The edges of our seats endured some extra wear and tear this year, thanks to a handful of relentlessly dramatic TV couples.
From the horny halls of Abbott Elementary to the sensual shires (?) of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, these on-screen pairs refused to let us rest until they squeezed every ounce of emotion out of us. And some of them aren’t even official couples!
As with any year-end list, this collection of couples is a spoiler minefield, so proceed with caution if you aren’t caught up on any of the following shows: Abbott Elementary, All American, Bridgerton, Euphoria, Fire Country, Ghosts, Good Trouble, Heartstopper, Law & Order: SVU, Legacies, Loot, Lord of the Rings, NCIS, NCIS: Hawai’i, The Resident, The Rookie, Severance, The Sex Lives of College Girls or The White Lotus.
Read on to see which couples kept us in their clutches all year, then drop a comment with your own additions to our list. Which pairs did you obsess over in 2022?
