I wonder if any of my fellow TV addicts picked up on the subtle (note sarcasm) juxtaposition between our favourite (or not so favourite) couples on last night’s episode of the GILMORE GIRLS? Logan sure has evolved into the perfect boyfriend, choppering (that’s helicopter speak for you) to the hospital to be at Rory’s side. While Christopher was once again MIA, much to the chagrin of Lorelai who had to spend the entire day alone with her mother. But more on that later.
Focusing on Emily, Kelly Bishop delivered yet another knock out performance as she tried everything — from cancelling Richard’s classes to ordering every type of fish on the eastern seaboard — to keep her mind of the fact that her husband is having an emergency bypass surgery. Once again Mrs. Bishop delivered an Emmy worthy performance — particularly the scene where she broke down and cried — that will no doubt be completely ignore come nomination time. Damn you Emmy Voters!
Finally, on to everybody’s favourite pairing, Luke and Christopher. Once again Luke came through in the clutch, doing the most menial of errands for a raving Emily. While Christopher was nowhere to be found. Frankly I couldn’t believe that Christopher would even have the audacity to ask Luke to leave the waiting room when he finally arrived at the hospital. His lack of support for Lorelai is just another nail in the coffin that’s become their marriage.
How great does next week’s preview look? Could Valentine’s Day in Stars Hollow really unite the couple that was destined to be together? Will we actually get a scene with Paris? Where has Kirk disappeared to? Stay Tuned…
