Gilmore Girls fans are so devoted that we analyze every single detail of every single thing about the show. With the upcoming release of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, that has meant dissecting every new image. Sometimes, though, we can get carried away.
With this new image from Netflix, we see a plate of Pop Tarts with a single apple and many people have messaged me wondering if the apple could be a clue. Lorelai once said apples were her ‘pregnancy’ fruit. She explained, in Season 5:
“Okay, see, I’m eating an apple. Now, normally, this would not be a sign of anything except hunger. Except I don’t eat much fruit. I know I should, but I don’t have a hankering for it. Had it when I was pregnant with my first kid, though. Kept craving those apples. And this morning, boy, was I craving an apple.”
So, you know, when Gilmore Girls reveals an apple, everybody freaks out. Is Lorelai pregnant? Is Rory pregnant? People also believe that Lorelei’s shirt in the trailer, “I’m with human,” means she’s pregnant, instead of being a nod to a well-known designer
Only, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen an apple with some Pop Tarts. In the first season, Lorelai serves Rory & her friends a plate of Pop Tarts and a single apple before taking them to the Bangles concert.
Okay, okay. I definitely think I over-reacted just a little! 😂😂 The quote that Netflix used in their caption –" Pop-Tart appetizers to hold us over 'till the pizza comes. And one apple" is almost identical to the quote said by Lorelai in episode 13 of season one when Rory, Paris, Madeline and Louise are working on their school project and go to the Bangles concert! She even serves them an identical plate of pop-tarts with an apple in the center. The "And one apple" part of their caption and all of the comments on the photo definitely through me off! Sneaky, Netflix. 😉 I hope this clears some things up and that our theory is right and Lorelai isn't pregnant! (I personally don't want her to be pregnant in the revival.) #gilmoregirls #gilmoregirlsrevival #ggonlyrevivalnews #lorelaigilmore #rorygilmore #laurengraham #alexisbledel #starshollow #poptarts #coffee #apple #netflix #gilmoregirlsrevival #gilmoregirlsayearinthelife
So, let’s not over analyze! Sometimes a shirt is just fun and an apple is just an apple.
I also love that Pop Tarts were included in Alexis’ / Rory’s little visit to Michelle Obama.
