Wait mom, let me throw a curveball at you to steal your thunder! (Ala the season 4 finale where she sleeps with dean)
I know this is stupid, because these are fictional characters, but I'm really disappointed in who Rory grew up to be. I just finished Fall and I can't get over how selfish she was throughout all four episodes.
She was always selfish. Lorelei is too.
I think Rory more though, but she grew up here entire life with her mom and grandparents absolutely worshipping her.
I think it would have been funny for her to move into the pool house again. Talk about full circle.
I just finished and I have no idea how I feel. I don't care to see more episodes. I suppose we know how it would turn out since it's just her living her mom's life. Maybe that is the closure...we know she's going to be ok because her mom was ok.
I love Emily and miss Richard so much.
This is a great point.
SO. If we continue down this path, then "Jess" is Rory's "Luke".
I thought the way that Luke & Lorelai were handled worked really well. I can relate to the idea of just kind of being comfortable and happy with where you are but not stopping to really give your overall life much thought and then realizing that years have gone by. Not 9, but still. You just live day to day and don't stop to think big picture because you are happy and don't necessarily feel like anything is missing. That seems true to their characters to me. The surrogacy storyline never seemed like a serious one to me, it was more to drive Lorelai along her journey of contemplating her life and questioning if she really made the right decisions. Because, ultimately, I feel like if one of them had REALLY wanted to have kids, they would have had them. Neither seems to have been pining for a baby.
Yeah, this was crap. It wasn't explored enough but it also wasn't resolved. I could have dealt with them not delving deep into it if it had actually impacted anything for Rory OR if they had gotten back together.
What about those 2 kids? Did I miss the explanation for who they belong to and why they act like bodymen for L&R?
Wait, so there was a lot of talk about ASP having to discuss a "costume thing" with LG for fall. What in the world could this possibly have been? Just something to throw us off? And, really, what could she have needed to discuss anyway, short of asking her to wear something that would normally be not allowed in her contract?
