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?

@AJA Sorry, but I am not just a fan of Ziva. I am a fan of all of the characters on the show. I can appreciate their strengths while not being blind to their weaknesses. In my opinion, the former far outweighs the latter for each and every single one of them.


I agree with NCIS Michael. I would like to see the names of the episodes that you say Ziva said those things in.


@jenna - Sorry that I didn't respond earlier but I was away from my computer. You're absolutely right that I don't like Ziva and don't want to see her in a TV relationship with a character who I find to be interesting and to have integrity, loyalty, and appeal - AKA - Tony. I haven't always liked or defended Tony's behavior toward McGee. Sometimes I think that Tony has crossed the line. But that being said - tptb aren't pushing the angle that Tim and Tony have a secret unrequited love or romantic passion for each other. Ziva has treated Tony in ways that if it was my child wondering whether or not to become involved with the likes of her, no matter how victimized or attractive the she seemed on the outside, I would hope and pray that my child ran far, far away from someone who could become violent and cruelly insulting with so little provocation, self control, or remorse.


@ Michael Since you are apparently the number 1 NCIS fan and know everything can you please list the episodes where you pulled those quotes from please


@ Mat I did not blame Michael for anything I pointed out the fact that he does not respect any opinions which are different to his own.
Furthermore do you honestly think that writers read these forums and decide to drop storylines to appease tiva shippers. GET REAL. If that was the case then Ziva would of been killed off ages ago considering the incessant moaning from the likes of yourself and Michael. Also reread your own comment back and see who is attacking who!!!


@NCIS Im sorry but who is it that always attacking people that don't share their views Not Michael the Shippers are the one who don't respect others opinions they are the reason the whole abby storyline was drop because they did not like that it took away from Ziva they were the one who Bash anyone who like ray with Ziva or EJ with Tony and said how they were not real fan of NCIS its the shippers who have made NCIS go down hill in story telling it is the shipper who made the whole wendy storyline a dull and a bust it is the shipper who have destory every crime show on TV network since the very first crime show. So do NOT! blame Michael or anyone other then the Shippers who only care about one thing and that what THEY WANT


@jaja111 Then let me take the blinds off from you so you can see the light ever since season 6 to now Ziva has said these thing to tony
" your are a worthless *****"
" What woman would date a loser like you"
" You are a loser "
" The world would be better off if you were dead"
" You have no idea how to be a good agent" Ziva abuse may not be seen but it is felt by many people and you can see how it has made Tony wonder if he should even be a agent


@ jaja111 Totally agree with your comment. Michael has no respect for those who do not share the same opinions as him.


@Michael It's obvious that Tony is your favourite character but why do you insist on vilifying Ziva's character just because Tony's character is not written to your liking?
I like Tony too and wish he was not portrayed as the class clown but your Ziva bashing is unneccessary.


@Michael- I love how you can be confident in your opinions yet not appreciate anyone else's. You've mentioned how Tiva fans are only Ziva fans, but I love Tony and Ziva is not "a waste of space". I have seen no Tony bashing, but it seems like all you do is hate on Ziva. Ziva does insult Tony once in a while, but Tony doesn't take offense at that. Friends do that sometimes. Their relationship is neither physically or emoitonally abusive. Maybe you should stop seeing what you want to see and actually watch th eepisodes with an open mind. Try to move on from what happened in season 6. Tony and Gibbs forgave her. Why can't you?
