your absoloutly right, Lovestoread. Rory can have everything; I think she deserves it. She shouldnt have to choose. Logan will follow her! He loves her and vise versa.

I mean if Paris and Doyle can seem to stick it out while dealing with after college issues, why not Rory and Logan?

Perhaps because Rory and Logan and Paris and Doyle are all completely different individuals, with different thoughts, feelings, needs and lives?

In my view, Rory has always had her journalistic dream, right back from day one of the series.† That she had absolutely no hesitation whatsoever when choosing the NYT fellowship over Logan/SF was very telling to me.† Her career dream is still very much alive, at least at that point in the show.† Why is it so wrong for Rory to choose her career, at this time in her life when she is still young, and just about to embark on her career? Yes, it is possible to have it all - if you are willing to work at it.† But, timing is also very important and if Rory feels that this is the time for her to focus on her career first, that should be her right and shouldn't send so many people into a tizzy. As I said, Rory has always been very focused on her career and this shouldn't come as such a surprise.† In the end, it is her life (fictional, as it is) and her choice. From a storyline pov, it seems very true to who Rory has always been.

And, Paris hasn't been equally as driven?† More, even.† I doubt because Paris and Doyle are together, Paris isn't going to put 125% into her career.† Besides, it wouldn't have to be choosing one over the other.† It's like if she's choosing her career, she has to give up Logan and there's no other option.† Rory didn't even say she wanted to focus on her career first.† Everything that suggested that something couldn't work out came from Paris.† The only thing Rory said was she wouldn't sacrifice location.† Her career is a priority and to help that priority and her priority with Logan (who she herself said was also a priority) she thought they could work on another long distance relationship.† Paris was the one who threw cold water on even the attempt to try.† It seemed there was no question in Rory's mind that she would work on both.† Until Paris decided she knew what Rory meant better than Rory knew herself.

And, why shouldn't this "send people into a tizzy"?† Is it any different from Rory taking time off from school, dating a rich guy, her cooking, going to gym, lack of reading, even the style of her hair, all choices that she had a right to make and all things that sent various people into some tailspin worthy tizzies.†

I agree.† I don't see why it has to be one or the other for Rory.† And Logan's said already that he'd factor Rory in.† It seems to me that he'd be willing to follow her just as Doyle is willing to follow Paris.† Rory can still follow her journalistic dream and have the man she loves.† I don't see why she should have to be alone in order to focus on her career.

Not to mention Roryís own advice to Paris was that you canít help who you fall in love with or when it happens.  Maybe weíre getting worked up over only a little doubt on Roryís end but it was doubt that wasnít there until Paris planted the seed.

There have been times in past seasons Lane didn't show up for at least two episodes in a row.  If you look at season 1, I think she was not in 5 episodes (at least), though they weren't in a row, and some of those episodes she wasn't even mentioned. 

Sharon

it's not about that, she was mentioned in the last episode but ffs, she had the twins in "Gilmore girls only", it's not like in the earlier seasons, this is a (somewhat) major event, and then in "hay bale maze" it was sorta expected to have shown (and the twins) but nada, just a mentioning. so i expected this episode she would be in it, wrong again.

I don't think it could be as cut-and-dried as Rory can have everything if she works for it. Paris is in Rory's head, if she says that doing the long-distance thing again is choosing a career over a mate, Rory would have been thinking it. She said she wanted to factor Logan, but that she wasn't prepared to make career sacrifices to be with him. She can't just ask him to pull a Doyle if his best option is in CA and hers is in NY.

Alternatively, maybe everything but the Reston is second-choice and she will find herself more flexible in choosing among her backup options, but where's the drama in that?

Mostly likely that's the cause and she's got to be written in before the end of the season...especially if this was the portrayed last season, they wouldn't end it without Lane's character, who has been such a great part of the Gilmore's lives not be there...they couldn't.

I watched this episode again and I keep making more mental notes to share.

The Paris opening the acceptance letters STILL cracks me up and I swear at one point I was going to hear her shout: "Bite me Harvard! I'm rejecting you just like you rejected me four years ago! How do you like me now "Biatch"?! Then Paris getting upset because Rory and Doyle were getting sick of cheering, so she started to panic and go into freak out mode. When she cuddled in the corner of the couch in a psycho ward I can't help but laugh.

I think this episode has the best acting from Alexis all season long. This was the first time I didn't hear a mumble, grumble, I knew what she was saying, I was connecting with her character and I actually felt bad when she opened the letter.

I also still love the L/L moments especially when they had a classic clash at the car dealership and then when Luke goes over to Lorelai's house. I still laugh hysterically when Luke starts ranting and then Lorelai smiles and he gets confused because she smiled and then asks if she's going to buy a car today and she replies with an: "Ah, um... no. Not today," she smiles and then starts leaving.

I also still roll over laughing when Luke goes to Lorelai's house and knocks on the door only to see Jackson there. The look on his face still cracks me up! Then when he and Lorelai have a back/forth shouting thing about the bike and the horn. I can't stop laughing at that too.

BTW I noticed the Choppa in that scene in the far left distance so it's still there. I really noticed it when Luke was going up the stairs to her door.

Ah, I keep on forgetting to mention Paul Anka! I love it when he opened the front door and ran right inside the house! That was so cool!

I also rewatched the Lorelai talking with Sookie in the kitchen thing with that Wizard of Oz thing in the back of my head and I resaw the scene I meant to mention but I got mixed up. It's when Sookie asks Lorelai to close her eyes and imagine herself in a new car that's the scene that reminded me of the movie because I was thinking Lorelai might say: "There's no place like home" but she didn't.

Did anyone notice any ruby slippers or something that's supposed to be indicated? Because the ruby slippers are one of the most memorable things in The Wizard of Oz and it should've been hinted in there. I did notice all the red balloons and etc. behind Lorelai and Luke when they started to tif at the dealership but I wasn't sure that was it.

Ah anyway, the only things that sort of disappointed me was no Richard/Emily (come on obvious Wicked Witch of the West with Emily there) and the lack of references all though there were lots of fast back and forth talking. There is a very strong vibe I picked up between this episode, season 7 and the "Bridesmaids" episode I saw earlier today on the ABC Family channel. They have this flow together and I think season 7 is making a lot more sense when I watched this episode again. Just my opinions.

I think some of you should read spoilers

Some of us have read spoilers.  And, so as not to spoil things for those who don't read them, we continue to post here like we have no knowledge of what's going to happen.  Besides, spoilers don't change opinions.

I don't think it could be as cut-and-dried as Rory can have everything if she works for it. Paris is in Rory's head, if she says that doing the long-distance thing again is choosing a career over a mate, Rory would have been thinking it. She said she wanted to factor Logan, but that she wasn't prepared to make career sacrifices to be with him. She can't just ask him to pull a Doyle if his best option is in CA and hers is in NY.

Alternatively, maybe everything but the Reston is second-choice and she will find herself more flexible in choosing among her backup options, but where's the drama in that?

Well, I feel it's as cut and dried that there's something wrong if Rory doesn't even attempt to have everything that's important to her.  If a long distance relationship doesn't work it should be because they see a long distance relationship doesn't work, not because they tossed out the option before they got out of the starting gate.  Yeah, I'm mixing my metaphors.

And, I don't get Paris is in Rory's head.  Do you mean if Paris said something that means Rory was already thinking it before she said it?  In which case, Paris is a mind reader, which means there should be two Gilmore Girls alumni over on Heroes.  Or, do you mean that Paris said something and she planted the idea in Rory's mind that wasn't there in the first place?  In which case, either Rory is really susceptible to suggestion, or Paris has really strong powers of suggestion, and hey, Heroes could use her in that capacity, too. 

*slaps self*  I just realized something.  Paris wasn't even trying to make Rory think that a long distance relationship between her and Logan wouldn't work.  Paris isn't exactly the most empathetic person out there. She was sad about breaking up with her boyfriend.  I doubt she was focusing that much on Rory.  Her comments were all about herself. She just had a convenient sounding board who happened to be in a similar situation that she could project on. She was missing Doyle, but she felt she had to break up with him and she was arguing against Rory telling her that maybe she made a wrong decision and her own feelings that she made a wrong decision.  And, she justified it, by saying Rory would do the same thing.  *shrieks with laughter*  Rory is getting pensive and indecisive over a train of thought where she was actually a minor player?

Spoilers are just RUINING the episodes for me. They end up making me feel disappointed if things don't turn out the way I think they were supposed to go because I heard assorted details about it on spoilers. They can be misleading too. You have to admit that if you read the spoilers for this episode you were going into it expecting Lorelai and Luke to have a big blow-up fight.... look what happened. It wasn't a fight at all! It was just a classic Lorelai/Luke tif. So maybe you can try to be a little more understanding when people would rather kick back and actually enjoy an episode instead of having high expectations that may not be met and then feeling disappointed. I bet you most of the people who complain of how boring GG is now say that because they had read spoilers so much, they knew how everything was going to go and it sucked the fun out of it.

Next season (  Clover ) I am definately NOT going to read spoilers as much as I can help it except for people who post them without warnings.

Thought this was strange..production mistake? I noticed that the letter addressed Rory as Rory Gilmore instead of Lorelai Leigh Gilmore, her actual name.

I am starting to feel the same way about spoilers myself.† I love digging around to find out what is going to happen, but then while I'm watching the episode its not as entertaining.† I feel as though I am waiting for the spoilers, and get confused when the spoiler isn't portrayed on screen as I thought it would.† I'm just not sure if I can kick my addiction to the spoilers though! LOL!
