I thought it was interesting that the part of Emily that enjoyed power and propriety "died with Richard." It sort of explains why, after everything they'd been through, all it took was one drunken rant to put her and Lorelai back at square one. Emily majored in History at Brown, and is clearly still passionate about historical accuracy as she retires to curate the whaling museum. Could it be that all her social posturing and political ambition was part and parcel with her devotion to her husband? Her relationship with Richard's mother suggested that she struggled to fit in with the Gilmores, and she occasionally showed flashes of temper and humor that seemed completely at odds with the Victorian propriety she aspired to as a Gilmore.
Maybe, just maybe, the severe social standards that she maintained (that made Lorelai's rebellion and defection so hard to cope with) was more for Richard than it was for her. Maybe she would gladly have thrown it all away to embrace her daughter if it hadn't meant betraying Richard's values as well. Then he dies. She wakes up not giving a damn about the things that drove a wedge between her and Lorelai in the first place, and, in her secret heart, blames Richard for the distance between them.
Then, right in the middle of this profound anger and doubt, when she needed some confirmation that she hadn't wasted her life and destroyed her family for the sake of "the Gilmore Way," Lorelai relates an anecdote that makes it sound like he didn't really love her. It should have been funny, but there was too much pressure on the moment that Lorelai couldn't have possibly known about. And Lorelai can't apologize because she doesn't understand what she is apologizing for.
So they thrash about in their separate grief until Emily finds a life to live for herself and Lorelai tells her that in spite of her resentments, she always felt her father's love for her. And so they both come to terms with the fact that, while knowing Richard Gilmore wasn't always easy for either one of them, neither could imagine a life without him.

I dunno, if that's the attention span Rory has for her bfs, it would explain a lot! I kind of liked Paul, he reminded me of what's his name, Alex. And he seemed to have a lot of characteristics that her previous boyfriends lacked. I mean, clearly he's not the jealous type like Dean. And he's extremely considerate of her family and friends the way Jess wasn't. Plus long distance seems to be just fine with him. Vote for Paul, he's got enough long-term memory for the both of them!

Was it just me, or did anyone else notice how very much like Logan, Christopher looked at the end of the scene when Rory went to visit him at his office during "Fall"

The way he shoved his hands in his pockets and dropped his head ... his hair cut ... even his clothing style ... it was almost as if we were looking at both of them at the same time in some strange way.  Then I remembered back to the episode when Logan called her "kiddo" and Rory quickly objected to that nickname.  It was almost a little nod to Christopher even back then ... even though I know it was totally unplanned at the time.  Anyway,  I loved how they wrote these two characters into Rorys life ... neither really making the effort to put her on the front burner ... both trying to buy her affections and loyalty in a way ... both loving her more than they felt they deserved, but neither feeling in some strange way they deserved that special place in her life.  Of all the scenes in this episode, I re-watched this one the most ... it was utterly fascinating in a sad, slow motioned. rock-a-bye baby sort of way. 

But ... on a lighter note ... the playing of Sam Phillips song, "Reflecting Light" for the marriage sequence was genius at getting all my stuck tears to start rolling since it was the song Lorelai and Luke first slow danced to at Liz and TJ's wedding! .... and Emily finally getting some closure and  at LONG last, finding peace in her life by the water (in nature - her own little "Wild" if you will).  By that point I was on Kleenex number two! haha

The synchronicity was very fluid in this episode.  I loved every MOMENT of this!!!   Smitten

I saw some of it and.... did I hear Emily Gilmore go 2Pac on the DAR?  Her saying "Bullshit" was shocking.

This isn't meant to be an all-encompassing review... just sharing a few initial thoughts to see if we can get a little discussion going. 

Smitten Things I loved:
  • Rory's voice when she said, "Wrapped in plastic!"
  • Paris.  Everything with Paris.
  • Lorelai and Emily's fight.  (Great acting with cutting dialogue.)
  • Luke's responses for the Wi-Fi password.
  • The episode ending with "Here You Come Again" by Dolly Parton.

 Sleepy  Things I didn't love:
  • Paul's forgettable backstory.
  • Lorelai and Luke never had a real conversation about starting a family?
  • Kirk and Ooober.

 What  Things I didn't see coming:
  • Rory being with Paul... and Logan.  "Vicious Trollop" lipstick, anyone?  "Dirty Whore" was taken.  (I'm kidding.  Maybe.  Who knows.)

Whatchoo got?   TV

Woot woot, I hope this place will be popping.  We need a discussion area to stay organized HEIDI!;)

Ask and you shall receive!

Let me know if you run into any issues posting.  It's been a long time since I've created a new board and Younger Me was much better at it.  Wink
