When the CW’s sci-fi series The 100 introduced Lexa, a feisty warrior woman, it didn’t take long for fans of the show to immediately start shipping her and main character Clarke as “Clexa” and imagining them together. To their delight and surprise, however, the show actually had the two getting close and exchanging a steamy kiss. It’s hit complications but the third season seems to be pushing the two more together with Clarke doing a hot love scene with another woman to show she certainly swings that way. This came not long after the producers of the animated series The Legend of Korra basically confirmed that the finale ended with Korra and best friend Asamai together.
TV series have long played with the idea of two main female characters who can be more than “just friends.” The advent of the Internet coincided with the debut of Xena and thus the Sapphic following for Xena and Gabrielle grew huge. It’s continued since for various TV show pairings, from Olivia Benson and Alex Cabot of Law & Order:SVU to even teen comedies like Tori and Jade on Victorious. The fact some shows seem open to confirming these as for real gives hope some of these “dream” pairings can become reality. Here are 10 current TV female friends we’d love to see take that extra step and reward the dreams of fans while making sense for their show.
10 Jessica Jones and Trish Walker - Jessica Jones
9 Emma Swan and Regina Mills - Once Upon a Time
8 Aria, Hanna, Emily, Spencer - Pretty Little Liars
7 Stella Gibson and Reed Smith - The Fall
6 Tatsu and Nyssa - Arrow
5 Shaw and Root - Person of Interest
4 Max and Caroline - 2 Broke Girls
3 Rory Gilmore and Paris Gellar - Gilmore Girls
2 Supergirl and Cat Grant - Supergirl
1 Jane Rizzoli and Maura Isles - Rizzoli & Isles
Seriously, who else could top the list? Since the beginning, TNT’s mystery series has been called “the best lesbian partner cop show that doesn’t realize it yet.” The chemistry between Angie Harmon’s cop Jane Rizzoli and Sasha Alexander’s medical examiner, Maura Isles, has been prevalent, the tomboy and the upscale gal, street smarts and book smarts and both look utterly gorgeous no matter what the job is. They hang out, they’ve had sleepovers, they’ve seen each other naked, they’re a couple in every single way except a kiss. True, both have been pushed to male lovers but it’s so obvious they belong together, it’s stunning. With the show entering its final season, the time is right to end it the way fans want and give the show’s fandom a great send-off to one fantastic couple.
