Ever since the end of Gilmore Girls, the top question everyone has had has been about who Rory should end up with. With three solid boyfriends in her past, Dean, Jess and Logan, it was never “who will she find in her future?” but who should she have chosen, with most fans believing she should end up with one of the suitors on the show. After all, that’s how shows work: a main character ends up with one of her existing suitors, whom we have spent time getting to know. It may not be realistic, but it’s expected.
So, fast forward to the news of the Netflix revival, and the top question again has been: “who will Rory choose?” #TeamDean #TeamJess and #TeamLogan have all been battling it out, so to speak.
Early on, Amy confirmed that Rory would begin the series as ‘dating’ / ‘single’ and we all presume she will be dating one of the guest stars, perhaps Paul, but that will end (perhaps one of the major ‘changes‘ we are told to expect from the plots). However, based on casting, we have been assuming a return of a past flame. Milo Ventimiglia has been confirmed for 3 episodes, Logan for several (including the finale, as confirmed by a co-star), and Dean for only 1 episode. This leaves #TeamJess battling with #TeamLogan.
Milo has gone on record to say he’s there to help force change for someone, as is his way. Many presume this puts him out of the running. Others point to the heavy involvement of the Life and Death Brigade in the finale, and this spoiler, as indications that Logan will redeem himself.
Now we have from Michael Winters the confirmation that Rory will indeed choose from among her suitors, from his Gilmore Guys podcast. So, who will Rory choose? Here’s what Michael has to say:
“I would not touch that hot button. I want to stay away from it, they’re all such nice guys — Jared and Milo and Matt, you know? I don’t know, who would decide, who could decide?
I think I know from the scripts who has an edge, but I’m not going there.”
So, that leads us to assume she will make a choice between Jess and Logan!
