Top 10 David and Patrick moments from 'Schitt's Creek'

The world has become bleak since ‘Schitt’s Creek’ went off the air! The one who cherished the show, devoured the love, and came out with a full heart may understand the feeling of emptiness. The show was a trailblazer when it came to building a character arc, progressively progressing a story of love, and writing vivid characters that will be etched in television history forever. ‘Schitt’s Creek’ taught us not to love but to preserve its sanctity. One of the love stories that taught us the value of perseverance and patience was the one between David Rose (Daniel Levy) and Patrick Brewer (Noah Reid).

This is the cue to play Mariah Carey on a loop! When David came to Schitt’s Creek, he had a fractured love affair with ‘love’. The concept was paralyzed when the heart broke multiple times without any healing. David believed in “the wine and not the label.” He loved unabashedly, but he did not find the one to reciprocate the unapologetic love. So, here comes the hero to save our damsel in distress! However, the damsel came with a lot of baggage from previous relationships, which had complex knots. Patrick, very patiently, undid the knots so that David’s love could breathe again and live again. However, the journey that the couple embarked on to untie the tangles had many adorable moments.
