The season of Luke and Lorelai,
This review is from: Gilmore Girls: Season 5 (Digipack) (DVD)
The fifth season of Gilmore Girls might as well be named the Luke-Lorelai season, because basically that's what it was. From their first date, to thier breaking up, to Lorelai popping the question, it is obvious to me that they belong together. The break-up showed that. Luke was miserable without her, trying to find excuses to be near her, and Lorelai couldn't sit up! The whole point of the short break-up was to show that they belong together. It would be a major dissapointment to me if Luke and Lorelai didn't end the series together. After the great Luke-Lorelai romance, where could they go? Bring back Christopher? I don't think so.
On to Rory... seasons 1-3 were basically about Lorelai and Rory. Thier relationship, and being best friends. When Rory went off to college, it was hard for them to stay as close. Despite a few exceptions(Rory visiting Lorelai in bed after Luke breaks up with her) there were few great Lorelai-Rory moments this season. This makes sense, because Rory is off to college, so some seperation is inevitable. Rory... has changed, and needless to say that has made many Rory fans unhappy. However, I think change is inevitable, especially when going off to college. And you can't blame it all on Logan. Although I don't nesesarrilly condone Rory's actions, I think her changes are more realistic than if should would have stayed exactly the same from ages 16-20.
I liked Logan. I have to say that he was better than Dean, and way better the Jess(the jerk). Logan treats her right, so what he likes to have some fun? What has he really done to Rory or while he was with Rory that was all that bad? He stood up to his family when they attacked her at the dinner. Rory dragged him to steal the yacht, not the other way around. Rory needs to be blamed for her own actions, not Logan.
All that being said, I really hope that they can repair the Lorelai-Rory relationship in season six, and I am pleading with the producers, PLEASE sign Scott Patterson for season 7!
Overall, great season, with more great stuff to come!
