What starts off as a fun town dance marathon turns into anything but. They Shoot Gilmore’s Don’t They is probably one of the most pivotal episodes of the entire show. At first this episode of Gilmore Girls just seems like it’s going to be quite funny.
Every year there’s a round the clock dance marathon and whoever can keep dancing the longest wins. Usually this is Kirk. Lorelai combs the entire town for a suitable partner but she can’t find anyone strong enough. She does find one partner but his wife gets made when she finds out and doesn’t allow him to dance. So she convinces Rory to dance with her. However, when both Dean & Jess show up trouble ensues. They both seem to only be watching Rory even though Jess has a girlfriend.
