Though a reunion was expected at some point, it did not seem like there would be any rekindling of romance, given the muddy history between the two women. But to the astonishment of viewers, Piper and Alex share a kiss in the prison’s chapel.
This scene was what viewers were hoping for but it was still totally shocking as the broken history between the two characters made it seemingly impossible for them to reconcile.
Fox and Scully
That’s why the kiss between Fox and Scully in season seven, blindsided X-Files fans. While in an alternate universe, Fox and Scully finally share a passionate kiss, making fans' dreams come true.
Although the two wouldn’t make their relationship official for years, the surprise of the first kiss kept the romantic tension (and the fan’s interest) alive.
Orange Is the New Black
The highly acclaimed series Orange Is the New Black follows Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) as she ends up in jail alongside her ex-girlfriend, Alex (Laura Prepon).
The show’s flashbacks reveal that the two women were romantically involved and how Piper finds herself in jail because of Alex’s criminal activities.
Edge of Tomorrow
In Edge of Tomorrow, Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) is caught in a devastating time loop that sends him back to the day before he died in battle again and again.
While trying to escape from the time loop and simultaneously save humankind from an alien attack, Cage pursues the help of Special Forces fighter Rita Vrataski (Emily Blunt).
Cage and Rita
Because of the intense, action storyline, the filmmakers struggled to find a moment where a romantic scene between the two could be appropriate. Emily Blunt, however, truly acted as the leading lady and took the initiative to kiss Tom Cruise during an unexpected scene.
Though it was not planned, it added greatly to the storyline, showing that Blunt was right to follow her instincts.
