    Kelly and Brandon were definitely meant to be together. They didn't get married because Jason was going to leave the show. Dylan and Kelly never made it that far. Their relationship was unhealthy and dysfunctional. They didn't belong together and were completely wrong for each other.

    I will say, when I first saw them get together in season 4 I kind of saw it as Kelly not willing to be alone and wanting to jump to the next available guy...but then I thought back on the series up until then, and Kelly was ALWAYS in love w/ Brandon....or at least wanted to be. Even in the pilot, she thought he was adorable. And episodes like (Stand Up) And Deliver....and most obviously Spring Fling, the seeds were always there. I'm wondering how it would have been if Brenda were around when Brandon/Kelly were together...huh

    Kelly just needed to grow up a little, mature...Once Kelly matured, and showed who she really was deep inside to Brandon, how could he not fall in love w/ her?? Sad that they didn't end up together, but I think besides David and Donna and Dylan/Brenda, their relationship was the strongest of the whole show. I love them together!

    As far as I'm concerned Kelly should be with Dylan. They rocked. When I see Kelly and Brandon together it feels a tad incestuous because Kelly and Brenda, Brandon's sister were so tight, you would think they're sisters. And doesn't anyone ever wonder what would have happened if Brandon got together with Andrea.

    Very WEAK argument. If Kelly/Brandon were incestuous because of Kelly's friendhip with Brenda, then I guess that means Ross/Rachel and Chandler/Monica were incestuous too. Kelly and Brandon's progression from friends to lovers was natural, unlike anything about the Kelly/Dylan relationship. Barely ever speaking to each other prior to S3, then all of a sudden cheating on Brenda? Yeah, right. Their kindergarten bond made them incestuous imo. A Brandon/Andrea pairing would've been disgusting. Andrea's chemistry was best with Steve.

    Andrea and Steve would've been an interesting pair. I guess it could've been like the relationship he later had with Clare-- the egghead with the doofus. Anyway, Brandon and Kelly made a nice couple, and it does suck that their relationship ended, but I don't hate the writers for ruining their relationship NEARLY as much as I hate how they ruined Brenda and Dylan. I've watched the original BH 90210 since the beginning, and always and forever I will feel that Brenda/Dylan belonged together and should've been ENDGAME!!!

    It was just so not in character really, is what I thought. Back when he came back for s9/s10 it was like he really didnt care about anyone but himself- even more so than in the HS years. Didnt Gina even call him out on that? If they played up the whole deadbeat dad/traveling around the world/running away angle that we know about Dylan Id respect that more than lying to our faces about him doing CHARITY WORK.

    this was the best show ever, I can't believe they didn't set something up to have Kelly and Brandon end up together. They should have at least done a tv movie kinda like Growing Pains did so that Kelly and Brandon got together eventually.

    i also love kelly/brandon. the way they botched their relationship was just unfair. they belonged 2gether n will always b peeved about how they ended things. her n brandon made a much better couple than her n dylan ever did. BK is the best on the show, by far. Followed by Dylan/Brenda n David/Donna. i realize this is a soap opera but sometimes it gets ridiculous. don't ruin a perfectly good couple w/ a huge fanbase. >.

    The reason that the wedding between Kelly and Brandon didn't happen was because Jason Priestley was leaving the show. They did not make the same mistake that Happy Days did when Ron Howard left. Had Brandon and Kelly married the writers would use the same way that Happy Days did was by telephone which stunk.

    ^We all get why, but it still stunk. And maybe its because I always hated Kelly anyway, but I wouldve been okay with them writing off Kelly to go along with Brandon since JP was leaving. When Chad Michael Murray left One Tree Hill, they had Hilarie Burton leave too because the creator wanted both of the characters together in the end. Since people loved B/K so much, I dont think theyd mind the 2 of them leaving together.
