I am new to posting on this thread, I usually just lurk. I am a HUGE GG fan. I quote it and relate it to almost all life circumstances...oddly amusing.
I was so emotional last night. I cried so hard when Lorelai told Luke about Christopher. He was so desperate to keep her in his life. When he said something about his life not meaning anything if he could not share it with her (or something like that) I could not even hold back anymore...it was all out hysterics.
I am a little sad about the way things look like they are heading. Luke has screwed up so much recently, but he did it with good intentions. He was so crummy to Lorelai, but he thought this was the only way to make it work with his daughter. It looks like they are going to put Lorelai and Christopher together, and I think that is so disappointing. If Lorelai told Luke he was the only person she ever loved would the break up not be that much worse for her. I just do not think she would get into another relationship with Christopher so soon after, especially with their history. She knows it is not going to be casual, get your mind of the love of your life, dating. I do not have anything against Christopher, but I feel like there has been too much leading up to Luke and Lorelai being together. They waited years for each other, and I really liked them together before all the April stuff. Remember the ice skating rink he made for her…
My other issue is that Lorelai really did not appear to be grieving over the relationship as I would expect she would. I know that she said that it hurts too much to be in the relationship because of all the rejection and him not fighting for her, but she seems to be going through the breakup too easily. I do not expect the same act as the last time they broke up, but I thought it was strange how she did not even want to be with him when he arrived and asked her to elope. He did not fight for her that night, but he came to her the next day desperate to keep her in his life. I can definitely understand her perspective of not wanting to be involved in something that hurts so much, but on the other hand she was willing to have the relationship mended by an elopement the night before. Once she told him about Christopher I am sure things would have worked out the same, but this time it was her fault that they could not work out. She seemed to put it all on Luke because of his bad reaction, but she made an even worse one.
I look forward to discussing all the upcoming episodes.
