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.

The town stuff was very well done and I liked the birthday party. Lorelai was more Lorelai than she has been for most of this season in this episode.
But why are they killing Luke’s character? And why did they cast Can’t Act To Save Her Life as April’s mother? What happened to you, Sherilyn Finn? And shouldn’t April be smart enough to fix this?
I haven’t had time to watch the whole episode yet, but halfway through, I’m not displeased, and I’m liking Lorelai. I’m glad they finally had Luke come out and give a direct reason for wanting to keep Lorelai out of his relationship with April, and even though it’s a reason that makes me think Luke is an asshole, at least it’s a meaty reason we can work with.
Favorite thing so far: Paris’ mystical powers of pre-med coercion. Paris is pre-med? Why did I not know this? That’s perfect, and I love seeing her be (in a domineering way) almost calmly competent.
I think the show is pushing towards a jumping of the large pointy-toothed aquatic thingy. Luke seems less likeable and believable with every episode. Can he possibly be that oblivious to Lorelai’s feelings? And what happened to her? Brave, plucky Lorelai is just taking this one on the chin, again and again and again. It hardly seems consistent with her character. This ep. isn’t a bad one, but it seems like Lorelai has been taking a kicking all season, and without standing up for herself much. I also think that dropping whassisname of a cliff so Rory would forgive him was a bit excessive.
