Does Rory Gilmore Quit Her Job? She's Got "No Job, No Credit, No Underwear" In The 'Gilmore Girls' Revival Trailer
This Tuesday is a glorious day for multiple reasons. First, Netflix released the official Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life trailer — two minutes and 27 seconds of nostalgic and sarcastic magic, to be exact. Not only that, but it seems Rory, Lorelai, and the gang aren't exactly where I expected them to be. They all have plenty of figuring out to do, attempting to put together the pieces and clean up the messes that happened since fans saw them last. Gilmore Girls ended with an epic kiss between Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Luke (Scott Patterson), while Rory (Alexis Bledel) was embarking on the job opportunity of a lifetime as a reporter covering Barack Obama's campaign trail. It seemed like a fairy tale. But in the trailer, Rory is especially confused about her "vagabond" life. Fans may be wondering: Did Rory quit her job? Was she fired? Answers to those questions are TBD, but either way, I'm glad her ever-after isn't as happy as I predicted.
Rory's drive and hustle was always unmatched. With GG: A Year in the Life, I expected her to be thriving at work (74 résumés later) and in her personal life, too. Who knew she and Lorelai would be kicking back with booze, ordering Chinese, Greek, Italian food ... and hot dogs? Just another Saturday night, right?
But beyond drunken delivery orders, Rory has some soul-searching to do. (Partly in London, apparently.) And it will be refreshing to see her all out of sorts. With her Yale flag in the background, she says, "This is my time to be rootless." She isn't sure where she's headed, and I can completely relate. "I feel very lost these days. I have no job, I have no credit, I have no underwear," Rory says. Preach it, girl.
Luckily, it looks like Lorelai is there to support her. "She's Jack Kerouac, she's on the road again, past the peyote," she says. Meanwhile, Lorelai seems a bit lost herself. In the trailer, she explains that things seem hazy and that she are Luke are just "good." I'm not convinced, though. Fans also get a glimpse of Lorelai's mom Emily (Kelly Bishop), who is trying to pick herself up after her husband of 50 years passed away.
The Gilmore ladies truly seem lost, but I'm excited to see how they help each other out and use their individual bad-assery to prevail and move forward. Only one month to go, guys.
