Vampire Diaries, The Mindy Project

CW; Patrick Wymore/FOX

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.

  1. Abbie and Ichabod, Sleepy Hollow
  2. Stefan and Caroline, The Vampire Diaries
  3. Danny and Mindy, The Mindy Project
  4. Huck and Quinn, Scandal
  5. Felicity and Oliver, Arrow
  6. Haley and Elijah, The Originals
  7. Nolan and Emily, Revenge
  8. Jake and Santiago, Brooklyn Nine-Nine
  9. Carrie and Quinn, Homeland
  10. Daryl and Carol, The Walking Dead

Now, don't forget to retweet this link! And make sure you're following @kristindsantos for updates.

Update, Friday, Dec. 20 at 12:00 pm: Congrats, tweeps! You've scored enough retweet points for us to axe one couple off the list. We are crossing out...

  • Jake and Santiago from Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Update, Monday, Dec. 23 at 10:45 am: You've scored another name off the list! It's not...

  • Huck and Quinn from Scandal. Because...Ew! Torture does not true love make.
Update, Thursday, Dec. 26 at 2:30 pm: Ack! You've caught us, there's no way that this couple is going to kiss...
  • Nolan and Emily from Revenge. They're like brother and sister!

Update, Tuesday, Dec. 31 at 8:00 am: Throw your hands in the air and  wave 'em like you just don't care! Why? Because you've worked your bums off hard enough for us to knock another couple off the list!

  • Abbie and Ichabod from Sleepy HollowSorry Ichabbie shippers (we prefer the name Crabbie, by the way), but these partners aren't locking lips!

Update, Monday, Jan. 6 at 12:15 pm: To help combat those Monday blues, we're kicking another twosome off the list. Say tootles to...

  • Carrie and Quinn from HomelandShe's in mourning, people. No time for kissing!

Update, Thursday, Jan. 9 at 9:00 am: We're getting down to the nitty-gritty and it's time to bid adieu to...

  • Daryl and Carol from The Walking DeadAs far as we know, Carol is going to be banished for quite some time. Sorry, Daryl!

Update, Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 9:40 am: Time to eliminate another non-face-sucking duo! The couple who will finally kiss for the first time is not...

  • Haley and Elijah from The Originals. Your first clue is that there's no way a kiss between those two could not really be long-awaited, since it's only a freshman series, you sillies! But the fan fervor over this coupledom is already so strong that we must tip our hats (for the zillionth time) to the show's writers.

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:

  • Mindy and Danny, The Mindy Project
  • Stefan and Caroline, The Vampire Diaries

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.
