GilmoreGossipCircle (or is it?)

I’m not convinced what I’ll watch instead of plucking out mine eyes tonight will even count as Gilmore Girls, but here you go:

The Long Morrow: The seventh-season opener picks with Lorelai in bed with Christopher the morning after her argument with Luke. Now she faces the reality of her impulsive act and her belief that the engagement is over. She spends time with Rory, who is puzzled by a mysterious gift that Logan left her.

Description not from the CW, since their flash-heavy site doesn’t seem to include one. (Bad sign.) Join me back here for gnashing of teeth later…

It feels like the end.

Partings. In the sixth-season finale, Lorelai tries to avoid Luke and ends up pouring her heart out to a psychologist (Melora Hardin) who was invited to dinner at her parents’ house. Elsewhere, Rory tries to avoid the Huntzbergers, particularly Mitchum, as she attends Logan’s graduation and prepares for his inevitable departure; and Taylor’s bothered by an influx of troubadours to Stars Hollow. Mary Lynn Rajskub, Sam Phillips, Grant Lee Phillips, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Sparks and Joe Pernice appear.

At least we have the bands to look forward to.

Whoopsie:

Driving Miss Gilmore. Temporarily unable to see after minor eye surgery, Emily (Kelly Bishop) enlists Lorelai’s (Lauren Graham) help as her driver and companion, finally revealing a huge surprise that catches Lorelai completely off-guard. Meanwhile, Rory takes charge of Logan’s recovery when he is released from the hospital. Finally, Luke (Scott Patterson) helps his sister Liz (Kathleen Whilhoite) and her husband T.J. (Michael DeLuise) deal with Liz’s pregnancy. Melissa McCarthy, Edward Herrmann, Yanic Truesdale, Liza Weil and Sean Gunn also star. The episode was written by Amy Sherman-Palladino & Daniel Palladino and directed by Jamie Babbit.

Oh, how sad this episode made me, because it felt like a return to form. Definitely one of the better eps of the season, I thought. Which means most of y’all probably hated it.

Why am I suddenly feeling like I have to watch the rest of this season with my hands over my eyes?

Super Cool Party People. Luke (Scott Patterson) decides to give April (Vanessa Marano) a birthday party at the diner. Lorelai (Lauren Graham) volunteers to help, and is hurt when Luke explains that he still thinks it’s too soon for April and Lorelai to meet. However, Luke changes his mind when the party is a disaster, giving Lorelai a chance to bond with April while turning the party into a huge success. Meanwhile, Rory (Alexis Bledel) rushes to be with Logan (Matt Czuchry) at the hospital after he is seriously injured during a stunt with the Life and Death Brigade. Melissa McCarthy, Yanic Truesdale, Liza Weil and Sean Gunn also star. The episode was written by David Rosenthal and directed by Ken Whittingham.

Whoops:

I Get A Sidekick Out of You. On the night before Lane (Keiko Agena) and Zach (guest star Todd Lowe) get married, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) plans for a bachelorette party go awry, as do the plans made by Zach’s buddies, so the two groups end up together for a makeshift party in a vacant parking lot. Mrs. Kim (Emily Kuroda) informs Lorelai that she cannot attend Lane’s wedding without an escort. Since Luke (Scott Patterson) is still out of town, Lorelai invites Christopher (David Sutcliffe) to be her date. Everyone attends two wedding ceremonies-one Buddhist and one Seventh Day Adventist-followed by a wild wedding reception in the town square. Melissa McCarthy, Yanic Truesdale, Liza Weil and Sean Gunn also star. The episode was written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino.

Get the train back on the tracks, ASP.

Well, this is kind of aberrant. A new episode of Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on the same night (portent?). I’m doing a post for each though, so things don’t get all confused later.

"The Real Paul Anka" Lorelai (Lauren Graham) has a bizarre dream in which singer/songwriter Paul Anka has a cameo role. Meanwhile, although Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Logan (Matt Czuchry) are back together, Logan is miserable knowing that Rory hasn’t really forgiven him, and he takes off with his friends for another stunt with the Life and Death Brigade. Rory accepts Jess’ (guest star Milo Ventimiglia) invitation to attend an open house at his new book store/art gallery/publishing house in Philadelphia. While there, she is surprised to run into Luke (Scott Patterson), who is accompanying his daughter April (guest star Vanessa Marano) on an academic field trip. Back in Stars Hollow, Lorelai is horrified to find that Richard (Edward Herrmann) and Emily (Kelly Bishop) have been looking at real estate in her town. Keiko Agena, Liza Weil and Sean Gunn also star. The episode was written and directed by Daniel Palladino.

Oh, great, a character assassin-penned ep. At least there’s Jess.

The verdict is out:

I’m OK, You’re OK. Rory (Alexis Bledel) forgives Logan (Matt Czuchry) for his indiscretions, then needs some time for herself, so she pays a visit to Lorelai (Lauren Graham) in Stars Hollow. Although Lorelai (Lauren Graham) refuses to admit that she is upset, Rory can tell that she is bothered by the news that Luke (Scott Patterson) will be gone for a few days on a field trip with his daughter, April (Vanessa Marano, who does not appear in the episode). Against Lorelai’s wishes, Rory pays a visit to the store owned by April’s mother, Ana (guest star Sherilyn Fenn), to spy on her. Meanwhile, when Zack (Todd Lowe) finally works up the courage to ask Mrs. Kim (Emily Kuroda) for permission to marry Lane (Keiko Agena), he is surprised at the deal she makes with him. Melissa McCarthy, Edward Herrmann, Kelly Bishop, Yani Truesdale, Liza Weil and Sean Gunn also stars. The episode was written by Keith Eisner and directed by Lee Shallot Chemel.

Wow, they’ve been going a really long time without new episodes this season. (Not as bad as VM, but close!) Anyway, at least there’s promise of Lane-y goodness.
