Team Jess. Team Dean. Team Logan. It’s been the BIGGEST theme of the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life revival, the point of the greatest divergence among fans. Even if Amy Sherman-Palladino doesn’t like it (and for valid reasons). Now the cast of Gilmore Girls chimes in with their own opinions, and in so doing reveal a few key scenes we’ve not seen previewed yet.

UPDATE: In an interview with EW, Jared, Milo & Matt all chime in further. Jared starts:
“I think he always felt like she was out of his league,” Jared Padalecki tells EW, describing how Dean viewed Rory. “She was smart and funny and quick and everybody loved her, but Dean felt like, ‘I can treat her right.’ He always felt like, ‘I wish I was good enough,’ so he tried to do things that helped convince himself that maybe he was good enough for her.
“You think back to your first love and it really overtakes you, and I think [Dean] just never really got past that point,” Padalecki says. “But we see a more mature, 10-years-older Dean in the new Netflix series, and I was really happy with the man he turned out to be.”
And Milo chimes in on Jess:
“And as much as Jess was stimulated by Rory’s mind, Rory was stimulated by a guy who didn’t play by the rules — and yet he still had the intelligence.”
And finally Matt chimes in on an evasive answer for Logan:
“Rory didn’t need anything from him,” Matt Czuchry says. “Rory was her own woman, and I think that’s what drew him in and made Logan want to give her everything.”
“In the original series, I was happy that Rory said no to Logan because I feel like, at that particular time, it wasn’t right for Rory to get married to anybody, and it shows her strength and her independence, which has always been I think a very powerful theme of the show,” Czuchry says. “I love that ending for the original series.”
And that ending for these 4 characters? Matt only says it’s “very very special.”
