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?
