Lorelai Gets Closure In The 'Gilmore Girls' Revival, So Let's Be Happy For Her No Matter What
In the Gilmore Girls revival — Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life — there are many things to look forward to. Seeing Stars Hollow for the first time in nine years. The final four words. The chuppah. Hep Alien. The list could go on and on and on, but, in an interview with TVLine, Graham shared one particular thing that should make all fans of the show particularly excited: The idea of Lorelai getting closure. According to an interview with TVLine, Graham said that the revival was "complete and utter — for me as an actor and a character — closure." All the time we've spent scratching our heads and worrying about Lorelai and Luke, Lorelai and Rory, Lorelai and Emily, and Lorelai after the death of her father might have been in vain, since, in the end, we don't need to worry. Lorelai will get exactly what she needs in the Gilmore Girls revival.
So whatever happens with Lorelai and all of the above mentioned things, we should be happy with where things end, because it sounds like Lorelai will be happy with where things end. That's what matters for any character we've grown to know and love and continuously root for, right? Right. Glad we had this talk.
Speaking of Luke, in the latest Gilmore Girls revival trailer, Lorelai discusses her relationship with the surly diner owner during a therapy session. She states (not convincingly) "We're happy. Luke and I are... happy." In the trailer, Lorelai also admits "I thought I knew exactly what I wanted and where I was going but, lately, I don't know. Things seem hazier."
Presumably, this is where we'll find Lorelai in the beginning of the revival — reeling from the loss of her father, at a romantic stand-still with Luke, and a little lost. But, after one full year, it sounds like things will turn around. Or, at least, they will become less hazy.
Especially since a revival to the revival does not seem likely. Even though Amy Sherman-Palladino (creator of the show) is always carrying "note cards" with ideas, from everything we've heard about how A Year In The Life wraps up, these final four words will actual be the final four words of the show. As long as Lorelai — and Rory and Emily, because they are Gilmore Girls too — are content by the end, the revival will have been a success. You know what they say, all's well that ends, oy, with the poodles already. Or something like that.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in The Life premieres on Netflix, November 25.
