Gather around, Friends superfans…
On Saturday, writer and comedian Emily Heller tweeted an intriguing theory she came up with about the beloved NBC sitcom, which ran for 10 seasons from 1994-2004.
Her argument? That Ross and Monica had be to related, otherwise the rest of the characters would have sided with Ross’ ex-wife Carol in the divorce.
(Ross and Carol split shortly before the first episode, when Carol realized she was a lesbian. They had a son, Ben, who — fun fact — was played by Cole Sprouse in the later seasons.)
Just realized they HAD to make Monica & Ross brother and sister otherwise all the F•R•I•E•N•D•S would have stuck with Carol in the divorce
