Perennially one of the WB’s highest-rated series, Gilmore Girls hit its creative high point to date with its stellar fifth season, which started out with young Rory (Alexis Bledel) feeling the fallout of doing something terribly non-Rory-like: sleeping with Dean (Jared Padalecki), her married ex-boyfriend. Rory’s indulgence in adultery put, for the first time, a serious, sharp wedge in her relationship with her mother, Lorelai (Lauren Graham), who was both shocked by her daughter’s behavior and worried Rory would repeat the mistakes Lorelai made at her age.
But while Rory jetted off to Europe with her grandmother (Kelly Bishop) for the summer, Lorelai finally got her relationship with diner owner Luke (Scott Patterson) into a serious groove, starting with an official (and incredibly sweet) first date and others that involved, if you can believe it, a Swedish Pippi Longstocking movie. And as Lorelai navigated romantic terrain in Stars Hollow (terrain that of course did not run smooth), Rory found life more complex in her second year at Yale, as her relationship with Dean became increasingly strained.
Not only that, she found her attention turned towards preppy Logan (Matt Czurchy), a spoiled rich kid who represented everything Rory couldn’t stand–and was of course immediately attracted to. Little did Rory know that Logan’s entrance into her life, and her interaction with his family, would be the catalyst for one of the most momentous decisions she would ever make.
With this season of Gilmore Girls, creative forces Amy Sherman-Palladino, and Daniel Palladino finally found a way to make the Stars Hollow-Yale dichotomy work perfectly, as each location still stood alone but had decided repercussions on the other. Gone were freshman-year anxieties for Rory and in their place were more adult romantic concerns as well as a class consciousness that, for the first serious time, found Rory on the side of the haves and not the have-nots.
While the Rory-Dean drama played itself out nicely and succinctly, it was the devilish Logan who lit a fire underneath this Gilmore girl; the episode “You Jump, I Jump, Jack” was a lovely twist on the ’30s romantic comedies that found rich folk at play with words and deeds. Bledel started to fully blossom as Rory grew from ingénue to leading lady, and she was matched peerlessly by Graham, whose passion, anger, stubbornness, and ravishing beauty all came to a head in “Wedding Bell Blues,” which featured her two greatest nemeses: her mother and Rory’s dad, Christopher (David Sutcliffe).
The show’s trademark eccentricities were all in place–including a Pulp Fiction party and an elementary school production of Fiddler on the Roof, among other things–but it mined the best drama of its run with the season’s last four episodes, which found Rory’s confidence shaken to the core. To give any of the proceedings away would spoil the drama, but suffice it to say you will be glued to the TV for this season’s final four hours; it’s Gilmore Girls at its phenomenal best.
