One of the more unusual love stories in Gilmore Girls has to do with Lorelai and snow. This is going to appear in several episodes. Every year Lorelai and Rory take a walk during the first snowfall; even if it’s in the middle of the night. Luke always makes fun of Lorelai’s obsession with the first snowfall and just shrugs it off as weather.
Speaking of Luke, we seem him relate to the town in his very gruff manner in this episode. It all centers on The Battle of Stars Hollow, also known as the battle that never happened. Loyal townspeople waited outside all night to defend their town against a threat that never came and they reenact this every year.
This episode also centers on Lane and Rory as friends. Now that Rory has her first boyfriend and goes to a new school Lane is feeling a little bit left out and lost.
