A Year in the Life
Episode Two: “Spring”
Original Airdate: November 25, 2016
As Rory’s secret London love affair continues, working on her book proposal becomes increasingly difficult. Lorelai and Emily go to therapy together.
I do love they gave Kirk a pig. Petals is adorable and the perfect pet for Kirk and LuLu.
As for Rory. Once again, she’s passing up on a job for a paper she deems unworthy to go after bigger things she’s not qualified for. Like saying no to Sandee Says for Condé Nast and this book with Namoi that goes NOWHERE because Namoi is a psycho! Although I will say the woman did bring some color to the scenes, didn’t she?
I’m not going to touch on her affair with Logan because that I am actually happy about. Although, I just wish he wasn’t engaged to another woman. Ugh. And what would Gilmore Girls be without Mitchum Huntzberger. That actor did a great job and being a total and utter sleezeball, didn’t he?
And we finally see Mr. Kim!! I still never knew why we didn’t see him in the TV show. But I suppose that doesn’t really matter. I loved seeing another town meeting about the B-List stars staying at the Dragonfly. Although, I miss seeing Miss Patty sitting next to Taylor. I wonder why she wasn’t. This is the episode about the secret bar which I don’t understand. What happened to Casey’s—or I guess it was K.C.’s. I’m not sure.
I do think it’s time for Lorelai to update her inn. Not a lot, but the times they are a-changin’.
I did think it was cool that we were able to go back to Chilton, and I think Rory would have made a wonderful teacher. She should have looked into that. Paris on the other hand . . . heck to the no. I will say sometimes there are parts where I think Paris is overacting a bit. She was harsh, but not as much as she is now.
It was nice to see Francie. And I love her joke. “I’m sorry, but did I just step back into 2003?”
It’s also really odd to me that Rory wants this meeting with Condé Nast and then she finally gets an article with them to show them what she can do and she blows it by sleeping with a wookie? She’s just so floppy-floppy. Like she is collection one moment then all over the place the next. Did she even write the story about the lines? Did GQ publish it? Did she not write it?
So what did you all think of this episode?
