Okay, try to stay calm (if that's even possible).
We already saw a new photo from the Gilmore Girls revival this week and even got to read the first page from the script! Now, three more photos have been released to help us stay strong until Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life airs on Nov. 25.
In the first photo, Emily (Kelly Bishop), Lorelai (Lauren Graham), and Rory (Alexis Bledel) are visiting a cemetery to mourn the loss of the wonderful and irreplaceable Richard Gilmore. Edward Hermann, who portrayed the Gilmore patriarch, passed away in 2014.
Make sure you watch this scene with several boxes of Kleenex at your side. We hope you're having a blast in bow-tie heaven, Mr. Gilmore. You're certainly missed.
The second photo takes us back to Luke's Diner, and it's awesome to see our favorite Stars Hollow grump in his uniform: A plaid shirt and a backwards, blue baseball cap. In true form, Lorelai is holding a coffee cup, while Luke (Scott Patterson) is pointing at Rory — or maybe he's pointing at the menu on the table? Either way, the important thing to note is that everyone in the photo looks amused and happy. Thank goodness for happy times!
Of course, there's one where Lorelai and Rory are enjoying the brilliance of winter. Perhaps it's the first snow of the winter season?! Damn, it would be so awesome to watch Lorelai blather on and on about how much she loves the first snow.
In a recent interview, Graham articulated the importance of the show's mother-daughter relationship over any romantic storyline. “I would be remiss if I didn't say that [Rory and Lorelai's] main strength, even if they believe in true love, is that they have themselves and they have each other,” Graham explained. “The show is sneakily feminist in that it's always been great for them to have love, but they're also okay when they don't...I think that's an underlying message of the show.”
We couldn't agree with you more, girl!
