JD and Elliot- My Point of No Return
I've seen every single episode of Scrubs, and for the longest time, I was convinced that JD and Elliot would be together in the end. Now, I'm not so sure.
In season one, they almost kissed in My Mentor, but JD ends up in the "Friend Zone," though at the end, you think there is still hope. Next, still in season one, in My Bed, Banter, and Beyond, they spend a whole day in bed, and you're SURE they'll be together. But, this doesn't turn out after the two start getting on each other's nerves. You could tell this relationship was trashedby the way they talked to the psychologist. Crash and burn.
In season 2, during the premiere, Elliot talks to her mom on the phone ("Yes, yay Mom, I'm straight.") about how awkward it is around JD, and JD looks for closure. Later that year, during Christmas, in My Monster, JD and Elliot hook up and become sex buddies (in My Sex Buddy). JD thinks there is still hope for their relationship, but no, Elliot breaks it off right when he becomes attached. Strike two.
Season 3, in My Lucky Night, JD tells Elliot about his feelings for her (again) but his timing is horrible, because Sean is now in the picture. And in My Self Examination, JD and Elliot are in a relationship (finally, right?) and JD realizes he doesn't love Elliot. Big bummer.
They keep missing each other, so to speak, and I think this proves that they shouldn't be together. I think they permanently belong in the Friend Zone because they are so good that way. I love them living together in season 5 (and part of season 6). They are not meant to be together because Elliot is engaged and has a pending wedding, JD is about to have a kid with another woman, and none of their past relationships have worked out, so how would this one be any different? Sure, I know that at the VERY end of My Point of No Return, I was hoping they'd hook up (for the umpteenth time). But at the same time, I don't see any way their relationship could work out because of Kim, Keith, and their fatal flaw: fear of commitment.
I think this season and this show should end up kind of
like the Will & Grace finale. I love that they end up being best friends and their kids get married. I thought it was perfect. I want this show's series finale to be perfect too, and I just can't see JD and Elliot being together as being perfect. I hope the writers can come up with something genius to end the show with a bang.
