Chis comes back and sleeps with Lorelai
4 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

Chis comes back into Rory's life and she thinks that her dad is this really special man that can do no wrong. So she takes him on a tour of Star Hollows where at the book story he tries to buy her this really expensive book and his credit card is declined and chis gets scared and tell the story owner to hold the book for them and that he will bring another card. He then tells Rory not to tell her mom (makes you think if he is in trouble) they go to an dinner at Rory's grandparents' house where chis's parents go as well and haven't seen since before Rory's was born. in the end Rory's grandfather and chis's dad get in a fight about Rory, and chis and Lorilyn sleep together on her balcony.
