During Let the Games Begin most of the focus is on Rory’s relationship with her grandparents on this show of Gilmore Girls. Up until now they’ve basically just been trying to control Lorelai’s life. However, in this episode they seem to also just be after Rory’s life as well.
This is the first episode where we really see Jess and Rory together as a couple but they both seem too embarrassed to even be in the same room and tend to just run away from each other. Most of the episode takes place at Yale. Richard just says they are going for a visit so that they can show Rory her old school. It seems to be going just fine until he forces her to go into a surprise interview. Lorelai is angry and won’t even ride back in the car with them because she feels like they are trying to sway her to Yale when Rory’s dream has always been Harvard. However, Rory is also mad because she’s upset that she wasn’t given enough time to prepare for such an important interview even though she doesn’t seem to care that much about going to it.
