What would the ‘Gilmore Girls’ revival-revival be about?

Highlight on New Movie Released DVD

It should come as no surprise that Netflix is considering another “Gilmore Girls” revival, after the massive success of the first installation. The four feature-length episodes only detailed one year in the life of Emily (Kelly Bishop), Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) — and that ending wasn’t exactly what we’d call closure.

For heaven’s sake, the final four words everyone has been obsessing about for the past 10 years were the biggest cliffhanger the show ever dropped!

Now that we all might be headed back to Stars Hollow, it’s time to consider which stories are left to tell — and more importantly, which ones should just not be messed with.

Rory’s pregnancy

Obviously we have to lead with the bomb of all bombs — Rory’s unexpected pregnancy.

For all we know, Rory could exercise her right to choose, given that Logan is living in London with his fiancée after Rory let him go for good, and thus not an excellent partner to raise a child with. She could also go the adoption route if she doesn’t feel like keeping the child is an option, or we could get the most likely option: Rory as a single mother. It would make a pretty complete circle, Rory raising her baby girl — come on guys, it’s totally a girl, check the title — as a single mother, just like Lorelai before her.

Sure, we’d love four 2-hour episodes of Logan Huntzberger (Matt Zuchry) just livin’ his life, havin’ fun, ignoring calls from Rory — but that’s probably not on the table.

Being the father of Rory’s unborn child means Logan would have to be a massive part of the story — and frankly, we kind of want a do-over for him. Seeing Logan as the same rich, cheating douchebag he was in college wasn’t exactly what we’d call satisfying, so we’d like to see Huntzberger step up to the plate and mature, really learn to be a better person. Becoming a father might be the perfect way to launch that arc for him.

Luke & Lorelai’s kids

Besides their brief research on surrogates, the topic of Luke (Scott Patterson) and Lorelai having kids wasn’t really properly addressed in “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.”

Since it took them nearly a decade to actually get married, we’re not hopeful these two would ever get their act together in time to have kids, but we’d still love to see how their little family develops. We’d settle for watching them be AWESOME grandparents to Rory’s new bundle of joy.

Honestly, we kind of loved how Emily’s story ended, and we wouldn’t change much about it. Selling the old, austere mansion in Hartford felt like a solid way to close that chapter of Emily’s life — and we adore the absurd tour-guide retirement “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” came up with for her.

Our only request for Emily is that we get to see her throw a fit at missing Lorelai’s secret wedding — because you just KNOW she had an opinion on that.

‘Gilmore Girls: The Novel’

It might sound a little too meta, but we kind of hope the revival has Rory launching her own epic success story via her “Gilmore Girls” novel.

Rory’s directionless wandering in the revival felt very true to the times and the current economy, but we didn’t get a very good payoff in terms of Rory’s career. Seeing her become a novelist (and a successful one at that) would be the cherry on top, as far as this revival-revival goes.

Why, oh why, did we wait ten years to see Rory and Jess end up together — only to get a vague “if only” gaze through a window? The revival didn’t pay off the Rory and Jess relationship the way most fans wanted, and we’d expect a second revival to rectify that mistake, or at least revisit it.

And while they’re at it, can we get a better picture of Jess’ life in Philadelphia? We loved that Season 7 peek into his publishing company, after all…

“Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” is available for streaming on Netflix.
