Shipping Sunday: How to Get Away with Murder’s Connor/Oliver (Coliver)

How to Get Away with Murder is a show filled with problematic ships—ships you’re not really sure if you should root for. Let’s quickly catalog the potential ships and their issues:

1. Annalise/Nate Lahey—infidelity

2. Laurel/Frank—infidelity, student/authority figure

3. Asher/Bonnie—student/authority figure

4. Annalise/Wes—student/authority figure

5. Rebecca/Wes—client/(sort of) lawyer; also, they’re just kind of boring

And finally, my most favorite problematic ship of them all:

6. Connor/Oliver

Oh this one just breaks my heart. Out of all these inappropriate ships, it’s the only one I care to see work out. And that’s all due to Oliver, who is genuinely the only truly decent person on the show.

Supernatural 10x05 Heart-to-Heart: Destiel Squee!

Actresses play Dean and Castiel in a Supernatural Musical in which they are together

Show/Episode: Supernatural Season 10, Episode 5 (200th Episode), “Fan Fiction”
Ships: Dean/Castiel (Destiel), with references to Sam/Dean (Wincest)

**Beware: There are spoilers ahead for all aired episodes of Supernatural.**

SO MANY AWESOME THINGS HAPPENED ON SUPERNATURAL LAST NIGHT! So many! To squee about all of them would take me a good three days. Actually, I'll probably be talking about “Fan Fiction” for the rest of the season. In this episode, the boys stumble upon an all girls' school putting on a musical production of Carver Edlund’s cult classic “Supernatural” series. It was an amazing love letter, and even sort of an apology note to fans (Dean says to Marie, the young writer/director of the Supernatural musical “You know, this has been educational, seeing the story from your perspective. You keep writin’, Shakespeare.”).

But the most important thing (to me) that happened? They acknowledged DESTIEL!!

Looking for Love in Fall’s Returning Shows

Source: theaerogram.com

**Spoiler Alert: This post will contain many HUGE spoilers from previous seasons of New Girl, The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and The Vampire Diaries. Only read if you're caught up with each show or don't care about spoilers**

Networks have been airing previews, and we've gotten some tantalizing hints about what's in store for our favorite TV couples. Below, I take a look at four of my personal favorites—New Girl, The Mindy Project, Brooklyn Nine Nine (side note: I'm really into FOX shows right now, if you couldn't tell), and The Vampire Diariessome of which had MAJOR shakeups back in April/May, and speculate on what could happen next.

New Girl:

Where we left off: After a whirlwind relationship and a surprisingly mature break up, Nick and Jess were on rocky ground trying to figure out how to navigate their new dynamic while living in the same apartment. In the season finale, they acknowledge that, while they still feel for each other, they can put those feelings on hold and finally go back to being friends.

[That doesn't sound like an HEA...]

Supernatural’s Destiel: The Greatest Love Story (N)ever Told

Supernatural Season 9 official posterIt’s August now and another San Diego Comic Con has come and gone. All the beautiful people of The CW and MTV flocked to the San Diego Convention Center to ruminate on the inner lives of their characters, tease us with discussions of the Fall season (unless you watch Teen Wolf which is blessedly filling my need for hot shirtless boys in the summer), and create endless opportunities for Tumblr gifs.

Of all of the casts spotlighted, I must firmly declare my love for that of Supernatural, easily the TV show that has had the firmest grip on my heart for the past couple of years (and the greatest love story ever told).

The cast's hints about next season were tantalizing—morally ambiguous, fully human Sam, demon!Dean at his (self) destructive best, and Cas* searching for Dean at the expense of his fading borrowed grace. Added to all that, a meta-musical(ish) episode?!??! October can’t come soon enough.

But in reading that recap of what we’ve learned so far about Season 10, does any of it really sound that different from what we’ve seen before? No. Even the musical(ish) episode calls back to their other meta episodes like “The Real Ghostbusters” and “The French Mistake” (also, I very much hope, to the classic end credits scene in “Yellow Fever”). So what keeps us coming back to this show that was supposed to end after Season 5 but has amazingly gone on five more seasons (at least)?

[One word: Destiel...]
