I thought the general concept of the surrogate storyline was a good idea, like it made sense for them to do it that way if they were going to but it was never really resolved. They did both want kids (unless Luke really changed him mind on it) but I'm annoyed that they weren't just able to have a real conversation about it. I still feel like it's what they both wanted () - I know children aren't necessary for all couples but it's still something I wanted to see happen. Not at this time per say, but within the previous 9 years. I can't believe it never came up again until now.

Lorelai dressing Paul Anka up as Luke must have been the cutest thing I have every seen in my life. I literally screamed.

Paul was a pointless character (that was his name, right? )

I don't like that we got to see Mr. Kim. I'm not a fan of shows ruining longstanding jokes. Same way I'd feel if they ever showed us Kirk's mother. You just can't do that.

I think Emily/Lorelai's fight was well done but they've definitely gone further in the past. It wasn't up to par. Someone said it earlier and I agree.

Plus there was no point for him being there, plus we never really knew where he was either.. So all in all..

I liked that Emily was hurt by the idea that she couldn't have a simple fun memory of Richard..

How far would you have liked them to go back then in the past?

I was able to think of things (Still not happy they made Lorelai super slu-y in that story for a 15 year old girl)

I didn't mean past like a time frame. I just meant in the previous seasons their fights seemed worse or more extreme.

No but the fact that they watched 2 movies together was cute!

What things could you think of?
I remember his visit to SH, the buying stuff for his office together Him being a proud grandpa to her daughter


The fights were more 'screaming' in the past, but maybe Emily didn't have the power for that? It was her husband's funeral.

When Emily tried to set Lorelai up with that really weird guy and so she decided to sneak out the window when Richard came in and she begged him not to make her go back in there and he yelled down to Emily "she's not up here," and Lorelai was all "Thank you daddy."

I actually love that scene.

That's true. But that's how they showed their passion, y'know?

Yeah true but I still liked the scene, it very much showed the hurt on both sides

What did you guys think of the opening sequence?

It was sweet. You could tell it's been a while since they've last seen one another (and we've seen one another). Starting off with all the voices already killed me and that was before we officially got the opening scene

Yeah I liked the start with all those famous quotes and scenes! Loved that!

I remember that during the above scene they said 'It feels like it's been years' and I was like 'i know!'

I did wonder during the start of spring, that I was like 'Opening credits' where are they? Where is 'Where you lead?' haha.. Didn't have that at the start of this one because of the quotes

It still felt weird to me not to have Where You Lead at the beginning of each and that score they play during the ending credits every episode. This was such unfamiliar territory. I did wonder how they were going to throw in the theme song.

Right after Fall ends they play it when the closing credits come up.
