“Station 19” has some tough storylines, but when it comes to love it has one of the best LGBTQ+ couples on T.V. Viewers just can’t help but go crazy for the love story of Maya Bishop (Danielle Savre) and Carina DeLuca (Stefania Spampinato).

Maya and Carina’s sizzling chemistry will melt even the coldest of hearts. They just have that certain je ne sais quoi and we love every moment of it. Here are seven times they made our hearts swoon and restored our faith in true love.


Maya realizing she is in love with Carina

Given Maya’s personality, it was no surprise that it took her a while to admit that she was in love with Carina. Unfortunately, she realized it after she made a mistake and ended up hurting Carina. By the time she acknowledged that Carina was the best relationship she had ever had, she was uncertain if she can be forgiven or if she even deserved to. When she rushed to the hospital to apologize to Carina and begged her to get back together, it was the moment  viewers were waiting for. It was clear that Maya was sincere in her apology and we couldn’t help but swoon .Thankfully for all of us, Carina accepted Maya’s apology.


Maya helping Carina grieve her brother

The murder of her brother Andrew DeLuca left Carina heartbroken and overwhelmed with emotions. Understandably, she was hit hard by his untimely demise and she felt guilty and angry which made it hard for her to process the loss. Maya stayed by her side, helping in any way she could. She even took her to the barn of the fire station and turned on the sirens to allow Carina to scream and let out her frustrations.


“I didn’t find my home until I met you, Bambina. You’re my home.”

Our hearts skipped a beat when Carina said this to Maya. They were both having a hard time when Carina decided to go back to Italy because her Visa was about to expire. Maya was angry that they were going to be apart and worried that Carina might end up staying in Italy full-time. The moment Carina said these words, she was reassured.

Every domestic moment they had in their kitchen

It was refreshing to see them just being so in love, exchanging kisses, and hugs from behind as they made breakfast. They always have these fun, light-hearted moments in the kitchen like feeding each other pancakes while smiling and making funny faces. These interactions just scream feeling safe with one another and we can’t help but fall in love with them.


Their impromptu engagement

Carina’s visa being on the verge of expiring brought a new challenge to the couple. Initially, Maya wanted to go with her to Italy but they decided they could manage a long-distance relationship. As the new reality began to hit, Maya started floating around the idea of marriage to enable Carina to stay. Carina was adamantly against it because she doesn’t believe in marriage. Luckily Carina’s friend makes her realize that she is making a mistake. In the end, she decided to stay and propose to Maya saying she would much rather do something she doesn’t want to than lose her.


Their wedding

Maya and Carina’s wedding saw them celebrate their relationship and how far they have come with their loved ones. The sincerity in their simple vows and their giddiness while singing wedding songs melted us into a puddle.


Maya deciding she wants kids

In the beginning, Maya was unsure if she ever wanted kids. She was scared that she wouldn’t be a good mom. They talked about it and in the end, Maya came around. She put her fears away and told Carina she is ready, saying, “I wanna have another version of you that I can count my blessings on.” So sweet!


“Station 19” airs Thursdays on ABC and Hulu.
