As Emily pours Rory a drink, we can't help but remember the days of Richard pouring the drinks at Friday Night Dinner. Is Rory at the Gilmore home for another dinner, or is this a visit about something else entirely?
Love will keep them together. After a painful breakup, and the ludi'chris' story that followed, it's great to see Luke and Lorelai looking happy eight years later. What is their relationship status? Engaged? Married? "We Don't Need to Label It?"
Rory stands in front of a class at Chilton, leading us to wonder the obvious: has she given up a life of journalism for a life of teaching? Or is this a special speaking engagement for an "ace" reporter?
Emily sits in her home, now a widow after Richard's passing. What will a life without Richard look like for Emily? Will she have learned to be a kayak, as she once described Lorelai, or will she rely on others to get by without her beloved husband?
Who's that g- wait...wrong show. But there he is, Jess Mariano, in the flesh and back in the Hollow to presumably stir up some trouble. We're hoping he's more mature now, and still as dreamy as he was back in Philly, but we have a feeling it'll be a lot more of the former than the latter.
Dean: You said 'boyfriend'. Rory: No! I just meant boyfriend in the sense that the whole defending me thing was very boyfriendy, but only in the broadest sense of the word, which doesn't even apply at all here.
