Trivia

Rory decides that she wants to try for the fellowship instead of taking the job at the paper in Providence. Rory picks up a coffee mug but not by the handle. In the next scene, however, she is holding it by the handle. Pretty neat trick for someone whose other hand was busy holding a folder! Zach mentions his sons' names are Steve and Kwan. On this episode, when Paris asked Logan why he is now living with her, Rory and Doyle, he said that it is because the old apartment was paid by his father's company and as he no longer work there, they are no longer paying the rent for him. But, on sixth season, on the episode "Partings" (6x22), when Logan was going to London he told Rory that he had paid for the rent for the apartment for the next year, so she didn't need to worry about that, a little mistake of continuity. Possible Explanation: Logan had a new apartment in Manhattan following the one he and Rory shared near Yale campus. This NYC apartment is probably the one he was referring to as being paid for by his father's company. When Rory, Logan, Paris and Doyle are talking in the kitchen, the kitchen cupboard where Rory takes her coffee cup switches between being opened and closed in different camera shots. In the second season episode "Dead Uncles and Vegetables", Emily goes overboard when she helps Sookie plan her wedding. She comes up with the idea to move the gazebo in order to accommodate an orchestra. Jackson talks about the lunacy of the idea, and in this episode, Taylor manages to hire a crane to lift the gazebo to move it so as to make the hay bale maze more confusing. Watching this, both Lorelai and Sookie exclaim "That's insane!" both apparently having forgotten Sookie was once ready to do the same. April has new glasses and pierced ears. See more »

Logan & Rory---Finally a Good Story
23 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was one of the best episodes of the year. It was about time that Logan and Rory got some much needed screen time. The new producers and writers this year have done a terrible job with the storyline flows. The flows have been disjointed and don't follow each other smoothly. But finally we got a good episode that showcased Logan Huntzberger's natural goodness and intelligence. Logan is the most interesting and complex character on this show. He brings out the best in Rory and they have the best on-screen chemistry on television. Logan showed that he always has Rory's happiness at heart and he is perfect for her in every way. It was great to see Lorelei and Logan come to an understanding in the kitchen scene. One of the best scenes in the history of Gilmore Girls. Even Logan and Lorelei have chemistry. Logan has been totally underused this year. We get that the men on this show are secondary characters used to promote and showcase the women but the producers missed out on so many good story possibilities by using too much time on the Lorelei/Christopher debacle. What a waste! Amy Sherman-Palladino's wonderful creation (Logan) was used much better in the previous seasons. Having said that, it is obvious that they are setting up Logan and Rory for a season ending breakup. This is the most ridiculous and intelligence insulting storyline yet. So Rory is not talented enough to have a career and a husband? Hello, this is 2007 not 1957! Logan is the best thing to happen to this show. He has impacted all the major characters and is just a fascinating and intelligent person. He breathes new life into Rory and makes her a much more adult and interesting person. It will be beyond disgraceful if this once great show ends with Rory rejecting the love of her life. Talk about contrived story telling. And really, Logan Huntzberger deserves so much better. He has been falsely vilified by the insecure who automatically hate the rich. He has been used, like the other guys, as foils to prop up the independence of the Gilmore Girls. Fine, the show is about the "girls". But don't tell me that the only way Rory can be a success in life is to dump the man she has been expressing her love to for over two years now. It is so very obvious that Logan and Rory are deeply in love. It is beautiful to watch. Now the thought that the producers can wreck this beautiful love story so quickly and rudely is just absurd. If this happens then Rory Gilmore will not be a young woman to emulate. She will have been reduced to the role of a cold-hearted, selfish robot. This, along with the previous disjointed story lines will be a sad ending indeed to this season or series. Again, what a disjointed and insulting mess. One can only hope that an 8th season would be used to correct these horrors and get Rory back to acting like the loving and thoughtful person she should be.
