Um, it's hard to believe we're nowhere near Christmas, because if you're a Gilmore Girls fan, all your hopes, dreams, and wishes just came true in one fell swoop. The new Gilmore Girls Netflix revival teaser just dropped, and it's all sorts of intriguing. For a start, it's just a damn good trailer. We open on a shot of the Stars Hollow church and a perfect blue sky, which gives the viewer that peculiar sensation of being homesick for a place you've never been. Then it launches into the one reason we all tune into the show: the crackerjack back-and-forth between dynamic duo Lorelai and Rory.
Clearly, not much has changed. They riff a little on Amy Schumer and John Oliver while sitting at the kitchen table — basically, the place they always are when they have their best exchanges.
But wait, there's one key detail that shows really, truly nothing has changed, despite it being all these years later. It's tiny, and perhaps not even a real spoiler, but... watch Lorelai's hand. Have you seen it yet? And when I say "it," I mean, of course, the sheer lack of "it." Where's that damn engagement ring? Are you seriously telling me Lorelai is not actually engaged to Luke yet?
I guess despite all the clues that Lorelai and Luke are engaged, neither has popped the question yet (given Lorelai's history with Luke, we probably shouldn't assume it'll necessarily be Luke doing the proposing) — not yet, anyway.
But! What the trailer does give us instead is a truly relatable take on Amy Schumer. Like every other woman in 2016, Lorelai is preoccupied by one pressing question: "Do you think Amy Schumer would like me?" #Same.
Rory argues that it's unlikely. Why? "Water sports... every single time I see her on holiday in a magazine, she's doing water sports."
"Ooh, no, that would not work at all," Lorelai says, shaking her head in disgust. Phew. She follows up with a potentially less relatable inquiry: "Do you think John Oliver would find me hot?"
That's it, folks. We've cracked the great non-appearance of the Luke/Lorelai engagement ring mystery. Lorelai's forsaken Luke to go pursue her dream of dating a quick-witted British television host. That's got to be it, right?
