‘Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life’ : 3 Storylines Fans Want To See Resolved in a Second Revival
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life didn’t really hit with fans. The revival felt disconnected and uninspired when compared to the original series. Still, loyal Gilmore Girls watchers would happily welcome a second revival, and it’s apparently, always a possibility. At the very least, it is not entirely out of the question. If a second revival does eventually happen, there are three storylines we would like to see resolved.
Did the Dragonfly Inn’s renovations reinvigorate the business?
When fans left Lorelai Gilmore, she was set on expanding the Dragonfly Inn, partially to keep Michel and partly to find her passion for the business again. Fans didn’t get to see the resolution of that storyline. A second revival, however, feels like the perfect time to do just that.
Reddit users note that Emily Gilmore working with Michel on the expansion could be truly inspired. The few scenes the two appeared in together during the show’s original run were fantastic. Finally, even as a silent investor, Emily’s involvement in any expansion plan could be an interesting way to reimagine the tension between the forever dueling mother-daughter duo.
Will Logan leave his family’s plan to make things right with Rory?
In season 7, fans watched as Logan Huntzberger branched out on his own and walked away from the Huntzberger fortune. When the revival rolled around, Logan had regressed. He was living in London, engaged to someone his family found suitable, and working for the family business. Logan’s regression was due to the fact the showrunner, Amy Sherman-Palladino, disregarded the show’s final season.
Since it’s largely believed that Logan is the father of Rory’s baby, it would be nice to see some of his progression from season 7 return. Logan and Rory’s bond, like it or not, was special. While he was a bit wild when Rory met him, it was clear he did care for her deeply. Seeing Logan choose Rory and his child over his family’s fortune would be refreshing. It would also fit in nicely with the way the original series ended.
How is Emily’s life in Nantucket working out for her?
Emily’s storyline in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life was the most emotional and the most satisfying for fans. Dealing with the fall out of Richard Gilmore’s death found Emily a lot softer, a lot more vulnerable, and a lot more real. When viewers left her at the end of the revival, she lived on Nantucket in a much more casual way.
Seeing Emily come into her own, far away from high society’s pretentiousness, was refreshing in the revival. The only complaint fans have is that they didn’t get to see more of it. Watching Emily live a new life and getting to see her bond with Rory’s child would be a great way to pay homage not only to her character but to Richard’s as well.
