The second-biggest decision of the year — we suppose the presidential election is bigger — is finding out who Rory (Alexis Bledel) ends up with in the Gilmore Girls revival. Even though it is more realistic that Rory would ditch all of her high school and college sweethearts and find someone new, we don’t need that much realism on a TV show — we just want to know if it’s Team Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), Team Logan (Matt Czuchry) or Team Dean (Jared Padalecki).
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life‘s recently released Netflix series trailer gives us a glimpse at all three of Rory’s former flames, but due to one telling scene of dialogue, the internet is convinced that Rory picks Jess in the end.
In the scene, Rory and the erudite bad boy sip whiskey at what looks to be a newsroom desk. She’s very distraught, exclaiming, “I’m feeling very lost these days. I have no job. I have no credit. I have no underwear!” (That last one was a joke, her expression suggests, but who jokes about underwear with an ex?)
“I could’ve been a contender,” she says with a sigh. “You’re still a contender,” Jess encourages, and the smiles exchanged could light up all of Stars Hollow. Although this just proves that Rory and Jess are talking and not that they’re living happily ever after, it seems telling that the trailer would highlight one couple over the other two. (Logan and Dean both appear briefly in the footage, but neither speaks.)
It could be a red herring and Rory could even be out of a job while Jess holds her dream role at a newspaper or publishing house, but we’ll have to wait until November 25 to find out.
Check out tweets from fans below and see if they convince you that Rory and Jess are the endgame.
