“Gilmore Girls” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has been telling us for years that she’s always known exactly how “Gilmore Girls” would end, with four words. Now that “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” is available to stream today on Netflix, we finally know what those four words are.
Bear in mind, though, that earlier this year Sherman-Palladino appeared at the Television Critics Association press tour and implored fans to watch all four feature-length episodes and not just skip to the end.
“It would be great if people who wanted to see the last four words first got some therapy first and got rid of that inclination,” she joked. “It really is a journey… it’s going to mean a lot less if you just flip to the last page. I would hope that people would want to take the whole trip. It’s a fun trip. It’s worth it.”
SPOILER ALERT: Naturally, somebody out there ignored that advice and fast-forwarded right to the end, and if you really can’t wait then be forewarned that the mother of all “Gilmore Girls” spoilers awaits if you don’t stop reading now.
If you’re absolutely, 100 per cent sure you need to know, then prepare yourself.
OK, here it is: In the final scene, Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) are sipping champagne on the gazebo shortly after Lorelai’s wedding to Luke. Rory has just received a breakup text.
“Mom?” says Rory?
“Yeah?” replies Lorelai.
Rory: “I’m pregnant.”
And now we now. Among those celebrating the show’s revival is star David Sutcliffe (who plays Rory’s father), who shared his excitement on Instagram.
