Gilmore Girls opens with a town meeting. This one is worse than most of them with the presentation from Kirk as a ploy to make the town of Stars Hallow more charming to lure tourists. It is also the easiest meeting in that everyone agreed with the idea. That is, until Lorelai finds out the Dragonfly Inn is on Sores and Boils Alley.
Emily is wondering about Lorelai when Richard mentions he saw her after the fire. Seems everyone in the family refuses to be the bigger person and apologize to each other. Instead, they simply pump others for information.
Logan pops around again with a Hermes bag for Rory. Richard intercepts him at the end of the night and takes his turn at pumping information out of someone. Apparently Logan thinks Richard wants to check out Logan’s intentions towards his future with Rory. Once Emily finds out about the purse Logan bought Rory, she too is convinced something major is going on between Rory and Logan. Emily and Richard search the pool house for evidence of what Rory is up to. Rory tells Logan she loves him.
Someone keeps sending random packages to Lorelai. After opening quite a few packages containing what looks like tacky Home Shopping Network buys, Lorelai figures out from where the packages are coming. Emily is sending things to “smoke Lorelai out of her foxhole.” Emily threatens to give away Lorelai’s dollhouse. Richard brings it to her and says they need to talk about Rory.
