"Gilmore Girls" spoilers coming right up...
Well, gee, that only took Rosenthal and company 14 episodes to fix -- kind of.
I give the new team credit for not sweeping the idiotic Christopher one-night stand cliffhanger under the rug, and for trying to play it out as the characters might, but 14 episodes? Out of 22? In what may or may not be the show's final season? The writers had to spend that much time on Lorelai realizing once again that, when push comes to shove, Chris is a selfish loser? I'll grant you that we didn't spend every single one of the 14 on this arc, but it's pretty close. Some very fine acting by Lauren Graham at the end, but I could not be happier to see the back of this storyline.
In our other major relationship, things are going so well, everyone's behaving so maturely, that one of two things has to be going on. Either the writers are using Rory and Logan as a counterpoint to how messed up Lorelai and Chris have been, or they're setting them up for a major fall. At first, I assumed Hunky TA would cause some trouble, but Rory ratted herself out on that one almost instantly. After last week, a few of you guessed that Logan was about to go broke and that would put strain on the relationship if Rory was the rich one. I don't know, but I'm glad to see Logan no longer being an ass, even if I don't totally buy the transformation from Point A to Point Z.
It's late and I'm tired, so let me open the floor already. What did everybody else think?
