Milo Ventimiglia Joins 'Gilmore Girls' Reunion At ATX Festival, But What Questions Do Fans Have For Jess?

It's a great day to be a Gilmore Girls fan. According to Entertainment Weekly, Milo Ventimiglia is joining the Gilmore Girls reunion panel at the ATX Festival and pretty much anyone who has ever dreamed of a Jess/Rory reunion will be pleased. I know I am — it's been entirely too long since I've seen Jess alongside his former Gilmore Girls co-stars, like his TV uncle Scott Patterson, his (totally meant-to-be TV mother-in-law) Lauren Graham, and, obviously, his onscreen love interest, Alexis Bledel. I can't wait to hear what Ventimiglia has to say about the Gilmore Girls fandom, and whether he thinks that Rory should have ditched Logan for Jess in Season 6 like pretty much everyone else on the planet.

Though Jess is arguably the most beloved Gilmore Girls character (after Rory and Lorelai, of course) his actual time on the series was cut way shorter than most fans (aka me) would have liked it to be. After spending Seasons 2 and 3 on the series, he comes back as a guest star for only a handful of episodes in the fourth and sixth season — then he's not seen at all in the show's final Season 7. That's a shame, because while I'm stoked that fans will get to ask Ventimiglia all their burning questions, the real person I have questions for is Jess himself. If I could talk to the real Jess Mariano, here's what I would ask:

When Did You First Fall In Love With Rory?

I need an exact moment, please.

Did You Ever Feel Bad About The Dean Thing?

(Because I'm not sure I feel that bad about the Dean thing.)

Why Were You Such A Jerk To Rory?

Those hang up calls were so not okay.

Are You Afraid Of Smiling?

Or is brooding just your favorite thing?

Why Didn't You Stay In Stars Hollow?

You could have been so happy with your bae!

Did This Kill You?

It definitely hurt me.

Do You Have Any Regrets?

If I were your lifestyle guru, I might have done a few things differently.
