Last week, Milo Ventimiglia made some comments about Jess’ return to Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, which prompted many to again think that Jess may be the “end game” for Rory. Milo has previously stated his opinion that he believed “it was never going to be Jess,” and though he does affirm that Rory will make a choice, he’s always said he was “popping in” to Stars Hollow, so that has felt (to me, at least) more temporary.
On August 19th, Milo Ventimiglia went to Wizard World Chicago where he talked at greater length about his return to Gilmore Girls, adding that yes, Kirk is still crazy, but also giving us something to think about. He was quoted as saying:

And you know what? That’s a super important question. It’s not just Rory who has a choice. Jess has a choice. And would Jess choose Rory?
In another interview with InStyle, Milo talks about just how much Jess has grown. And perhaps he’s grown away from Rory?
“Jess got to play around and experience a whole lot. From battling with his Uncle Luke to finding love with Rory, he was working out his own demons that sent him on his way to be this young son of a gun.”
“And as he kind of stripped away all this anger in his life from the hard times he was put through—with being estranged from his father, his mom driving him nuts, being put into a new environment, and just wanting to be on his own—he turned out to be a very, very great young man.”
“I think the journey from being angry to being content and smiling through life was something that was always fun for me to discover and play and get into.”
Now, don’t go saying I’m not #TeamJess here, I just want to stimulate a discussion. What do you think??
