Couples Commentary: Will They? Won't They? Should They?

at . Comments

When Castle and Beckett hit the sheets - or was it the doorframe? - on the Castle season finale, fans swooned as one of the most popular will they/won't they couples on TV settled on the former: They will. They did.

Bubbling sexual chemistry is a staple of TV, but taking two characters from flirting to bedding has often met with mixed results. 

Will it work out for Castle and Beckett? We'll be glued to the screen this fall to find out. Should these other teetering tandems go all the way? Or remain friends/co-workers? Weigh in now!


Tony and Ziva (NCIS) - They're more than just partners, but not quite a couple. Tony and Ziva, known as Tiva by diehard shippers, have done this dance for several seasons.

Will Tony & Ziva Ever Take The Leap?

Can the kick-ass former Mossad assassin and the quick witted ex-homicide detective figure out how to balance their work relationship with a love connection?  Will this potential couple ever deliver?

More importantly, SHOULD THEY?

Castle and Beckett (Castle) - An entire fandom could be heard screaming in delight at their TV screens last May when four seasons of love and lust culminated with a heated kiss against the door and Beckett's fingers entwined with Castle's as she led him to what we can only assume was his bedroom.

Will coupledom kill their incredible sexual tension? Or bring back the fun, flirty banter that got lost in all of the angst of season four? Castle Season 5 kicks off in September and fans are holding their breath to see what happens as Castle and Beckett start the next chapter of their story.


Jane and Lisbon (The Mentalist) - It's been four long seasons since the tortured con man met the tough but beautiful CBI agent, yet hints at any love connection have been a long time coming. 

Jane & Lisbon Investigate a Surfer's Death

Jane's still emotionally traumatized after his wife and daughter's brutal murder.  Will Teresa Lisbon be the one person who can help end his torment and heal his heart?

With Jane muttering a quick "love you" before pretending to shoot Lisbon and the two holding hands at the end of last season's finale, fans have more hope for this couple than ever before.


Jess and Nick (New Girl)- There's undeniable chemistry between Jess and her snarky bartender/roommate but should their friendship take a turn to romance? 

With CeCe and Schmidt taking over the will they/won't they spot at the end of season one, our guess is that fans will have to wait a while to see Jess and Nick come together but we hope it happens... some day.


Jeff and Annie (Community) -  The show may have never intended these two to be a couple but their obvious chemistry could not be denied. With three seasons of flirtations, hesitation, and jealousy behind them, SHOULD THESE TWO FINALLY TAKE THE HILARIOUS PLUNGE?

Did we forget about burgeoning couples? Vote above on the duos included and then leave a Comment below with pairings you want to see move ahead?

Michael, Michael, Michael -- if you think that the end of Season 6 made our government look bad, then the FBI, CIA, State Department, Justice Department and the like running interference for Ari even after he killed Kate makes them look downright stupid. Or treasonous. Or maybe none of the above, as this show is a piece of fiction. And there are far greater things out there capable of making our government and its institutions look bad than one little old TV show.


Michael, at 51 I am a little old to be a kid. But as you get so many other things wrong, I can see how you could get confused over something like that. As for files she gave Ari -- sorry son, but that's a far cry from helping load a gun or supply ammunition, etc., etc. Ultimate bottom line is that the show is never going to go along with you on this imaginary storyline you have going. Because that's exactly where it is located at -- in your imagination. But hey, sounds like it would make a great fanfic. Maybe you should devote some time to writing it.


@Mat Your opinion son. I think I have done pretty damn well compared to you and Michael.


@reality check Har har, hardee har har.


@Zoyarose The reason why the fans and some of the actors have not gotten over it is because it make NCIS and our goverment look bad


@SAM and Michael: Get a room.


It's amazing how some people still can't let the end of Season 6/beginning of Season 7 go. We're going into Season 10, we've moved on, the Team has moved on & the show has moved on, so why can't some people do that? I'm a Tony & Ziva fan but guess what, I don't watch the show just for them, I watch for each & every character, just like a lot of other NCIS fans, because this show is all about the characters & how they interact w/ each other. I'm looking forward to seeing how things play out this season for each character as they'll be dealing with the ramifications of the bombing.


You know that goes both ways right sam you have yet to show fact to your bull shit as well


SAM SAM SAM You are one miss up little kid if you watch the end of season 6 and the start of season 7 after they save Ziva then you would of Know that she admit to helping Ari kill kate by giving Ari files and with help from Jenny a way into NCIS but since your too busy with your Tiva blinds you most likely were to busy taken Ziva cloths off since that what most Tiva fans want.


@SAM love reading your comments. They are so refreshing after reading so much nonsense from Michael.
