TwirlyGirly January 27, 2017 Share January 27, 2017 (edited) I find it fascinating there is little or no mention in the series of either of Emily Gilmore's parents (we don't even know Emily's maiden name!), or Richard's father, Charles (except that Trix and Charles were second cousins, and Charles passed away well before the series began). Trix, Richard's mother, is presumed dead at the beginning of the series (S1/E3), but is mysteriously resurrected to visit Richard and Emily in S1/E18 ("The Third Lorelai"), and makes appearances in several subsequent episodes (S3/E10 "That'll Do, Pig", S3/E15 "Face-Off", S4/E14 "The Incredible Shrinking Lorelais"). Because parents have a profound influence on the people their children become (for better or worse), can we look at Emily and Richard with a critical eye and create a profile of the type of people Emily's parents and Richard's father were? What were their names, educational backgrounds, place in society? How did they parent Emily and Richard? This is your thread to share their imagined backstories!
