"Gilmore Girls" finally got Amy Sherman-Palladino's end to the series, but it seems safe to say that it wasn't the conclusion anyone expected.
*Warning: If you haven't watched all four episodes of "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the LIfe," there are spoilers ahead.*
Although fans have spent years squabbling over whether Rory (Alexis Bledel) should be with Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), Logan (Matt Czuchry), or Dean (Jared Padalecki), she didn't end up attached to any of her long-time love interests. Still, that hasn't ended speculation. Team Jess has been emboldened by possible parallels between their favorite guy and his uncle Luke (Scott Patterson).
Sherman-Palladino recently compared Logan to Rory's father, raising hope that Jess, in turn, had a mirror. Since we got to see Luke land his own Gilmore girl, fans are making the case that Jess is the right guy for Rory, and Logan just the likely father of Rory's unborn child.
When asked about the theory by Entertainment Weekly at a recent event, actor Milo Ventimiglia gave his take on the Luke comparisons.
"I think it would be good for Jess to be like Luke because Luke is a good guy," he told the publication. "He's a little stubborn with the diner, with the way that he likes things, but who he is as a man is a very good man."
While that unfortunately doesn't address what the future could hold for Jess and Rory, whether in a continuation of the Netflix series or hypothetically, he does make a good point: Jess grew into a good man over the years. We saw him offer support and advice to Rory when she needed it, as opposed to Logan, who provided fun and an escape -- potentially with some massively life-changing consequences.
We'll keep hoping for more answers, but who knows when -- if ever -- they'll come.
