Prepare for some new blood in Stars Hollow! As the Gilmore Girls revival moves along in its negotiations with Netflix, TVLine has been teasing some spoiler-ific new plot details.
On Thursday, December 17, the site posted one particularly juicy tidbit during its “Ask Ausiello” spoiler roundup. In response to a fan who asked for more details on the highly anticipated reboot, Michael Ausiello wrote: “What would you say if I told you that one of the main four characters (i.e. Lorelai, Rory, Emily or Luke) will be getting a new love interest?”
That’s right: One of the four core leads will be falling in love all over again. Let’s hope that it’s Rory (Alexis Bledel), so we can put the Dean, Jess and Logan debates to rest once and for all.
It seems like the only satisfactory solution given that fans might seriously revolt if Emily Gilmore (Kelly Bishop) were to open her heart again so soon after the loss of Richard (the late Edward Herrmann, who will inevitably be written off the show).
The same goes for Luke (Scott Patterson) and Lorelai (Lauren Graham) not finally getting together for good, though perhaps the pair could be seeing other people at the start of the revival only to fall back into each other’s arms.
