Scott Patterson Reveals “Darker” and more Passionate Gilmore Girls

Share

Scott Patterson was recently interviewed at the pre-Emmy party over the weekend by Bustle, revealing a few emotional overtones we can expect from Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Scott notes that the longer format, 90-minutes (and I would say the switch to Netflix) has allowed the series to explore emotions differently, more intensely, as you would expect from a movie. 

“We did some really penultimate scenes. Really. ‘Cause it’s an hour-and-a-half, they’re movies, they approach them differently. The writing still has that pace and the humor, the quirkiness, there might be even more of that. Tonally, it does tend to go into some darker places, which has never been explored before, which I found really interesting.”

Scott explains that this intensity has transferred over to the on-screen relationship between Luke & Lorelai, which (despite being rather stalled) remains passionate:

“We’re together and we’re figuring out our next [steps]. There’s definitely some fireworks there. There’s stuff going on, let me tell you.”

And perhaps we’re going to see that passion more directly?

“Well there has been [sex] for a long time. We’re together,” says the actor. “I mean, we don’t arm wrestle at night, you know? We don’t play tiddlywinks.”

As the Bustle writer notes, 

So fear not, grown and mature GG fans, their sexual tension will be addressed. “Oh sure. I think so,” says Patterson. “Addressed again and again and again. And then we drink coffee.” Isn’t that how it always goes?

    Not liking the “darker tone” thing… but the rest of it sounds promising enough.

    Can’t wait. :D

    “Penultimate” means second to last. Scott must be thinking “dramatic”? “suspenseful”?

    I wish they would just bring it back permanently
    I love the show and watch reruns. Just bring up to date and go from there with everyone’s lives.

    Not looking forward to more sex between Luke and Lorelai at all. To me they have no romantic chemistry: they’re just friends who have sex for no other reason than they can.

    I’m looking forward to the announcement that an error was made in the dna lab and that odious twit is NOT Luke’s daughter!

    Dna wouldn’t make a difference, he already done damage to his relationship with lorelia. How could you make up for all that.
