Year in Review: Best Couple of 2012

at . Comments

The TV Fanatic staff is back with another year-end Round Table.

Following our selections of the Best Villains and Best Feuds from the past 12 months, we now turn our attention to the in-love tandems we love to love, asking each other and then readers:

What was the Best Couple of 2012?

Best of 2012 Logo

Kate Brooks: Aiden and Emily!!! Even if they pushed Nolan and Emily to the side to keep these two together on Revenge, I love it and I love them.

Miranda Wicker: Damon and Elena!! Even if I have to endure this stupid sire bond nonsense

Leigh Raines: Olivia and Fitz from Scandal. Even though they technically aren't together and it's cheating, you can't help but love them together. Especially after that gut wrenching scene in the rose garden from "Happy Birthday Mr. President."

Dan Forcella: I typically don't like to repeat someone's answer, but there is no better response to this than Damon and Elena. Is there better chemistry on television? Or anywhere?!?!

Carla Day: Zoe and Wade on Hart of Dixie are steamy hot down there in Alabama. Despite a small detour, they are on track to be a the power couple of Bluebell.

Steve Marsi: Booth. Brennan. Emily Deschanel's deadpan quirkiness and David Boreanaz's panache make these two a perennial treat to watch, no matter how determined Fox is to ruin Bones' scheduling.

Matt Richenthal: How has no one mentioned Charming and Snow on Once Upon a Time yet?!? Their romance has driven a season-plus of one of 2012's most popular shows.

When Charming Met Snow...
Beckett's Being Filmed
Ben & Leslie On The Bus Tour

Gabrielle Moss: Ben and Leslie on Parks and Recreation! Though the show has been wildly uneven this season, watching their romance finally work out has been one of 2012's greatest televisual pleasures for me.

Christine Orlando: Rick Castle and Kate Beckett on Castle. FINALLY, fans get all of the sweet, fun, sexy, romantic moments we've longed to see for over four seasons. It was definitely worth the wait.

Christina Tran: Jake and Addison from Private Practice! Addie finally gets her happily ever after. They're just so right for each other.

Jim Garner: Amy and Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory. Look no further than last week's episode where Amy got "disciplined" for proof.

Carissa Pavlica: Cat and Vincent on Beauty and the Beast. I know, I wouldn't have believed it either, but their chemistry is fantastic. Being forced apart by circumstance makes their moments together even more bittersweet and beautiful. They could be perfect, if only...

Nick McHatton: The Bromance of Arrow's Colin Donnell and Stephen Amell on Twitter is rather adorable, but best couple of 2012 goes to Parenthood's Adam and Kristina. They have been absolutely amazing this season, as the two people who provide the most support and stability to the family are rocked with the emotional hurricane of cancer. This could be the year of the Emmy for Parenthood thanks to their amazing performances.

YOUR turn, TV Fanatics: Who do you think was the best on-screen couple of 2012?


Castle & Beckett - for Always!


Booth & Brennan Forever!!!!!


Emily and Aiden because of their history and the incredible chemistry, but they are still a relatively new couple, so I say Meredith and Derek - they are going so strong!


It's strange too cause a handful of these couples are new couples, some who have barely gotten their footing... Damon and Elena? I would hardly say that one episode of being together makes them a great couple?
Emily and Aiden? Also very new, and she still obviously has complicated feelings for her exes.
Zoe and Wade... brand new so we dont even know if theyre going to be a good couple.
Jake and Addison? She's so wishy washy with all her's so hard to get behind this couple...which lets face it ADDY will most likely cheat on him too.... shes cheated what...four times? I guess i'm just confused to what makes a couple the "best couple" you would think, good communication, perserverance, loyalty,support, unconditional love, encouragement, etc... And just...longstandingness
Ben and Leslie...yes. Definitely a great couple. Charming and Snow.. yes(except when he was david and she was mary Margaret..that was terrible), Booth and Brennan, sure. Castle and Beckett..sure. Adam and Cristina..yess!! But the others? They should get their chance when they've proven to have lasted... You could have all the chemistry in the world... but suck at being in a relationship...which is the actual hardwork.. Michael and Nikita, the couple from Up all Night, Callie and Arizona(Callie has stood by Arizona through SICKNESS and health), Will and Emma, Meredith and Derek(so supportive of one another), Lily and Bart(LOL JK), And this is not being bias on my fave pairings or shows. I love the PLL couples but they all lie to each I dont think they should qualify. I love chuck and Blair...but they aren't really together etc. I just think being nominated for this category should be an honor, and characters should be worthy of it, and writers who work to create such awesome couples should be recognized.


I'm shocked no one mentioned Meredith and Derek... Especially since this has been their best relationship season...Derek finally became her person. Theyre having a baby. They havent fought. Hes fixing his hand because of her encouragement... theyre a team.. and better then ever.. and shes not dark and twisty anymore because of him


Shamey FTW.


Even though I like Chuck/Blair, I understand that the show is ending. Both Elena/Damon and Charming/Snow are both real life couples. Their chemistry on and off screen radiates.


Charlotte and Cooper from Private Practice!!!!!




For Ever, They're the Best
