Oh god the realness of Application Anxiety.

Seriously. This whole episode is painfully accurate.

I remember when I was applying to college and my dream in life was to go to Brown. And then my mom got sick. And then I didn’t have any money. And then I ended up staying in Louisiana at a college I hated. And then I had a nervous breakdown and moved to Texas. And then I moved back to Louisiana to attend another college I freaking hate. And now I’m considering law school, and this whole cycle is about to start all over again.

It’s funny how things turn out.

Oh Rory.

Did you really think Jess would spend all summer waiting for you? Especially after you ran off and asked him not to say anything about the kiss and then DIDN’T CONTACT HIM ALL SUMMER? And then DIDN’T BREAK UP WITH YOUR POOR SAP OF A BOYFRIEND?

That is some Lorelai-level naivete, gurl.

At some point I need to talk about Paris.

But I love Paris so much, and she’s got so many great moments coming up. I can’t decide when is the right time to do my feelings dump.

Just a forewarning: Paris Gellar is one of my favorite characters of all time. As such, I have a lot of feelings about that. Like, SO MANY.

For now, I’ll just say that I am LIVING for her in DC. Watching her make senators and congressmen and women uncomfortable is my life’s blood. And her and Jamie are the CUUUTEST. 

PS totally love her quiet disgust at his being a Princeton man.

She is my khaleesi.

The Kiss

You all know the one. 

The grounds of the Independence Inn are looking unbelievable gorgeous, there’s a general air of frivolity and fun and romance all over. Everyone is in a great mood and ready to celebrate the marriage of two totally awesome people. Spirits are high, Chris and Lorelai think they have their shit together, Rory thinks she’s finally getting a dad, things are generally looking up.

And then there’s Jess. Standing there looking precious and unsure and gazing at Rory with those stupid puppy eyes and his stupid terrible face. What did he think he was going to do? Skulk into the wedding being attended by a bunch of people who hate him, wholly uninvited and unwanted and under-dressed, just to say hi to Rory? This stupid kid and his stupid, fluffy, romantic heart.

And Rory, with her equally stupid puppy eyes and stupid terrible face, spots him and looks like the bottom just dropped out of her stomach. Incoherent and completely wrong-footed, her reaction to seeing him is pure instinct. Her entire body is telling her that he came back for her, and that prospect is so wildly thrilling that it propels her forward: BOOM.

There’s the kiss heard round the world. And, in the unlikeliest of scenarios, Rory is the one who initiates First Contact. And Jess, who likely never ever wanted to put Rory in this kind of situation and who definitely never wanted to be the Other Guy and who probably didn’t plan for this scenario, kisses her back like coming up for air is no longer an option. 

And he looks so surprised and guilty when she breaks away and YOU JUST KNOW he’s going to blame himself for what is entirely Rory’s mistake. And then she tells him not to say anything, and his face falls a little bit because he doesn’t want to be her dirty little secret.

But then she says, “Welcome home,” and he knows he’s back in the game. But also she’s the only one who ever believed or made him feel like Star Hollow was his home, too. But really he’s only ever thought of her as home.

My poor, sweet babies. It’s all downhill from here.

Luke is so happy Jess is back omg.

Like, he’s playing it cool and all, giving Jess advice about staying away from Rory and telling him things have to change.

But on the inside, he’s doing cartwheels and lighting sparklers. Hide all batons in town, because he might start twirling them later.

Ugh so here’s Part Whatever of the Chris/Lorelai Saga.

THEY ARE SO. SO. SO. SO. WRONG FOR EACH OTHER.

Review:

Chris: We’ve never been in the same place at the same time before

BUT YOU’RE NOT CHRISTOPHER JFC. You thinking about leaving Sherry does not mean YOU HAVE ACTUALLY LEFT SHERRY. 

Lorelai, how are you falling for this??!

Oh wait, it’s because YOU TWO ARE THE LITERAL WORST. YOU BRING OUT THE ABSOLUTELY WORST IN EACH OTHER. 

Do not go back upstairs to that bed of sin and lies, Lorelai. Go home.

Those two will never be adults as long as they hold on to each other. 

Ugh.

Time to talk about Sookie and Jackson!!!

I LOVE THEM SO MUUUUUCH.

First of all, Sookie St. James is a brilliant character, and Melissa McCarthy is such a damn chameleon and fits so seamlessly into the part. Sookie’s supposed to the kooky comic relief sidekick to Lorelai, but never once does Melissa McCarthy play her as if she’s not completely important in her own right. Her storylines are always some of my favorites because not only are they freaking hilarious, they’re also usually really interesting. Yes, Sookie’s a little nutty and a klutz, but she’s way talented, an amazing friend, smart, beautiful, down-to-earth, and takes shit from exactly zero people. She is a way nicer friend than Lorelai deserves sometimes, too. AND HER SIZE IS NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER AN ISSUE OR A PUNCHLINE OR AT ALL A PART OF HER CHARACTER BECAUSE IT DOESN’T FREAKING MATTER HALLELUJAH.

Her and Jackson also have the best relationship on the show, as far as I’m concerned. His proposal always makes me cry. They’re super in-sync and totally get each other’s weirdness. They appreciate each other for who they are. They’re low-key, low-drama, and seem super fun to be around. And they aren’t being sold as this adorkable, funny, sexless couple. But they’re also not always presented as a unit. Sookie’s life isn’t all about Jackson, and vice versa. They fight, they nitpick, they disagree, but they are still rock-solid. They have their own interests and likes and dislikes, but they support each other no matter what. And they aren’t being sold as this adorkable, funny, sexless couple. Despite neither of them being “conventionally attractive” or whatever, the writers never portray them as being anything but totally 100% hot for each other, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT REAL COUPLES LOOK LIKE PEOPLE. On any other show, some sort of punchline would be made about them at some point (or on the reg), but it is NEVER. EVER. A THING ON THIS SHOW. And I hate that I’m even mentioning this at all, but it’s so jarringly different from the way these kinds of characters are currently treated on television and movies, and that makes me very sad. But this show loves its characters and the writers are writing real people with real relationships and real flaws and real fights and it’s ALL SO GOOD.

Forget Rory/Jess, Rory/Dean, Rory/Logan, Lorelai/Chris, Lorelai/Luke, Richard/Emily, and god knows who else. Sookie/Jackson are the real star couple on this show. This show does such a great job with the relationships of its supporting cast (i.e. Lane/Zack, Kirk/Lulu, Babette/Morie), and it makes me so sad that they can’t write the same kinds of relationships for its main characters.

ALL ABOARD.

The Paris/Rory train is once again up and running, and it’s about to leave the station.

Geller and Gilmore: Never underestimate the power of alliteration. 

"You look like little birds help you get dressed in the morning." There’s no way Paris hasn’t thought about that in detail before.

After watching them be adorable all over New York…

I think I finally have a tag for Rory/Jess:

Smitten Kittens.

Seriously, these two dorks and their little smiles and teasing and wanting to hold hands but not. God GET A ROOM.

Emily and Richard at Lorelai’s graduation.

And Emily spending all that money with Raoul and the corsages even though it’s a shitty community college ceremony.

And Richard giving her the graduation cash.

And they are so freaking proud of Lorelai for accomplishing something, even if it’s just finishing a business class.

I’M NOT CRYING, YOU’RE CRYING.

THIS IS A POST FOR EVERYONE (for some ungodly reason) KEEPING UP WITH MY GILMORE GIRLS REWATCH POSTS.

So I’ve had a few minor complaints about my long posts and people asking if I could maybe post those as links to a long post instead. I am more than happy to do that, except I kind of can’t figure out how.

I know, I know. I’ve been on this site for like three years and I can’t figure that out. What a baby, I know. 

I’ve got a crazy long post on ‘Teach Me Tonight’ that I could like to have up by tonight, so if someone could talk me through the process of posting links to specific posts, that would be amazing.

Thx,
Mgmt.

Put it under a Read More. Do you know how to do that? After you click to make a text post, hover over the dotted line between the two solid lines. It shoud say ‘insert read more break’.

Oh dear. All of that was gibberish. 

Okay. Let’s break it down a little more. First, reblog this from me. If it tries to reblog as a link(a big green box at the top) look to the top right. To the right of the gear symbol will be an infinity symbol thingy with a drop down. Click on text. Then at the top, underneath the heading, you should see the bar that lets you format the post. It will start with B, then i, and on. Hover over each thing. You will come to one that says the bit about read more. When you start a text post of your own, that same bar should be there.

My hero.

Luke and Rory: Breaking hearts since whenever this episode aired.

Seriously, y’all. That closing scene of them in the diner is so so sad. 

Even after hearing Lorelai’s tirade against Jess, it’s sweet that Rory wanted to reassure Luke that he wasn’t the only one still in Jess’s corner. She knows he went away because he was upset, not just at Lorelai, but also over losing Jess, who made his lonely little world a little less lonely.

And, once again, Lorelai is overdramatic and unreasonable, but I can’t totally fault her for that either. I genuinely believe that if Jess had no romantic interest in Rory, Lorelai would be more inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt and go to bat for him. But all she sees when she looks at him is her daughter’s undoing, and that makes him Public Enemy #1.

And what makes this all even sadder is that because Lorelai can’t see past her beef with Jess, she and Luke’s friendship is taking a massive hit. He’s always in her corner, always there to forgive her or defend her or help her, and she should trust his judgement like he trusts hers. Yes, she’s upset about what happened to her daughter, but she’s being a supremely shitty friend to Luke, who could probably really use a friend about now. I really really hate how she refuses to see how important Jess is to Luke. But Lorelai (and the rest of Stars Hollow) will always be at least a little unreasonable where Rory is concerned. And if anything involves Jess, it will inevitably involve Rory. He started this whole arc with the deck stacked against him.

Rory and Luke are seriously the only people in that town who don’t see Jess as a villain. I’m not saying Jess is totally blameless for that because, in all fairness, he was basically a shithead to everyone except Rory and occasionally Luke, but still. That’s pretty bleak, to be your own quiet team of two. It just really sucks that they’re the only people who see him for who he is. I hope Jess knows how lucky he is to have those two people believe in him.

Oh Dean.

You beautiful naive newbown baby.

You live in a television series, do you really think Jess being gone will automatically fix your fading teenage love? 

More importantly, do you really think Jess will stay gone?

Even MORE importantly, I am really tired of everyone absolving St. Rory for being a teenager. She’s allowed to make stupid decisions, and we are all allowed to hold her responsible for them. The whole town is letting her off the hook, and that’s super not cool.
