Gilmore Girls Creator Responds to the Final Four Words Controversy
There’s nothing worse then utter disappoint after waiting soooo long for something you think you’re gonna love. That’s why so many folks are peeved over Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Not only can we now admit that Rory is the worst, but those final four words that we’ve waited years to find out have left fans RAGING.
Though series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino had always intended for Rory’s pregnancy to be the big ending, and though Lauren Graham filmed multiple reactions to the news and herself doesn’t feel like this is a conclusion (“[The final four words] do not end the story we are telling as much as they introduce something that was not previously known,” she said in her book, Talking As Fast As I Can, according to HelloGiggles), fans were certainly not thrilled at how the entire sitch played out.
Including the fact that it was pretty much left totally up in the air with no resolution or further story in sight…
Some even have alternatives…
But Amy is sticking by her decision, telling The Hollywood Reporter, “She’s the same age Lorelai was when the show started. It really does feel a little Lion King-y, the whole circle of life.”
