Did You Know?


In this episode, Rory was looking through a photo album and saw a pic of baby Lorelai drowning in a sea of petticoats. Later on in "Emily in Wonderland", Rory asks for a baby picture of her mom and Lorelai and Emily both tell her that there are none. Wouldn't Rory know that there is at least one because she saw it in this episode? When Rory pulls out her mother's photo album, we see the coming out gown that Lorelai was supposed to wear. In "Presenting Lorelai Gilmore", Emily supposedly gives Rory this same dress to wear, but the dresses look nothing alike. Also, in the album it is Lauren Graham in the photo (as well as some photos of Lorelai and Christopher), however in the flashbacks in "Dear Richard and Emily", it is Chelsea Brummet playing young Lorelai. Shouldn't she be in the photos? See more »

Lorelai: When I was five, I had a really bad ear infection and I had been home in bed for a week and I was very sad. So I wished really hard that something wonderful would happen to me, and I woke up the next morning and it had snowed. And I was sure that some fairy godmother had done it just for me. It was my little present.

The One With The Snow...
24 July 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode. I love how Lorelai makes a huge deal out of snow, as that is exactly what I do.

In this episode, Lorelai senses the snow is coming, and when it does, she is very happy and excited. She runs into Rory's teacher, Max, in Stars Hollow, as his car has broken down. She invites him to come back to her house, and when they get there, someone very unexpected is also waiting. Meanwhile, Lane feels like she is being left out of Rory's life.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Great.
