nag hammadi is where they found the gnostic gospels

so I watched the ep where Jess tells Rory he loves her last night

and what stunned me more than anything was the incredible… insight we get into Jess’ character that episode. lbr, more so than the entire season where he lived in Stars Hollow.

first of all: Jess returns to Stars Hollow for his car. He clearly isn’t with his father anymore and is sensible enough to know that, if he has a car, he has a roof over his head. It gives him some stability. It shows just how fiercely independent Jess is (a recurring theme this episode).

(tldr; Jess Mariano is a complex character who seeks emotional and physical independence due to the turmoil in his childhood caused by shitty parents, and everyone treats him like an asshole for it, and they shouldn’t because that boy is my cinnamon roll and I will fight anyone who says otherwise)

[[rest under the cut bc I went into full on rant mode and I’m not even sorry]]

LORELAI: Cold, cold, cold, cold ! Icy feet, stupid frozen-tundra house!

Okay, here’s the question for today, kids. What the hell are the Eskimos thinking? I mean, yes, the hoods are cute, but it’s always cold. Always! Plus you have to eat fish for breakfast and you have to eat whales and then polar bears and penguins and Santa Claus…

Nag Hammadi Is Where They Found the Gnostic Gospels

There are many reasons I love this episode, including TJ owning an etch-a-sketch and Luke’s handful of Barbie. But the last scene is the reason I’ve seen this episode about 60 times. *sigh* Why can’t these two crazy kids just work it out?
