Blind Item: Which Popular Duo Will Seal the Deal?

The prudes among TVLine’s readership may want to avert their eyes for today’s Blind Item. Wait? What? There are none? Fine, then. Read on, because said item of the seeing-impaired variety involves a couple that a lot of fans want to see get it on, actually getting it on.

Your clues are as follows:

* The duo in question is on a popular network series.

* Their nookie will not be of the “dream sequence” sort — it’s for real, yo.

* Their boosters will be pleased.

* Well, most of their boosters will be pleased. A few will probably grumble that it’s too soon, and the show is skipping too many beats in the pair’s unrequited love story for their coming together to be truly satisfying. (Mind you, a few people were always going to grumble, weren’t they?)

* The hook-up will take place during May sweeps. Okay, technically, that isn’t a clue. But it does seem germane, wouldn’t you say?

For an additional hint, you should follow me on Twitter (I’ll be dropping another clue within the next week). But in the meantime, your guesses below!

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  2. Jbean says:

    Castle is the only thing that comes to mind

  3. allison says:

    tony and ziva?

    • Alicia L. says:

      It’s not Tony and Ziva because come on after seven seasons they would be the last couple I would associate the words to soon with!

      • Jill says:

        The people who don’t want them together will say it’s too soon.
        But as much as I’d like Tony and Ziva to get together after 7 years of teasing, there’s been little substantive build-up.

      • estefania says:

        maybe it is words game , because it will be too soon , for some people it will be too soon, because they want to see tiva together in the ast episode of the last season ,because”moonlighting curse”, so I almost sure that is TIVA, maybe my tiva heart is talking

  4. Z says:

    Definitely sounds like it may be MM and David on Once Upon A Time? Anyone else thinking the same thing? This is what throws my towards Once the most: “not be of the “dream sequence” sort — it’s for real, yo.”

  5. mile says:

    Blair and Dan? (GG) Samcedes?(Glee) Mary Margaret and David? (OUAT)

  6. erica says:

    Can we please have a Morgan/Prentiss hookup before Paget Brewster leaves the show?!?

  7. Linda says:

    Will and Emma on Glee or have they done it yet?

  8. Dawn says:

    Cassie and Adam. TSC

  9. Fabfivefabby says:

    PLEASE let it be TIVA!!!!

  10. Lea says:

    Castle, it fits plus there’s a “yo”

  11. Maria says:


  12. Con says:

    It will absolutely be Jess and Nick, hence the ‘too soon’ part with New Girl being in its 1st season.

  13. Zoyarose says:

    Well, my hope is that it’s Tony and Ziva from NCIS but only one thing would keep it from being them….7 years we’ve been waiting for them to get it on. :)
    So next guess is Deeks and Kensi from NCIS:LA…’s only been 2 years and they’ve been dropping hints on and off all season long.
    I look forward to hearing everybody’s guesses though. :)

    • kmarch says:

      i was waiting to see how long it would take for someone to mention kensi and deeks. that would be my guess. so much of the premise and pull of these other shows is the two main characters getting together. the writers want to avoid “the moonlighting” phenomenon so they string the viewer along for years. NCIS:LA is a much more classic procedural drama and it’s core audience tunes in for a many other reasons besides these two secondary characters and their possible relationship. if any show could take the risk and it not significantly alter the dynamic, it’d be NCIS:LA.

  14. HRU says:

    I am going to guess Beckett and Castle.

  15. Emily says:

    Could it be Cary/Kalinda on The Good Wife? Because I would LOVE that.

  16. AJ says:

    House and Wilson! \o/

  17. Selina says:

    Since he’s saying that there’ll be a cry of “too soon”, and because he’s saying popular *series*, not drama, my guess is that it’s New Girl’s Nick and Jess.

    • Ashley says:

      Yeah, that’s what I was thinking too. He usually will say ‘popular network drama’ or whatever. The unrequited part throws me though. I can’t say that really says Nick and Jess to me.

  18. Adam says:

    Dan and Blair from Gossip Girl are a safe bet. True love :)

  19. Carrie #2 says:

    I wish it weren’t Nick and Jess on “New Girl,” but that’s definitely who I thought of first.

  20. mike says:

    Kensi and deeks on NCIS LA

  21. Devon says:

    Isnt CW considered an “all most” network? That would cancel out Dan/Blair and Elena/Damon. Thank goodness because Elena doesn’t deserve Damon. Girl is so DUMB!

    • Ari says:

      Agree about Delena. I want Damon to be with someone who actually appreciates that he’s (at heart) a nice guy.

      • lacey says:

        I’m torn! Damon is so lovable and I want him to be with the one he loves, which is Elena. Yet at the same time Elena is such a whiny twit and clearly an idiot for not wanting Damon. Can we bring Andi back from the dead?

  22. Ashley says:

    I want to say Tony and Ziva…NCIS.

  23. Jake says:

    Snow/Mary Margaret and Prince Charming /David from Once Upon a Time?

  24. Renee says:

    CASTLE AND BECKETT!!! he italicized “always” AHHH!!

  25. Rose says:

    The ‘too soon’ makes me think it’s for David and Mary Margaret on Once upon a time since it’s only the first season!

  26. cm2 says:

    (please let me be Dan/Blair.)

  27. Soph says:

    My hope exactly! That would be so much fun (but still seems unlikely to happen… ever)

  28. Nancy says:

    Could the fact that “truly” in the phrase “truly satisfying” is italicized by a clue??
    But then, MA also italicized the word “always” in the following sentence.
    Is HBO considered a network station? All I can think of is True Blood. I don’t watch it so have no idea if there is a popular couple that fans want to get it on :)
    Any shows come to mind cos of the words “truly” and “always???”

  29. Zash says:

    Dan and Blair.

  30. Kourt says:

    Castle and Beckett

  31. jbee807 says:

    Sheldon and Amy!

  32. Brad says:

    Kensi and Deeks (NCIS LA) was the first thing that came to my mind.

  33. Ez says:

    Bones! Oh wait…

  34. JohnDoe says:

    Patrick Jane and Lisbon on The Mentalist? Sheldon and Amy on TBBT?
    I’m thinking it will be unexpected.

  35. anne says:

    I’m just hoping it’s either Castle/Beckett or Dan/Blair.

  36. Alana says:

    It’s either Hotch & Prentiss (Criminal Minds) because Erica Messer says it may be too soon for some people to see them together, or Castle and Beckett.

  37. Laura says:

    My first thought was Mercedes and Sam on Glee. I could see that being a BIG jump from where they’re at now. Though personally I think they’re a terrible couple. But it’s just cause I personally don’t like the Mercedes character.

  38. Sara says:

    I hope it’s Damon & Elena. I’ve been waiting for this for three seasons!

  39. Allyson says:

    part of me hopes it is Castle/Beckett…and part of me really hopes it’s not. I don’t know what I want right now. so my guess is Castle/Beckett. I just don’t know how I feel about it yet lol

  40. lynne says:

    I think Castle and Beckett…
    even ‘always’ was in italics the text ;)

  41. Kayla says:

    Did tv not learn from Bones? True fans waited 6 years for booth and Brennan to get together and then Emily deschanel gets pregnant in real life and then all of a sudden booth n Brennan are together. Btw it’s ok to GRUMBLE cause I feel cheated after waiting 6 years. Just saying’.

    • Pash says:

      IMO, they waited too long on Bones. I didn’t care about Booth/Bones anymore. I still don’t really care. They had me through the first three seasons and then it just became so tedious.

      • lacey says:

        They lost me when Booth declared his love and Bones didn’t return his feelings. Then of course the writers came up with that horrible Hannah storyline.

  42. BonesFringeFan says:

    It won’t be Castle & Beckett. Andrew Marlowe and co and determined to keep their relationship moving as fast as a glacier.

    • feliciacastle says:

      well but he said about Bones writers that they took too long time to make Booth and Bones together. since he said it,he has to make castle and beckett together before season 6.

  43. Jen says:

    OK, I know it probably won’t be Destiel… but a girl can dream, right?

  44. Josh says:

    For all those saying Castle and Beckett…why would anyone complain it’s too soon for them?

  45. Tina says:

    Jess and Nick were the first ones that popped into my head, especially at the “too soon” although I don’t think so. I love it! I would also not be opposed to Castle and Beckett though in my mind, definitely not too soon, more like took forever!

  46. EmilieVitnux says:

    I see the word “Always”, I think Caskett! :D

  47. Cee says:

    Would be about freaking time!!

  48. Roxie says:

    Jess and Nick on New Girl!!?? Pretty pretty please!!!

  49. Emily says:
