Worst: Hakeem & Camilla, Empire
I mean, there's really no way to hide the mommy issues in your relationship when "momma" is literally the primary nickname for your significant other.
Best: Jake & Amy, Brooklyn 99
They're kind of a mismatched couple, but they agree on all the important things — caring about their jobs, their friends, and wanting to help their community. A great payoff to multiple seasons of build up.
Worst: Kermit & Denise, The Muppets
Not that Kermit and Miss Piggy had the happiest of unions. Still, seeing a beloved children's puppet oggle what was once only a memo that read, "Hey, what do you think a sexy pig would look like?," is deeply upsetting.
Best: Ian & Mickey, Shameless
Everything about Shameless' least-messed-up romantic relationship (though the bar is very, very low) is adorable, sad, and beautiful. Every time things are going semi-smoothly for the pair, they hit another major hurdle. But they obviously love each other in a way that should carry them over everything (let's just not talk about the season 5 finale).
Worst: Bonnie & Enzo, The Vampire Diaries
The Vampire Diaries has stuck its toes in the waters of a time jump, sneaking in moments set three years in the future. In one flash forward, it's revealed one of the show's best characters, Bonnie, is now paired with actual villain Enzo. And every little allusion to the future relationship dropped in the present timeline is like a watching someone fiddling with the car radio when you know they're going to crash.
