Quotes

[to Rory, after an explosive family dinner between the Gilmores and the Haydens]
Emily Gilmore: I know you heard a lot of talk about various disappointments this evening. And I know you've heard a lot of talk about it in the past. But I want to make this very clear. You, young lady, your person and your existence, have never, ever been, not even for a second, included in that list.

The One With Rory's Dad...
8 September 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Now, I'm not going to lie. I absolutely hate Christopher. It's probably why I gave this episode an average/okay rating. The show would've been better off without him, especially in the last episode. But anyway, it's worth watching, however, I just have to block Christopher out to get through it.

In this episode, Rory's Dad, and Lorelai's ex, Christopher, stops into Stars Hollow for a few days. And it's the first time he's been there. They have dinner with the grandparents, but also with Chris hoer's parents, which lead to both sets of grandparents fighting, and saying things that shouldn't have been said.

Fun fact: Jackson introduces himself as Jackson Melville, but in later episodes his last name is Bellville.

Best part of this episode: Nothing in particular.

Worst part of this episode: Christopher.

Overall, I give this episode a 6 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Good.
