Farewell, "Gilmore Girls"

Farewell, "Gilmore Girls"

Ah, "Gilmore Girls." You have served us well! The series finale this week included all our favorite things: crazy townspeople antics, Rory-Loralei speed-talking conversations and some Loralei-Luke excitement. It's sort of like they've been honing their hearstring-pulling ways for seven years, just to make this final episode. When Rory says to Loralei "Mom, you've given me everything I need," was there a dry eye in the house? I think not. To relive some of last night's bittersweet moments,

Some of my favorite parts:

  • Kirk, placing Rory's sash on her, saying, "I made it out of my mom's old nightgowns."
  • Normally, I would have said the whole Loralei-Luke kiss thing felt really rushed, but those "Gilmore Girls" writers are forgiven in the spirit of series finales.
  • Loralei, intending to say she should have gotten Rory a traveling coffee mug, exclaims, "I should have gotten you a sippy cup!"
  • I love Loralei's reasoning for why Rory should sit in the back of the bus, where "people just tend to be more chatty."
  • I take comfort in the fact that Loralei will continue going to her parents for the Friday night dinners. It makes me feel like this isn't the end; we may not see it, but life in Stars Hollow will continue as usual.

What did you think of the series finale of "Gilmore Girls"?

I completely agree with katygirlthing. I even read somewhere that Amy said that the way it ended was not how she would have done it.

they made so many mistakes with gilmore girls when amy left. it was her show, her wit, and then it got all soapy.

Okay, I know this is an old post... and I'm not sure if anyone will even read this :)... but just wanted to say that I'd love to rent the seasons, because I only saw GG at random times on TV - but didn't actually follow the show. I always loved the way they interacted with one another :) Talking so fast and such!!

i didnt like the ending. it seemed to plain. i wasnt looking for weddings or rory to be with logan and loralei to end up with anyone other then luke. its just didnt seem complete. missing something. it was a good way to end the show just wasnt the bang i was expecting with the show. i heard there is a movie coming out of though that will tie up all the loose ends.

i agree with people who said they liked it because the writers didnt throw in anything weird or stupid like dual just seems right..of course i wish amy sherman palladino had stuck around and it could continue!!!!

since they shot it before they knew the show was over it was good for what it was. i wish i could have seen if rorys career was great for her. the end of rory and logan was a bit too empty-ended for me... if that makes sense. it was just too easy for him to say goodbye. i did love how the show ended with them in the same place as they were in the pilot episode. talking at a table for two with luke in the background. wonderful! i'll miss it but i won't not be able to handle my tuesdays anymore haha. :*(

I cried as soon as it started and didn't stop til the end. I thought it really did the show justice. Nothing over the top or unbelievable. I knew this show couldn't last forever, no show can. And I was worried that after Rory graduated Yale they'd do something lame to keep her around and it wouldn't be right. I'm just sad I won't get to see Lane's babies grow up or Luke and Lorelai finally getting married. I'm sad that there's no more stars hollow and that tuesday night is going to be something totally different now.

Wow, what to say? Gilmore girls is my absolute favorite show, and to see it end was a true dissapointment. It was always a girl's night w/ chinese (takeout) every Tuesday as we watched Lorelei & Rory...The ending for me was too much of a cliffhanger and I so wanted more. The whole Rory & Logan breakup was a HUGE dissapointment for me because their relationship went from perfect to nothing, & that just sucked! I don't know, I guess I just wanted the show to go forver and now it's not. My most touching moment of the last episode was when Lorelei told Rory she wanted to get her a "sippy" coffee cup and Rory told her she had given her everything she needed...I completely lost it--I was crying like a baby. I can only hope Rory changes her mind and decides to do at least a mini season---PLEASE!!!!

I thought the finale was horrible. There was no closure to any of the plot lines. 3 Years they develop rory and logan and in one sentence they are over? One second rory doesnt have a job and the next she does? Luke and Lorelai seasons of confusion and now a necklace and a glance is supposed to suffice. Not to say that I am a crazy fan or anything...but the finale did a disservice to all of the fans. Everyone accepts that it is over...just give the fans some sort of was on for 7 seasons. Am I the only one that thinks it sucked?

I was disappointed because I had totally convinced myself that Jess would make a reappearance, just for the finale, but he didn't (I'll just have to assume that he and Rory run into each other sometime down the road and live happily ever after). Aside from that, though, I thought it was a really sweet, albeit super predictable, last episode. I wish they'd made it a little more fun, a little less sappy, but that's alright. I'm going to miss this show, but I don't know how they ever thought they could turn this into another season!

i'm sad. i wish it would have gone on another season. i want to know what the characters will be doing with their lives. yeah, the peak into the future is kinda lame but it finishes things for me. someone mentioned how they ended The OC, i agree, they should have done that. just to make me feel better at least. bye

I was in a state of shock while watching the finale. I still just couldn't believe it was over. The feelings I felt were similar to when Friends went off the air. I liked the episode, I think they tied up loose ends with Rory well, but I think some of the other characters didn't get a great ending. I agree that Sookie deserved a better ending (but I guess it's safe to assume that the Inn will go on as normal). Gilmore Girls will remain number 1 on my Tivo season pass even though there are now only reruns, it's my sorta little tribute to my favorite show these past years.
