The Gilmore Girls Reunion Answered My Questions!


This is a companion post to our post from a month ago when I cobbled together this wishlist of questions for the cast reunion:

Keiko Agena (Lane), Yanic Truesdale (Michel) and Liza Weil (Paris)

Amy: Please write us a scene and have those present act it out right now.
Sadly unasked but it would have been awesome. Amy and Dan would have run up and down, whispering lines into people’s ears. Maybe next time…

Alexis: Team Dean, Jess or Logan? (I’d love her to say Team Rory).
The boys answered this so entertainingly I blogged about it about an hour ago, right here!

Also Amy: What was the town loner protesting?
Also unasked but I believe it was related to the rocketing price of McGuffins.

For All the Cast: What props or memorabilia did you yoink from the set?
This was asked by a fan and the segment was not included in the video, but it was mentioned in the EW live blog:

Keiko Agena (Lane): We didn’t know it was ending. I would have stole so much!
Daniel Palladino (writer and co-producer): We’ve got the original Stars Hollow sign in my house.
Milo Ventimiglia (Jess): I’ve got Jess’ leather jacket.

For All the Cast: What do you think happened to your character after the show ended?
The cast answers this in the video at the 34 minute mark. It’s been documented well in a few places including BuzzFeed, with the mic being passed fairly quickly down the line. While my favourite response is Jackson’s, will somebody please give Kelly Bishop a hug from me next time you see her?

Kelly Bishop (Emily): I actually think if Richard were still with us we would have been pretty much in the same place we were. I think we were very comfortable with that life with the country clubs and the right people and all that and still probably fighting the battles but now, um… now Emily’s a widow, so… that’s a whole other world.

So, I don’t know where she is.

Oh, Emily...

Just ah, give me a moment.


Jackson Douglas (Jackson Belleville): [After an entertaining trip down memory lane] To give you an actual answer, I would say… the vasectomy never took, there’s 42 children out there and uh, I ‘m actually farming children now, so… I guess that’s the best answer I can come up with.

Thanks to anyone who took these questions to ATX!

Rich originally began contributing to GIlmore News as 'Dairyman' in 2013, a reference to the character Dairyman Dick in Tess of the D'Urbervilles, (call me Rich). Here in the UK we were late to the Gilmore party and I don't remember what made me watch my first episode - the one where Lorelai picks Rory up from the police station after she and Logan steal a yacht - but I remember watching it again immediately. And then again. Thankfully, the next show was on the next day and I watched that one three times too. And then the boat one again. I couldn't believe the dialogue was so quick and so funny and I pretended to myself that I was only watching it so I could figure out who I was more keen on - the mom or the daughter. I swore that Aaron Sorkin must have been involved but I couldn't find his name attached anywhere, even on the internet. So I watched and loved and laughed and cried and the day after the series finale, they ran the entire show from the beginning again and Rory turned into a baby so then I was all about Lorelai. Lauren Graham is astonishing ("Mother: Breathtaking") and the show was - and is - lightning in a bottle. It's a treasure for those who watch and get swept up in it, like I did and like the readers of Gilmore News. It's heartbreak and chicken soup, family dysfunction and blind optimism, lighthearted romanticism and balls-out brilliant. Thanks to Arieanna and for letting me squat and allowing my inner Gilmore Geek out for air. I worry how it would otherwise manifest.
