Today, some very sad scenes were shot for Gilmore Girls. These photos, taken by Alison, set the scene all on their own:
As you know, Edward Herrmann passed away a little more than a year ago, and with the Gilmore Girls revival under way, it has always been known that we would be moving from a point where Richard, too, had passed. In the Gilmore Girls universe, we will start off the Winter episode 3 months after Richard’s passing, which is still a very raw point in the lives of those who loved him.
There has been some speculation that we may see some sort of memorial service for Richard, or a celebration of life, even if it was 3 months since his passing. The other guess has been that we will see more about Richard’s death through the use of flashback moments.
No matter the exact scene, we know that every eye will be teary when watching the scene unfold. We all truly miss Edward Herrmann / Richard Gilmore, truly the backbone of the series and the rock upon which the Gilmore girls all relied. I can’t imagine how hard filming a scene like today’s would have been on the cast.
Such a sad day. #BowtiesForever
