If only there were more votes we could put in... *cries*
If it came down to two - a relationship and a friendship - that really stand out to me and I can call my favourites, it would be the Quentin/Valentina story that we're slowly trying to figure out as the series goes along, and the friendship between Pete and Jake.
What I love about Quentin and Valentina's relationship is that there's this huge history between them and this closure that they've never received to their relationship that is just so compelling - so compelling that even when Quentin is in this developping relationship with Lana (which is just as enjoyable to read), its hard not to root for him and Valentina. They're probably my favourite characters from the show too. I would love to see more moments between past!Quentin and past!Valentina together, because present!Valentina seems so different to the kind of person Quentin would fall in love with, so that also adds this really interesting element to their history that - ugh, they're just too much of a guilty pleasure to read. I love these two!
Now, I do love Lana/Quentin - they're like my "endgame" ship for this series. Rooting for those two in the first season was a highlight for me, and I loved that Chris gave us what we wanted for those two at the beginning of this season - but like any couple that you're rooting for, there's always something that gets in the way of them and that's Valentina at the moment. But instead of being the "bitch, get away from my OTP" its like "crap, I'm torn between these two relationships." At the moment, Quentin/Valentina are my favourite "relationship" because I love when the show explores their history, or shows little moments that speak volumes. So, Quana kind of lost out in this one - but I still love them!
As for friendship, I went with Pete/Jake. Chris, I've arleady told you how much I loved their interactions in the first season, and how much it sucks they're separated so much in this second one. In the words of Barney Stinson, they were "bros". Hahaha. I hope they're reunited this season, because their friendship in the first season was another highlight for me.
RUNNER UP Lex and Amanda. Their power play is EPIC. XD
