So, for anyone who hasn't seen this week's Gilmore Girls, please do not read. Spoilers upon spoilers are going to be discussed and I don't want to be accused of ruining the "moment" for you.
With that being said...
OH. MY. GOD.
First, let's start off with the periphery, Lane and Zach.
I am still trying to scrape my jaw off the ground.
How cool was that? Honestly, I thought when Zach told the guys that he'll take care of Lane (coming back to the band, of course), I thought he was just going to tell her, "Dude, that poster of yours in the music store is not so cool." The fact that he PROPOSED to her in the most Zach way was just perfect! I mean, I didn't see Lane getting engaged in some room filled with flowers (not so Zach and Lane by any stretch of the imagination) so the fact that the whole diner witnessed the event was just perfect. Even Luke trying to correct all of Lane's order mistakes (is that what you call it when you're being served your meal?) and not pointing it out to her just goes to show that Luke's a softie.
Mayhap Luke should get a cue from the lovebirds that he should step the romance notch up a bit with Lorelai, hmm?
And of course, Gil playing and singing "Holler Back Girl". Eep! From "18 and Life" to playing "Jesus Christ Superstar" on Broadway to covering Gwen Stefani songs. Will he ever take himself seriously? I mean, even his new reality TV show on VH1 with Ted Nugent and other has beens in rock is not going to ever make up for the Stefani event.
Next, the Paris/Doyle Incident. Alright. They hyped the living crap out of this ep. So what did I miss? Anyone? Someone? Bueller? Bueller?
Christopher, Lorelai and Gigi making three. WOW. If there was a brat ever created to be the anti-Rory, Gigi is the one. How could someone run amuck like that? Apparently, Christopher's denial of his daughter's misbehavior is just unforgivable, even if it's to make up for Sherry's absence. Lorelai stepping up to the plate only shows one thing: Christopher will always be her true love. Maybe she'll be happy with Luke but her Dawson to her Joey is Christopher. (Okay, stop throwing popcorn at me now!!!)
Lastly, Logan and Rory.
Where do we start?
The part where they're pulling the whole Jessica Simpson/Nick Lachey thing?
Let's start with this survey:
1. When do you consider being "broken up"? What are the ground rules for being "broken up" to be applicable?
2. Is it possible to be broken up if both parties have not agreed to the situation?
3. During any cooling off period, are you allowed "booty calls"?
4. What kind of friends does your sibling(s) have if they sleep with you? What kind of friends are they to each other if they sleep around with the same person ESPECIALLY if you're the sibling they slept with? Six degrees of separation, hmm?
So, this episode is actually one of the more realistic episodes in this season. The whole dynamic of Rory feeling let down was really felt. The sentimentality of her, falling for Logan's charm and actually questioning his loyalty (and love) was honest and reasonable. There need not be any lashing out. The fact that she walked out stoic was more heartfelt. The fact that Logan didn't deny the affairs, was manly of him, if not, proving that he certainly doesn't "think" with his head that carries the brain.
If you were in Rory's shoes, would you ever take the cad back?
Well, on a side note, here's a little something that was picked up from E!Online. I hope you find it humorous like the other Ickle Girls did. I definitely won't see Richard Gilmore the same way again.
