  8. rory has no conscience about her affair?? only some weird hostility about his actual girlfriend??
  9. like five total minutes of jess? no weird tension between him and rory? and then all of the sudden one look at the end is supposed to open the door for romance again?

    Suggested by   @k8mcgarry
  12. Rory is a monster?? Liiiike Idk I'm halfway through ep 3
    Suggested by   @ShawnKelly
  13. Where did Rory find the money to take last minute transatlantic flights all year long when she keeps taking writing jobs for no pay?
    Suggested by   @k8mcgarry
  14. Was Emily's head always too big for her body
    Suggested by   @k8mcgarry
  15. WHAT WAS ALL THAT POOLSIDE BODY SHAMING??? It actually made me so so uncomfortable? DO NOT DO THAT???
    Suggested by   @mirthnuts
  16. Michel and Frederick are the only ones I'm rooting for in this gd show
    Suggested by   @mirthnuts
  17. also, the first three eps were snoozers! why is everything packed in the last ep??
  18. the musical storyline was created just for a sutton foster appearance, right? so boring and served no purpose.
  19. I've always felt Logan was kind of a heartless jerk and now it seems that he has rubbed off on Rory in a huge way. Also Lorelei's face is distracting.
    Suggested by   @natalieruth
  20. Can someone please fill me in or at least acknowledge with me that Melissa McCarthy's voice has changed an absurd amount in the last 3 years
    Suggested by   @mirthnuts
  21. Rory sucks so much I know everyone else already said this but it bears repeating
    Suggested by   @mirthnuts
  22. What happened to Lorelei's face and why does the acting feel so stiff??? They turned into coffee robots
    Suggested by   @sidneylists
  23. I just want to make sure we all saw the two slave boys in the summer episode carrying around Rory and Lorelai's things? I didn't understand that part.
    Suggested by   @ShawnKelly
  24. How did Taylor seriously not know about the secret bar if everyone yells five-o and Lorelei heard it inside of the gazette's building when she was talking to Rory? Wtf
    Suggested by   @michellejennifer
  25. Annoyed with Rory... especially when it comes to having an affair.
    Why use a longing glance for jess at the end?! Was life and death brigade even necessary? Like break up with Paul already? How did she afford to fly to London but not buy underwear? Also why even bring sookie back if Michel was going to be by Lorelei's side at the wedding? Ugh I have so many more issues with this
    Suggested by   @michellejennifer
  26. also why did she suddenly stop freelancing after her big new yorker piece? and why is her leaving her apt a huge deal? she did it by choice?
  27. Also of course it was Jess that got Rory out of a rut again and to light the fire of writing a book.
    Team Jess 4 Eva. He was the only one who could convince her to go back to Yale. Sorry for the spam... none of my friends have finished it yet and I have a lot I need to talk about haha
    Suggested by   @michellejennifer
  28. also, the last four words were a letdown! getting pregs at 32 isn't shocking, regardless of marital status. your mom had a sixteen year old at that age!
  29. What exactly was the purpose of Paul???
    Like if he's so forgettable, what's even the point of introducing him as a character? Unless it's just to give further evidence to Rory's missing moral compass...
    Suggested by   @federmonster
  30. Are the last four words a set up for a new show where Rory is the mom???
    Donttttttttttttt
    Suggested by   @billnye
  31. What's with gypsy as the maid????
    And Emily's ending was the best! I a weird way she got want she wanted from lorelai and Rory... I have soooo many thoughts about the revival but I'm happy with it (not happy with Logan but still)
    Suggested by   @criscd
  32. I can't believe Emily actually kept a maid the entire 4 seasons! Richard was dead serious when he wanted Luke to expand the dinner...Why throw in the random one night stand? Was it so we question if it's Logan's baby??? Why open another inn? Just to keep Michelle, who btw should never be a parent.
    Suggested by   @elmospimpingme
  33. I too am disappointed with the storyline given to Rory! What the hell? And "Jess's Cross Fit addiction" 😂
    Suggested by   @kate81
  34. Also, Paris and Emily were everything
    Plus, Jess' body gave me strength. Bless him.
    Suggested by   @SarahMoore
  35. I loved most of it until the end. Why did she make a 32 year old woman have the same issues and thoughts and track in life as a 16 year old?
    There really is no need to make Rory exactly like her mother, especially since she hasn't been since she started at Yale. Amy made a point to make them different because they are two different people so why retract and make them the same?
    Suggested by   @SarahMoore
  36. Feels pretty clear that Rory is supposed to be repeating her mother's mistakes in every way
    Dean=Max (a finally over and dismissed first love who was good as a first love but not ultimately who they belonged with), Logan=Christopher (especially now, aside from the pregnancy, look at how they both try to throw money at those they love instead of time and commitment— Amy's said that Logan was Rory dating her father), Jess=Luke (clearly still pining, but friendly and always there, giving advice and caring). Also I too had issues with the body shaming and the musical. And Emily is a queen.
    Suggested by   @sarahbelle6
  37. They were too obvious about the coming full circle thing, like Rory (Lorelai) has a baby with an absent (?) Logan (Christopher) while, hypothetically, Jess (Luke) pines after her for years??? I mean Jess deserves better. But for real, for me, the final four words were fine, just not the implication of Logan's involvement.
    Also fuck the body shaming that made me so mad and disappointed cause they've done it before in the show, but never on such a dehumanising scale. Like headless fat bodies? Fuck you. But other than those, I was pretty satisfied with the series.
    Suggested by   @alanarogerrrrs
  38. I was v disappointed with Rory. Like I get that Paul was supposed to be funny but by the end of episode 3 I was so over it. And the entire Rory/ Logan storyline just made me so mad. I didn't mind the casual thing, like whatever they're grown ass adults, but doing it knowing full well he's engaged AND not planning on breaking it off??? BLEH.
    Also Lorelai and Luke storyline felt like it moved slow but I was satisfied with it in the end. And I also can't believe we wasted so much time on that play. And v disappointed with the lack of Jess. I've got a lot of feelings, a whole lot of feelings.

  39. Sorry to be list posting but I wrote all my thoughts down and here they are and I am not a happy camper right now.
    Suggested by   @quixotic
  40. Is the actor that played Zach ok??? Do we need to check on him?
    He looked so frail
    Suggested by   @stephani
  41. Needed considerably more:
    JESS, Sookie (at least throw in a scene of her standing there at the wedding, obviously they would invite her if she's back), Paris (there was actually a decent amount of Paris, I just always need more), Madelyn & Louise
    Suggested by   @stephani
  42. Needed considerably less:
    Logan, Rory having no conscience and Lorelai not calling her on it, musical numbers (I'm not totally against them as a concept but this is time that needed to go to Jess)
    Suggested by   @stephani
  43. Exactly the right amount of:
    Dean, tributes to Grandpa 😭, Emily finding herself and peace, Luke being amazing, finally getting indisputable confirmation of Michel's orientation, mother/daughter moments, continued character growth for Lorelai, nostalgic callbacks, pumpkins
    Suggested by   @stephani
  44. Why the hell is Lorelai still pissed as fuck about Jess when he is simply mentioned, but has no visible issues with Logan and the fact that Rory is cheating on Paul and that Logan is cheating on his fiancee? Like I get that Lore doesn't like Jess, but come on... he's CLEARLY not as bad as Logan.
    Suggested by   @natalieruth
  45. All the "30-somethings club" humor seemed wildly out of place. Also Rory you're not better than them???
    Suggested by   @jellybean
  46. Agree on musical (I know Stars Hollow is gonna Stars Hollow but it was so longgggg and useless) and the body shaming and Emily being a queen!
    I was kinda up and down on Rory. I love that her life was a mess, because perfectionist kids can't stay perfect forever and it's hard and scary when you're not and sometimes you act out in ways you wouldn't expect (not talking from experience or anything, ha). But, like, still. Don't become an awful person. The ending was just unexpected but yet not? I don't know. Still processing.
    Suggested by   @MissJess
  47. The Gilmore Girls are the worst possible friends to have
    Were they always this unbearable?! Why did Lane and Sookie get such non-stories? Sookie asked, "still best friends?" and I almost choked laughing because Lorelai doesn't even know the names of Sookie's kid. And just want to echo all the above on the musical, body shaming, and the grossness of the Rory-Logan affair. And wtf-why did Christopher get such a crap story? I'm so upset!
    Suggested by   @bware427
  48. Mr. Kim finally made an appearance!!
    Suggested by   @wallflower
  49. Emily and Paris were the highlights for me TBH. Like truly complex and interesting. Rory SUX as a freelance writer and like where are her problems with sleeping with Logan when he has a fiancé???? Girl get it together.
    Also ALL That body shaming in the summer episode like EXCUSE ME??? @mirthnuts praise you for mentioning 🙏
    Suggested by   @aliciamcelhaney
  50. The musical demanded 15 minutes of my time but Jess got MAYBE 5??? And they were all with Luke????
    Suggested by   @SpaceCase
  51. Also, yeah, as mentioned before, Sookie's voice is SO different but Rory's is as well. It was distracting.
    Suggested by   @SpaceCase
  52. How has no one mentioned the insanity of the tango scene?
    Literally, no list or article I've read has even brought it up. Although I'm realizing now that it probably is best if we ignore it entirely (🚫💃🏽🚫)
    Suggested by   @dreadpiratemama
  53. Rory's biggest problem is her sense of entitlement despite the fact that she's a terrible journalist
    Sleeping with the Wookie (who was a source!)? Blowing off any prep for a job interview? Ignoring the importance of digital media? Honestly, girl's gonna have to set aside her dreams and get a paying job to support that kid
    Suggested by   @dreadpiratemama
  54. Why does Luke have Wifi, or internet at all?
    Suggested by   @Jodiehoklas
  55. Also the Life and Death Brigade-Tango scene is a rip off of Across the Universe.
    Suggested by   @jessilee23
  56. Am I the only one that found the scene with Kirk and the pig and Luke mentioning the BLT just in-fucking-sufferable??
