What she says: I’m fine
What she means: Jess Mariano most likely grew up in an abusive household with a mother who didn’t want to be a mother. He was a good guy, who had a lot of problems and bad communication skills. He didn’t understand that Luke loved him because he never experienced that type of relationship before. And Rory is probably the first girl, no, first person he has ever cared about and he ran because he was scared of disappointing Rory, like he disappointed everyone else (his mother, and Luke). He is the only character (aside from Emily and that’s including the Revival) who had the best character development. He was an angry teenager who became a successful, happy adult. And he doesn’t get enough appreciation.
