12 Twisted Television Love Triangles: Who Will Get Untangled?

by at .  Updated at .

It's Valentine's Day. It's the perfect time to sit back with a bottle of champagne, a box of chocolates and a romantic comedy with the person you love.

But many characters across our television dial have a slight problem:

They aren't sure with whom they want to cuddle!

Indeed, not much drives a series - be it a comedy or a drama - more than a solid love triangle.

From a lawyer who doesn't know whether to follow her head or her heart... to a vampire stuck between two brothers... to a serious scandal in the White House... here are 12 twisted TV love triangles that aren't likely to get untangled any time soon:

    No surprise that almost half of the shows on this list come from the CW.

    REALLY creative writers over on that network :p

    Since the beginning the producers have said the title doesn't fit the story. they are right it doesn't. They should of called it the Secret Infidelity where as Alicia has been the one who can't be trusted and Peter the good guy. She shows how self centered a person can be around all including her own family whom she lied to from the very beginning about WIll and how she crossed the line big time then turns around and tells Peter she will renew her vows again which is another way of paying to lie card again.
    When are the producers and writers going to get it and stop the soap opera garbage and make the show a big stopper or the ratings will keep going down and there won't be a season.6 !!!!

    Hi! I am all for Oliver/Felicity on Arrow. They have a honest relationship built on trust and caring. They have great chemistry and I love how they take care of each other. Oliver can't be himself with Laurel, and their relationship would be based on lies. Plus, I just can't see how Oliver can begin to treat Laurel this way ( sleeping with her sister Sara twice now ) and still be in love with her.

    How many times do people have to realize that Alicia-Will thing is over and will stay that way till the end. Also Peter will win out in the end and it won't be him who gets their butt in trouble, Alicia will come crawling for forgiveness from both Peter and her kids for letting her career come first and them second.

    There is no triangle on The Originals at this point
    Team!Jack
    Couldnt even muster up a pick with Laurel in it I see? What a fail.

    Joel and Zoe are too boring to consider interesting so I'll have to go with Alicia, Will and Peter. The Good Wife writers have been brilliant with these love affairs. But I must add that Zoe and Wade are a far more superior couple than both Alicia and Will or Peter. They just have something we all dream of; it's raw and it's real and no matter how the writers try it cannot be stopped. Now a couple that would definitely steam up the tv screen would be Kalinda and Wade!!!!!
