This is How You OTP: 9 Swoon-Worthy Moments on TV
There is love, and then there’s the love we see on TV. Check out our 9 most swoon-worthy moments on TV so far this year.
7. The Reunion - The 100
Don’t try to tell me there’s no romance here. There’s a lot of romance in The 100, and it’s not all between Bellamy and Clarke. In fact, you could even argue that there’s no real romance between them. But boy, is there love. Real love. Love that didn’t take me binge-watching the first two seasons like a crazy person on Netflix over one weekend to figure out. Love that’s obvious in promos and gifs and most of all, in this fifteen second hug. Because you don’t hug your brother like that. You don’t.
Still, this seems like a weird inclusion to my list of swoon-worthy moments. No love declaration, no kiss. Why is this here? It’s here because though I was actively shipping them BEFORE, it was in this precise moment that I fell in love with the pairing. With the way she breathes him in. With the way he hesitates at first and then hugs her so tight he might as well be crushing them. I fell in love with the possibilities of Bellamy and Clarke.
And, in this particular case, there’s still a lot of story to be told. A lot of stuff to look forward to.
