Seth <3 Blair: 8 More Dual TV Show Pairings We Want to See

By Nadia Chaudhury | Seriously Random Lists | February 19, 2014 | Comments ()


With news that Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf, wait, I mean, Adam Brody and Leighton Meester got married yesterday, bringing thousands of The OC/Gossip Girl fan fiction to life, I dreamed up some cross-TV couples that should exist, at least on the screen:

1. Nick Miller from New Girl & Alex Kerkovich from Happy Endings


They would do nothing but eat sandwiches (and sex — they want that) and ribs in bed, and venture out for the occasional water massages. Gotta wash off the BBQ sauce somehow.

2. Olivia Pope from Scandal & Frank Underwood from House of Cards


She’d get him into the White House in under a year, while he’d let her sleep with the sitting president. Win, win.

3. Lindsay Weir from Freaks and Geeks & Tim Riggins from Friday Night Lights


She always had a thing for bad boys, so why not go for the baddest, loneliest bad there ever was?

4. Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones & Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation


Ron, who we know has a thing for heroines in genre shows, comes close to being enough of a man for the Queen of the Dragons, just close enough (though Ben Wyatt might have something to say about their relationship).

5. Sherlock Holmes from Sherlock & Carrie Mathison from Homeland


Imagine the crimes they could solve together, with his mind palaces and her wall of evidence and clues and their absolute insanity.

6. Raylan Givens from Justified & Lana Kane from Archer


One’s animated, one’s live action, but two badasses can make for fun times, especially if it involves being on the wrong side of the law.

7. Annie Edison from Community & Ted Mosby from How I Met Your Mother


The two know-it-alls would have a great time correcting other people’s pronunciations.

8. Lorelai Gilmore from Gilmore Girls & Nate Fisher from Six Feet Under


They are, in fact, a real life couple, stemming from playing sister and brother on Parenthood (eww), but their TV counterparts make sense together: she is light with coffee and nonstop chatter, and he is dark with, well, running a funeral home. They balance the static.

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • chanohack

    Lindsay Weir and Tim Riggins is BRILLIANT. Lorelei Gilmore and Nate Fisher is yucky!

  • Berry

    Frankly, I think Lorelai deserves better.

  • loo shag brolley

    It's too bad Lorelai and Don Draper didn't work out. Theirs would not be a healthy relationship, but I would watch the crap out of it.

  • Berry

    The annoying wine guy was DON DRAPER? I never realized. How did I not recognize Jon Hamm in that? It really is him, isn't it? This changes everything.

  • I'm going to need to read some fanfic about #6 RIGHT NOW.

  • Art3mis

    I love this post but take serious issue with Dany and Ron. She is definitely pro big-government -- she basically wants to be a benevolent dictator that mothers her subjects. Ron would so not be cool with that. Plus EVERYONE seems to know her business. He wants a lady he can live incognito with in the woods, not one who attracts adoring mobs while walking in the local market.

  • Maddy

    I love how seriously you have thought about this and I completely agree

  • e jerry powell

    What exactly is wrong with ribs in bed?

  • Maddy

    No way Ron Swanson would put up with Dany 'Where are my dragons?!?!?! Targaryen

  • emmalita

    She does seem a little young for him, but it is amusing to consider. I would like to see how Ron Swanson would handle one of the slave cities.

  • Maddy

    I guess Olivia Pope and Frank Underwood balance each other out by both being equally horrible people.

  • Dumily

    Nadia, what have you done to me? I'm definitely going to spend the rest of the day thinking up dream tv couples. Since I've decided to split up Logan and Veronica, can I set up Logan with Virginia Johnson? Yes, there is the few decades separating them, and the fact that in real life she married her research partner. But based just on personality, they would be great together. She'd handle both his outrageous violence (see Ethan) and emotional unavailability (see Bill) easily, and he wouldn't feel like he had to protect her all time. Plus he'd be great with her kids (that one episode where he had to hang out with the 10 year old girl and then they played 98 Degrees on the radio and I felt uncomfortable?). Also, again two actors I'd like to see in a love scene.

  • I'd have to see it to be sure but I could totally see Jason Dohring and Lizzie Caplan having a good back-and-forth chemistry. I like this (and your Veronica/Lip pairing was also inspired).

  • Dumily

    I must be better at justifying things than I thought because most of this is just random pairings of people I want to make out with. Like I just played a mean game of Fantasy Madlibs. "Dumily would like to see (person) stick their (thing) into (person)'s (thing)."

  • Berry

    I had to upvote you, because that's amazing, but at the same time I want to down-vote you, because shut up, Logan and Veronica belong together, okay??? Okay.

  • emmalita

    If you have a kickstarter for that Dumily's Fantasy Couple Madlibs, I will donate.

  • BendinIntheWind

    Is the Khaleesi going to die her hair? Because otherwise: hell no.

  • Dumily

    So I love Logan Echolls and hope he lives happily ever after forever, but can I say Veronica Mars and Lip Gallagher? Bless Logan's sweet little heart, he just wasn't smart enough for V Mars, and his beating people up antics would eventually wear on her. Also let's just skip right over the fact that Piz and his dopey eyed nonsense would bore her to tears. Lip is clearly smart enough, has his own rough family background complete with substance abuse problems, and while he acts out physically at times, it's usually against objects instead of people. Once they've both dulled the axes they have to grind and settle into a quite domestic life, I see them being really happy together.

  • Art3mis

    I want to like this, but I can't see it working. Lip is the kind of guy who is going to cheat on his girlfriend at least a couple of times before he gets his shit together; Veronica has severe trust issues and no tolerance for that nonsense.

    I want to see Veronica with Tyrion Lannister, who is totally loyal to the right woman and smart and scheme-y enough to keep her interested. Lip could get with Dany; if anything will straighten him out it's knowing that dragons are waiting to flame him if he screws it up. Plus, I think a dose of Gallagher initiative would be a welcome kick in the pants to Dany's current stagnation.

  • Dumily

    I want to support this, but . . .
    1.) I'm not sure that Lip will be a cheater. Granted he did cheat on Mandy, but she was a rebound and he cheated on her with the girl from whom he was rebounding. Lip needs someone similar enough to Karen that he's interested, but different enough that the don't fall into the same dysfunctional routines. So someone smart, tough and powerful without being a crazy, manipulative bitch.
    2.) Given that criteria, Dany seems like a good choice, But I think she would be too preoccupied with getting the Iron Throne, and Lip would feel neglected. He needs someone dedicated and emotionally available without be clingy. Dany seems too cold to me. Veronica would be open without taking any of his shit, Strong enough not to need him but able to admit she wants him around. Speaking of my girl V Mars,
    3.) She and Tyrion would be fine together, but his family would totally screw things up. Tyrion himself is trying to do right by Kings Landing, but the rest of the Lannisters are trying to do right by the Lannisters. She would see them as bullies, and eventually lose respect for him if he continues to not stand up to them. It wouldn't be enough for her that he's secretly working against them, she's eventually demand they cut all ties. Girl does not team up with people who take advantage of the little guy. (No pun intended.)

    Also the whole "How would they react to dragons?" thing keeps screwing up my picture of their respective relationships.

  • This is brilliant.

  • Dumily

    Plus on a selfish note, I'd really like to see those two actors in a love scene.

  • Guest

    Britta Perry and Will Graham.

  • I didn't even know they were dating so my mind is too broken to come up with any more pairings.

  • Sarah Weissman

    Mellie Grant & Claire Underwood would be the ultimate power couple.

  • Guest

    Annie Edison & Ted Mosby ?

    I'm tiring of Annie's schtick but I wouldn't curse Ted on her or anyone.

  • Dumily

    Fellow Pajibars, I need your help. On a scale from 1 to 10, how weird is it that I really want to see Lana and Raylan's sex tape?

  • emmalita

    Wait, is 1 really weird, or not weird at all? I think it's not weird at all, but I don't see them lasting as a couple unless Raylan really steps up his game. I mean, he would seem like a grown up after Archer and Cyril, but he isn't Mr. Commitment. Of course, if anyone was going to be able to kick Raylan's ass (besides Art), it would be Lana.

  • BlackRabbit

    And at The Moment she will scream "Danger Zone!"

  • Dumily

    Per. Fection.

  • HJ

    Oh it's not weird at all.


  • Dumily

    I'm pretty sure cartoon porn is fine right up until an octopus shows up.

  • competitivenonfiction


    Though I do have a serious adult crush on a few animated characters, so you might not want to take my word for it.

  • NateMan

    I would nail the HELL out of Cheryl\Carol\Cherlene. You just know you'd have to enter some sort of witness relocation thing afterwards for your own safety, but the sex would be so worth it.

  • Dumily

    I dressed up as Cheryl/Carol/Cristal/Cherlene for Halloween a couple years back. It was just under Where's Waldo as my favorite costume ever.

  • NateMan

    That comment along with your Rob Ford avatar is a creepy combination. :)

  • Dumily

    Avatar?! Hell no, I'm built just like that guy. You have no idea how hard it was to find a pencil skirt that fit over my big boy hips.

  • NateMan

    Gotta smoke that image right the fuck out of my head when I get home.

    I never meant to upset you, but I'm glad we'll at least get a productive buzz of out this. Take a puff for me.
