This post contains spoilers for the Gilmore Girls episode “Bridesmaids Revisited.” Go away, Dawn.
Well, that was something else, wasn’t it. Lane and Zach getting engaged. I was yelling at the TV, “Don’t say yes, don’t say yes!” I liked Zach until this season. Yet another character assassinated. It should be fun to watch them plan a wedding, though. Rory and Logan being kaput. And nobody said, “We were on a break!” How could that have happened? The longest-running Friends joke of all time! You know Logan watches Friends.
I have to admit that I couldn’t find much to be cheery about as far as Luke and Lorelai are concerned. So I went to the TWoP boards hoping to raise my spirits, and almost everyone there seems as down as I am. However, I did find one nugglet (not even a whole nugget, but a nugglet) that might help. Someone suggested that Christopher/Gigi is actually going to be the catalyst to help Luke and Lorelai actually talk about their issues. Perhaps when they talk about GiGi, April will finally come up, and Lorelai will be able to say, “Look, I want to be involved.” It doesn’t seem to be the case that Luke is deliberately keeping April from Lorelai, more that, for whatever reason, he doesn’t think Lorelai wants to be around April. I refuse to believe that Lorelai is somehow going to fall for Chris. So, somehow, Chris is going to help. I believe this. You should, too.
I have to admit, I think I was wrong, and the wedding we get this season is going to be Lane and Zach’s instead of Luke and Lorelai’s. I still think there’s going to be a wedding, though. I do. We must believe it together. On the TWoP board, I got another nugglet of encouragement: If we give up on Luke and Lorelai, the terrorists win. We can’t let the terrorists win. We owe it to our country to keep the faith.
I am not sure how I feel about the episode overall . . . Mike watched it first, and when I got home he said, “You HAVE to watch it tonight.” And I said, “Really, what grade would you give it?” And he graded it a B-minus. B-minus! And yet he wanted me to watch it! Very strange. I didn’t love it. And yet, Sebastian Bach singing “Hollaback Girl” is one of the funniest things the show has ever done, maybe THE funniest thing. I’m not being superlative there. I can’t think of anything funnier.
Now we’re heading into a hiatus, and the show won’t be back until April. I plan on using this time to watch old episodes to remind myself of why I still watch the show. Last week, I watched the breakup/reunion sequence from last season. Mike came downstairs for part of it and said, “If they break up again, that’s just dumb.” See? Mike gets it. It would be dumb if they broke up. Surely that won’t happen. Everything will be fine.
Oy with the poodles,
