With Thanksgiving just one day away, TV fans are amping up for the next Netflix event. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will be released on Black Friday, to the joy of fans who had been waiting close to a decade for a proper conclusion. Since the original series was abruptly cancelled by the CW in 2007, fans have been wondering what happened to the denizens of Stars Hollow, especially the titular characters themselves. In particular, who are the Gilmore Girls going to end up with? Luckily, we may have gotten a clue regarding Rory's love life.
In terms of where things are at the end of these four chapters for Logan and Rory, it's pretty special. I'll say that. It's very, very special.
Uh oh. All the #TeamJess people are going to freak out. Rory and Logan have some sort of special ending to their plot, but what exactly could it be? Let's break down some possibilities while we patiently wait for two days to pass.
To start, Logan is presumably going to have the most screen time out of all of Rory's boyfriends. Matt Czuchry's Logan has been confirmed for all four episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, which is in stark transition to Jess (3 episodes) and Dean (1 episode). We can assume that Logan will have the biggest role of the group, which makes sense considering he has a "very special" ending with Rory.
Logan's expanded role in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life may come as a surprise to hardcore Gilmore Girls fans. At the point the series was cancelled, Logan and Rory weren't exactly on good terms. Logan proposed to Rory and and delivered her an ultimatum: either marriage or nothing. Rory ultimately ended up turning Mr. Huntzberger down, and they departed without words- leaving him absent from the finale episode. For the years since, the fandom assumed that Jess was the only one of Rory's suitors who she was still on good terms with... until now.
Matt Czuchry's above statement is sure to give help to #TeamLogan members everywhere. While he may be the least popular of Rory's boyfriends, Logan was definitely around for a long time. He represented Rory's first adult relationship, and he was actually quite a good influence on her, mostly. Sure he and Mitchum contributed to Rory's arrest and temporary breakup with Lorelai, but he taught her adult values and drive in the real world, and Rory also came into her own as a sexually liberated adult. Do I want Rory to end up with Jess? Yes. Would a Logan relationship be the worst thing in the world? Absolutely not.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will be released in its entirety on November 25th.
