Iscahmckrae is one of the most talented and most genuinely kind-hearted persons I have ever known and everyone should follow her???
I kinda really wish Luke and Lorelai hadn’t just made up like just quietly go back to normal after the car accident fight, even if the rift went on for several episodes (into the next season, I think it was the longest fight they had!) and he froze her out at first, he still just forgave her in the end for it … because of her breakdown about Christopher (and I don’t mean he shouldn’t have but …) I mean … it says something about their relationship, I don’t know if it’s good. I don’t know what she wrote in her note but I doubt it was anything apologizing for what she did specifically since Luke stayed mad at her for so long. He had to have a reason to. In end it was just, can’t stay mad at someone that important to you forever … which is how life goes sometimes, so it’s okay
But GOD I still just wish Lorelai had -really- been made to apologize for the way she talked to Luke about his nephew. I mean, good god, if anyone ever talked to Lorelai that way about Rory there would be hell to pay. That just shouldn’t be okay. Even if Lorelai was right about Jess (she wasn’t) it is so out of line for her to talk about him to Luke that way, to basically insist that Luke shouldn’t be taking care of his own nephew because he isn’t worth it.
And she actually stormed up into HIS APARTMENT to YELL AT HIS NEPHEW, without his permission, without telling him why she was mad! That is SO many degrees of NOT OKAY. That is so many boundaries you just don’t cross! You are not his parent, you are not his legal guardian! You have absolutely no rights to do that! Especially in front of his legal guardian, pushing past him to go yell at his kid, in his home!!
If Jess had been home and Lorelai had started berating him, don’t even think about what Luke would have done, how much madder he would have been …
And that was just the start, not to mention everything else she said … “that little punk nephew of yours” , “you told him to come, you let him stay” , “everybody hated him!” , “you wouldn’t send him home” , “why didn’t you make him leave!”
Where do you get off, woman. Just where … it is all so not okay. Again, if anyone spoke to her about Rory that way, my god …
So, I’ve mentioned before how the first time I saw “Last Weeks Fights, This Weeks Tights”, I hadn’t seen the episode before and thought that the self help book was just Jess’ and that Luke was just yelling at Lorelai about her treatment of Jess …
And I REALLY wish something like that had actually happened on the show. I mean, Lorelai still thought he was and apologized afterwards so it kinda counts, but she always concedes to Luke supporting Jess a little sarcastically and I always want to slap her.
Because even if she is ever right, even if her feelings are validated, it is 500 different ways of disrespectful to talk that way to Jess’ legal guardian, to insult and degrade his nephew in front of him, to not recognize that Jess is someone Luke loves as much as she loves Rory and she should RESPECT THAT when in front of him, especially if she supposedly cares about Luke.
The only good thing is the longest Luke ever stayed made at Lorelai pre-relationship was over her treatment of Jess and his relationship with Jess … So I am vindicated.
I kinda wanna live in New York but i also wanna live in Stars Hollow ya feel me
geminikitkat said: Which episode did you get wrong?
I forgot Welcome to the Dollhouse, ‘S Wonderful, ‘S Marvelous and The Great Stink.
So I just went on a 4.5 hour plane ride and to entertain myself I decided to write all the episodes of Gilmore Girls by name in chronological order split in seasons from memory and I got them all except 3 that for some reason I couldn’t remember.
I can’t decide if this is awesome or really sad.

For me, Jess is the personification of CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.
Yes, he is an ass, but when you consider he is a teenager that is basically unwanted by his mother at the time and forced to move to a town that doesn’t even try to understand him, he acts like a normal teenager. Seriously.
Then you see his friendship with Rory which is basically the only thing that makes his time in Stars Hollow enjoyable. Rory and Jess had a genuine friendship which, while there was sexual tension, Jess never crossed that friend/something more line. Rory did. Ever after she kissed him, he did not do anything until she was broken up with Dean AND he had broken up with Shane.
What I loved was that when Jess and Rory were a couple, he didn’t change! What I mean by this is Jess was still Jess. I think that’s important because it’s so easy for the “bad boy” to get with a “good girl” and he becomes that “good guy”. But Jess did not become a Star Hollow-lover or enjoy the town craziness just because he was with Rory. He tolerated the things she enjoyed because they were together, but it didn’t mean he liked it.
Jess made bad decisions, especially the end of season three when he left. Jess was going through a lot. Not graduating, his dad coming to town, and still having to live in a town where everyone hates him. Jess can’t figure out how to talk to Rory because he’s never had anyone to talk about his problems with so he doesn’t know how to talk to her.When Jess came back and tells Rory they should run away together, it wasn’t the right time for either of them. But he had been reading those self-help books and all he could think was “Now! Before I lose her!” But it wasn’t a good time for either of them.
AND THE BEST CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT (at least on GG) AWARD GOES TO:
Jess Mariano, novelist. Jess Mariano, business-owner. Jess Mariano, grown ass man. When Jess comes back in Season 6, he has grown, matured, and CHANGED. He’s not that smart ass kid with a huge chip on his shoulder that hated everyone and everything anymore. Jess grew up. He wrote a book. He wrote a book! He has a steady job.
Jess is the reason Rory went back to Yale. Jess took one look at her standing outside of her grandparents house and could tell this was not the Rory he knew. This was not the same girl who had pushed and pushed him to do better at everything in his life, inspiring him to write The Subsect. The best part of Jess and Rory’s relationship whether it be friendship or dating, was they always called each other on their bullshit. That’s exactly what he did. He called her on her bullshit and when she tried to make it about Logan, he completely shut that shit down. He told her, “screw him, what’s going on with you?!” He hadn’t seen this girl in years but he knew what she had become wasn’t who she was. He could tell she wasn’t happy. There was nothing to gain for him. There wasn’t any sort of sexual tension in that episode. It was a friend helping a friend.
HE FUCKING THANKS LUKE! He thanks him and pays him back. But that check wasn’t about giving Luke his money back, it was about showing him what that money had help him to become. It was important to Jess’ pride that he pay Luke back, but it was also him thanking him for never giving up on him, even when Jess felt like everyone had, even when Luke told him he had. He never did.
This kid who after everything he had been through, could have easily fucked his life up, but worked his ass off to make himself better. He did not do this for anyone but himself. It’s not as if he comes back and says, “Here’s the new me. Now will you love me?” No. Jess changed himself, for himself. He made himself a better person to be a better person.
Do I understand how some people might not like Jess? Yes. But I know exactly why I love Jess Mariano and it has nothing to do with his and Rory’s relationship and everything to do with Jess Mariano. My love is never ending.
"It’s not as if he comes back and says, “Here’s the new me. Now will you love me?” No. Jess changed himself, for himself. He made himself a better person to be a better person."
I think I may actually cry this was too beautiful and accurate to handle
