My Ship of the week ending 2/8/20 on TV goes to…

Cheryl Blossom and Toni Topaz on The CW’s Riverdale, also known as Choni!

Ever since Toni told Cheryl that she thought she was sensational, I fell in love with these two. Over the seasons, they have had their ups and downs, but one thing remains. They are loyal to one another until the end and their love knows no bounds.

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

While Choni doesn’t always get enough screen time, their relationship has truly grown and developed over the seasons. While I enjoy seeing some of the passionate and steamy moments between them, the reason why I ship them so much is because of their friendship and understanding.

Cheryl and Toni open up to one another, truly letting their walls down, as they reveal their past, fears, and desires. If anyone tries to mess with the other, they are right there to stand up for their love, bringing us timeless epic moments again and again.

In season 4, episode 12, Cheryl crosses paths with Nick Sinclair once again, bringing up some traumatizing memories. After sharing everything with Toni, Toni tells Cheryl that she has also been there before and wants to help her get through things one step at a time. This gesture is so real and honest, as Toni wears her heart on her sleeve, proving to be Cheryl’s rock.

Even though this is a heartwarming moment, Toni takes things up a notch to remind Nick Sinclair that no one should ever mess with Cheryl, proving to be the world’s best girlfriend. She lures Nick into a trap and teaches him a lesson, which had me standing up and applauding.

Cheryl may never be able to completely recover from what happened, but Toni is there to support her every step of the way, making each day that much brighter.

The transformation and growth of Choni is contagious. They always find a way to make me smile, reminding me what real love is all about.

What’s next for Choni?

We’ll have to see how their new business venture at The Maple Club goes, but I have a feeling that Penelope may try to make some waves, but it’s nothing that our power couple can’t handle.

Choni gives us so many incredible moments week after week on the show. They have both changed and grown as characters, but they have also both learned to finally be themselves.

Both of them shine so much in their relationship and I know that they are end game for certain! I can’t wait to see more incredible moments showcasing these two and they will continue to be one of my favorite ships of all time!

What are YOUR thoughts on Choni?

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

My Ship of the week ending 1/18/20 on TV goes to…

Ian Gallagher and Mickey Milkovich on Showtime’s Shameless, also known as Gallavich!

Shameless may be coming to an end after season 11, but it looks like Gallavich is destined for the happily ever after they deserve.  Oh and “save the f*cking speech you Pussy.”

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not caught up on the series.**

Over the years of watching Shameless, there have been three couples to really stand the test of time for me:  Kev and V, Fiona and Jimmy, and Ian and Mickey.  Kev and V continue to keep the laughs coming while being there for one another unconditionally, but after Jimmy’s heartbreaking departure, I was truly worried about the fate of Gallavich.

Fear not, as our favorite couple was reunited in season 9 when Ian was sent to prison.  I mean, it must be true love if someone is willing to get thrown in jail for you.  After Fiona’s departure at the end of season 9, Ian became a season regular again in season 10, providing us Gallavich fans with a lot of fantastic and swoon-worthy moments.

It seemed like Ian and Mickey transformed into an old married couple while in jail, but luckily they both returned to Southside to start over.

After Ian’s initial hesitation about marrying Mickey, I was slightly worried that we would have to wait too long for them to come to their senses, but thankfully we were given the episode we have dreamed about with season 10 episode 10, “Now Leaving Illinois.”

Ian hilariously attempted to make Mickey jealous, but ended up overhearing Mickey’s new boyfriend, Byron, talking about him behind his back.  Ian defended Mickey’s honor and we witnessed a fist fight followed by a romantic proposal…Gallavich style, as Mickey hilariously told Ian to save the speech, agreeing to marry him.

Shameless Showtime Season 10 2

It’s about time, Gallavich!!!!!!

What’s next for Gallavich?  It looks like we will get a lot more screen time for these two for the remaining episodes of season 10, as they now have to deal with planning a wedding.  I’m sure that this will go smoothly.

Gallavich proves to be a ship that never fails to touch our hearts and souls.  They never compromise who they are and they are loyal to one another until the end, reminding us what true love is all about.  I can’t wait to see some more crazy adventures with them during the final season of Shameless!

P.S. Shameless writers, if you want to pull out all the stops for the final season, please let Fiona and Jimmy get their happily ever after too!  Fingers crossed!

My Ship of the week ending 10/19/19 on TV goes to…

Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones on The CW’s Riverdale season 4.  There’s just something about Bughead that makes your heart skip a beat. 

While both Bughead and Varchie had some passionate and fiery moments in season 4 episode 2, Bughead takes the crown for me because they have a bond that transcends all of that, understanding what it truly means to give up everything to do what is best for your partner.  Please note some spoilers are ahead if you are not up-to-date on the series.

In a lot of ways, Betty and Jughead are ahead of their time.  There is a maturity and friendship to their relationship and they really make you think past the temporary moments of passion.  Sure, we love seeing these swoon-worthy parts, but I really enjoy witnessing Betty and Jughead’s selfless moments together even more. 

They won’t have an easy year ahead of them, but Betty understands Jughead’s talent and potential and she reminds him that they can get through anything together, which was really inspiring and heartwarming to hear.

Betty and Jughead aren’t perfect by any means.  In fact, I think that both of them have kept their fair share of secrets, but season 4 is really allowing them to flourish.  In a lot of ways, they have moved past their prior mistakes and now they are truly grateful for one another, understanding what really matters in the end…being together.

There doesn’t need to be some epic moment between them because of all of their small moments together make them stand out that much more.  They resemble a real and stable relationship and while I am worried about their future fate now that they will be separated, I have faith in these two no matter what.

Betty and Jughead are both strong characters individually and when they are together, they compliment each other so well and I love seeing them team up for mysteries.

My favorite moment of the episode was during English class when Betty pulled Jughead out in the hallway to tell him to go to Stonewall, reminding him that they are always together.  Betty wants what is best for Jughead and I know that he would do the same for her.

What’s next for Bughead?  We’ll have to wait and see, but I am anxious to find out more about Jughead’s disappearance in the future.  Betty is my go to girl to solve the case, so I know that she will not stop until she finds him, but I am starting to wonder more about what led them to this separate path.

Long distance relationships are never easy, but I know that Betty and Jughead will do everything in their power to stay together.  The King and Queen of the Serpents deserve every bit of happiness, but I have a feeling that someone might try and get in their way.  These two are stronger together, but I am not underestimating either of them and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

I’m always rooting for these two and I would love to see some more screen time for both of them, especially since we know that they will really need to work at putting in some quality time together.

What are YOUR thoughts on Bughead?  A dynamic duo or on the outs?

My Ship of the week ending 8/31/19 on TV goes to…

Justin and Jessica on Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why season 3.  So normally when I do these posts, there is something really swoon-worthy, passionate, or epic between a ship and I fall head-over-heels in love with them, but I am honestly really conflicted about this ship, but I still think it is worth a mention and perhaps a deeper discussion.  Please note major spoilers have been left out for your convenience.

In a lot of ways, Justin and Jessica have a toxic relationship and I didn’t really want to root for them after what was uncovered in season 1.  In season 3, Jessica is really finding her voice as a survivor and she is trying to get others to accept change, but she is also exploring her own sexual identity again, which is not easy to do. 

Jessica knows that it is wrong to be with Justin because she initially wants to keep their relationship a secret.  That being said, these two have some beyond sexy moments in season 3 and it’s hard to ignore the passion that has been sparked between them.

As season 3 continues, Justin even starts to recognize that perhaps Jessica is better off without him.  Justin is an addict and they are both broken so this thought process actually makes sense to me, except perhaps throw in a little open honesty.  Jessica continues to stand by Justin’s side and tells him, “Your shit is my shit.”  Perhaps she could have chosen some other words here, but she gets her point across, reminding Justin that she has his back always and Justin would do anything for Jessica.

At the end of season 3, I was left wondering if this ship truly has the potential to make it and I’m honestly not sure.  I personally think that Justin needs to actually deal with his addiction and recover from that before he can even attempt to be in a relationship.  Jessica is strong and powerful, but she is also still broken in a lot of ways and will she every truly be able to get over the past when she looks at Justin?

What’s next for Justin and Jessica?  I’m honestly not sure what season 4 holds for these two, but I am trying to keep an open mind.  I guess what I actually ship here is the potential for something real in the future rather than the present state of their relationship.

Maybe it will never happen and maybe it’s not meant to, but I can’t ignore the chemistry and friendship between these two and they do have some really adorable moments together.  I just think that they both need to find out who they are apart…and if their paths cross again in the future and they are ready to give it a try, perhaps this can be the start of a beautiful relationship.

What are YOUR thoughts on Justin and Jessica?  Toxic and unstable or charming and sweet?

My Ship of the week ending 8/17/19 on TV goes to…

Kelsey and Zane on Younger!  There are some amazing ships on this show, but I am so in love with Kelsey and Zane and I have been rooting for them for quite a while now.  Kelsey hasn’t had the best luck in her previous relationships, but I felt that instant spark and chemistry when she met Zane. 

His charming confidence was the perfect match for Kelsey’s stubborn tenacity and these two really compliment each other, while entering into some friendly competition as well, but that’s what makes their relationship scream passion!

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you have not watched season 6, episode 9 yet.  Even though it seems like Kelsey and Zane are the perfect match, they haven’t really had their moment in the spotlight yet.  Kelsey and Zane both care about their jobs a lot and it has often gotten in the way of their relationship, but it looks like that is finally about to change!

In season 6, episode 9, Zane is hurt when he finds out that Kelsey has been lying to him about Liza’s real age and she tries to work things out with him.  This leads to a real and honest conversation between them, as Zane asks Kelsey what she really thought when he told her he loved her.  The obstacles appear to be out of the way for now and Kelsey tells Zane that she loves him too, which had me jumping up and down for joy!

Kelsey is such a strong woman and her past relationships consisted of men who simply did not deserve her.  Either they didn’t see how amazing she was or they were too busy being selfish, but she was so far out of their league.  Even though Zane tries to pretend like he doesn’t care, he does, and he proves that he has a softer and romantic side when it comes to his feelings for Kelsey.

Kelsey and Zane deserve a real chance at happiness and I believe in their relationship.  They are beyond adorable together and I love when they go out drinking, as the walls come down and they are finally just themselves with one another.  Perhaps Kelsey should leave the cooking to Zane in the future though…

What’s next for Kelsey and Zane?  Now that it looks like they are finally giving their relationship a chance, what does this mean for their working relationship?  Zane is currently reporting to Kelsey, but this will most likely need to change if they want to avoid more scandal at Millennial, but I can’t wait to see some more swoon-worthy moments for these two and I hope nothing else stands in their way because they are end game for me!

My Ship of the week ending 8/3/19 on TV goes to…

Diana and Enzo on Younger!  Even though Liza’s relationships get the most attention on the show, Diana and Enzo deserve some recognition for being one of the most adorable ships I have seen on television in a long time.  From the first moment Enzo walked into Diana’s life as the plumber from Staten Island, I fell in love with these two and I will continue to ship them together.

**Please note some spoilers are ahead if you have not watched season 6 episode 7 yet.  Even though Diana and Enzo come from different worlds, they are willing to meet each other halfway.  Diana has actually grown so much as a character because of her relationship with Enzo, as she even finds herself boarding a ferry to Staten Island and putting up with Enzo’s judgmental mother, which is no easy task!

Diana has made some mistakes when it comes to Enzo, but she risks it all and throws appearances out the window when she finds out he is trapped in the sewer.  Even though Enzo is covered in filth, Diana embraces him, refusing to let him go.  We have witnessed so many passionate and swoon-worthy moments between these two and Diana even writes about her tale of love in the paper, revealing that she does have a softer, romantic side and reminding us that it’s never too late to find that kind of epic love that some only dream about.  

I really enjoyed Diana’s article where she talked about truly appreciating and loving the person next to you because at the end of the day, that’s the person of your dreams.  He or she may not be everything you thought you wanted, but perhaps they make you a better person and help you become a greater version of yourself.

In season 6 episode 7, Diana begins to panic when she finds out that Enzo has previously had a “one year expiration date” on all of his past relationships.  Only our girl Diana has nothing to worry about because she truly is one of a kind, as Enzo decides to spontaneously propose to her!  Diana initially comments on the lack of ring, but decides to just go with it and enthusiastically says yes, embracing the possibility of true love.

With all of the drama surrounding Charliza, Josh, and Kelsey and Zane, it was nice to just truly appreciate a couple that is head over heels in love and I can’t say enough good things about this ship.  What’s next for Diana and Enzo?  It will be interesting to see Enzo’s mother become Diana’s mother-in-law, but we know that she can hold her own!  Either way, this ship is timeless, passionate, and inspiring and I will continue to root for Diana and Enzo against all odds!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!

My Ship of the week ending 7/13/19 on TV goes to…

Kane and Abby on The 100, better known as Kabby!  Kabby is such an underrated ship on The 100 and it doesn’t get as much attention as Bellarke or Clexa, but there is something to be truly said about it.  The love between Kabby is powerful and healing.  Both Kane and Abby have lost their way so many times and yet they find something so special with one another.

**Please note MAJOR spoilers are ahead if you have not watched season 6 episode 9 yet.  The journey for these two characters is truly remarkable, as they have both made so many mistakes, but yet they continue to fight to make things right.  Even though Kane may have the most to make up for from his time on The Ark, he has now essentially become the moral compass of the show. 

In seasons 5 and 6, Abby has been broken, but Kane has never given up on her, which explains why Abby refuses to let him go in season 6.  However, I love that Kane doesn’t turn a blind eye either.  He does intervene and he tries to get Abby to see reason during her addiction in season 5 because he truly cares and wants what is best for her.  In season 6 episode 9, Kane wakes up in his new body and has trouble adjusting and accepting this.  Abby begs him to make the most of it, recognizing the potential for a second chance here, but Kane knows this is not right and he decides to bring everything full circle.

In one of the most heartbreaking moments I have witnessed yet on the show, Kane (as Henry Ian Cusick) says goodbye to Abby through the glass and tells her that he has always loved her.  He essentially floats himself, hoping his sacrifice will make a difference here and he brings everything full circle by doing this.  Abby has turned to drugs in the past, but will Kane’s sacrifice finally get through to her?  We have heard the phrase, “May We Meet Again,” so many times on the show, but it truly made an impact with me in this moment.

Henry Ian Cusick has confirmed that he is leaving the show, but I can’t really think of this as the end of Kabby.  Their love is so inspiring and I’m hoping that Abby will carry her love for Kane with her always, which will keep his values alive.  Kane has always wanted to make amends and do the right thing and he will never be forgotten.

Kabby’s love is transcendent of time and it’s difficult thinking about the show without it.  I almost feel like I lost a part of myself along with Kane, but I have a feeling that a spark has just ignited in Abby and she’s about to make Kane proud.  Thank you Henry Ian Cusick for so many amazing years on the show and thank you for bringing Kabby into our lives!  May we meet again.  Stay tuned!

Stay tuned for a recognized Ship on TV each week!
