I feel like Rory would much prefer something more simple and low-key which in my mind would be how Jess would propose
Yeah, I think so too.

my own ask that I will re-post here

Anonymous asked: To add on to the last anon, in the Gilmore Guys ep for 6x18 they said that the way she says that she says “I can’t help it. I’m in love with him.” makes it sound like she wishes she wasn’t. I thought that was interesting.

I agree with that interpretation too, tbh. I always got the impression that Rory just hates being with Logan then and still having feelings for him, and this comes from the entire episode, not just her last scene with Jess at Truncheon. It’s why I always find the end of season 6 annoying because Rory feels stuck in a relationship that she doesn’t feel happy in, with someone that she feels like betrayed her. I also feel like the episode juxtaposes Rory’s life with Logan and her possible life with Jess, in how she feels angry and hurt by Logan and still hasn’t forgiven him for sleeping with the bridesmaids, in comparison to feeling a lot better and inspired when she comes to Truncheon to see Jess.

and this is someone’s reply to the post

propernervouslike said: DUDE YES I am rewatching for the millionth time and just hit that episode! She seems to light and happy and inspired when she sees Jess and is so angry and sad and closed off in the other scenes with Logan at this point

There are some great points here. https://safflowerseason.tumblr.com/p...ogan-and-rorys

The chief problem with Logan and Rory's relationship is that they don't understand each other on a fundamental level. There is a lot of love going on between those two, for sure, but their relationship cannot be tenable and satisfying in the long run, as they will never be able to figure out what the other needs. In S6, when Rory is going through that downward spiral, he offers her his support, but never a piece of advice, bc he simply doesn't know what makes Rory click.

Absolutely - Rory and Logan clearly have a lot of love and respect for one another. Their relationship is far from dysfunctional! But Logan tends to be absent when Rory is going through a major emotional upheaval, OR his wealth allows him to give her material things that matter hugely in the moment (ex: car service, a house to write in, etc). These are signs of his care and support for Rory, certainly, and they make her life easier (which is not nothing!), but they don’t help her emotional wellbeing beyond solving immediate logistical problems.
One thing that has always stuck with me is from Vox’s GG coverage (I forget the specific article…maybe the episode-by-episode ranking) where the author noted that because of her dad’s absence in her life, Rory sees abandonment as the ultimate emotional crime a person can commit against her. As a result, Jess is the boy who bears the brunt of her anger and resentment the longest, while she’s much more forgiving with Logan in spite of his cheating and general emotional detachment, and because his absences in their relationship can be explained in socially acceptable ways (he’s the heir to a newspaper conglomerate, etc). It also explains her fallback to Dean, and her idealization of him as this perfectly reliable romantic partner even though they are a total mismatch emotionally and intellectually. (The show’s blindspot re: Dean’s red flags is a complete mystery to me…)

A lot of GG fans like to defend Logan (played by Matt Czuchry), Rory’s university boyfriend, but really, what are his redeeming qualities? He calls Rory weird pet names like “Ace” and “Pigeon”, like she’s a pet that he’s temporarily fond of. He claims to want to escape the pressures of his wealthy family’s legacy (his father is a powerful newspaper magnate) but still enjoys the perks that come with being ludicrously rich. He’s a playboy who is supposedly “tamed” by Rory, but who – when they go on a relationship break – promptly sleeps with an entire bridal party, then gaslights Rory into thinking it’s no big deal. When he fails at a work venture and ends up getting sued, he runs off to Las Vegas with his mates while his father’s company cleans up the mess.

His and Rory’s relationship is also full of petty bickering and childish antics that lead to them both getting arrested after Rory persuades him to steal a boat. When Rory (sensibly) tells Logan she’s too young to get married but wants to be with him, he ends things, only to later start sleeping with her when he’s engaged to another woman. Basically, they were a terrible influence on each other – the epitome of a toxic relationship.

Indeed!
