Rory Should Come Clean To Logan On 'Gilmore Girls'

There are MAJOR SPOILERS ahead for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, so turn back if you don't want to get spoiled. The Gilmore Girls revival ended with creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's famous four words that she always intended to end the series — and boy were they a cliffhanger. Rory Gilmore (played by Alexis Bledel) is pregnant and the baby's father is most likely ex-boyfriend Logan Huntzberger (played by Matt Czuchry), even though it hasn't been confirmed. But Will Rory tell Logan she's pregnant after the Gilmore Girls revival? I think it's pretty likely, whether or not he is the father — and she really should if he indeed is the dad.

Since they met via the Life and Death Brigade during their Yale days, Rory and Logan have grown very close to each other — they were essentially college sweethearts, they contemplated marriage at the end of the original series (well, he did), and they secretly slept together throughout the Gilmore Girls revival. Sure, she was seeing the forgettable Paul and Logan was engaged to French heiress Odette, but Rory admitted to Lane in the episode "Summer" that she developed a habit of reaching out to Logan whenever she was upset. And there was a tinge of worry in Rory's voice as she told her mother about the pregnancy, so I don't think it would be far-fetched to believed that she once again reflex dialed Logan on her cell phone. He has always been someone she felt could turn to in her times of need.

If Logan is the father — making that phone call carry a bit more weight — I still think Rory would tell him about their baby, because if you recall, the end of the episode "Fall" sets up many parallels between Rory's romantic life and her mother Lorelai's romantic history. Rory visits her father Christopher to presumably interview him about his involvement in her life as research for her book, but after the final scene, the exchange with her dad seems more like research for her pregnancy. After all, Logan and Christopher are strikingly similar: they both work for their wealthy families and, at the time of pregnancy, were not able to fully commit.

So if Logan is Rory's Christopher, she would be Lorelai in this situation. In the original series' episode "Dear Emily and Richard," viewers see flashbacks to Lorelai's life at 16 when she was pregnant with Rory — and Lorelai did tell Christopher, as well as her parents and his parents. The Gilmores and the Haydens have a memorable tense meeting in the episode's flashback, but despite that, Lorelai would still most likely counsel her daughter to do the same, since she has been in this situation before. And if Rory will listen to anyone, it's her mom. Perhaps off-screen (or maybe on-screen) tense meeting between Luke, Lorelai and the Huntzbergers could occur in the future.

No matter what, I'd say it's very likely that Rory will let Logan know about her pregnancy — whether or not he's the father.
