    It was the kiss heard round the world...and one that was 50+ episodes in the making. After being separated by everything from abductions to planets, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s best friend duo of Fitz and Simmons finally came clean about their feelings and consummated their emotions in the form of a passionate kiss (twice!).

    C5001bea 90a3 468e 9bd5 e99cb8c84536
    Mindy knew how Danny felt about marriage, so telling him about their unexpected pregnancy wasn't exactly easy. Lucky for the doctor, Danny's mother, Annette, ended up spilling the beans. Danny's reaction was not what you'd expect from the sometimes hot-headed man who sees no point in marriage. (Or at least he didn't at that point.) In the end, he decided to simply tell his beautiful girlfriend, "We're a family."

    098da575 1570 4e44 b88e a15e8c389fc6
    2015 was a big year for Olicity shippers. From Oliver and Felicity's first sex scene to the recent proposal—which, yes, ended disastrously—Olicity fans no longer had to accept the occasional longing glance or faked "I love you." But even with all of that, the moment that really stood out was when Oliver decided to let go of the Arrow in order to be with Felicity.

    As partners, it's expected for Halstead and Lindsay to have a connection. But from day one of 'Chicago P.D.', it was evident that these two liked each other just a little bit more than friends typically do. Yet, thanks to a very protective—and scary—Sergeant Voight, Halstead and Lindsay were forced to keep their relationship strictly least until she left the Intelligence Unit and the two finally gave into their desires.

    Jackson and April Sleep Together, 'Grey's Anatomy'
    8f850d1a dc1f 4b0e 8966 59b388281713
    When season 11 ended with Jackson telling April to go to the Army—and that he wouldn't be there when she got back—Japril shippers had to face the idea that their favorite marriage could be coming to an end. But when April returned, she was more determined than ever that she and Jackson were meant to be. She fought for their love, right up until Jackson finally gave in, if only temporarily, and the two slept together. Perhaps this marriage isn't a lost cause, after all.

    11160962 0d1c 400e b306 d7dd3549b8f6
    When Lexa first showed up in 'The 100's second season, fans were already inclined to like her: She's the badass commander of the 12 Clans, what's not to love? But when Lexa opens up to Clarke about her deceased lover, Costia, fans envisioned a Lexa-Clarke romance, and Clexa was born. It didn't take too long for those shipper fantasies to play out

    Ecf776c6 3904 4c29 b729 02ffe9cb3685
    Norma Bates and Sheriff Alex Romero—it's an unlikely couple: Her son's a killer, and he's a cop. But somehow, these two have bonded in a way that drives shippers crazy. Their chemistry is undeniable, and yet, three seasons in, they've still never even kissed. However, fans finally got validation that it wasn't all in their heads when Romero and Norma shared a moment in one of her motel rooms.

    Once Barry finally told Iris how he felt, it set something in motion. And with a literal tidal wave heading for Central City, Iris confessed that she too felt something for Barry.

    Sheldon and Amy Have Sex, 'The Big Bang Theory'
    3df7098b 91f2 4cfc b5c7 9ee8721030e9
    Sheldon Cooper and Amy Farrah Fowler have never had the most traditional relationship—they met online because his friends and her mother forced each of them to join a dating site—but that's never stopped us from rooting for them. Whether it's no-hands kissing on the train or a romantic Vapor Rub on the chest, everything they've done is perfectly awkward and chaste...until now. The nerdy duo finally did the deed.
  11. •
    Jane and Kurt Kiss, 'Blindspot'
    4864dadb 1acb 483b a089 bcb8b3636df3
    It's not everyday that you meet a woman with your name tattooed across her back. For Kurt Weller, meeting Jane was the beginning of a beautiful relationship...and a very complicated mystery. After building tension all season long, 'Blindspot's midseason finale forced Jane to realize that life is too precious to hide feelings. So with that in mind, she finally kissed Kurt, and let's just say she's not likely to forget it.

    22bbe805 17f5 442e ba67 e696f2a98e9f
    Team Michael or Team Rafael? It's the question that 'Jane the Virgin' posed since its pilot, but it wasn't until season 2, when Jane had Mateo and was officially single that she had to answer that question. It came down to the kisses: Which one rocked her world? Spoiler: It was Michael. After kissing her ex-fiancé, Jane realized that she was meant to be with Michael. Sadly for shippers, the reunion was short-lived, but it was memorable nonetheless.

    440cf65e e5ee 4170 acf2 7d9312328020
    If there's any television relationship that can be deemed "complicated," it's most definitely that of Olivia Pope and POTUS Fitzgerald Grant. After four seasons of will-they-won't-they kisses, secret rendezvous, and break-ups, Olivia finally showed up at the White House ready to accept that she wanted a life with Fitz. As she told him when they kissed, it's finally their chance to do whatever they want.

    Nothing can break up a happy couple like one of the two becoming a zombie, but somehow, Liv and Major found a way even around that hurdle. It took a while: First, Liv had to come clean about the whole zombie thing, then Major had to come around to the idea of dating a zombie. But finally, in season 2, Major showed up on Liv's doorstep asking for help...and reigniting a flame that never really burned out.

    5133ee6b 2765 4447 807e b008ec7523d2
    For a while there, it seemed like Cece and Schmidt were destined to never romantically reunite—until Schmidt found out that Cece was indeed in love with him, and subsequently sprung into action to surprise her with a proposal as soon as she returned from a solo retreat. Lucky for him, she said yes.

    92653f39 39ca 48b8 a92d b7e113b36a84
    'Mad Men': prestige drama turned...rom-com? In one of the series’ final moments, Stan and Peggy declared their love for one another (over the phone, in typical Stan and Peggy fashion) before embracing in a passionate kiss. Although its gooey optimism didn’t exactly jell with the rest of the finale—or the show in general—it did satisfy any viewers who were waiting for these two pals to finally get together after seasons of hints.

    6e385f2a 430b 4864 bb5e ef965ee7d34a
    'The Vampire Diaries' season 6 finale was all about saying goodbye to Elena. There was nothing more beautiful than watching Damon and Elena dance—and confess their love for each other—one last time before she took a 50-year magical slumber. That moment was only made better when it was cut together with Stefan showing up at Caroline's house, declaring his love for her, and promising to wait for her, no matter how long it took her to heal from losing her mother.

    Jake and Amy Kiss, 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'
    A516692b d3b1 47d1 91da 80b34c9558ed
    Peralta and Santiago kissed not once, not twice, but three(!) times while working undercover as engaged couple Johnny and Dora—to avoid blowing their cover, naturally—but officially went from will-they-or-won’t-they to eeeeeeeeep they are! when the pair (as themselves, this time) locked lips in the evidence locker during the show’s season 2 finale.

    Deacon and Rayna have history: They were engaged when they were younger, but thanks to Deacon's struggle with alcoholism, Rayna ended up marrying and starting a family with Teddy. Then she got a divorce. Then we realized that her first child was actually Deacon's. Four seasons in, and the couple has managed to find their way back to each other, completing their journey with another marriage proposal.

    Klaus and Cami Kiss, 'The Originals'
    50c0a2cc 3df5 4ea6 987a 40c0f09f9b5a
    If ever there were a bittersweet kiss, it'd be this one. After three seasons of building a relationship between Cami, the human therapist, and Klaus, the all-powerful immortal hybrid, 'The Originals' gave fans what they'd been asking for: Klaus let his guard down, told Cami how he felt, and kissed her. Sadly, the kiss was followed by a murder, and it just so happened that Cami was the murder victim. So it turns out that Klaus' love is powerful...but perhaps not as powerful as his crazy ex-gf.

    When Beckett decided that she and Castle should take some time off, fans realized that even marriage couldn't guarantee happiness for their favorite couple. Thankfully, Beckett only ended it to protect Castle, which meant that a reunion was inevitable. And in the midseason finale for season 8, Castle and Beckett celebrated their first wedding anniversary with the greatest gift of all: reconciliation.
