10 Best Soap Opera Couples of 2013



No. 1: EJ and Sami, Days of Our Lives

Margaret Mitchell's estate should ask Alexandra Ripley to return the money they paid her to write a sequel to Gone With The Wind.  Oh, don't get us wrong. Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara's epic love affair lives on—only not in the pages of that tired Scarlett—five-days-a-week on NBC's Days of Our Lives!

Scheming, petulant, gossipy, vicious girl-woman Sami Brady (Alison Sweeney) still thinks she's every bit the Belle of the Salem Ball. The only man strong enough to tame her is one as roguish, black-hearted, calculating, cruel and sexually brazen as she is — EJ DiMera (James Scott). Only if he isn't careful, he'll be the one to be tamed!

In 2013, TPTB finally wised up and stopped scripting scenarios where Sami and EJ did violent things to one another and had them turn those particular talents on the rest of Salem. For one another, EJami only had all-consuming love this past year and we couldn't get enough of it.

Whether it was covering up a pesky murder or taking on the Phoenix (Joe Mascolo) himself, EJami had one another's backs, fronts, sides and other places we can't mention on a family friendly blog.

This is a great list! I loved and was disturbed in equal parts by EJami, Morgan & Ava, David & Angie, and Eric & Kristen. I imagine that is what makes each couple so great.

I only like Ejami and Scrubs...I used to love TnT, but I missed them on the new OLTL show. The rest of the list was ughhh to me.

This has got to be the worst list Ever. The only couples I agree with is EJami and Scrubs. The rest of them are the worst couples ever. The worst of the worst is Ava/Morgan.

This was really a terrible year for romance on soaps because i don't care about any of these pairings. Scrubs is fine but he's being a douche right now. Morgan and Ava were fun i guess.

This is the Worst list ever. The only couples I agree with is EJami and Scrubs. The rest of them are the Worst couples I have ever seen. The Worst of the worst is Ava/Morgan. There is No Chemistry at all. They are Awful Along with Bill and Brooke. You are awful at making lists. the fans should make the lists.

I'd add JJ and Theresa. While not an actual couple they did the impossible by making Jennifer Rose and Dirty Daniel slightly more watchable.

This list highlights a few deserving romantic, sexy couples i.e. Robin & Patrick, EJ & Sami, but more importantly the list highlights the desperate need for more love in the afternoon. That Britt & Nikolas are mentioned and the sheets aren't even dry as well as the made up coupling of Kevin and Chavez and the icky pairing of Ava and Morgan proves the days are gone when there were truly great couplings...Luke & Laura, Bo & Hope, Betsy & Steve, Tina & Cord, Frisco & Felicia, Jax & Brenda, Danny & Cricket, etc.

Looking forward to the worst couplings and I expect to see Michael/Starr and Michael/Kiki as well as Franco/Carly on that list.

Definitely agree with Ejami at the top. And glad to see Kevin and Chavez on this list--Rikaart has more chemistry with IS than he's had with every female actor he's been paired with combined. Y&R should've flipped that script long ago and put Kevin where he belongs--in another man's bed.

I was happy to see Brady and Kristen on the list, and I agree with Sami and EJ also.

Totally agree about Kevin and Alex on Y&R, that is a couple I would LOVE to see become a couple and hit the sheets all the time!

Good list! Would also throw honorable mention to Carly and Todd.

Swap Sam and Silas for Britt and Nikolas and I pretty much agree.

That being said, this has been the worst year for soap couples. Aside from Ejami finally getting it together there is not a single couple I've liked/cared for.

Here's hoping for better in 2014. My soap wish - which I know will never happen in a million years - is that GH casts Billy Miller as Lucky Spencer, and for the first time since I've been a viewer we get LL2 reunion I can actually enjoy.

Long live Bristen! They were truly The Hottest Couple of 2013 IMO, and I enjoyed EJami too, so what could have been better than the fact these two couples both living under the same roof at the DiMera mansion. Only thing missing now is of course Bristen...

And Kevin & Chavez REALLY is the best couple that there should be on Y&R, with smoldering hot chemistry. Isn't it funny how the best couple of that show and the only on that makes it on this list, is a would-be couple? Goes quite well to show the show's couples' non-rootworthiness. And of course, TPTB, the dumbasses that they are, would never capitalize on the smoking chem of this couple.

Loving Robin & Patrick! I don't think their reunion has been wasted or ruined at all.

LOVE Nik & Britt - loving Britt right now, she is such a layered, multi-faceted character. I hope they really make her a lead on this show. Plus loving her possible friendship with Robin.

Loved Victor & Téa, they're still smoking hot together and have that X factor of sorts. Can Florencia Lozano return to GH now???

IMO 2013 was a great year for hot romances, and for soaps altogether. Don't understand the complaints.

Nice list all around.

Great list!

I can agree with most of the pairings. Smile Britt and Nikolas are great. Same goes for Kristen & Brady, Brooke & Bill and Ava & Morgan.

LOVE Scrubs being 2nd.

But yeah. There isn't a better couple on soaps than EJami. Love Love Love

Kevin and Chavez are just a love story waiting to happen. As much as they try to put him back with Chloe, we all know whose bed he should really be in.

@simonstuart2003 Luke and I co-wrote the blurbs for this one, while all of the staff voted on their faves.

These opera couples are well selected but I got a question regarding calling it day time confidential thing, why is that day time?

I have always loved EJami, if TPTB break these two up in 2014, I will NOT BE WATCHING, for sure.

Phyllis and Nick have the greatest chemistry ever-- Young and Restless just not the same without Phyllis. Also love Adam and Chelsie.., Heard you were getting rid of Adam-- please don't -- love the current story where Adam is making positive changes in his life and is becoming a great father and future husband .

Great choices DC! My #1 is Kristen/ Brady (controversial couple with lots and lots of chemistry), #2 Ava/ Morgan (very unconventional).
LOL at Kevin/Alex, think Y&R!

I agree with very little here of the ones I watch. But that' OK I'm not into couples that much anymore if its a good story I'll watch any couple.

I am intrigued by Ava and Morgan. She is beautiful and he is gorgeous. That pairing is entertaining.

David/Angie good also although I think they weren't going there in the end because of fans.

Sometimes fans need to chill to get the best stories. and heat.

Just sayin.....
