Rehashing Gilmore News
So, the elopement took place. Here's what David Rosenthal (via Michael Ausiello, thank you!) has to say about the show. Apparently, a lot of fans have bailed watching GG (as I reported, a downward trend of 19% loss of viewership) and recent spoilers aren't really clearing up much stuff. So, here's what's being reported so far:
Question: Can I please have some more Gilmore Girls scoop?— Alli
Ausiello: It's slim pickings, my dear. All I have for you is... wait, what's this? An exclusive interview with show-runner David Rosenthal, in which he discusses the fallout from last night's controversial Lorelai-Christopher nuptials, among other things? How could I possibly have forgotten?
I'm assuming it's not going to be smooth sailing for the newlyweds, right?
David Rosenthal: It's one thing to go off on this romantic weekend and get married; it's another thing to actually come back and deal with the reality of being married. Lorelai's never lived with anyone. They've never really lived together. This marriage puts a lot of pressure on them both. That's the big theme for the latter half of the season for Lorelai and Chris, and for Rory. She's facing graduation and her future, and she's always thought, "Oh, I'm going to be a journalist." Rory's going to open herself up to the possibility that there are other options out there for her.
Rory's going to embark on a new career?
Rosenthal: She's never really considered anything else; now she's willing to consider everything else. And there's the other issue of Logan being back in New York. There are opportunities that could pull her away from Logan. Suddenly, it's no longer a college relationship. It's two people out in the world, so the stakes become higher.
How will Logan's return impact Rory in the short term?
Rosenthal: It will kind of rev up their relationship in good and bad ways. We're going to see their relationship deepen and complicate in many ways.
Will Rory find herself torn between Marty and Logan?
Rosenthal: No. Marty's feelings for Rory will really be the issue; it's not reciprocated. The man is still holding a torch. It's something he just can't seem to let go of, and it'll definitely cause problems. But there's nothing on Rory's end. It's not her thing — it's his thing.
Back to Lorelai and Christopher, fans are speculating that their marriage is going to be short-lived since David Sutcliffe is allegedly only going to be around for a handful of episodes during the second half of the season. And from that, they're deducing that Lorelai will be back together with Luke by February. Your thoughts?
Rosenthal: I'm gonna say, "No comment."
[I don't know about you guys, but that "no comment" spoke volumes to me.]
Question: I heard that Rory gets mad at Lorelai about eloping.— Erin
Ausiello: Actually, I hear Rory takes the news surprisingly well. Luke, on the other hand, finds out when he spots the ring on Lor's finger. That's gotta hurt.
Question: You never talk about Gilmore Girls anymore! What gives?— Candace
Ausiello: I'm inclined to think I more than made up for it this week, Candy. But here's another extra spoilery tidbit, you ungrateful brat: A somewhat reliable Stars Hollow mole tells me that Episode 13 marks a major turning point in the Luke-Lorelai-Christopher triangle. Apparently, Luke and Christopher choose to deal with Richard's health crisis in very different ways: Luke chooses to run around helping Emily, while Christopher chooses to go off and sulk about a bad fight he had with Lorelai. Cue the inevitable Lorelai epiphany.
** What and how does Luke get involved with Emily???**
Anywhoo, other spoilers. Ugly Betty, Grey's Anatomy and Supernatural
Question: Seriously, they need to get that cute accountant on Ugly Betty back on the show!— Keith
Ausiello: He's coming back! Christopher Gorham reprises his role as Betty's nerdy "Mode" crush on Nov. 30.
Question: On Grey's Anatomy, what is Izzie going to spend the money on?— Devynn
Ausiello: [Spoiler alert] Another patient. I think. (So much for that whole, "Don't get attached, Izzie" edict.)
Question: Any prattle on who the bride and groom are in the Grey's Anatomy wedding that Shonda spoke of in People?— Kim
Ausiello: My guess is it'll be a flashback to Addison and Derek's nups, and it'll be followed by her dramatic ring-toss off the ferry.
Question: Any scoop on Supernatural?— Chris
Ausiello: Much like almost every other character on television lately, Sam and Dean will be involved in a hostage crisis later this season. A disgruntled security guard will hold up a bank when nobody believes one of his out-there theories for why the place got robbed.
