8. Michael Burnham and Ash Tyler (Star Trek: Discovery)

Imagine you're cruising through the galaxy fighting Klingons, uncovering spore drive secrets, and bam - you fall for a guy who's got more identity issues than a spy at a costume party.

Ash Tyler, charming as he might be, turns out to be a Klingon named Voq in disguise. Imagine the surprise dinner conversation that led to - "Honey, I've got something to tell you. I'm actually a Klingon warrior." Not exactly what you'd expect from your average Joe, right? This twist threw a photon torpedo into the mix, making their love story more complicated than trying to solve a Rubik's cube in zero gravity.

We all kind of had a tough time wrapping our heads around this one. On one side, you've got Michael Burnham, the Starfleet officer with a heart of gold and a mind sharper than a Vulcan's haircut. On the other, there's Ash Tyler, or should we say Voq, struggling with a dual identity crisis that would make even the Borg Collective pause for thought. Their relationship was like mixing dilithium crystals with antimatter: potentially explosive and a tad unpredictable.

While some viewers found the drama as enticing as a fresh plate of gagh, others felt it was as confusing as trying to understand Klingon opera.
