There was a fire in the Dragonfly Inn’s kitchen. Richard Gilmore set up the inn’s insurance, so it requires Lorelai and Richard facing each other once again. Naturally, it turns into another confrontation about what is going on with Rory.
Luke and Lorelai dine with Sookie and Jackson. The entire meal Jackson and Sookie are yelling at their children. How unpleasant.
The ladies in the DAR are having a crisis because they can’t sell all the tables for a fundraiser. Rory is brainstorming for them as to how they can fix this jam in the last week before the event. Emily feels left out that Rory is the one saving the day. And save the day she did, she sold out the event.
Logan’s parents show up to the event—unannounced—and Rory must put her personal feelings towards them aside. Then she realizes that if it weren’t for Logan’s dad, she wouldn’t have quit Yale. Richard Gilmore discovers this truth in the bathroom with a confrontation with Logan’s dad. Emily takes it upon herself to share her opinions on the matter with Logan’s mother too.
Paris’s parents apparently owe the IRS quite a bit of money and thus all their funds are frozen. If it isn’t one thing with Paris it is another thing to complain about. She needs to get a job, but hasn’t ever had one.
Miss Patty has her annual recital. Lorelai goes with Sookie while Luke goes camping alone. Or so we are led to believe. Luke returns early, not having enjoyed camping on his own. Or at least not appreciating his banishment to the woods.
This was a good episode. I think it finally dawned on Richard and Emily what is going on with Rory. It seemed as if Richard’s heart was breaking at the end.
