"Gilmore Girls" fans just can't stop talking about Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life," and now the streaming service itself is getting in on the conversation -- and perhaps hinting that there's more "Gilmore" ahead for viewers.
That's what many Twitter users thought when the official Netflix account posted on the social media site on Thursday, sharing a doctored photo referencing (SPOILER ALERT) the mysterious identity of Rory's (Alexis Bledel) baby daddy. "A Year in the Life" ended with "Gilmore" creator Amy Sherman-Palladino's famous "final four words," which revealed that the youngest Gilmore girl was pregnant.

The tweet in question is a reference to April's (Vanessa Marano) season six search for her biological father through a DNA test conducted for a school science fair, leading her to Luke (Scott Patterson). While we're not thrilled with Netflix reminding us of one of the worst plotlines in "Gilmore" history, it's a pretty funny gag, since many fans have been arguing about the identity of Rory's baby's father since the revival wrapped.
To us, the only logical choice is Logan (Matt Czruchry), and he's represented here alongside the other two men Rory slept with in the revival: Paul, the bland boyfriend that Rory just won't break up with for whatever reason; and the mysterious Wookiee guy, who Rory hooked up with while reporting a story for GQ. But what really caught fans' attention was the caption the Netflix account chose to use with the photo: "Where's an eighth grade science fair when you need one?"
That question led followers to speculate Netflix was teasing another batch of new "Gilmore" episodes, which centers around identifying Rory's baby daddy. (Or at the very least, introduces us to the newest little Gilmore girl or guy.) Some fans were convinced that this was a sign; others remained more skeptical. (We're in the latter camp -- this seems more like a silly social media post than any sort of clue about the future of "Gilmore.")
Wherever you stand, we can all agree that "A Year in the Life" gave us a lot to talk about. Whether or not there's more is up to ASP and the folks at Netflix, and we may have to wait a while before we get a definitive answer about that.
