Storyline

Emily and Richard are delighted when Lorelai and Christopher attend Friday night dinner together as a couple. Christopher reveals that Sherry has written him a letter saying she regrets leaving their daughter, G.G., and asking him to send G.G. to visit her in Paris. Lorelai can't believe that Chris would consider this and they get into an argument over dinner. Logan returns to town on business to acquire an internet company and pays Rory a surprise visit. Rory is thrilled, but during a dinner with Logan's colleagues, she realizes that she has no connection to his new business world, and is especially threatened by one of his beautiful co-workers. Meanwhile, Stars Hollow is plagued by a terrible odor when a train with a full load of pickles derails, and Taylor refuses to pay for the cleanup. Written by Alex

Stinky episode for sure
16 January 2021 | by ISmellSnowSee all my reviews

A train of pickles has derailed next to town so all of Stars Hollow is a stinky mess. That's it. That's the storyline.

Logan returns from London with exciting business news. He invites Rory to meet his team and she realizes that "Bobby" is a female and immediately feels jealous. Luckily she talks to Logan about it instead of bottling it up then lashing out like a typical Gilmore.

Chris receives a letter from Sherry asking for him to send GiGi over to Paris so she can see her. Him and Lorelai get into this ridiculous argument but thankfully come to terms and end up on the same page. I'm not even a Christopher fan and I think the argument is unnecessary.
