2013 was an amazing year on ABC and to celebrate we’re counting down the Top 10 Moments of the year from our hit series Nashville, Modern Family, Grey’s Anatomy, Revenge and Scandal. We’ll be unlocking a new Moment every day between now and Monday, December 30th when our number 1 Moment will be revealed. Did your favorites make the cut?
10. Gunnar and Scarlett Get Big News
Our number 10 Moment takes us to Nashville where young, country music hopefuls—and flirtatious roommates—Gunnar and Scarlett get an exciting call about their demo. Even if seeing a cute musical duo doesn’t make this Moment special for you, a shirtless Gunnar sure doesn’t hurt.
9. Aiden Asks Emily to Marry Him
Sticking with adorable couples, our number 9 Moment comes from Revenge when Aiden not only gushes with love for Emily, but he asks her to marry him! And what’s better, Emily actually says “yes!”
8. Everyone Believes Cam is Too Sensitive
We all love Cam on Modern Family, but let’s just admit it—he can be a little oversensitive. Maybe a little melodramatic, even. But that’s all part of the Cam charm, right? We still love you, Cam!
7. Jackson’s Not Invited to the Wedding
On Grey’s Anatomy, Jackson and April have a bit of a complicated history. So when she’s ready to get married to Matthew, there’s a little tension around Jackson being there.
6. “I Wanted You to See the Dream”
And what a fantastic dream it is! On Scandal, President Fitzgerald “Fitz” Grant III continues his romance with Olivia Pope, and he wins her over again by showing her the dream house he had built for them. If you ‘ship Olitz, this has to be one of your favorite Moments of the year.
5. Rayna and Deacon Get Back Together
For number 5 we’re headed back to Nashville where Rayna and Deacon have been fighting their attraction to each other for way too long. Finally, Rayna makes the decision to accept how she really feels and tells Deacon what’s in her heart. These two getting back together after so long is definitely the best Nashville Moment of 2013.
4. Shane Goes Ballistic on Meredith
Meredith Grey of Grey’s Anatomy knows how to deal with tough situations, but she put herself in one with her attitude toward Cristina. Finally, young doc Shane has had enough and he lets Mer have it and says everything Cristina wants to. And how does Dr. Yang react? She plants a big ol’ smooch on him!
3. Jay and Manny Get a Marriage License?
There aren’t many comedy duos that work better than Jay and Manny on Modern Family, and this, our number 3 Moment, is one of their best. They’ve headed down to get Manny’s passport, but it also happens to be the day that same-sex marriage has been legalized. Let’s just say Jay’s chat with Manny draws some looks from the couples in line.
2. Emily Thorne is Pregnant
Bombshell! Our number 2 Moment features Emily Thorne of ABC’s Revenge, who has been on a mission. But everything takes a turn when she breaks the news to Daniel that she’s pregnant!
1. Olivia Pope’s Secret is Out
Here it is, our number 1 Moment of 2013! When you’re having an affair with the President of the United States, rule number 1 is “don’t get caught.” So imagine Olivia Pope’s surprise when she heads out for a morning jog to find herself surrounded by a sea of reporters who all know her biggest secret. And to make the bombshell even bigger, guess who’s waiting to pick her up?!
