Whether You Love or Hate Them: The ‘Gilmore Girls’ Final Four Words
The last four words. Did you love them or hate them?
Firstly: SPOILER ALERT! Don't continue to read if you haven't watched the fourth and final episode concluding the recent Netflix "Gilmore Girls" wrap up.
Fans of the "Gilmore Girls" will understand the "Last Four Words" have been a question burning in our minds since the series finale in 2007. In a 2006 interview with TV Guide, creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino confirmed that she already knew the last four words of the show. The backstory of course though is that the interview was done right before she exited the series before its seventh and last season, so fans just assumed they would never get to hear them.
However, cut to the final scene of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life,” which was released on Friday … and well, the final four words were revealed and fans seem to have some complicated feelings toward the last scene.
The final scene takes place in the middle of Stars Hollow town square, Lorelai and Rory are sitting in the gazebo on the day of Lorelai and Luke’s wedding. Lorelai of course jokes that Rory should follow suit and get married so that the duo can do the whole “married lady things” together.
The conversation is interrupted when Rory gets an email from her current boyfriend Paul. He is breaking up with her, which she finds to be a relief because she was just putting off breaking up with him, but she kept forgetting he existed.
“I can’t believe how I treated him,” Rory says. “I suck.”
“No you don’t. He didn’t fit. It needs to fit, believe me,” Lorelai consoles Rory.
“He’ll find someone amazing one day. And so will you.” She notices Rory is silent.
“Hey, what’s going on in there?”
“I want to remember it all. Every detail,” Rory says, a little distracted. Then, THE FINAL FOUR WORDS:
Rory: “I’m pregnant.”
Cue theme song and that's it. “Where You Lead” by Carole King as the credits roll...
So what did you think? Hate them? Love them?
