Having just finished watching last night’s episode of Gilmore Girls, I have to ask: Who’s the mother in the relationship, Rory or Lorelai? I’ve loved Gilmore Girls throughout it’s entire run, but this episode was almost too much! (To paraphrase Chandler:) Could Lorelai BE anymore childish? Whether she was ‘learning’ about the kitchen with Rory, or acting like a five year old on vacation with Luke, I almost found myself being amazed with the stupidity of her character. While Luke was no picnic on this mini-weekend – I completely found myself sympathizing with him, as he no doubt was thinking that his new found ‘daughter’ is way smarter then his soon-to-be wife!
Yet just as I found myself completely turned off by the episode, the show sucks me back in with another fantastic final act. Only this show makes me pity the rich and powerful, and admire the simpler fun lives of our Stars Hollow denizens. It will be interesting to see if Logan follows Lorelai’s path of happiness instead of wealth. Somehow I can’t see Logan slumming it at the Independance Inn to help support his family!
