When Richard and Emily have no real reaction to the news of her break up, Lorelai suddenly realizes that most of her emotional life has been based on doing and feeling the opposite of whatever her parents want. Later, when Michel forces Lorelai to attend Emily's cotillion dance, Lorelai discovers that some things her parents wanted for her weren't really that terrible. Meanwhile, Rory has a tough time making her long-distance relationship work. Written by Alex

10 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I hate the way the show is going this year. They are trying to make us think that Chris has been this great guy all these years and, yet, he has been portrayed as an irresponsible man and father to Rory until he came into some money. Now, he is just the best?? You have got to be kidding!! This show was started on the assumption that Luke and Lor would come together as a unit and stay together. I could see some bumpy times like all relationships but not jumping out of Luke's bed one night and into Chris' bed the next nite. I sure hope young people aren't watching this show. It sure isn't sending a good message to them. I have all 6 seasons on DVD but, so far, will be saving money on this one.
