You always want what's best for your favorite TV characters, even if they themselves don't realize what that is.
It's no secret: the 2017-2018 TV season brought some very tortured and broken souls to the small screen.
Instead of cute dates with bae, our favorites have been keeping control of Command, mourning the loss of broken relationships and marrying people for all the wrong reasons.
With so much love in the air this Valentine's Day, we hope some of these familiar faces can find some major (and much needed) lovin'.
They deserve it, dammit!
Klaus Mikealson - The Originals
Klaus is the anti-hero of the series, yet we still find ourselves rooting for him and his happiness time and time again. He's a tortured soul who will rain hell on his enemies, but he also means well for those he loves. In addition to losing Cami, he's now been torn from his siblings and daughter, Hope, by a ruthless curse. Will he ever just find love and acceptance? We hope Caroline can steer him in the right direction before the show ends.
Olivia Pope - Scandal
Gone are the days of sweet and lovable Olivia Pope. Scandal Season 7 brought us a power-hungry political maven willing to ruin every relationship and destroy every last good thing in her ascend to the top. Ultimately, she made the right choice by resigning as Chief of Staff. With all this free time on her schedule will she find love? Or find her way back to Vermont?
Rebecca Pearson - This Is Us
Circa 1998. That's the year Rebecca lost perfect-husband Jack Pearson to a heart attack following smoke inhalation from the house fire. We know she eventually ends up marrying Miguel, but until then, we hope she finds some kind of comfort whether that be in a friend, a loved one or her children.
Antonio Dawnson - Chicago PD
Antonio cannot catch a break. First, his marriage fell apart, then his relationship with Sylvie from Chicago Fire was torpedoed by complications with said ex-wife. His time on Justice was also cut short because the show flopped and he was forced to return to Intelligence, which initially was too "grim." And on his latest assignment, he was used by a fellow cop and forced to neutralize her. If anyone needs love, it's this dude.
Jughead Jones - Riverdale
Everyone has their fair share of troubles in the sticky town of Riverdale, but Jughead Jones takes the cake. I'm not sure if he's more conflicted about his position within the Serpents or with his on-again-off-again girlfriend Betty Cooper. And just wait till he finds out Betty and Archie had a moment and she lied to him about it. It will destroy him more than cleaning up that dead body. Can Juggy just catch a break?
Fallon Carrington - Dynasty
It may seem like "it" girl Fallon has it all, but on the inside, she is so damaged by her childhood and parents. On top of it, she just found out she's being used by two people closest to her: her ex and business partner Colby and his sister and her longtime bestie Monica. When will Fallon realize she already has a soulmate in Culhane, who loves her unconditionally despite her flaws? Just give in to your happy ending!
President Kirkman - Designated Survivor
Nothing about Kirkman's unexpected presidency has been easy, and to top it all off, his wife Alex was just killed in a car accident. It's going to be his cross to bear for the second half of the season, but really, we just want him to finally catch a break and be happy. At least get a "win" with the American people.
Liza Miller - Younger
Liza has been caught up between two men — Charles and Josh — for much of Season 4. Charles' wife has become quite an obstacle, in addition to Liza lying about her age and the fact that he's her boss. Her feelings for Josh are also a problem, especially since he's also confused and just married Clare for papers, right after telling Liza he loved her. Can you say LOVE TRIANGLES? Can she just find love with someone that isn't emotionally damaged and doesn't come with baggage?
Ravi Chakrabarti- iZombie
Ravi has been at the core of the show supporting Liv since she turned into a zombie. He may be able to whip up a mean cure, but his love life is in shambles, especially after his split from Peyton. Now that Ravi may possibly be a zombie himself, will he find a love that's worthy of his enthusiastically nerdy personality?
Alex Danvers - Supergirl
Breakups are the worst, especially when everything was fine and then the decision of children put a wrench in everything. Alex has really been struggling following her breakup with Maggie. As someone who really wants children maybe she can fill that Maggie-sized hole in her heart by adopting or fostering a child?
Shelby Wyatt - Quantico
Shelby's track record with men is pretty abysmal; she dated the whole Haas family — dad and sons included. She also pursued a relationship with her CIA recruit, Leon, while being undercover. Imagine how great things would be if she fell in love with someone who didn't get her in trouble!
Celeste Wright - Big Little Lies
Coming out of an abusive relationship, Celeste is very fragile. Her husband got what he deserved when he was killed, but it doesn't make the coping process any easier. With Big Little Lies Season 2 in production, hopefully, we'll get to see Celeste on the mend and eventually with a man who loves her unconditionally.
Colin Rhodes - Chicago Med
Stressful career aside, Dr. Rhodes' home life and love life haven't been peachy. Now that Robin Charles is out of the picture, maybe he can offer his nurturing personality and charm to a brand new relationship. Possibly with Ava Bekker? You can cut their sexual tension with a knife, and I'd be interested in exploring how these two could help each other grow.
