Yeah, if you just ignore Christopher, it's a really nice episode.

I can't enjoy all of the scenes, not even the Lorelai and Rory scenes, that feels so wrong and different and the GiGi being there doesn't help. I love the character reference though, that was the real Christmas present.

Even as a spoiled little brat I didn't like GiGi who painted Lorelai's floor Since then I haven't been able to associate anything good with her. The actress is super cute, but I also have to admit that I don't like GiGi because she is Christopher's daughter and I can't stand him. And Lorelai with GiGi, that doesn't fit.

Gigi is an annoying kid, but I like to think once she got older and realised what a crap dad Chris is, she made the decision to go live in Paris with her mother, and that's where she appears to be in the revival. Literally choosing to live in a different continent than to live with her dad lol. Chris is just that terrible.

I mean yeah I think everyone disliked her in that episode in season 6 but I came to like her more in season 7 because she seemed to become more well adjusted

@all

I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I always had the feeling that Lorelai seemed strange with her - when she went to Paris and she talked to GiGi in front of the door, it seemed so wrong... Maybe that borrows from the whole Chris thing, I find her so unbearable, but to see this kid with Lorelai is so strange. I just like to see her with Rory, but even with April I loved to see her. April wasn't forced on her like that and she was Luke's child... It might sound strange, but I don't get warm with GiGi.

Does it make sense?

It totally makes sense. Gigi being around represents Chris and Lorelai being together, living together and making this attempt at a life together and I hate everything about that relationship. It was all so fake and awkward.

I also hate when Lorelai is with Luke and she told Chris that she would help him look after and fix things with Gigi. Uh, no Lorelai. Gigi isn't your problem, Chris has absolutely no need to be in your life unless it's something involving Rory. Let Chris fix his own problems and stop codling him. He's a terrible father, don't make him feel better about that. Let him feel guilty and call him out.

okay yeah I agree it felt awkward but I’m not going to hate on a kid

she didn’t do anything wrong after Lorelai married Christopher

I do agree about the babysitting though

Jessy - I’m glad you like April

she’s unfairly hated and I like her as a character

It's not that I say I hate GiGi, precisely because she's a kid I can't say that, but I have an aversion to her and that never stops.

I like April and don't understand the hatred. April is a cool, easy-going, very funny girl who has a right to her father and she wasn't to blame for the breakup of LL, that was Luke's fault because he pushed Lorelai away because of April. April liked Lorelai and has never felt these problems Luke saw, April was totally open to Lorelai. But we also know that Luke only used April as a reason because he had unspoken fears.


@onebreath

It's good that someone understands me.

I absolutely agree with you when it comes to babysitting and where she goes to his home to help him with GiGi. It's not her problem, Chris has to finally learn to grow up and Lorelai has to stop trying to save him all the time.

I guess for me personally I just liked her more in season 7 but that’s okay everyone feels differently

Great points made about April. I don’t get the hate either.

I adore April. Plus, it's the opposite effect April has on me compared to Gigi. I can't ever dislike April because she is Luke's daughter. But Gigi being Christopher's daughter, is what gives me this aversion to her. Rory is a different story, because I really only see her as Lorelai's daughter, since Christopher is a no good deadbeat dad.

I guess personally I just see her more as Rory’s half-sister than like Christopher’s daughter

can separate it to a certain degree

but that’s me

I don’t dislike her because she’s Christopher’s daughter

just disliked her in that episode in season 6 because of her behavior
