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.

  1. I’m sure I’m in the minority, but at least at first blush, I don’t mind the speech. It’s about time she Finally Said Something… even if she totally backed off in the phone call.
    Just another reminder that even off the tracks ASP is the only person who can write the whole damn town.

  2. So, like, this is the second week in a row that my local (Baltimore) WB affiliate as pre-empted the show with a stupid Orioles game. And it doesn’t appear as if they get re-aired (at least, not till they get re-run nationally). Does anyone know any differently?

  3. I didn’t mind the speech – and let’s face it, it isn’t like someone (Kirk) won’t tell Luke – he’s going to find out and finally this stupid stalemate will be over.
    (And Luke skipped Lane’s wedding? How much of a jerk is he?)
    Richard – I think it is time to look to means of questionable legality.

  4. I didn’t mind the speech, except getting really embarassed by it for Lorelai. I was relieved that she didn’t end up sleeping with Christopher; I was really afraid that that was where they were headed, and that ain’t a direction I particularly cared to see it headed.
    I was very happy to see the further humanizing of Mrs. Kim, and that Lane’s relationship with her mother has evolved so much. (I’ve asked this before, but is there a Mr. Kim?) And I was oddly thrilled to see the return of the exchange student who’s name escapes me. I always like it when characters reappear. I also like it when Hep Alien plays.
    A good episode, even with the Lorelai tension and clearly-telegraphed “Logan-in-peril” plot twist. I’m hoping this season will find redemption after all.
