There's also the rare case of inconsistent writing, in which these moments are never again adressed on the show. So...what was the point of showing them exactly?

Fans were waiting years for these two to meet, and when they finally do the chemistry between them is undeniable. However, it sucked for viewers to discover that they were unknowingly related during the middle of their sex scene.

Ricky and Amy deserved better than their ending. They may have gotten engaged in a beautiful moment, but Amy ultimately leaves him at the end of the show. The showrunner did come out and say that the two do get married after the series ends, but we'd like to see it rather than being told about it.

6. Jeff and Annie kiss goodbye - Community
