'Gilmore Girls' headed for CW network this fall
"Luke, will you marry me?"
That was the question that kept us waiting for the answer for Gilmore Girls last season. And we all know the answer.
Where season five was at its best partly due to the long-awaited romance of Luke and Lorelai, this season was where the show took risks.
For years, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore have been more than mother and daughter. They have become both best friends and sisters. Now in this season, their relationship was put to the test. Season six of Gilmore Girls was ambitious because our mother-daughter duo went their separate ways for the first half:
Lorelai and Luke become engaged. They were fixing up the house and got a dog, Paul Anka.
Good-girl Rory went through a period of self-doubt, leading to not going back to Harvard and living with grandparents Richard and Emily. She decide to take a walk down the wild side with rich bad boy beau Logan. But after seeing former beau Jess, who did all right for himself, Rory finally decided to get her life back on track.
The second half was where order is resumed in the world with the Gilmore Girls reunited and finally have Friday night dinner with Richard and Emily, where all of them put everything on the table-- and I don't mean the food. But the biggest of all is Luke having a 12-year-old daughter, April, causing problems between Luke and Lorelai.
The season finale left us surprised with Lorelai and Rory's father Christopher in bed together. But it is even more of a surprise when the creators Daniel and Amy Sherman-Palladino left Gilmore Girls this season. Before you say "jump the shark", let's wait until next season and see what happened, when Gilmore Girls comes to the CW Network this fall.
Where the Gilmore Girls led, we will follow.
