So Gilmore Girls finally sees Logan turning into the jerk we knew he was from the beginning. I knew him being the productive nice guy was too good to be true. With Richard Gilmore not cooperating with Emily after his heart attack, the three Gilmore girls are on their way to Charlotte via a road trip. But Logan tracked her down and showed up at the wedding to talk to her. Rory has grown up and Logan’s showing up to make a grand gesture isn’t working anymore. I’m proud of Rory for sticking to her guns and being angry with him. Unfortunately, things were tied neatly with a bow in the end anyway. Who has these big conflicts that resolve themselves so quickly and nicely? It is unrealistic. But then, I don’t really like Logan anymore anyway.
Lane and Zack cooked dinner to lure Luke to her house to ask him to be the Godfather for her twins. The last episode, Lane asked Rory to be the twins’ Lorelai Gilmore. Lorelai was the adult Lane always felt able to talk to about anything without feeling judged. I think it is great she feels Rory can be that for her children. Zack’s freaking out about becoming a father is hilarious – completely understandable but hilarious.
It was nice to see Emily, Lorelai, and Rory having a pleasant time watching a movie and eating junk food together in the hotel at the end. I know their relationship isn’t perfect, no one’s is, but it is always refreshing to have the glimpses of happiness. That’s what has endeared Gilmore Girls for so many years and I feel it had been lacking last season. The show is more interesting now that it is actually the girls and not one at a time anymore. The show didn’t work with Lorelai and Rory not speaking; the charm was missing.
