Team Logan is in for a blow. "Gilmore Girls" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has revealed why Rory dated her college boyfriend, Logan, and the reason is not necessarily heartwarming; instead, it's downright Freudian.

"We wanted Rory to date her father," Sherman-Palladino told Entertainment Weekly of her and executive producer Daniel Palladino's reasoning. "Every girl has a father issue, and Logan was Christopher."

There certainly are similarities. Both fictional men came from privileged backgrounds and couldn't always be counted on. Sherman-Palladino grants that Logan (Matt Czuchry) was "charming" and "smart," but when push came to shove, he was "not quite the dependable soul" that Rory (Alexis Bledel) needed.

Interestingly, it sounds like Logan could have changed over the years. The creator amended her statement a bit, adding, "Or, at that time, was not the great dependable soul." Perhaps we'll see a new and improved Logan when he pops up in the revival, "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life," to potentially vie for Rory's heart.

It might not all be bad news, Team Logan.
