20 of the most devastating TV and movie breakups

Movies and TV shows provide a considerable amount of couples that fans become obsessed with, but they also leave viewers devastated when a favorite couple breaks up. After becoming emotionally invested in the fictional love lives of characters, it’s heartbreaking to see the couples that you were rooting for decide to part ways. 

Here are some of the most devastating TV and movie relationships.

Ross and Rachel —”Friends”

NBC

Ross and Rachel’s relationship can best be described as a roller coaster, because it had constant highs and lows. Over the course of 10 seasons, the couple dated other people, broke up, and rekindled their relationship. Their relationship took a hit on season three, when Ross started getting jealous of Rachel spending more time at work with her co-worker, Mark, than with him. Thinking they were on a break and Ross was so upset, he slept with a woman who worked at a nearby copy store, Chloe. 

The next morning, Ross got a message from Rachel where she professed her love for him and they seemingly fixed the rough patch from the previous day. However, Rachel didn’t know that Ross slept with someone else, and when she did find out from Gunther, it was one of the saddest moments in the show. 

Ross begged Rachel to stay with him, but she couldn’t get past what he did.

“It doesn’t matter what you say or what you do, Ross. It’s just changed everything forever,” Rachel said. 

They did eventually end up together — because as Phoebe said, they’re each other’s lobsters — but that scene scarred Ross and Rachel fans forever. 

Olivia and Fitz — “Scandal”

ABC

One of the biggest storylines on “Scandal” involves Olivia’s relationship with Fitz. Fans care deeply about their romance, so when they broke up, people demanded a proper reason — and they got one. 

When the cast and creator attended a panel discussion, Shonda Rhimes was asked about why she decided to break up Fitz and Olivia. 

“Olivia is on a journey,” Rhimes explained. “She has been on a journey since we started. It’s interesting to me that it’s a romance, that her primary story is a romance — that’s what you’ve seen. But to me, her primary story has been discovering herself.”

She added: “I’m happy that you have fallen in love with Fitz because that’s the journey that Olivia went on. She got the fantasy and then discovered the fantasy wasn’t real. That doesn’t mean she doesn’t love Fitz, but it means Olivia does not know who she is yet.”

Even though the breakup was hard for fans to deal with, this seems like a great explanation as to why “Olitz” had to end. 

Stefan and Elena — “The Vampire Diaries”

The CW

Fans of “The Vampire Diaries” are all too familiar with the love triangle that played out over the course of several seasons. In the heated debate over who Elena should end up with, viewers took sides, choosing to be on “team Damon” or “team Stefan.” 

On season one, Elena and Stefan started dating and it was a sweet relationship that you couldn’t help but root for. Stefan was a gentleman who swept Elena off her feet, while Damon was the bad boy who caused unnecessary drama. Even though “Stelena” stuck together when things got complicated, Elena decided to break up with Stefan because she thought she was becoming too focused on their relationship and neglecting others. 

When she told him “it’s over” and they both started crying, all the “Stelena” shippers of the world also cried.
