The Most Important Life Lessons The 'Gilmore Girls' Revival Teaches Us

I don't know about you, but I spent a little more than six-hours of my Thanksgiving break lounging around my apartment with my wife watching the return of Gilmore Girls.

Sherman-Palladino told the Hollywood Reporter that it was "interesting" to finally see the words come to life when they filmed the final scene of the Gilmore Girls revival. And if you have not watched the episodes, we advise you to read this article because obviously contains spoilers on episodes. "She's lonely. She hadn't been hugged or kissed for a long time but obviously that wasn't the person for her because when he said he had to leave and go back to the city, she was so relieved". Stars Hollow, that CT snowglobe-of-a-town, remains mostly untouched by time, allowing us to seamlessly pick up our sense of place. In two short scenes, Rory and Lorelai went from my favorite mother-daughter duo to my worst nightmare at the pool. At the end of this finale, we watch Rory as she leaves to take on her first reporting job, after years of hard work and dedication to her future as a journalist.

With Rory about to embark on the next chapter of her life, the door would seem to be open for additional "Gilmore Girls" episodes.

For the history of "Gilmore Girls", Rory has been the Golden Child, the one whom everyone celebrated and sacrificed for.

But I digress. Rory is the kind of entitled "journalist" who walks into an interview unprepared, who sleeps with one of her subjects, who falls asleep mid-interview! But did they share chemistry? What happened?Murray played Tristan in 11 episodes of the original series, from 2000-2001, but apparently he didn't have time for the 2016 revival. He is, in many ways, a younger version of Rory's father, Christopher Hayden - wealthy, privileged, devilishly charming.

Fidel Castro, former leader of Cuba, dead at age 90
Castro's death was reported by Cuban state television, according to NBC's Jesse Rodriguez. Castro had been in poor health since an intestinal ailment almost killed him in 2006.

In portraying Emily's grief, Bishop tapped into personal experience-inspired by both widows she knows, and by the loss of Herrmann, whom she called her "real-life set buddy". Whether we see another season or not, A Year In The Life was everything that fans of the original series could've wanted. I reached for my daughter's hand and told her someday she'd understand why I was crying.

Of course, there are some less amusing moments along the way-for instance, some very raw fights with Lorelai, whose own struggle to cope with Richard's death prevents her from being totally supportive. Or if not specifically daddy issues, then the feeling of being abandoned by a parent and the constant search for someone to fill that void.

So all you Team Jess fans out there: Don't lose hope because Rory and Jess are totally meant to be. "Or, at that time, was not the great dependable soul".

Anyway, this field-playing Rory is far from the serial-dater we once knew and loved.

No matter how you feel about the last season, the very last episode must stir in your soul all the things that hooked you to Gilmore Girls in the first place. That said, Rory was with Logan at that point, and only broke up with him at the end of the season, so it's a fair assumption that Logan would also have been the father back then. No matter the title or pay, or even location, nothing will make you happier than doing exactly what you love.
