Did Dean Move Away from Stars Hollow?

Share

Jared Padalecki recently filmed a single day of scenes on the set of Stars Hollow for the upcoming Gilmore Girls revival, Gilmore Girls: Seasons. He came on set, sharing a great photo of himself at his trailer and posing for a photo with Yanic,but also filming a funny Batman vs Superman video that clearly showed him on set during the Fall episode, which is the finale episode of Gilmore Girls. Given that we believe Rory will chose from among her exes, and this information enabled us to place all 3 in the finale (Jess, Logan and Dean), this had many #TeamDean fans hopeful, despite his single day of filming. Hey, they can hope, right?

Well, not to burst too many bubbles (sorry!), Jared made some comments about his return to Gilmore Girls that make his appearance seem quite minor. On a recent panel at a recent event for Supernatural, where Jared answered a question about Gilmore Girls. As recounted, Jared confirmed that yes, he IS in the last episode, but that he did not read the full script (only his part). 

Jared said he felt like “Dean wouldn’t have known what was going on around him,” so he used that as a justification for not reading the rest of his Gilmore Girls script to add context. Based on this, you could read into it that Dean has been living quite separately from Stars Hollow, so perhaps he’s only back for a brief “visit”?

Jared one said he imagined Dean would be working as manager of Doose’s, but it seems like the Dean in the Gilmore Girls revival is much more out-of-sync with Stars Hollow, which would be impossible if he worked at Doose’s. And we kind of hope he found happiness and success on some other path. Wouldn’t it be great to see him as a Dad, perhaps? Just look at his adorable boys in real life!!

What do you think?

    I could see him as a father, just bringing his family back to SH for a visit and running into Rory. That way they both catch up with one another.

    I saw an interview with Lauren Graham in which she said she felt the series offered a very satisfactory closure, so I’m sure that’ll be true for each of the characters we love. Looking forward to seeing Dean as an admirable grown up, however that manifests itself. It was a bit weird to see him and Rory act very unDean and unRorylike there for a while. (Although everyone in the real world does make mistakes.)

    It would be good to see a decent ending for Dean. Much as I was never a huge Dean-Rory fan (or at least, not after season 1), it would be good to see him end up in a good place, or at the very least a better place than he was back in season 5.

    Dean was a wonderful 1st love. But they were young and eventually had to move on and grow. Would be lovely to see Dean all mature, remarried and with kids! Hopefully he went back to school and continued to work in the construction business…that seemed to fit his character.
