Sure, The Fall is about the hunt for a serial killer. But does that mean there can't be any romance?
Superintendent Stella Gibson (The X-Files' Gillian Anderson) may spend most of her time working to catch psychopath Paul Spector (Fifty Shades of Grey's Jamie Dornan) and smacking down misognyny on and off the job, but here and there we get glimpses of a softer side—often in the presence of pathologist Professor Tanya Reed Smith (The Good Wife's Archie Panjabi).
In Series 2 (stop reading now if you haven't watched!), there are lingering looks, hand-stroking, kissing, and almost—just almost—a trip back to Stella's room. Maybe Series 3?
Do you 'ship it? Think Stella would ever be interested in a deeper commitment (so far we've not seen evidence she's up for more than the one-night-stands she had with more-than-willing officers James Olson and Tom Anderson)? Could Reed see herself as more than a friend to Stella (she got pretty spooked while waiting for the elevator)?
