There鈥檚 no doubt those behind the Gilmore Girls are masters at building up the excitement. Though we鈥檙e still months away from the return to Stars Hollow, there have been a steady stream of teases making us more giddy by the moment. But while we were busy wondering if Rory鈥檚 found love or if Lorelai is pregnant (eee!), the folks behind the scenes have been getting ready to throw us for a loop. With a new hint being revealed, there鈥檚 reason to believe that Max Medina is coming back to Gilmore Girls.

And if I don鈥檛 follow the tenets of those lessons, I鈥檓 not the man I thought I was. The man I want to be.鈥
