Spoilers for all of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

If you’re reading this, chances are that (like us) you spent the weekend bingeing Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix, and not communicating with anyone that wasn’t fictional and/or an incredibly fast talker.

But even after six hours of our Thanksgiving weekend Gilmore bender, it obviously wasn’t enough to answer all of our Stars Hollow questions. 

After that cliffhanger ending, we’ve got just a few questions we need to talk about, right now:  Read more…

LOS ANGELES — The final four words have officially been said — but have we seen the last of the Gilmore Girls?

Maybe not yet.

“We really had a very specific journey in our minds and we fulfilled the journey. So to us, this is the piece that we wanted to do. And the whole thought about, is there more, is there more, is there more – this has to go out into the universe now. We’ve got to put this to bed,” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino told The Hollywood Reporter. “And then whatever happens, happens.”

It’s a vague response, but Sherman-Palladino gave fans just enough hope that there could be more Stars Hollow stories to come. Read more…

LOS ANGELES —  You aren’t crazy: Emily Gilmore’s new maid Berta in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is indeed a familiar face.

Berta, who is seen in all four episodes of the new Netflix revival, is played by Rose Abdoo, who also plays Stars Hollow car mechanic Gypsy.

Lauren Graham, who plays Lorelai, confirmed the casting overlap on Saturday by tweeting a TVLine article which first reported the news.

Rose read it for fun in a table read because they hadn’t cast it yet, and she was so hilarious they had to double her up! https://t.co/tnfAhHOZIp

Let’s talk about Doyle’s very meta story arc in ‘Gilmore Girls’

This post contains spoilers about Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

LOS ANGELES — Last we saw Doyle, the feminist and former Yale Daily News editor was ready to go anywhere with girlfriend/partner/love of life Paris Geller.

Sadly, in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, we find out that Doyle and Paris’ romance has come to an end and the two are in the process of getting a divorce.

The reason? Doyle (Danny Strong) has gone Hollywood.

“Frankly it was over the minute he wanted to do something creative,” Paris (Liza Weil) tells Rory (Alexis Bledel) as they are catching up in Stars Hollow in part one of the revival, titled “Winter.” Read more…

‘Gilmore Girls’ episode 4 recap: ‘Fall’ gives us the final four words, and plenty of tears

Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fcard%2fimage%2f297228%2fgilmore_girls_a_year_in_the_life_fall_finale

This recap contains spoilers for episode 4 of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, titled “Fall.” And if you already need a refresher, check out our recap of episode 3.

“Mom?” 

“Yeah?”

“I’m pregnant.”

Those are the heart-stopping final four words that Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino always planned to end her beloved series with. 

When you consider the show was supposed to end almost one decade ago, with no possibility of a Netflix revival at the time, it seems impossibly cruel — right up there with The Sopranos in terms of a cliffhanger ending. 

As Lorelai might say, “full freakin’ circle” — especially since, if the Palladinos had been involved with Season 7, Rory would’ve been 23 when she dropped the pregnancy bombshell on her newlywed mom. That’s not quite as young as Lorelai was (16) when she became pregnant with Rory, but it’s certainly young enough to disrupt Rory’s life and career.  Read more…

This recap contains spoilers for episode 3 of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, titled “Summer.” For your reading pleasure, here’s our recap of episode 2.

The seeds of discord that were planted in “Winter” are starting to bear bitter fruit in “Summer,” as we finally see Lorelai and Luke confront everything that’s been left unsaid between them for the past few months. 

Lorelai challenges Luke about going to see real estate with her mother and not telling her, and Luke questions Lorelai on her decision to keep her therapy a secret. They’re both insignificant gripes in the grand scheme of things — the tip of an iceberg of insecurities that neither of them want to voice because their status quo has been comfortable, if not ideal, for the past nine years.

‘Gilmore Girls’ episode 2 recap: ‘Spring’ sees Rory spiraling

This recap contains spoilers for episode 2 of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, titled “Winter.” Check out our recap of episode 1.

If the first episode of Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival was designed to show Emily in turmoil, episode 2 is all about Rory’s descent into madness. 

As Lorelai points out late in the episode, life has been pretty good to Rory so far; she’s had a privileged life with a supportive family, enviable education and an eclectic array of men literally fighting over her through the years, so she hasn’t really had to try hard at anything. 

Indeed, as “Spring” proves, whenever the going gets tough, Rory’s default setting is to throw a tantrum and quit — just as she did when Logan’s father, Mitchum, told her she wasn’t cut out to be a journalist in Season 5, which prompted her to drop out of Yale and move in with her grandparents.  Read more…
