Marco Ruiz and Sonya Cross (Demian Bichir and Diane Kruger), The Bridge
A female cop from Texas who has Asperger's and a male cop from Juarez who likes to bend the rules. Seems like a perfect pairing, right? Yet somehow in Kruger and Bichir's hands, the chemistry between these two unlikely partners crackles. Marco's rule-bending is the perfect counterpart to Sonya's black-and-white worldview — and they serve as nice metaphors for the countries they represent (and the clashes between them) as well.
