A WB Valentine's: Who Should our Fav WB Characters Be With? - Featured

Here at SideReel, we love, love, love The WB! And we know you do too!

Some of all of our favorite shows back in the day (well, the 90's and on a bit) were WB shows with tons of heart and lots of very endearing characters.

So, since it's Valentine's Day, let's talk about some WB lovin!

Below I've listed some main characters from SideReel's fav older WB shows, so we want to know if you think the characters who did end up with someone ended up with the right someone, and for those main characters left without final love interests, we want to know who you think they should they be with. And don't get too offended here, we're all about empowering the awesomeness of singledom as well, so if you think it's great that character was left living the single life, tell us that too!

Gilmore Girls

Lorelai & Luke

Rory as a single lady

Veronica Mars

Veronica & Logan - or so we assume!

Dawson's Creek

Joey & Pacey

Dawson single & living his career dream


Felicity & Ben

The O.C.

Seth & Summer

Ryan & possibly Taylor

Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Buffy being her strong, awesome, single self

Share your thrills at these endings or love match dreams below!

Actually, I would have liked Spike to get the girl. Spike and Buffy brought the best out in each other.

Feb 12, 2010 10:56PM EST

On The O.C., really wasnt expecting ryan and taylor when i started 4th season...i guess it's a decent second from ryan and marissa, dont think i ever cried so much cuz of a tv show when she died. xD
I agree with all the rest though...maybe not so much rory, but i get it.

Buffy and Angel definitely need each other, they are totally soul mates :)
Rory should have ended up with Jess (the new author Jess not him as he was in the earlier days) but Lorelai is perfect with Luke
Veronica actually ends up with Piz in the series not Logan but Logan is in fact absolutely the one for her

Veronica Mars was actually on UPN and not The WB. Not to nit-pick.I was always a fan of Buffy with Spike and Veronica with Logan.

Feb 13, 2010 6:33AM EST

Buffy had to be with Spike!!! I loved them together.
I actually hated th Veronica and Logan relationship. He jst was always hurtin her. So I really liked it when she got with Piz and I think she should have stayed with him.
Lorelai definately had to be with Luke and I have to agree I wanted Rory to get back with Jesse!!!! I loved them.(
Oh and wasnt such a big Dawson's reek fan but Joey with Pacey is definatley my vote and Dawson all alone is also my vote:)

Buffy clearly says that angel was the most important thing in her life and that she would have given anything to be with him! and in the last episode when she tells spike that she loves him he knows that its not true but when she sees angel she says that she will most likely want to end up being with him in the end.

Buffy and Spike would have been a terrible couple. I can say that because, they never were a couple. They were friends with benefits. As much as I loved Spike- he was cool, witty and insightful- Buffy did not respect him enough to be good with him. It would have been a crash and burn relationship. Spike was awesome, and the chemistry and plot development that came out of those two was great, but I really don't think they would have worked together. Spike would end up being heart-broken, and out of guilt, I think Buffy would have become even more isolated. (Same thing goes for Angel, but there was actual love there.. it was just too big for either of them)

I agree with farghes, buffy cared for spike...but mainly used him because she was having issues and needed comfort. spike was so in love with buffy that it made him reckless. and buffy hated herself whenever she was with him.they never could've actually had a healthy and stable relationship...when the feeling isn't shared. it wasn't mutual. i loved them together, they had an interesting chemistry....but they weren't soulmates or destined to be together or whatever. angel and buffy were really in love, but the whole curse issue ruined that. if angel ever becomes human (permanently), he'll go back to buffy :)
i was never a loyal fan of gilmore girls or the o.c. but i've watched a lot of reruns on tv.
soo...I also agree that rory should be with jess. i loved them together.

Buffy and Spike- or Buffy and no one. The cute little relationship she had as a sixteen-year-old with a centuries old vampire (read: Angel) was unhealthy and really had no depth other than how they were convinced they were in love with each other. Of course, Buffy says in an early S2 episode that she loves Angel, but doesn't trust him, and later tells Spike in S6 that she could never trust him enough to love him. So it seems that Buffy herself grew out of the relationship with Angel, and for Angel? Please. Buffy was barely a blip in his radar after S1 of AtS. Spike and Buffy are very alike in their devotion to the people they love, and once she comes to terms with her feelings for Spike, (which ostensibly happens at the end of S7, too late for us to see much of it before Spike turns to ash) they could have had a healthy, loving relationship. Only when Buffy was trapped in the self-hate of S6 were they really in a messed up relationship.

I agree with everything except for Gilmore Girls I think she should have been with Jesse and Buffy shouldn't be alone she should have been with Angel. No Spike bad idea. He should be with somebody that is like him.

BuffyI actually think that Buffy is better off alone while Angel was her one true love it was always a doomed love and she was never destined for a happily ever after and yeah that's sucktastic(insert vampire pun) but all of her relationships after angel were temporary and shallow Spike was the closest she came to making it work and honestly that was a completely messed up relationship I'm not saying that she can't have relationships but I can't see them as lasting til death do us part sort of thingsGilmore GirlsI love Luke and Lorelai together and I have since the pilot I love the fact that even after seven years the same chemistry was there but I totally agree that Rory should end up with Jess, not that I'm apposed to her spending some time to be single and find herself (I feel thats something that was never addressed while the show was on air) but In the version of her life I played out in my head I've always assumed that she would find her way back to Jess. I think that Jess managed to grow an amazing amount over the show and that the moderately successful author we last saw is everything Rory needs

well personally i love seth and summer together and ryan and taylor although it was supposed to be marissa but taylor is a good second best for ryan. in gilmore girls i loved luke and lorelai together they had a great friendship then love story. but i think rory should have got back together with logan they were soooo good together. i didnt really watch any of the others.

Veronica actually ends up with Piz, although the series wasn't left with a good conclusion. I always wanted V to hook up with Weevil or Logan but Piz was a cute guy.

I always hated Cordelia, but I have to admit that he relationship with Angel was very fitting yet, in the last episodes of Angel, he says he still loves Buffy. So I don't think he'd be right for either of them.
Am I the only one that got the Fred/Spike vibe? They had such great chemistry...
Luke and Lorelei all the way.
Jess was my crush for years. He brought out a spark in Rory, Logan could never find and Rory challenged him to be the best he could be. They're a perfet fit.
Oh and Spike should be with me ;) lol.

Actually if i remember correctly (and ive seen the seasons like 4 times each) Veronica doesn't end up with anyone. So unless I'm missing something, lol.
Loralei and Luke it was obvious from the beginning were meant to be.
and Joey and Pacey were a pretty awesome couple.
as for the OC i have no comment I was severely unhappy with how they left the fourth season!But obviously seth and summer are the it couple of the show.

Veronica and Logan... of course!
Her ending up with Piz at the end of the show is debatable. If you watch the commentary for season 3, Rob Thomas, the creator, makes it clear that the very last scene of all three of them together is meant to show a defeated Piz, who knows it's over, and becomes painfully aware that Veronica still loves Logan (they share a look.... RT's words, not mine!). I have no doubt that LoVe would end up together in the long run... And just my two cents on the whole situation, it's not Logan that hurts Veronica, it's the other way around for the most part.

Joey and Pacey! I loved it... for a minute there I thought they were not going to end up together, but I was sooooo glad that they did.
Buffy is ok alone, she is the epitome of an indepent woman... though I would have loved for her to end up with Angel.
I agree, Seth and Summer!
Gotta love WB shows!

I agree with skywinn - Angel with Cordelia was perfect.
And someone else said something about Fred/Spike...no...Fred with Wesley was good.
And as believeable as the lesbian chemistry was with Tara, I agree with Danielle....Willow with Oz.
And what about Xander? Maybe Willow with Xander instead of Oz simply because Oz could be dangerous once in a full moon...pun intended.

Feb 14, 2010 5:24PM EST

Well many will hate me but i believe the cutest couple was Rory & Dean and Lorelai & Luke and that's just in Gilmore Girls. If we go to Veronica Mars well she should have ended up with Piz because he liked her for she was and didn't fight what she did like every other guy in her life, even if the season ended with them just starting to try and workout something. For Dawson's Creek i have to agree Joey & Pacey. I'm sorry again, no offense to the Felicity or The OC viewers but I didn't like it. And last but not least in Buffy I have to put my foot down and say Angel because even though Spike brought the best out of Buffy & vice-versa, Angel is the hot, sexy, sweet and caring all in one package, so my pick I repeat in this is Buffy & Angel.

LadyD82, you had some interesting comments. I enjoyed the Angel and Cordelia arc. It was pretty interesting, and Fred with Wesley was good.But my favourite Buffy/Angel Universe coupling will always be Wesley and Lilah. It was just so wrong and so perfect at the same time. I think out of all the pairings, those two were the only ones who ever really saw each other for what they really were. They weren't deluded by any thoughts of love, and as a result, they could never really hurt each other. I thought that was one of the most amazing Television romances ever.In regards to Willow's love life.. I don't really know. I liked Willow with Oz, and I liked the fact that Willow went the lesbian route too.. but I never really liked Tara. I know a lot of fans loved Tara, but I never really saw her grow to be anything more than Willow's sidekick, and that is something I can only really fault the creative team for. They tried to make her more with that one episode where Tara's family came to get her, and the rest of the scoobies stood up for her, but I never really saw her develop past that point.And Xander? ... I don't know. I like to think that eventually found love. But I don't want it to be with any of the original Scoobies. I want him to find someone new and untouched by the Hellmouth.

All my favorite shows from the WB:
Gilmore Girls:
~ Luke & Lorelai (Perfect!)~ Rory & Jess ( I was so upset when they had her go back to Logan.)
Veronica Mars:
~ Veronica & Weevil (Yes, I suppose I'm probably the only one who was hoping through out the whole series, that they were going to end up together!)
~ Buffy & Spike (While I loved Buffy & Angel, I was rooting for these two by the end. They had so much chemistry together, it was amazing to watch.)
The O.C.:
~ Ryan & Taylor (Enough said.)
7th Heaven:
~ Ruthie & Martin (Me & my mom screamed at the tv when Ruthie turned Martin down. She so should have picked him over T-bone and they should have shown Ruthie kissing Martin. It was such a disappointing ending!)
Beverly Hills 90210 (the original):
~ Brenda & Dylan (The bad-boy and the good girl)
~ Max & Liz (Loved this show! I just wish they would have shown a little more of their storyline after the wedding.)~ Michael & Maria (Perfect pair.)

okay second time commenting since I spent a very long time on the whole Buffy thing and never discussed any of the other charactersWillow- Oz or Tara I would have loved to see Tara come back I absolutely loved the script that Joss had planned out to bring her back (Buffy would have been given one wish that defied all the laws of magic and nature and she would have used it to bring Tara back for Willow) but since the actress wasn't available and we couldn't have that I would have preferred we bring Oz back I just didn't like Kennedy I felt that they lacked chemistry and that there just wasn't enough time to develop her.Xander- I loved xander and his hilarious relationships I though he was awesome with Cordelia and Anya but I suspect I would like him with almost anyone (Buffy and Willow being the exceptions) I kinda wish #1 Anya had lived and #2 they had actually gotten married because I think he would make an adorable husband and father (I would have loved it if Anya and Xander had gotten "together" prior to the finale and both of them had survived it than as we have our moment of victory are everyone is standing around the crater that we sunnydale Anya tells Xander she's pregnant and we see Xander freaking out "Baby we can't have a baby we don't have a house or a job what are we supposed to do raise on a school bus?") okay I now must write a fan fictionGiles- Since I'm in the habit of raising the dead why don't we bring Mrs Calendar back or better yet Joyce (I always thought Giles and her had great chemistry and they did have a bit of a fling even if it was under the influence of chocolate)Wesley - Fred, I wanted those two together since they first introduced her and was very annoyed that they only got to be together for like two episodes before she was killed although I can't say I wasn't expecting it Joss is rather predictable in that regard

Feb 16, 2010 3:43AM EST

Buffy and Angel!! They both sacrificed so much for the rest of the world. Remember, practically every episode of buffy? and Angel's episode "i shall remember you"...that was soooo sad.Also, she didn't actually love spike. Their chemistry was good and I really liked Spike but Buffy and Angel had more of a connection.oh yea, willow and tara would have good.
but i guess in some way, i kinda wouldnt mind it being buffy and spike and dare i say it, faith and angel. she had history, and he helped her out so much!

Definitely agree that Buffy should be with Angel, he suffered hundreds of years of torture in hell to get back to her, the fact she didn't have a healthy relationship after that only adds strength to the argument.
Willow and Tara were the reason I started watching that show, her and Kennedy always felt like a cop out.
And Rory should have ended up with Jess, you know if he hadn't ended up with superpowers.

Gilmore GirlsDefinitely Lorelai & Luke, they are the perfect for each other.And Rory is the best with Jess, they have more connection and real love. I hated her with Logan, he cheated, is the reason she dropped out of college etc. Dean was good the first time, but the second time he wasn't good at all.

He wasn´t the dark but sweet guy he used to be when he was with Buffy anymore.Spike will always be better than Angel. He died to kill all of those demons!! He changed a lot Buffy.Someone here posted that Angel died and waited for Buffy in hell for thousand of years.. Whaaaat? Buffy killed him, and he just died. He didn´t wait in hell, he just went there until buffy brought him back.And Angel's got da curse so he couldn´t be with Buffy anyway u.u
