    I just read an old update about Alexis starring in a movie called The Orphan King. Was she really nude in that movie? That just really doesn’t sound like her to me. She seems too shy for that. Is that why you can’t find it anywhere? This is scaring me. This isn’t the Alexis we have grown to love.

    i feel that Mia does remind emily gently that she plays a major role in rorys life now, but while watching this episode i felt sad for emily picturing that she must have felt left out during the years lorelai ran away

    in turn i feel that lorelai undersatnds what emily is going through and tries to reach out to her which is really nice

    This episode was good too for being a turning point for Emily and Lorelai. That’s what I love about Season 7; it begins to heal relationships and take them to a better place.
