I usually try to do something witty with the recaps, but so much happened in this episode & I’m so excited to write about it, I just can’t think of anything witty. First off Grandma & Grandpa Gilmore sang a song they wrote to Rory during a party they threw for her. I guess the writers are trying to make the transition easier for us, as I’ve already written about how stars singing karaoke is the kiss of death, but even that couldn’t ruin the episode. Grandpa Gilmore is in fine form again, I guess they didn’t have time to explain why he had been so cranky lately. Logan proposed to Rory in front of everyone, it reminded me of “Friends” where Monica says Rachel always tries to steal her thunder. Rory had a classic Rory freak out, what should I do moment & said that she would have to think about it. This was so reminiscent of when Dean first told her that he loved her & then they broke up. Rory eventually decided that she wanted to have the whole world open to her & Logan said we either get married or break up, so they broke up.
In other news that also isn’t witty, I think I’m glad that Luke & Lorelai didn’t get married last season. It would’ve been interesting to see what happened, but then the fans would’ve blamed it for the end of the show, which often happens when the love interests of a story finally get together. I don’t know if we will see a full Luke/Lorelai reconciliation next week, but I really hope it doesn’t end like Seinfeld.
I especially liked how true to college graduation they were. I was hoping that they would be realistic & they were, Rory didn’t give a speech. In fact, few people even clapped or noticed. I thought that Christiane Amanpour was going to be at Rory’s graduation, but I guess that comes next week. My favorite part is that Stars Hallow was so upset that they all couldn’t see Rory’s graduation that they are going to re-enact it next week! What did you think of tonight’s episode? How many times did you get teary eyed? (four for me).
