If I was in charge of nominating or voting for the Daytime Emmy’s then this episode of Gilmore Girls definitely would’ve gotten my vote. This is all about how strong Gilmore Girl Lorelai is. It’s one of the most poignant ones of the entire show and it’s called “Dear Emily & Richard”.
This is an episode that flashes back to when Lorelai first found out that she was pregnant when she was 16. It deals with her going to the hospital to give birth by herself. I’m pretty sure she was listening to that “99 red balloons” song. Before this episode I had always thought that Lorelei had left her parents house before Rory was born. However, in this episode we see that in fact she left after. This is all brought about because Sherry is delivering a child and it really juxtaposes what the difference is when you have someone there to help you out as compared to when you don’t and how strong Lorelai had to be.
