An In-Depth Analysis of the Official Trailer for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life

Share

With the release of the new trailer for Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, I decided to analyze the two minute clip for more details about the highly anticipated revival. From guest appearances to life events, the trailer revealed more than you thought about the miniseries.

The Time Period:

As previously released, the revival follows Lorelai, Rory, and Emily Gilmore through a year in their lives as we follow them through each season of the year: starting with Winter and ending in Fall. In the still from the trailer, in the far left there is a sign reading “Welcome to 2016.” This sets the initial time period for the show. We will be following the characters from Winter of 2015 to Fall of 2016.

The Campaign and the Coffee:

As Lorelai and Rory continue to walk through the Winter Wonderland of Stars Hollow, two details caught my eye. In the still, two signs are visible: one that seems to mention something about a “__witch to __ewer” campaign and how the people of Stars Hollow can help (does anyone have any guesses what the words could be?) and another that mentions the unknown word. Additionally, in both stills the coffee the girls are drinking is not Luke’s; it’s coffee from Al’s Pancake World. Did the girls ever drink coffee from there in the original series or is it just a fluke that it’s not from Luke’s in the opening sequence of the trailer?

Stars Hollow Events:

There are two known town events in Stars Hollow during the four-part revival. One being the Stars Hollow Spring International Food Festival which takes place in Spring and the other being Stars Hollow the Musical which takes place in Summer. The food festival which was rumored from last weeks photo released of Lane and Mrs. Kim at a Korean food booth, is now confirmed with a sign shown paired with an aerial view of Stars Hollow.

The Stars Hollow Musical is also shown for the first time with Sutton Foster and Christian Borle making an appearance as Pilgrims. Maybe the first citizens of Stars Hollow came over from the Mayflower?

Guest Appearances: From Butler to King

Stars Hollow is welcoming some new guests. In the audience for Stars Hollow the Musical (which at first appeared to be a town meeting– maybe it’s a town meeting with a show?), characters – new and old – are featured. From left to right and front to back are new cast member Sam Pancake as Donald, Lauren Graham as Lorelai Gilmore, Sally Struthers as Babette Dell, Rose Abdoo as Gypsy, Biff Yeager as Tom the Contractor, and Carole King as Sophie Bloom.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-12-00-55-pm

An additional guest appearance is of Kerry Butler who appears to be playing Lorelai’s therapist that she visits to discuss her relationship with Luke and life without her father.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-2-20-53-pm

The Gilmore Guys also make an appearance as guests in the Dragonfly Inn. As Lorelai whizzes past the dining room, Demi and Kevin are seen on their phones while eating a meal.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-11-54-06-am

The final guest appearances are of Sutton Foster and Christian Borle (see previous subtopic). Their singing, dancing, and acting talents will be featured in Stars Hollow the Musical.

Luke and Lorelai:

Java Junkie shippers can rest assured… or can they? Lorelai visiting a therapist to discuss her relationship may seem like their relationship is rocky, but it also could mean that it will be stronger than ever in the revival. Scenes of them holding hands and kissing are shown throughout the trailer. Scott Patterson also mentioned in a previous interview that two of his favorite Luke and Lorelai moments will be in the revival.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-12-06-32-pm

Could Luke and Lorelai be the couple getting married in the revival? Lorelai standing in the middle of the town might nod towards that being true. Occurring in fall, could this be Luke’s proposal to Lorelai? It seems like something Luke would do — take over the town, have dancers perform for Lorelai, decorate the town in lights– to ultimately create the romantic proposal he longed for in the original series. Imagine: Luke standing on the gazebo in a suit (to match Lorelai’s fancy attire) waiting for Lorelai to walk up to him through the lit town where he would then pop the question…? Before my imagination gets too wild, what do you think this scene represents? Will Luke and Lorelai finally have their fairytale ending?

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-12-08-22-pm

What’s Up with Rory?:

It was revealed that Rory Gilmore is living a vagabond lifestyle (wandering from place to place without a home) in the revival. Aerial shots of New York and London hint that Rory’s been traveling to both places since her career on the Obama campaign trail.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-11-51-58-amscreen-shot-2016-10-25-at-11-51-43-am

Similar to Lorelai, Rory seems to be questioning her life and how she ended up where she currently is. Through this process, she reaches out to a few friends; three of which are her ex-boyfriends: Logan, Dean and Jess. All three beaus are still as handsome as ever and appear to all three play a role in Rory’s life. It has been rumored that Logan re-connects with Rory in London and is the main contender as a boyfriend for Rory based on the Life and Death Brigade’s involvement in the revival. Dean is only in Fall and has a scene with Rory inside of Doose’s Market where he previously worked and shows no sign of being a love interest. Lastly, one encounter with Jess, as seen in the trailer, is inside of the Stars Hollow Printing Press, which Rory might be working at as revealed in a newspaper that was put up for auction by Gilmore actor Tanc Sade. Jess is also a contender for Rory’s boyfriend in the revival. As of now, it seems like Rory is single at the start of the revival and returns to Stars Hollow to re-discover herself.

Rory also connects with her long-time best friend Paris Geller. Although it’s not directly shown that Rory reaches out to Paris, after a little investigation and a re-watch of the trailer, it is revealed that the living room that Rory is sitting in is Paris’ as Paris is walking down the stairs and Rory is wearing the same outfit as she is when visiting Chilton. Additionally, a photo of Doyle is seen on the side table. It is unclear what Doyle is holding in the photo.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-11-58-41-am

The motive behind their visit to Chilton is still unknown, but a few explanations could be that Paris currently works there and is showing Rory around as inspiration, Rory and Paris speak to the students as alumni or that Rory ends up working at Chilton as an English teacher.

The Funeral:

Grab the tissues because the revival is going to be emotional. If you didn’t already cry while watching the trailer like I did — then you’re sure to cry during the revival which has an added theme of loss with the passing of Edward Herrmann who played Richard Gilmore.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-11-56-14-am

This still is one of the most beautiful shots from the trailer and reveals a lot about the emotional baggage the revival carries with it. Shown in the perspective of Lorelai and Rory, Emily Gilmore is at the coffin of her deceased husband, Richard. On the right, a shrine is shown in honor of Richard that features a photo of him and Emily from their vow renewal, his favorite books, and the Chuck Berry vinyl Rory* got him for his birthday. The white flowers and greenery of the setting creates a pure, peaceful environment and appears to be the picture-perfect setting for a much-needed remembrance of the beloved character and man.

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-11-55-47-am

Unanswered Questions:  

To wrap up this analysis, I wanted to end with some unanswered questions the trailer leaves. The first question is: Why is Kirk at Friday Night Dinner? No members of Stars Hollow ever appeared at Friday Night Dinner in the original series unless they were dating one of the Gilmore Girls. Obviously, that’s not the case for Kirk as he is with Lulu. Do you guys have any theories on why he is present, especially on the same night that Luke is there (based on the previously released photos found here).

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-11-53-49-am

The second question is: Who is arriving at Luke’s diner in a small limousine? My best guess is Emily with news of Richard’s passing or with the intention of visiting Lorelai; but, with Amy Sherman Palladino’s writing and unknown storyline, it could be anyone. Is someone famous visiting Stars Hollow? Have one of our townies gotten famous and now uses a limo and chauffeur?

screen-shot-2016-10-25-at-12-05-07-pm

My final question is: Why is Rory attending a comic-con-esque event or visiting a comic book store? (especially during the process of finding herself.) My best guess, based on IMDB, is that Rory is visiting a comic book store for a story she is writing for a newspaper (either Stars Hollows’ or another job she has during the revival– maybe in New York). I came to this conclusion because Shaniece Cole is credited as “Comic Book Owner” on the Year in the Life IMDB page.

Let me know what you think about the trailer, the questions posed, and the revival as a whole. Don’t forget to watch Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on Netflix on November 25th and to follow me on Instagram @gilmoregirlsonly to get up-to-date revival news.

      I think the same thing, as it happened in my own small town. I’m sure Taylor wants sewer instead of septic tanks for “development” of the town. We voted it down in my real life, and I hope they do too in Starts Hollow.

      A fair theory but in the Star Crossed Lovers and Other Strangers (season 1) when the town is setting up for the Firelight Festival Dean comments something like, “This town sure does like to celebrate…” to which Rory responds sarcastically with something about them having a month long carnival the previous year when they got off the septic system.

      I was wondering if the “Switch” in the sign was followed by a name… like a switch in leadership in Star’s Hollow a la Tippecanoe and Taylor, Too, when Jackson overthrows Taylor in the race for Town Selectman. Wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen a similar story line repeated in the series. Besides, seeing someone irritate Taylor is always good, classic, Gilmore Girls fun!

    It says switch to Sewer. Also, the “welcome to 2016” -appears in the Winter episode which is the first episode, so the revival time is from 2016-2017.

    Could the limo belong to Kirk? Maybe he hit it big in real estate! Maybe he is helping Emily sell her home or find a new one, and that is why he is at dinner. She was getting rid of clutter. Maybe she is moving as well; possibly to Stars Hollow! All speculation of course.

      I had the same thought! Why is no one talking about that? The next clip has Lorelai and Rory looking at something and seem really happy and the last one in the black dress has her surrounded by dancers. Luke isn’t wearing his baseball cap when driving them. This could be the proposal we have been waiting for!!

    Just to clarify, Rory got Richard the Chuck Berry album. Lorelai got him a book wrapped with a bow tie (which I think is also on that table).

    My guess about why Kirk is at Friday Night Dinner:

    He has started an event planning business and is there to help plan Luke and Lorelai’s wedding.

    BTW, I’m thinking the bit where Emily asks for an explanation of who that person is doesn’t apply to Kirk. She should know Kirk. But then again, it wouldn’t be the first time a mistake like that has been made on the show.

    A more interesting question: why was Luke wearing jeans, a flannel, and a ball cap at Friday Night Dinner? I have to wonder if that shot wasn’t a behind-the-scenes shot and Patterson isn’t just chatting with them between takes while waiting to film another scene.

    What about when Lorelai wear outdoorsy clothes and is reflecting on her life as she contemplates the forest? Doesn’t it seem out of character?
    I thought maybe she did a “find yourself” kind of hike? After which she goes back to Luke. (When they kiss, she wears the same clothes)

      She’s wearing a different shirt in the outdoors scene and the kitchen kissing scene. Both flannel, but different colors.

      …which leads to the question of why Lorelai is suddenly wearing so much flannel!

      I personally think the whole dancers thing, car ride, and party thing is a dream sequence, not a proposal. I think Kirk is actually there, but I think they edited the scene to make it seem like Emily was asking about Kirk, but I think she is asking about a celebrity.

    I don’t think it will start with winter because it will be hard to hide Richard death for that long. I think it’ll begin with Richard death and the funeral seems to be in spring / summer or maybe after that it’ll have a flashfoward and it’ll take place in winter.

    Defintely seems like a proposal. She is wearing the same outfit when Luke is driving them in the truck and then when her and Rory look at each other and there’s a bunch of lights… Then standing in the middle of dancers. Makes sense that Luke would include Rory.

    Is Lorelai wearing the same outfit in the scene where she and rory are riding on the back of Luke’s truck and the scene where the dancings are prancing around her? I think that would be a lovely proposal, and of course Luke would want Rory to be a part of it. And the leaves look like fall, so that would be the final episode.

    Jess wouldn’t own the Stars Hollow Gazette, it says some sort of publishing house on the window though, maybe he is trying to publish another book through that company?

    Anyone noticed that Lorelai’s outfit in the scenes where she and Rory are riding on the back of Luke’s truck, where she is in the middle of the dancers and where she and Rory look at each other and there’s a bunch of lights is the same that she was wearing in that behind in the scenes photo with Scott Patterson, the one that is from the last day of filming? Patterson twited this, if I remember, saying that Lauren should win a Emmy, what makes me wonder that something emotional might have happened in those scenes, or he was referring to her overall performance in the revival. And Patterson wasn’t in Luke’s regular cloths in that photo, no flannel and baseball cap… Maybe he was that way in the truck scene (we can’t see because it’s too dark) and the others with Lorelai with the same outfit? Well… I can’t imagine Luke doing a proposal involving dancers and in front of everybody in town lol, but we all know if he knows that would make Lorelai happy, so it’s possible, why not?

    I have a theory on how Logan’s storyline goes. I know people are assuming that Logan is living in London but if you take a closer look at a freeze frame of Logan from the trailer you see that 1.) it’s sunny outside (London is rarely sunny) 2.) He has a white wood-like terrace, the style of which isn’t really found in London or NYC 3.) There is a blue house with white trim in the background which indicates he is in a residential area. My guess is that Logan lives in California where it would be feasible that he owns a home. After all, Logan was moving to California for a start-up at the end of the series.

    So…assuming he lives in California, my guess is that Finn and Colin are out on the West Coast visiting him (Tanc is listed as appearing in Summer and Fall. This scene occurs in Summer) and mention that they read in some alumni newsletter or something that Richard had died. Logan, still butt hurt from Rory’s rejection, hadn’t wanted to keep up with what was happening with her so he had no knowledge of this. He reads all about Richard’s death (on his Microsoft surface) and sees there is going to be a Yale Alumni event honoring him (Richard was a professor and an alumni). He decides to go back to the East Coast to pay his respects.

    Logan meets up with his Dad, Mitchum, at the alumni event. Makes sense that Mitchum would be there because he was a friend of Richard’s and also a Yale alumni. (This also accounts for the photo of Matt and the actor playing his Dad on Instagram. The Instagram photo indicates it was also shot during “Summer” because they’re posing with Dan Palladino and we know Dan directed/wrote Summer and Amy wrote/directed Fall. This also makes sense as to why they were shooting at the same location as Richard/Emily’s vow renewal ceremony.) Getting back to it, Rory is there at the event and it’s debatable whether or not Logan actually speaks to her but his father notices Rory and reminds Logan he made a mistake letting her go and that Rory was the best thing to happen to him.

    Meanwhile, Rory does notice Logan there and again debatable whether or not they speak and we start “Fall” with a dream sequence where Rory is attending a steampunk themed Life and Death Brigade party with Logan as if they were back in college. (That would account for the scenes being shot in Stars Hollow. After all, dreams aren’t always logical. Plus, it’s totally feasible that you dream of someone you saw recently. ) At the party Logan proposes to Rory and this time she emphatically says “yes”. (This all ties in with Nick Holmes, aka Robert’s comments that the scenes he shot with Matt and Alexis were “beautiful and emotional.”)

    Rory wakes up from the dream stunned and confused that she said yes to Logan’s proposal without hesitation. At the same time Logan is stunned having seen Rory after so long a time and starts to really think about what his father told him. He travels to Stars Hollow to talk to Rory and get closure. (This would tie in with Instagram picture from an extra that shows him and Matt on the Stars Hollow set.) Logan shows up at Rory’s house asking if they can talk. Logan apologies for the selfish ultimatum he gave her and for possibly for avoiding her at the alumni event. He wants to let her know he regrets his actions. Rory meanwhile admits she did love him and did want to marry him but the timing was wrong. Perhaps she also recounts the dream and lamenting she had no roots anywhere and wants to put some down. In the end, they both realize that there is still something there and it is implied that they may meet up again for a date, starting fresh. (This would tie in with many things 1.) Taylor’s interview on the podcast where he says one of them will “have an edge.” Edge meaning perhaps they get together down the road or perhaps not. 2.) Alexis saying each guy will have “closure” in a different way. 3.) Stan Zimmerman’s Instagram comments to Logan/Rory shipper Instagram posts where he states that Matt and Alexis had such chemistry in their scenes but he couldn’t talk about it. )

    Voila, and scene.

        I think the lack of Logan in the trailer is very telling. We are going to see all of his friends and his dad, and he was in all four episodes. Milo worked 6 days total, and that is including the pilot for This is Us, so there isn’t a ton of room for him to be prominent in it. So regardless of what we saw in the trailer we are getting more Logan than Jess, and Logan has pretty much no reason to be in it if he’s not interacting with Rory.

        I think the original commenter has a lot of stuff that can’t even be remotely proved, but I think a few points could be valid.

          Yeah I’m guessing your Team Logan. Whatever makes you feel better.

    Scene of Lorelai alone looking over undeveloped, natural land. Other still of Lorelai kissing Luke and Lorelai appears to be wearing the same clothes as she is when looking at the land. Theory (based on nothing but my imagination) that Richard left Lorelai some land in his will (perhaps family land) and she is considering developing a new hotel? I

    I think it’s Emily in the limo. The actor who plays Caesar said he was happy he got to work with Kelly Bishop and Liza Weil in the revival, but I just can’t see Paris going around in a limo, so my guess is Emily.

    I’m leaning more toward dream sequence that proposal for the car ride, party, and dancers, because it all seems a little over the top, and nothing about it suggests that Luke could be behind it.

    I think the scene with Emily and Kirk is edited to make it look like she doesn’t know who he is, though that still doesn’t explain why he’s there. Could be a dream sequence, but I’d hate to get too crazy with dream theories.

    The town car scene happens takes place on the same day as the Spring Food Festival, so I don’t think it’d be related to a funeral. Could be Logan or Emily, but we get the idea that the girls are busy enjoying the food festival with Luke that day, but maybe the girls took the car back to town after doing something with Emily.

    It’s most likely that Rory is the one working at the Gazette because she is the one sitting at the desk and the by lines in the Stars Hollow Gazette pic from Tanc, but I think maybe the Gazette is closing because it’s super unprofessional (even in small town) for her and Jess to be talking about her personal issues over a glass of hard liquor.

    And the funeral is definitely not taking place within the year they are covering since there is a casket and it’s not winter at all. It’s either going to a be a bit of montage to catch us up, or we’ll be getting a flashback.
