Who Is Rory Most Likely To End Up With On Gilmore Girls?

Netflix is usually pretty tight-lipped about its original programs, but there has been a lot of talk in particular about one of the shows that is coming up: Gilmore Girls. We've heard a lot about the past characters that will be showing up in the new episodes, including each or Rory's former boyfriends on the series. But who will Rory end up with? Luckily, there are some clues out there to help us get to an answer.

First and foremost, Dean is probably not it. Alexis Bledel revealed in a recent interview that she only filmed one scene with Jared Padalecki for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. It would be really hard to spark up a relationship, figure out all of your problems from the past and end up happily ever after all in one scene, so I think it's safe to say that Dean is going to be out of the running, here.

Gilmore Girls is being far less transparent with Logan and Jess. According to his IMBD profiles, Milo Ventimiglia---who plays Jess---is expected to appear in three of the four 90-minute episodes. If his profile is correct, Matt Czuchry's Logan will actually appear in all four episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life, which should theoretically give him the most time to impress Rory. In a recent interview, however, Matt Czuchry inadvertently revealed that while he knows how the show is ending, he's not actually in the final scene. Here's what he said, per Haute Living.

I am not going to talk about the details of the ending right now. That is for Amy and Dan to talk about because it is their ending, not mine. I am very protective of Amy and Dan since they trusted me by sharing the last scene and last four words with me before the release of the series. I know fans are really excited about the ending. As they should be, and they will certainly have a LOT of passionate discussions about the ending. I guarantee that.

So, Matt Czuchry knows what the final scene is, but he doesn't look to be in that final scene, since the creators had to share the ending with him. This doesn't necessarily preclude his character from ending up with a Gilmore. I personally always guessed that the last four words on Gilmore Girls, the words show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has been thinking about for a decade, had to be words between Lorelei Gilmore and Rory Gilmore. The show has first and foremost been a series about a mother-daughter relationship, and to me, that ending would make the most sense, and wouldn't preclude Luke and Lorelei figuring their stuff out or Rory finding someone to spend her future with.

The latter especially fits, considering that Amy Sherman-Palladino has been touting the idea that Rory's story has always been more about her career than her boyfriends. While I'd argue both have been equally important to the storyline, she's the writer, and if she wants Rory's love life to take the backseat or to even take a new turn with a new boyfriend, that's going to be what happens.

If you are hoping for an answer to those four little words ahead of the premiere, don't bet on it. Amy Sherman-Palladino revealed to TV Line that they may have filmed some decoy final scenes, much like The Walking Dead and other shows.

We shifted it around a lot, did a couple of rewrites. It was a little silly. It was a little cloak and dagger.

If we're looking just at episode count, Logan's currently ahead on who Rory will end up with, but with all of the information out there, there's no ruling out Jess, another man or no man at this point, although I think it's safe to say #TeamDean is out. Luckily, we'll find out soon. New episodes of Gilmore Girls hit Netflix on November 25. To find out what else is coming to Netflix, check out our 2017 schedule.
