Even better is her caption of the same image on Instagram:
“Watch out Paris the bitch is back #gilmoregirls #gilmoregirlsrevival”
Emily Bergl played the amazing Francie Jarvis in 4 episodes of Gilmore Girls during Seasons 2 and 3. Francie was another high profile student at Chilton, who was the leader of The Puffs, the secret society at Chilton. I was a huge fan of her character on the show, the “mean girl” providing a solid counterpoint to Rory at Chilton.
Given the number of scenes filmed at Chilton, and the revelation of Rory’s (guest) lecture at Chilton, it is very likely that Francie is back (with Rory and Paris) at Chilton for some sort of alumni event. Perhaps they are all helping in some sort of career day, or simply there to give guest lectures?
Emily Bergl is now the 42nd confirmed actor returning to Gilmore Girls!
