Wow - quite an ending. I must say, after my last post, the show got much better!  Therefore, the last ten minutes of the show i really liked (bad english sorry) i liked the  heart to hearts with Paris and Rory, and the Luke/L parts got really good! Last scene with them - very nice - old times.  Good writing finally.

ok, no spoiling then.

bye.

That was the best episode all season.  It made me laugh out loud, smile and just stirred up all emotions the way the girls used to.  From showing lorelai at work, through the banter with luke and jackson and sookie, paris nuttiness.  IT was the best hands down.  
A good return

Rory!!
I felt like I was in Rory's position when the camera zoomed in on that letter...
I just felt my heart sink with her.

I'm a senior in high school and I'm going through something similar to Paris: waiting for responses from colleges.
And although the character of Paris is a bit extreme, I noticed that I'm a lot like her.
Oh man, the way she was all exploding with happiness as Rory read off those acceptances. Soo funny! When she yelled at the Harvard letter too!
And when Paris was just getting confused when she kept getting acceptances instead of being happy, I felt like that would be something I would do..

I wish I had a Doyle! Not a person that would devote everything to me, but just a person that would love me enough to go that far. They don't have to carry it out... but just the words would be good enough. I really liked Doyle's character after today.

OH MY GOD, I am  freaking out right now because of the  preview to next weeks episode, I dont want Rory and Logan to get married. Anyway, I'm glad that Lorelai gets to keep her jeep and that things are getting better between her and Luke. I want them to get back together so bad! Poor Rory, she should have taken that job, but you have to take risks. They need to show more of Lane, Zach and the twins, they always talk about them but you never seem them. Lorelai riding her bike to work was so funny, to me that was the highlight of the episode.

Hey everybody, it's me again. I thought that this episode was great and sad and happy and not quite as filled with symbolizym as the previous episode. I'm going to talk about the things I found interesting, symbolic, etc. in this episode.

1. The convo on the Dragonfly's porch, where Lorelai is just talking into her cell phone, was extremely forced and you could completely tell that there was no one on the other line. I liked it better when they did split screen Luke/ Lorelai.

2. Ok so: Luke is to Lorelai as Sookie is to Jackson. WHAT?? Well, I'll explain. Sookie is mad at Jackson for something he did and didn't tell her about/ lied to her about. Luke is mad at Lorelai for very, very similar reasons. So, Sookie/Jackson/Luke/Lorelai are all going through a similar turn in their seperate relationships at the same time.

3. I think that Jackson crushing the dollhouse is very significant. Him crushing the dollhouse sort of signifies how, after leaving Luke, Lorelai's dreams of a happy home with him were crushed. I don't know, I could be wrong, but it seemed very important to me. Smiley

4. Luke doing favors for Lorelai towards the end of the eppie kinda seems like old school GG to me. Luke always doing favors for Lorelai, her never thanking him but always playfully asking for more.....very season 4. This could be foreshadowing, saying that things will be like old times between them.

5. I've also noticed that Paris and Doyle had the same kind of revelation, if you will, about jobs/careers, as Rory and Logan did. In both situations, the male half of the couple told the female half that they would go wherever she goes. This could also be shadowing the Sookie/Jackson/Luke/Lorelai timing mentioned in #2.

6. Paris was really bringing down Rory with her talk of not being together with their BFs if they went long distance. I dont really know who to listen to, what with all the rumors of Rogan breaking up, but I think that with Rory not getting the fellowship, this could potentially lead to the Rory/Logan break up. Of course this theory terrifies Rogan lovers such as myself, but all things considered: Rory had a lot riding on the Fellowship, AND Logan had given Rory his word about factoring her in. This gives Rory a sense of confidence, but with the looming Fellowship down the tubes, our beloved Rory could have a very Paris-like breakdown.

And finally, in a way similar to last week's eppie, a quick, interesting, probably-non-existant-clothing-symbol:

7. Luke was finally wearing his signature plaid again!!!! Obviously, he is ready to take on Lorelai again. Now, if only he would change that baseball cap...

Smiley I hope everyone has been able to endure my ramblings for another week!! Tell me what you think by posting here or messaging me!! <3 Alyssa

I thought this was a really good episode. Really well written. I was laughing out loud a LOT. I loved the Luke and Lorelai squabbles. And the Paris/Rory moments except for when she told Rory that her career was more important than Logan. And my heart broke for Rory when she didn't get the fellowship too. I kind of had a feeling, because I mean, they can't make everything go her way, can they? It's not realistic. But I'm still sad for her. And the Sookie/Jackson/Lorelai stuff was funny too. I thought it was a great episode. Our girls are soo back.

Loved this episode.
But not so much the previews for next week's show and the fact that Rory was so upset at the end.
Wow.
Logan and Rory married. Noooo.
No. Oh Noes
They should stick with staying bf gf for longer.  Tongue
And I totally wish that Lorelai would get married first, poor thing!XP
I loved the Luke and Lorelai spat. Cheesy

Just a reminder that even previews for the next episode are considered spoilers and should only be posted in the spoiler or preview thread, not the episode thread.  Smiley

Wow, I think it’s very interesting that this time around Paris gets everything and Rory gets… well I was going to say nothing but that’s not appropriate because there are a lot of other options out there for her, but not exactly what she wants.  Very different from four years ago. 

I like that Paris and Doyle seem to be making the final decision to stay together and have great opportunities.  It’s good that after the discouraging talk from Paris at the bar, she and Doyle worked it out similar to how Rory and Logan worked it out last episode.

Lorelai and Luke.  Bickering.  Funny.  They actually reminded me of the way they were before they started dating, that’s the Lorelai and Luke I liked.

Awe this was really bitter-sweet!  Lorelai looked so cute awkward-tango thing with luke....

I feel bad for rory... poor thing, so desperate... I wonder though - remember how it was "harvard, harvard, harvard" and no other places she would give herself options? I mean, yes, princeton, yale, were accepted and yale she went to... I guess my point is, this is where she just picked ONE application to run for and is now hit the wall and time's running out. 

She wanted just one thing, didn't get and can't think of another place to run to... I kind of feel like her in my life but I'm not waiting for a letter... I'm still trying to get through math. LoL.

This year is going to end with us on our toes! Well, I'll be on my toes, don't know who'll be with me.

I am so happy! That was a good episode! Lorelai was Lorelai and Luke was Luke and the ackward thing disappeared the minute Luke started ranting. BTW that wasn't really considered a "Big Arguement" like spoilers said so don't rely on those anymore. It was a Lorelai/Luke tif which I really missed! Seriously the last L/L tif was in "Fight Face" and "Let Your Balinkas..." episodes and maybe if they had argued a little more when April came around instead of supressing things, then maybe they could've communicated better. This is just the way they communicate. I loved how happy Lorelai was when she realized it herself! Bravo! And the reaction on Luke's face when he opened Lorelai's front door to see Jackson standing there was HYSTERICAL! I laughed so hard because I swear I saw anger and confusion in his eyes. I could tell he was wondering if he had the right house or did Lorelai sell it to Jackson or something. Ooo I know Lorelai is sleeping with Jackson now! How scandelous!   What  Cheesy

Also did Paris kicked ass tonight! Paris Gellar doesn't hold a grudge.... no... not her.... nope ( Smash ) I especially loved the "Screw Harvard" thing she had going. Paris drinking beer, she didn't really seem drunk did she? But it was scary to see her drink that much.

Oh and when Jackson broke the dollhouse and Paul Anka was sitting in the wreckage I laughed.  Cheesy

The only complaints I have are: no Richard/Emily, or Lane/Zach, and some of the shots of scenes that were taken were kinds strange (why was the camera on Paris when Doyle was saying I love you? That was weird.)


I came off watching this episode with a huge sigh of relief and I hope it only gets better from here. My rating A for effort B for follow-through.

Well.

Overall, I liked this episode.  It did seem very short though, and maybe that's just me.  

I am seriously considering becoming a Spree.  All the spoilers I read about Paris and Doyle breaking up had me worried...they are so funny together.  But then the end, with Doyle, was so sweet.  "So you're saying if I go to Alaska, you'll follow me there?"  "I've always wanted to try dogsledding."  And I'm so happy Paris got into all of her schools...that whole scene made me feel good for her.  And I wonder if she'll stick with being a doctor.  "It's the closest thing to God."

I am so sad Rory didn't get into it.  I read the letter with her and felt my heart stop.  I was so disappointed.  

Luke and Lorelai was good.  I liked the awkwardness.  Maybe I was the only one, but I liked the fight as well.  Well, not even fight, darn spoilers.  Lorelai's smile was very good.  She looked so happy that "old Luke" was back.  

I love Sookie and Jackson.  This has been something like the first mention of the baby since Sookie found out she was pregnant.  But we still don't know any details about this child...due date?  But Lorelai looked sad when they wrecked the dollhouse.  

I was worried Lorelai was going to get a new car...I can't imagine her without the jeep.  I'm glad (so it seems) she's sticking with her other car.  

I love Kirk and his tangent about Lorelai's seat.  And wow, she hasn't been in the diner for a long time.  I didn't know it was that long.  I guess I knew, but it didn't seem that long.  (Although Lorelai did have Luke's coffee that Sookie brought that one time.)

Uhh...that's all I believe.  I still feel bad for Rory.  She was all worried in this episode about not getting it, and then, now, it's just scary for her I bet.

I cannot begin to explain how happy I was with the Lorelai and Luke interactions tonight.  When they started fighting at the car dealership I had the biggest smile on my face.  This is the moment I have been waiting for.  Luke ranting and Lorelai talking about Luke's blood sugar was so classic!!  Also the mention of the bathroom tiles.   Then Lorelai's smile, she knows what a great moment it was  Wink  It felt right between them.   How awesome that Luke went through all that trouble to find Lorelai her "old" car.  This again proves how much he cares about her.  Luke, "come by the diner so I can put some air in those tires."  They are friends again!!!   

The scene with Paris opening her letters...I was laughing so hard.  I bet when they filmed that scene there were numerous takes!  Smiley  I knew once Paris broke up with Doyle she would miss him and I am glad to see Doyle come back and say he is willing to go anywhere for her. 

Sookie and Jackson scenes were a nice change.  I am glad they talked and now seem to be on the same page.  The poor doll house. Lorelai's face was so sad when they broke the news. 

Rory-  my heart sank when I read the letter.  Poor thing.  After watching Paris get in to all those schools!  I like how the camera zoomed in so it felt like we were in her shoes.  Rejection is hard but I know Rory will get a great job!  She will bounce back. 

More thought to come..so much running through my brain, and I am sure there are a ton of posts to read!!

Well, I can't say why, but my excitement over Paris getting into every school has tapered off.  But, still, at the start of the show, I was saying, Yes!  Vindication!  This makes up for being rejected by Harvard.  But, when did Paris ever want to be a lawyer?  Paris wanted to be a doctor from the first season of the show.  Even trying to pick between medicine and journalism (based on her working for both the Chilton paper and the YDN) makes more sense than law.  But, Paris?  Shut up.

I'm glad Lorelai still has her Jeep. 

So, I guess the need for Logan to look for a shoe selling job or the question of whether or not he's pretending to do something is a moot point now, since he's actively taking meetings in San Fransisco? 

Short post.  Yes, I'm as shocked as all of you.

As far as Logan's San Fran meetings, did we get an explanation this episode as to what kind of job it is?  My satellite kept freezing and I would get sound but no picture, I didn’t think I missed it…
