Amy Sherman-Palladino Says Not to Skip to Final Four Words

Share

It is well-known that Amy Sherman-Palladino had intended to end the original Gilmore Girls series with the mythical “final four words”, but never got the chance.  Now, with the revival series, she does end the very last episode as intended.

In an IndieWire article, Alexis Bledel seemingly confirmed that she is at least in the scene where the four words are uttered:

“I felt a lot of pressure to try to get it right, to make it awesome. More than anything I was trying to be really focused and really present, just to make sure that whatever I did in the scene felt rooted in my experience of the character and I was communicating something that felt real to me.”

Given the fact that Netflix will put all four of the new episodes out at once, Amy hopes that fans will not skip to the end just to find out the big secret, saying:

“…it’s going to mean a lot less if you just flip to the last page. That being said, what can I do? I would hope that people would want to take the whole trip. It’s a fun trip. It’s worth it. There’s peanuts.”

But are these words really “final”?  Or can Gilmore Girls continue?  Amy says:

“These four were not set up to be anything other than what they are. Again, in the world of family, in the world of life, it’s never-ending.”

    Amy Sherman-Palladino, aka Queen of evasive answers. Seriously hahaha
    But I agree with her. Jumping to the end it’s not gonna be as good as watching the whole thing to get to them.

    Its going to be interesting to see where they go with this. Rory now around her mother’s age when the series began will be a pretty cool. I’m rewatching the series before watching the new episodes. Comparing then and now will be fun.
