I am so sorry that you had to get Logan and Rory this way. A way that took them back five thousand steps. Logan turning into a cheater he swore he wasn’t. Rory being a cheater too. This is not what I wanted for Logan at all. I always said if Rory and Logan being together made sense and was a good story I would be happy, but I feel like this is a huge slap in the face to all of you too.
Sincerely a Jess fan who was rooting for Logan to have a better storyline.
Okay, I need to talk about Jared’s Dean scene in more detail now that I’ve watched it a couple times.
-can we talk about the outfit they put him in? Pea coat with popped collar, really nice grey shirt that, had he NOT been wearing the pea coat with popped collar, would have left Rory in a drooling mess. PLUS skinny jeans? Like guh.
-that even though it is a small scene, the dialogue reveals a LOT about what Dean has been upto: - he lives in Scranton with a wife. They have three kids, all boys, with another on the way. -This means he’s in a dedicated and healthy relationship. He’s not spent his life pining. The mistakes he made as a 19 year old are not haunting him the rest of his life. He found someone to be happy with and that makes me happy. -That Rory’s lack of surprise when he talks about said kids or wife says that this isn’t the first time they’ve run into each other over the years. She knows he’s married, she knows he’s got kids. It means they’ve stayed in (at least peripheral) touch, even if its only through perhaps Christmas cards. -His clothes say ‘success’ to me. Not rich, but he’s not struggling. Maybe he did go back and finish college? I’d like to think so. Maybe that’s where he met Jenny.
-In all, it seems like he got himself together. I’m happy about that.
Next, can we talk about how Jared was able to revert to Dean’s cadence, body language, and speech patterns really flawlessly I felt? After playing one role exclusively for years, matured physically a whole ton, and been away from this character, I was pleased to see Dean’s speech patterns and body language matched pretty well. Especially when he asks Rory if she’s “just okay”.
Also, and I’ve already spoken about this in a previous post. But it was absolutely NO ACCIDENT that Dean’s wife was named ‘Jenny’ and was referred to as a ‘Saint’ helping take care of young boys. It was absolutely a shout-out to Gen and what she does for Jared, and I was pleased as punch to see that. That ‘Jenny’ was pregnant with a girl on the way was just icing on the cake (tho the timing on that line HAD to be an accident).
