i take a strange comfort in the fact that at least rory’s stepdad will probably have some helpful advice and perspective re: why it is not necessarily a good idea not to tell your ex-partner about your baby’s existence
can i just say how much the revival has made me grateful for season 7. like, asp was going to have rory get pregnant at 22, which would have honestly been the most heartbreaking ending i could think of for rory- a major part of her characterization is that she didn’t want to end up like lorelai, yes she loves lorelai, yes she respects lorelai and appreciated all the sacrifices lorelai made for her, but she didn’t want the life lorelai had. lorelai is exactly where she’s supposed to be- in stars hollow, with the inn, with luke- but rory wanted more. rory wanted to be christiane amanpour, she wanted to travel, see the world, do things, which was a major part of her turning down logan’s proposal because she wanted a ‘wide open future’. how the hell would she have gotten that with a baby? that’s the worst thing- like, you will become your parents whether you like it or not. and logan, too- he becomes mitchum, lives out his huntzberger preordained life, the life he desperately didn’t want, without even being told he has a child. at least in the revival rory is 32, she’s done stuff, she’s lived, but geez, that’s still a crappy ending for the girl who wanted to be christiane amanpour.
I love you. I know the other night didn’t mean for you what it did for me. But I don’t regret it and I haven’t stopped thinking about it since it happened. Not just because it was great which it was. But because it was right. It was so right and you may not see that right now but I do. And if I have to wait until we’re both 80 years old for you to see it then I’ll wait. I’m not going anywhere. This is it for me. You’re it for me. I can’t pretend to feel any less for you than I do. I’m sorry. I just can’t.
i need to know is Lane running stars hollow’s music store? did sookie go on to become a celebrity chef a la rachel ray? did Lorelei and Luke have a child? did THEY HAVE A LITTLE GIRL? did rory become the world traveling journalist she always wanted to become? IS PARIS TAKING OVER THE WORLD? hows emily coping? how many book stores in brooklyn does jess own? did luke get a new hat? is gigi okay? because im not
And so I got a meeting with the Gilmore Girls people…and it was a hilarious meeting, and they were charming and it was lovely, but I made the worst joke in the world.
I told them that I thought I could come into town and be a character who sleeps with both Rory and Lorelai without knowing about it, and it’s a big mix up. I said this as a joke, thinking this would be a funny kind of thing, and they were not into it.
It died hard, this joke, but when that happens to me I always double down on the joke and I’m like ‘Oh no, I want to make sure these people understand that I’m joking, so I’m going to heighten this’.
Then I heightened it a step further to be 'Oh no, what I mean is, I come into town. And I, without knowing, I just, like, plow Rory and then I fall in love with Lorelai’.
It was just awful from then on. I felt like I left the room and they were like 'NEVER’.
