Idol Chatter

It’s official: After seven seasons the era of “The Gilmore Girls” is coming to an end. Yesterday Variety announced the news, confirming long-held suspicions among fans of the show:

“After weeks of talks aimed at bringing the show back for a limited run next season, the CW and Warner Bros. TV have decided to wrap production on the dramedy focusing on the witty banter between mom Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and her daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel). Skein, now in its seventh season, will air its final episode May 15.”

The million dollar question is, of course: Well, how will it all end?

Next episode has Logan proposing to Rory at her Yale graduation party–whether or not she says yes is unclear. Then there’s the seven-season long Luke and Lorelai saga–and the will they or won’t they back and forth that still has not gotten too old. And after all these years, fans are still hoping that they will.

My fantasy: Rory marries Logan and Lorelai marries Luke in a May 15th double wedding extravaganza! OK, so I know that is utterly cheesy, but it’s got just the right amount of extra cheese that inspires the likes of Lorelai and Rory to wildly over-order Chinese takeout and tuck in for the night in front of the television to dissect all that’s happened. In other words, it would be so ridiculous that it might actually be a fitting tribute to all that pop culture, reference-filled dialogue that makes “Gilmore Girls,” well, “Gilmore Girls.”

And it would be the ultimate homage to the Goddess of Mother-Daughter Relationship Perfection, to which the entire series is clearly a tribute.

Whatever they do, the producers had this to say to fans: “”(We) promise to give this series the sendoff it deserves.”
