Here we are at the final installment of the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life bonus series and it’s… Autumn. You may recall that Lorelai announced her completely uncharacteristic march into the wilderness at the end of last episode, and Rory’s decision to air her mother’s dirty laundry has put the two of them at odds. The beginning of this episode finds Lorelai about to undertake her trek into the unknown, while Rory TRIPS BALLS with the Life and Death Brigade. This episode is insane. It is poorly constructed, poorly paced, and ill-conceived, but it does have some genuinely entertaining moments, as well as the only satisfying payoff for a character in the series, as we get to see Emily achieve some measure of contentedness, which is nice. Meanwhile your hosts have an hour and 45 minutes to go off the rails rambling about whatever inanities pop into our busy little brains. And believe me, there are inanities aplenty. Please enjoy our 4th and final Wallow in Stars Hollow. Thanks for hanging in there with us.
