that's the end?

If you haven't yet watched last night's season finale of Gilmore Girls, be warned as I divulge certain plot points that well, you are probably already aware of or guessed but just in case you haven't I'm just saying don't blame me if you wind up finding out certain things from reading this.

That off my chest, holy moly! I'm not sure what to think about this episode. Like, ok, The WB teases us for a whole week showing the faces of Luke, Lorelei, Logan and Foetus Face while pronouncing, "Someone will ask...WILL YOU MARY ME?" So we know it's coming, only there's just two minutes left to the episode and nothing has happened. I am freaking out thinking the DVR will cut off the show before the actual ending and instead of getting to the good stuff, there's an extension to the weird plot point about the bikers in the race, about them finishing hours after their expected times. Is Luke and his bat to blame for this? Why are they hours and hours behind schedule? Seriously, what are we suposed to think since the last scene we saw wtih the bikers, they were spilling all over the place as a result of doding a very angry Luke as he crossed the street to tell Taylor he no longer wanted the Twickum House.

Jump forward to minute 58. Kirk is wearing a safety suit and Taylor a really ugly screen printed shirt he made especially for the bike race and what I really want to know is if the design on the shirt is purposely to the side instead of being centered. It really bothered me. So ok, there's just 120 seconds left, how the fuck is Amy Sherman-Palladino going to tie a ribbon on this? But then she does, and it parallels a scene from seaons ago when Lorelei is talking a mile a minute and Luke deadpans 'will you marry me?' with his reasoning being it was the first thing he thougght of that might shut her up. Now it's Luke going off and Lorelei looks at him and pops the question and are we supposed to be worried about these parralels? Will they start season six with a 'haha, JUST KIDDING!' Cause if they do, I will be really really really so pissed. If Luke says yes, will he get a haircut for the wedding because it has just been so unruly these past months.

Now onto THE BAND. While I thought it was completely out of character for Lane to want move back home (btw, what happened to cousin Kyong?), I loved the transformation off MamaKim into Colonel Tom Parker. And good for her for backing up her daughter like that. Kims don't give up! Kims don't give up! I also for the life of me cannot remember the name of THE BAND. I'm pretty sure if was decided because they had a flyer for their CBs show which was printed over a Sub Shop flyer, but it's funny that THE BAND is referred to as such and never its proper name. I wish The WB would have a summer mini-series called THE BAND and it would be 8 episodes about THE BAND on their first tour and all the hijinks that ensue. Are you listening, THE WB?

Now let's talk about the travesty that is Rory. What the fuck, girl? Lorelei has done everything in her life for you and you just spit it in her face. You are unfit to be her daughter. Yeah, that's right, you go and hide in the pool house and live your life like the entitled Foetus-Face that you are. You go to your yacht club parties and D.A.R. meetings and stay there. You keep curling that hair of yours and wearing those god-awful half-sweaters. I can't believe you're letting Oompah Loompah face Mitchum Huntzburger dictate the rest of your life. And what on Earth is Logan seeing in you? I've actually warmed up to this fellow and Rory does not deserve him. You selfish dumbass!

Am I missing anything.? I'm sure I am. Oh, how weird was is when those two bikers were feeling each others glutes? And when, oh when, will the Michel is Straight charade end?

I have to side with you about Rory in this recent development. What a bitch. They have set up this class war between rory/Loreli all season so its not that suprising but Loreli should just let go and do her own life for awhile. I dont begrudge Rory the time off, pretty normal for 20, but her mental frailness in the face of everything Huntzberger is disgusting!!!!!!!

I dont think Loreli was kidding at all, and I thought that was handled well. She is too wrecked to kid and the fact that he was on her side was huge. Now will we see it happen???? I HOPE they get married "off camera" and the season starts next year and they got married in a day by themselves, starting next season as a TEAM against the evil gilmore-huntzberger yalies.

Gotta say HATE The Band story line. Christian rock is lame in all forms from stryper to pedro the lion.

Hard already missing gilmores Larry

I haven't been watching Gilmore in a while, so I have no idea who Huntzberger is (is it that bland Skull-and-Bones kid's dad?). Rory should have hooked up with "the naked guy" instead of turning into the Princess Diaries. I've always thought that Michel's over-the-top accent and attitude make him one of the 4 least likable characters on TV, ever. You heterosexuals can keep him. (And Taylor too, referencing earlier Youthlarge plea for him to be outed). Just because someone is a flamingly melodramatic prissface doesn't mean they have to be a homo. We've got enough of those already. What TV really needs is for one of the hunky CSI characters to be identified as gay.

Our TiVo totally screwed us, and so maura & i didn't get to hear the big question - which was pretty seriously upsetting. we're scouring bittorrent for a copy of the ep.

as much of a self-centered bitch as rory has become, i think her character's development has been totally on-the-mark. thing have gone her way for the majority of her life up to this point, and she's gotten used to being a big, sparkly fish in a tiny pond. i think her reactions to adversity are *completely* in character for a person who's had the life experience she has up to this point. i admire the show for being brave enough to stick with that and not trying to make her more likeable or persistent. she's the classic queen bee shriveling in the face of adversity.

also, can someone finally get lauren graham an emmy, please? the look on her face when she realized her parents were not going to back her up was some of the best wordless acting i've ever seen. she's been phenomenal this season.

and i liked all the Mrs. Kim stuff, too!
