Some of us hard core Gilmore Girl fans have been expecting Luke and Loreli to end up together for six seasons now. So the turn of events with Christopher back in Lore's life has made some of us a little sad. BUT! Remember Loreli's past with Max, she needs closure from Christopher. Enjoy the ride. As much as I want Luke and Loreli together its fun watching the chemistry between Loreli and Christopher. Luke and Loreli will come to their senses, but remember the season has just started. While they figure things out we also get to see Luke get close to his daughter April. Remember season one where Luke always looked at Loreli with that "look". He still does! As the characters get older so do we, so we have to accept change in their story lines. I'm a dedicated fan and look forward to Tuesday nights, with my bowl of popcorn and at the minimum laughing out loud about three times.Don't loose faith in the Gilmore Girl writers. They will not disappoint their fans!
