blast from the past

The best episode of the season, by a mile. And I really liked Jess in it - back in the day I thought he was an obnoxious little prick, but a fantastic depiction of the sort of obnoxious little prick that I would have totally gone for in my teens. He was a terrible boyfriend, but alas lots of us will put up with terrible boyfriends when we are too young and stupid to know better. I thought that if he could just grow up of the surly whininess, he and Rory could be good together. And now it looks like he has grown up a bit, and he's doing something cool, and I'm glad that his appearance woke Rory up. Because I always hated Logan, and I hated him and his stupid fucking friends even more than usual in this episode. When he was doing that authorial name-dropping crap at Jess I really did hope Jess would punch him. Or that Rory would punch him. Actually, the latter would have been more satisfying.

And Lorelai and Paul Anka! Awww. That scene made me cry. Although I laughed aloud when Lorelai casually revealed to us that the doggy day care centre was run by Kirk.

So, yeah, a great episode. Although I'm worried about the trailer. The obvious thing is a secret love child for Luke, which I can't help feeling would be pretty dreadful....

I was just amazed that Daniel Palladino wrote this one! Usually I can't stand his episodes because he fills them with obnoxious townies and makes the main characters annoying, but this was mostly townie-free, and everyone was likable (even Rory... and even Jess, who I used to hate). This week and last week's episodes were both just so good.

I don't want to spoil you, so all I will say is... it's bad.

Oh dear, I'm worried now.

And I agree about DP! I usually hate his quirky episodes too, but when he sticks to drama, he's not bad at all.

delurking for a moment...
The spoiler maven at tvguide.com swears up and down next week's episode is fabulous, and the thing everyone's worried about will be good. He's a big fan of the show, and pretty reliable as these sorts go, so I'm trying not to freak.

There are huge spoilers there, so if you generally try to avoid them, beware.

My fingers are firmly crossed.

Oooh, that's comforting. Although I am resisting the temptation to look at that review - I always regret looking at spoilers, even though right now I'm buring to know more!

You mean you haven't been spoiled?

I think I've given up on remaining unspoiled for anything. Which is sad, because I prefer the surprise.
