hippielamb August 7, 2016 Share August 7, 2016 Emily Says Hello Emily was funny in freak-out mode, sad final scene though. I like the conflict between Chris and Rory, it feels very believable. When she told Marty that she used to be so eager for her dad to visit and now she's not, reflects a lot of kids attitudes who grew up with absentee parents. I also like Chris telling Rory that he has a prior relationship with Lorelai. Kids sometimes forget that their parents knew each other as people before becoming mom & dad. Pushkin Rory's nerdiness is in full display in this episode. The Luke/Lorelai fight is stupid. For someone so spoiled and entitled, it's surprising that Lorelai allows Luke to yell at her like that. Also, let him sell his boat if that's what he wants. It feels like manufactured conflict. Logan and friends skit combined with Richard's con of Logan were the only funny parts. Rory and Richard scenes were so cute together. I love their relationship. Women of Questionable Morals Lorelai was adorable in the opening scene. I am glad Chris and Rory got things sorted but would have wished to see it onscreen. Same with tequila night. Lorelai can have a drinking night with anyone she wishes but hiding it from your SO is a bad idea. She should have told Luke, and if he had a problem they could have discussed why it was an issue. Same thing with Richard and Pennilynn. I don't like the lack of trust that is in most of these relationships. Come Home I really enjoyed the Mrs Kim and Lane scenes. Zach bonding with Mrs Kim seems like it should put Lane off but we know it doesn't. I don't like the jealous outburst of Richard. He's one of my favourite characters and I didn't find him likable in that scene. Emily gets a lot of criticism for going to Chris but I believe she thought she was doing what was best for Lorelai. She wants her daughter to succeed, notice how proudly she told Miss Celine about Lorelai opening her own inn. Plus, she knows the history between Lor & Chris. I don't think Emily considered that it would push Lorelai away since that has been something she has tried to avoid for most of the series. Wedding Bell Blues I was thinking of the discussion of Lorelai's separate worlds rewatching this. Her world with Chris that involves tequila and sneaking flasks into a funeral is about to collide with the Luke world where she's Stars Hollow Lorelai. They don't mesh well lol It's interesting that Lorelai doesn't tell Chris she is dating Luke until she introduced them. It reminded me of Chris not telling her about Sherry until after she made an overture to him. Rory trying on a Lorelai persona is fun to watch, and I love her scenes with Logan but we know that's not really her. Luke was out of line with the business about Rory. I guess he was mad at both Lorelai and Christopher, justifiably so but commenting on Chris' presence in Rory's life bugs me. I do get why he's mad. Lorelai only told him about tequila night because Chris was at the wedding. And she didn't tell her ex that she was in a relationship with someone else. It feels like real conflict instead of the boat/dark day rubbish we saw a couple episodes ago. 2 Link to comment
