Why Can't I Get Just One Kiss? 8 Crossover Couples I'm Shipping...Priority Express

By Cindy Davis | Seriously Random Lists | April 14, 2014 | Comments ()


Within the dating world of any series, the pickings can be slim. Just look at your world; it’s pretty darned huge, and how difficult is it to find your match? The other night, I remembered Mad Men was about to return (albeit, for only seven episodes this year), and immediately had a thought of Cersei Lannister and Pete Campbell as a couple, together. They’re both vile, despicable manipulators who think the world should revolve around themselves…a perfect pair. Stick that in your craw, eHarmony.com (speaking of which, wouldn’t that particular pairing make a groovy advertisement? Get on it, Draper.)

1. Game of Thrones’ Cersei Lannister and Mad Men’s Pete Campbell


As I mentioned, Pete and Cersei are despicable peas who should be jammed into a tiny (rotting) pod, where they can exist in their own tiny world of machination and greed. They’ll live happily ever after, or self-destruct and either way, who cares?

2. Mad Men’s Peggy Olson and Hannibal’s Will Graham


Here are two inherently kind people who can provide the emotional support each needs and craves. Will would keep Peggy focused on the bigger picture (this is my design), and she’d pull Will out of his own head. I can already see them running the dogs together.

3. Game of Thrones’ Ser Jorah Mormont and Parenthood’s Sarah Braverman


Sarah Braverman clearly cannot be trusted to run her own love life. After being married and having children with an addict, then breaking away, she let the good guy go and seems hell-bound to end up with Hank, a man who has no apparent attractive qualities, whatsoever. What she really needs is a real knight—to save her from herself—and who better than the loyal and lovelorn Ser Jorah? He’d immediately be taken in by Sarah’s beauty and quick wit, advise her on family matters (she could teach him photography) and together they could finally focus on themselves.

4. Justified’s Rachel Brooks and The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon


Imagine looking out your blinds to see that hunk-of-man? Daryl and Rachel are of similar cloth, always ready with a weapon, but thoughtful—contemplative. Rachel would snap Daryl right out of his brooding phase, and he’d teach her the ways of evading walkers.

5. Game of Thrones’ Tyrion Lannister and Sons of Anarchy’s Gemma Teller


Gemma and Tyrion: both misunderstood, sometimes angry…sometimes violent, but underneath it all lurk warm hearts whose beats would easily sync. They just need to be understood and loved for who they really are. Tyrion and Gemma would immediately recognize themselves in each other, and probably fight every single day, trading barbs and wry expressions, before ending up between the sheets in a grand, mad fury.

6. Justified’s Tim Gutterson and The Walking Dead’s Michonne


Similar to Rachel and Daryl, Tim and Michonne both are fond of their weapons, and are outwardly cold and tough. But we’ve seen Michonne’s soft underbelly; she’s broken by losing her family. Likewise, Tim—who’s a veteran—was traumatized by his time in Afghanistan; he needs someone able to understand where he’s been and how to open up to love, going forward. They’re two lost souls, perfect for each other.

7. Game of Thrones’ Margaery Tyrell and Sons of Anarchy’s Jax Teller


No Game of Thrones spoilers in the comments, please! Let’s face it, Joff’s an asshole and this marriage will never last. But Margaery’s soft, and she likes her men hard tough. Jax is the right kind of “manly man” for this clever girl who knows how to calm a situation when it’s really needed.

8. Revenge’s Nolan Ross and Game of Thrones’ Oberyn Martell


Can’t you just imagine the sparks? It might be exhausting for these two sly, sarcastic words men to spend their days trading witty, entendre-filled phrases, but oh how the steam would rise at the end of the day. Nolan could teach Oberyn how to turn up a collar or two, and in return, perhaps Oberyn might invite Nolan to play with the Sand…is it just me, or is it getting hot in here?

Bonus Possibility:

I can’t exactly articulate my reasons, but despite the age difference, I really like the idea of:

Hannibal’s Jack Crawford and Game of Thrones’ Olenna Tyrell


She’s quite a bit older than Jack, but witty and spry; the yin to his yang.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) would be happy to help you find your match.

Let's Say Farewell to a Certain Game of Thrones Character by Reliving the Good Times | Neil Patrick Harris Took Out His Trouser Snake to Promote 'Hedwig and the Angry Inch'

Comments Are Welcome, Bigots and Trolls Are Not

  • BlackRabbit

    Why not Lagertha/Tyrion? He gets a good woman he doesn't have to protect, and she gets a hubby who's not gonna cheat on her and can introduce her to Fun Times.

  • Maddy

    But I already ship Olenna and Tywin

  • Alexander1

    I don't know if it's because I find literally every character in SoA to be a completely horrible piece of shit but to me those pairings seem horrible. Both Tyrion and Margery deserve way better

    My choices for Tyrion would be Emily Thorne so he can have some both beautiful, morally gray but completely psycho and still very intelligent and being able to plot a nice conspiracy together

    And my choice for Margery will also be Emily Thorne. Because you know Margery would prefer a pretty girl over some brute anyday and they are both perfect manipulators who look amazing all the time

    RE:6. Justified’s Tim Gutterson and The Walking Dead’s Michonne

    Isn't Tim gay? Or was that just the internets collective wish?

    RE:2.Mad Men’s Peggy Olson and Hannibal’s Will Graham

    They'd make a terrible couple.


    Alice Morgan and Sherlock Holmes (BBC or CBS version).

  • Bert_McGurt

    How about CBS Watson & BBC Watson?

  • Guest

    CBS Watson could do so much better than sad mustache guy:


  • lowercase_ryan

    Internet wishe - Tim

  • Billybob

    So... this is only shows that are still on the air, right? Because otherwise I thought the internet had agreed that Daryl Dixon belongs with Sarah Connor. I mean, they went to college together (along with Cyclops).

  • Indeed. It's hard to date someone you can't locate on the grid.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I'm sure Rachel would love riding on the back of that SS bike.

  • Pants-are-a-must

    Surprised you're not shipping Hannibal with Melisandre. She gets to fry people for her stupid god of light, he gets to have bbq!

  • MrsAtaxxia

    Upvoted because BBQ season!

  • Pants-are-a-must

    The night is dark and full of burgers.

  • Ugh. I dislike her too much to do that to Hannibal.

  • lowercase_ryan


  • asherlev1


  • JJ

    Can we get a mashup gif of Tyrion slapping Pete Campbell?

  • Ryan Ambrose

    "You don't care about the kingdom! You are already rich!"

    - Pete Campbell

  • MrsAtaxxia

    "Incest? Really? A thing like that!" -Pete Campbell, date three, opening up the Ex File.
