Girls Girls:Dear Emily and Richard
30 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode has been by far one of the best during this third season. It was quite interesting to see the flashbacks to Lorelai's teenage years and to also see a younger version of Christopher. Since we have not really seen him much throughout the seasons of Gilmore Girls. Also Rorys reaction to being left alone in the hospital with her dads pregnant fiancée is hilarious. Lorelai also handled the Christopher/Sherry situation very well in this episode. It also showed how well she is coping with the realisation that Christopher has his own family ,and can no longer be there for her and Rory in a family retrospect. This episode was also interesting because we got to see Lorelai as she was before Rory was born,which was cool.
