Episode One Hundred Thirty-One: “Partings”
Original Airdate: May 9, 2006
Goodbye. The town troubadour departs Stars Hollow for his Neil Young gig (creating a stampede of would-be troubadours to town). Logan graduates and leaves for London. And the Luke-Lorelai love affair my be can, adios, game over.
Logan is graduating and moving to London. *Ugly Cry*
And I hated their goodbye. Not because it was bad. It wasn’t. It was because it was sad. And I will never understand why she threw Logan a big party and didn’t spend the time alone with him. I’d rather have spent time alone than a big party.
Of course, not as sad as Lorelai’s ultimatum speech and how Luke said no. *Ugly cry again* I’ve always said it and I’ll say it again. Whenever the writers bring Christopher back in its for trouble. Period. And boy did he stir up some in this season ending show-stopper.
Now, I do have to point out that it’s not that I don’t like Christopher. I actually do. I’ve always liked his character and the friendship that he and Lorelai have is wonderful. Their banter is always fun, too.
This season finale was a good one. So many moments that leave you wanting the next season to start the next night. Good thing Netflix automatically plays it. Har Har.
Anyhoo. What did y’all think about the ending to season six?
RORY: [Looking at the camera] Oh-ho. I have outdone myself photographically. Every one of these is a keeper.
LOGAN: Okay that’s a close-up of my naked butt. That’s not a keeper.
RORY: You’re right. That’s a screen saver.
CHRISTOPHER: Nothing! You’re just sitting there, not saying anything.
LORELAI: What are you talking about? When mom said, “doesn’t he look like Cary Grant?” I said, “yes.”
CHRISTOPHER: You’re just letting this happen.
LORELAI: I’m not just letting this happen.
CHRISTOPHER: You can’t see that I’m miserable out there?
LORELAI: No, I can’t. You seem fine. You’re talking to her.
CHRISTOPHER: She’s talking to me what am I supposed to do, slap her in the mouth?
LORELAI: That would be a conversation stopper.
