is it WAY wrong that i giggled hysterically at Finn and whatshisname's reaction to discovering that Lorelai was Rory's mom? and i love how..stunned and shocked and still Rory looked. and then Lorelai falls apart at Lukes, talking about how Rory once grounded herself over a late library book, and then Lorelai gets outside..and while i loved how Rory finally hit the OMGIGOTARRESTED, Lorelai just..dropped it.
I know they have a weird relationship, but i wouldve liked more tension earlier in the ep. to go from, "my perfect daughter" to "let me tease you about JAIL," i would have liked to see Rory WALLOW in the guilt. i would have liked to see Lorelai be..a little mean about the teasing. or just, go silent.
it was just a weird feeling there. thats all.
ok, lets see, the bike race was boring. although the "big bat!" was pretty funny. but do we really want Luke threatening people with bats? that..doesnt scream funny to me. did DP write this ep?
the thing with Kirk trying to tow the jeep while Lorelai and Rory were having a deep conversation was really obnoxious. and thank you Lorelai, for saying what every single GG fan bitched about last week. Rory just..gave in! ONE PERSON thinks she isnt little perfect princess, and she gives up. then no, Mitch Rich is damn right, she doesnt have it. not if she can be scared off like that.
Ok, jumping around mentally, i make no promises to go in any sort of order from here on out, so before i get to the BIG freakout of the evening, i need to say a few things.
First? MAMA KIM ROCKS MY WORLD. dude, how awesome was she when she just..jumped all over Lane for giving up, and THEN organized the entire tour! I love you Mama Kim!
Second? Lorelai, TALK TO YOUR MAN PLEASE. does he not have a say in your decisions? is he THAT unimportant to you? i know that you are self obsessed to the extreme, and that is part of the reason i like you, but GEEZE. *smacks Lorelai around* Luke's rant here was painful to watch..the instant he said "kids," i covered my face and didnt look up until the commercial. Plus? I know she and Sookie have kinda joked around about it, but this was their DREAM. they planned this for years. and now? Lorelai is just thinking she'll sell, turn away from her daughter and her best friend and her Luke?
I actually..really liked Logan. it was an odd feeling. the bastage is growing on me. *sigh* i still want to see Rory's heart smashed into a thousand pieces. not because i dont like Rory, but because i dont think Logan can handle being "together."
The drop out of yale thing wasnt a surprise, but Lorelai going to her parents for help, and then Rory going to her grandfather, i didnt see that coming. and while i totally and completely understand them wanting to help Rory, and dude, how uncomfortable was Richard when Rory fell apart? to that end, i DO understand him sitting down with Rory and coming up with a plan, but i didnt like how he and Emily presented it to lorelai. it was in character, but i didnt like it. im weird like that.
and Lorelai's expression when she just..stood there watching Rory unpack. ouch. and i think she deliberately stood there waiting for Rory to see her.
and then the whole diner situation, which is the big OMGIHATECREDITS for me this week. ok. first. Lorelai telling Luke everything was lovely. and then, his rant. when he starts talking, she is just looking. but then, as he keeps going, you can SEE her realize what he said earlier. "kids." maybe not new ones, but Rory. He treats Rory like his own kid. and he is willing to do whatever is needed to take of her. and so, her realization of that..its beautiful.
i do need to point out that it was a turning point. Lorelai knows that Luke loves her. She knows that he would probably do anything for HER. For Lorelai.
but, the most important thing in Lorelai's life is Rory. always.
So, when Lorelai finally realizes that not only does he love Lorelai, he loves Rory. like a daughter. and he is willing to put her first.
I think that is what finally makes the light turn on. THATS when she gets it. when she sees his face, if you want.
Its not that Luke would do anything for Lorelai. Its that he would do it for RORY. Thats her turning point.
And i would have been happy with just an "I love you" there, but instead, Lorelai gets massive love surge, and proposes. And Luke is all, "HUH?!" and then CREDITS and i HATE YOU RIGHT NOW ASP.
now. where is my fic? where is the brand new fic telling me what happens right after? WHERE? GIMME!
