For every bad Arrowverse couple out there there’s also a good one. This can even apply to the worst of them: For the one in every show that is the worst there’s one that’s the best. This article takes a look at the greatest Arrowverse couple from each show.
The Flash: Joe West and Cecile Horton
With all the crap he has had to put up with, Joe definitely deserves happiness in his life. And he got a second chance at love in the form of Central City’s DA Cecile Horton. With the two both being single parents for most of their lives, the two really managed to understand the struggles of being alone in raising children and it proved to be a core part of building such a stable and happy relationship between the two. As practically family to the Wests and a member of Team Flash, Cecile proved to be an underrated part of it bringing in something funny and sometimes heartwarming in every moment. The two are almost so healthy it’s too good and knowing relationship drama in the Arrowverse, I keep expecting one bit of foolishness to screw it up. Good on you for not going that route CW! Keep it up.
Arrow: John Diggle and Lyla Michaels
While these two couldn’t work things out between them the first time around, that didn’t keep them from having a stable relationship. Sure they had disagreements but the drama is mostly resolved in lieu of bigger problems. These two knew each other like the back of their own hands and the fact that not too much is focused on their falling outs but still legitimately resolved them proves just how solid they are together. When they do fight it has some legitimate character development or the two actors just manage to knock it out of the park.
Legends of Tomorrow: Sara Lance and Ava Sharpe
Even if you do prefer Sara and Nyssa, it’s undeniable that these two share a special connection. Both started off as enemies with Sara being a rule breaker as a Legend and Ava as a member of the Time Bureau going strictly by the book. But as time went on they found out they had a lot in common and both prior and during their relationship they balanced each other out challenged each other in ways that brought out their best traits. And through all the Legends shenanigans it is always nice when these two get time to just be happy together.
Supergirl: Maggie Sawyer and Alex Danvers
Alex realizing she was gay and her walking the path to accepting that was a very moving journey in itself and her relationship with Maggie not only furthered that but also worked into the show. Both had a lot to learn about themselves and each other when they first met and with each episode not only did they feel genuine in heart and humor thanks to the actors’ chemistry and each scene between them in each episode felt like a step forward not only in their relationship but them as characters. And Maggie proved to be an amazing ally to team Supergirl easily deducing Kara’s identity, being a member of law enforcement, and having expertise in ways Supergirl herself didn’t. Despite being engaged by season 3, due to Floriana Lima getting a role on a new show the two were written to break up over not wanting children and it was heart breaking. Alex has moved on with Kelly Olsen but no matter what they have in the next season they will not compare to these two.
