!) is Luke completely out of the picture? And when he comes back from his task force will he be hooking up with one of Andy's friends at the 15th?

Andy and Sam

True Blood: Eric/Sookie/Bill - Can't get enough of vampires in love... or at least lust? Sookie's had a love connection with both Bill and Eric but now that her portrayer Anna Paquin is pregnant will the show steer away from the books. Could we soon see a human/fairy/vampire baby? So who would be the Daddy to a pair of tiny little fangs?

The Mentalist: Van Pelt/Rigsby/Sarah - Grace ended their fling for the better of both their careers but they still keep shooting one another those doe-eyed looks across the CBI bullpen. However, with Van Pelt trying to get past having to kill her psychotic fiance and Rigsby and Sarah sharing a baby, will these CBI agents ever find their way back together?

Did we leave any out? Let us know in the Comments and vote now between the options given: Who comprised the best love triangle of the past TV season?

Blair and Dan were ridiculous! The worst couple ever..super boring and were a couple for like three episodes. Can't even compare that with chuck and Blair.

You-define-beauty

there wasnt evene a real chuck/dan/blair triangle. it was bullshit. blair was with dan. she was happy for once. end of story. up until 5x22 chuck was far from blairs mind.
if you need a gg triangle here it would be chuck/blair/louis. and that was a frikken bore. even dan/serena/blair was better. and that was pure crap. a very well done triangle was jack/daniel/emily and of course eric/sookie/bill.
not a big fan of the delena/stelena triangle its just... a little repetitive. but still enjoyable.

The Dan/Blair/Chuck triangle never existed. Dan and Blair were a couple and Chuck was in couple with himself, the only person he loves.

peter/Alicia/Will hands down, the tension was palpable and for once it was handles in an adult way instead of the stupid teenage way that most of the TV shows do it.

Chuck/Blair/Dan= WORST LOVE TRIANGLE EVER!!!! dan and blair were such a joke,they are hardly believable as a couple.This triangle just came out of no where.

Chuck/Blair/Dan was such a joke. Even putting Dan's name next to Chuck and Blair's feels wrong- almost as wrong as Dair or S5 of GG was. Ick I just want to forget it.
