The debate over which Newport couple is truly superior has long divided fans of The O.C. While some believe that Ryan and Marissa shared a love that was more authentic than anything else, others were behind Seth and Summer all the way, arguing that the show should have focused more on their story.

Both couples had their moments that made us fall in love with them and their relationships. Keep reading to find out which moments made us ship Ryan and Marissa, and which moments made Seth and Summer our favorite OC couple.

10 Ryan And Marissa: When He Saved Her Life In Tijuana

5 Times Ryan And Marissa Were Our Favorite OC Couple (5 Times It Was Seth And Summer)

The first time we knew that we were emotionally invested in Ryan and Marissa’s relationship was probably when they went to Tijuana. Naturally, Marissa nearly died and Ryan had to come to her rescue. We can’t blame her for losing it, though. She found out that Luke was cheating on her and was generally having a hard time.

The phenomenon of Ryan saving Marissa is something that we saw over and over again throughout the series. While sometimes you couldn’t blame her, other times, she was just too much of a damsel in distress.

9 Seth And Summer: The Coffee Cart Moment

Seth and Summer’s romance had so many high points that it’s hard to narrow it down to just five. One of our favorites had to be the coffee cart moment. Seth declared his love for Summer in front of all the kids at school by standing up on a coffee cart and shouting it out to the world.

And it was at this moment that she realized her feelings for Seth outweighed her desire to impress the other popular kids, which was pretty huge for her character. This moment still gives us all the feels!

Ferris wheels will never be the same for us again. After seeing Ryan and Marissa share a kiss on the Ferris wheel, we still get a little choked up whenever we see one. Although Ryan and Marissa’s relationship undoubtedly had more downs than ups, the ups were always filled with magic. They couldn’t just have a regular kiss—of course, it had to be on the Ferris wheel beneath the stars.

If only every Ryan and Marissa moment were this romantic. Sadly, and unbeknown to them while they were riding on the Ferris wheel, their future together was not a bright one.

7 Seth And Summer: Summer’s First Chrismukkah

The first time that Seth introduced Summer to his Chrismukkah invention often gets forgotten about by viewers of the show. It may not have been as memorable as other Seth and Summer scenes, but it was still a beautiful one.

Chrismukkah was Seth’s personal invention and embodied his quirky style, so the fact that he was sharing it with Summer showed how much he was inviting her into his life after watching her from afar for so long. When we saw Summer embracing the Cohen tradition, they were hands-down our favorite couple.

6 Ryan And Marissa: When She Rescued Him From Trey

As we said, one thing we saw a lot of in The O.C. was Ryan saving Marissa. Whether it was from some guy or her mom or herself, Ryan so often had to step in and rescue her. So it made us so happy when she finally took control of the situation, turned the tables, and saved Ryan’s life for once.

When Marissa shot Trey to save Ryan, she made a huge sacrifice. That act ruined her reputation and got her kicked out of private school. But she cared so much for Ryan that it didn’t matter.

5 Seth And Summer: When He Let Her Go Save The World

5 Times Ryan And Marissa Were Our Favorite OC Couple (5 Times It Was Seth And Summer)

They say that if you love someone, you’ll let them go. And if they really love you, they’ll come back to you. That’s exactly what happened with Seth and Summer after graduation. Summer’s character transformation toward the end of the show saw her becoming a green warrior, and she knew that there was work to be done beyond Newport. So Seth let her go.

We weren’t too worried when these two said their goodbyes because Summer did tell him that he was her destiny. It’s still tear-jerking to think that he loved her enough to let her go and pursue her purpose and that she eventually found her way back to him.

4 Ryan And Marissa: The New Year’s Eve Kiss

5 Times Ryan And Marissa Were Our Favorite OC Couple (5 Times It Was Seth And Summer)

New Year’s Eve is always underwhelming. Especially when you’ve seen shows like The O.C. and you’re expecting something majorly romantic to happen. Real life could never be as perfect as the first season of the show when Ryan arrived at the stroke of midnight to sweep Marissa off her feet. This was one of those rare times when these two were our favorite couple.

Annoyingly, Marissa was at Oliver’s party when Ryan went after her, and Oliver caused quite a bit of tension between Marissa and Ryan.

3 Seth And Summer: Their Wedding

The scene only lasted for a few seconds, but it was one of our favorite Seth and Summer moments in the whole series. Ultimately, we think that Seth and Summer are the superior O.C. couple because they did get their happy ending.

The thing we love most about Seth and Summer’s wedding is that they didn’t have to sacrifice themselves to be with each other. Summer went and did her thing with her environmentalist activism. Seth went and did his thing. And they came back to each other because they knew that’s where their destiny lay.

2 Ryan And Marissa: When She Died In His Arms

The most tear-jerking scene in the entire show had to be when Marissa lost her life at the end of the third season. While this meant that she and Ryan weren’t going to get a happy ending like Seth and Summer, it did allow us to see the love between these two characters one last time. Of course, Marissa would never die any other way than in Ryan’s arms.

Seeing the effect that Marissa’s death had on Ryan reinforced how strong his feelings for her were and how much he cared about her, even though they weren’t technically a couple.

1 Seth And Summer: The Spiderman Scene

If we could only ever watch one Seth and Summer scene again, it would be the moment with the Spiderman kiss. Being the comic book geek that he is, Seth wore a Spiderman mask and climbed on the roof in the rain. He fell and ended up dangling upside down before Summer found him and kissed him, just like Peter Parker and Mary Jane.

Watching this moment, it was obvious that Seth and Summer were the real couple to back in The O.C. Though Ryan and Marissa had their moments too, Seth and Summer just had a little more magic.
