The Crossroads Faced by Rory, Lorelai and Emily

Share

It has been said many times now: change will be a big theme for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. The death of Richard Gilmore will propel each of our main three Gilmore girls to make changes in their lives. 

Michael Ausiello recently interviewed show creator Amy Sherman-Palladino about the journey these three women will take. Amy noted that Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is all about this journey:

“It’s about three women at a crossroads in each of their lives.”

For Emily, that means dealing with the death of her husband and her loss of identity. Who is she now? What is her life? “Where does she go from here?,” asks Amy. 

We know that Lorelai and Emily also face change and must “make some decisions.” For Lorelai, she faces her own challenges. As we know from an earlier spoiler, Lorelai isn’t married to Luke yet. But she isn’t single. Amy Sherman-Palladino describes her as a “single-yet-coupled independent woman” who has always kept her guards up, for herself and for Rory, and now struggles to find her path and her comfort following the loss of her father. 

We’ve been told that Rory is disillusioned with her journalism career, which comes out of the changing face of journalism and the struggles of many 30-somethings to get where they want to go. Amy continues, saying “It’s this idea of, you hit [your 30s], you did everything right — you went to college, you had the good grades, you worked really hard — and yet somehow life isn’t turning out the way you wanted it to turn out.” So, now Rory must decide what it is she wants and how to get it. 

Who else is excited to see where these decisions may take them?

    Wow, Mary. Not every woman decides her path in life by which man to choose. For goddess sake there are MANY other things in life.

    BTW, maybe if Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel actually WATCHED the first seven seasons of Gilmore Girls before they made the revival shows, they had some input. See, they’ve never seen the show. Sad but true.

    That’s why I love ASP’s writing so much: she keeps things real.
    Each one of the Gilmore girls is gonna go through stuff that’s real in their age and all.
    And I’m looking forward to see this final part of the journey in November *—-*

    I don’t think watching the show is ness to have input. They played those characters for seven years. And for Graham in particular, it’s obvious she has a connection and an understanding of ASP’s writing. Hell, the seventh season immediately became better when she became a producer (which is still might be).
