It’s International Kissing Day, and we’re taking a look back at some of the best kisses over the past 10 years from of our favorite TV couples!

Television shows have often been about that slow burn when it comes to on-screen romance and lead characters. While some were unexpected and others took forever to happen — these favorite TV couples never lacked in the kissing department.

While some on this list were steamy and passionate, others were sweet and heartfelt. All are worthy of reminiscing about, so let’s get started.

1. Booth and Brennan (Bones – 2007)

Bones - Temperance Brennan and Seely Booth

On Bones Season 3 Episode 9, Booth and Brennan shared a mistletoe kiss that left all their fans wanting more. Though later on in the series, we find out this wasn’t their first — this one left quite an impression.

Did you catch Booth’s grin and stumble at the end? This couple ended up defying the “Moonlighting Curse” because the series ran for a total of 12 seasons, with this ship as a romantic couple for half of it.

3. Castle and Beckett (Castle – 2011)

Castle - Castle and Beckett

On Castle Season 4 Episode 23, Beckett realizes that all she wants is Castle, and she and shows up at his doorstep drenched to tell him that. The two share a very passionate and steamy kiss before it fades out as they head to the bedroom.

There was a lot of drama behind the scenes between the two lead actors, but somehow their chemistry on air never faltered. And while it was a happy ending, many fans felt it was rushed and did not do this crazy cute couple justice, which is why moments like this one were so important!

 4. Damon and Elena (The Vampire Diaries – 2011)

The Vampire Diaries - Damon and Elena

On The Vampire Diaries Season 3 Episode 19, Damon and Elena shared hot and steamy epic motel kiss that no one will ever forget. #Delena shippers rejoiced as these two finally gave into their feelings for each other, and it was just the start of many amazing kisses from this couple. They went through a lot over the course of the show, but this kiss proved they were destined to be together.

5. Jackson and April (Grey’s Anatomy – 2011)

Grey's Anatomy - Jackson and April

On Grey’s Anatomy Season 8 Episode 21, Jackson and April are running on adrenaline after having gotten into a mini bar brawl, which leads to her passionately kissing him.

Needless to say, April’s bravery was a turn on, so this scene turned PG-13 fairly quickly and changed their friendship forever. This couple continues to have its ups and downs, but it’s always a nice reminder to see where they came from.

Going into Season 7, this couple is still going strong, and we are loving the commitment to each other!

One thought on “16 Unforgettable TV Kisses from the Past 10 Years

  • I agree with almost all the kisses on here that are beautiful but out of all the beautiful kisses on Once Upon a Time with Snowing and Rumbelle you put in the CS, I saved your father so I deserve a reward kiss??? That was disgusting, misogynistic and sends a bad message! Have you even watched the show? Heck as abusive as CS is, they have had better, more romantic kisses than that one! That was bad taste!
