16 Times Teen Dramas Ruined LGBTQ Couples For No Reason

No relationship is perfect, even on TV. And this is especially true with teen dramas, since the characters are still growing up and figuring themselves out.


TeenNick

I’m all for angst and conflict. But sometimes teen dramas just plain do a couple dirty. In particular, a lot of LGBTQ TV couples get terrible storylines and unhappy endings.


The CW

Maybe one of them dies, maybe someone cheats, or maybe the pairing is just completely toxic altogether.

Having more LGBTQ representation on TV is great, but sadly, it’s not always done right. So, here are 16 times teen dramas ruined LGBTQ ships for literally no reason:

Spoilers ahead!

First, when Omar cheated on Ander while he was going through chemotherapy on Elite.


Netflix

Omar and Ander were one of the best relationships on the whole show, hands down, so I was really disappointed with Season 3. Technically, they still got their happy ending, but they shouldn’t have had to go through so much suffering to get there.

2.

When Zoe and Grace slept together after building up their relationship for a whole season, only for Grace to suddenly tell Zoe she wasn’t gay on Degrassi: Next Class.


Netflix

I’m still not exactly sure what the writers were going for with this storyline, but it was crushing to see Zoe get her heart broken like this. I’m still unclear on Grace’s sexuality and if she was genuinely questioning or not, since we never saw any of it from her character’s point of view. Regardless, this plot was a whole mess.

3.

When Alex and Marissa’s relationship was cut unfairly short and then never mentioned again on The O.C.

Fox

I loved that the show was exploring Marissa’s sexuality and was super excited to see this relationship. But then Alex’s character just abruptly left the show and Marissa’s sexuality was never brought up again.

4.

When Eric chose Adam over Rahim despite Adam bullying him on Sex Education.

5.

When Lexa was shockingly killed for absolutely no reason on The 100.


The CW

Still haven’t forgiven the writers for this one, tbh.

When Emily and Alison got divorced on The Perfectionists even though they were ENDGAME on Pretty Little Liars, thank you very much!


Freeform

7.

When Teddy found out his boyfriend Ian was the one threatening to out him on 90210.


The CW

Can we PLEASE get rid of this trope where a character pressures their significant other to come out?

8.

When Naomi was diagnosed with terminal cancer, thus destroying her and Emily’s relationship on Skins Fire.

Naomi and Emily were such a core part of the original Skins. I don’t understand why they brought them back for the revival if they were just going to completely destroy them.

9.

When Blaine cheated on Kurt on Glee.


Fox

Let’s be honest, there were a lot of issues with Klaine as a ship — Kurt dismissing any possibility that Blaine could be bisexual, Blaine dating Kurt’s former bully Karofsky, the cheating…the list goes on. Sure, they were endgame, but they could have been written so much better.
