We just found out that one of the hottest could-be couples on TV—a pairing with a decidedly devout "shipper" following--is finally going to lock lips for the very first time, and it is filling our Grinchy-sized hearts with so much glee.
It is a first kiss. And it is epic.
The smooch, which will happen pretty soon in the new year, will alter the course of these two characters for the rest of the series. And we can tell you this about how it happens:
They kiss. One of them freaks out. And then one of them gets a new love interest.
But….Wait, wait, wait! Let's just get back to the kissing part.
'Cause we're guessing some of you might want to know which two TV characters we're talking about?
Here's your list of suspects, and if you Twitter fiends retweet this story link, with #KissingTVCouple, we'll knock off one pairing for every 100 RTs, until the list is down to only two couples.
Now, don't forget to retweet this link! And make sure you're following @kristindsantos for updates.

Update, Tuesday Jan. 21 at 1:51 pm: Time to eliminate our final couple: Arrow's Felicity and Oliver. Now, please trust us "Olicity" fans when we tell you we want a kiss to happen just as much as you. But we have no inside intel at the moment that it's going down. Sorry! We promise to shout it from the rooftops if/when it does happen.
So your final two Kissing Couple possibilities are:
The first kiss happens this week, so be sure to tune into both shows! The Mindy Project has its amazing winter finale tonight on Fox, and The Vampire Diaries airs its 100th episode this Thursday. Only one of these couples will kiss.
Thanks for playing along. We had fun and hope you did too!
Oh, and favor: Tweet @kristindsantos when you see this first kiss, so she can join in with the requisite freakout. It's...So. Good.
