Note: Spoilers ahead!
Gilmore Girls came back this year for four episodes, one for each season of the year.
A ninety-minute episode dedicated to show Lorelai’s and Rory’s life through winter, spring, summer and fall (autumn). A truly emotional and feel good four episodes graced our screens and while there was still that obvious sense of nostalgia which told me it would all be ending again, I was still swept up in the stories and comedic moments of this tale.
I wish it had been longer. If I had it my way, it wouldn’t have ended when it did. I think there might need to be some more episodes just to fill in some unanswered questions (wink, wink). Though the idea of Rory having a child is sweet, I would have liked to see her book published, perhaps to be selling well. Lorelai’s wedding with Luke was beautiful, set in an Alice In Wonderland type setting, it couldn’t have been more perfect.
And though Rory made some bad choices in these episodes, particularly having a relationship with her ex-boyfriend, Logan, I was brought to tears when they had their goodbye. Especially when she was saying, albeit in a funny way, goodbye to Colin, Finn and Robert. Heartbreak is never far away on this show and Lorelai finally opens up about the story she had about her father, when she’s looking out into the wilderness, on her hike to find herself, or whatever it is that is broken within her.
We all process grief in different ways. Some of us never truly move on. And that’s okay.
And the Gilmore Girls may have a lot of bumps in the road, wrong doings and good fortunes, but they sure do know how to live life to the fullest and go out with a bang.
