I know I'm not the only W who watched this...

How was that not the perfect finale? I know the show didn't leave much time for Lorelai and Luke to finally get back together, but I enjoyed the way it was all so unspoken. Yes, Luke gave Lorelai the necklace off camera, and everyone KNOWS that Lorelai is going with Luke on the boat trip since April and Rory can't make their pre-planned vacations. They knew they had to say what they had to say in the amount of time they had, and the rest can be perfectly left up to the imagination of the viewer.

Lorelai's last minute fit of advice was amusing. I also liked the parallel of Zach and Jackson (both best friend's husbands) delivering the girls to the party under the umbrellas. I also like Lorelai's warming to her mother in listening to her spa idea and also continuing Friday Night Dinner.

Watching that episode, I can't understand how anyone could have tried to bring the show on for another season. I will miss it. Thank you, Gilmore Girls, for providing a character with flannels and a backwards baseball cap I could admire, and a weekly dose of Lauren Graham.

You believe me, don't you?
Please believe what I just said...

Great way to end the show, nothing too spectacular, nothing earth shattering. Just another slice of life for a slice of life show.

I am glad it ended before it totally ran out of steam, although it was kinda hard to root for Lorelai to get Luke after what she did this season, but what are you gonna do?

What show can I be a closet fan of now???

Dean! Have you been shooting dope into your scrotum? You can tell me! I'm hip!

X-E's co-Worst Poster of all time! says:

Well it was what it was, which is to say a good enough wrap up of a once great series reduced to a merely pretty good one.

Nearly everyone got face time (Gypsy!)or at least a name drop (DAVE!) which felt good so I'll overlook the lack of Jess's name or TJ making an ass out of himself one last time. Plus Kirk is one of the reasons I started on the show so the fact that his last line was so riotously funny was awesome.

Lorelei: Hey Kirk.
Kirk: I can't hear you! I popped an ear drum!

I'm glad they ended it on such an up note so soon, because Rosenthal is good but he's not a genius like the Palldinos so I don't know how long he could have kept the ball rolling.

Personally, I liked the suggestion of a Stars Hollow spinoff that would focus on everyone else, and I'm not entirely opposed to seeing April grow up and Luke & Lorelei marry then have kids, but that would have to be under the Palladinos or someone helping Rosenthal, both super unlikely so I'll say goodbye now, a proper goodbye, which I don't get to do with a lot of the other quirky series I've watched.

Bon Voyage, Rory, and may I suggest that when Obama's presidential campaign ends up in New York that you go and see how Jess is doing?

After last night... I'm suspecting our evil buddy Walt Cummings is trying to pull a sting on the terrorists. It's never clear-cut like this without it being some type of swerve (witness Gael in Season 3).
