This is the grand finale — except there’s nothing grand about it, because it’s been weeks, and I’m still sitting here, gaping at the sheer amount of fuckery that’s going on.
Rory is… back in Stars Hollow, in spite of her fervent denials. Feeling like a failure and unable to think her way out of that corner under her own steam, she moves back in with her mother and Luke.
Summer is easily the weakest out of the four episodes, so this review will be relatively brief, at least compared to the one about the somewhat meatier Spring.
It’s spring in Stars Hollow, London, and New York, and everyone’s gone just a little bit nutty. You know, the way Sookie used to get before figuring out she was pregnant, except no-one’s pregnant yet and Sookie’s still not back from… wherever she is up North.
Ten years after the Season 7 finale, we are back in Stars Hollow, our little New England town that seemed to get nuttier and yet more endearing with every festival and tradition-fuelled shenanigans. Hell, I’ve even missed Taylor — but only a little bit. The Netflix revival was a highly anticipated event, with the enduring fanbase to boost it to the top of the ratings stats for a single-day release. All four episodes went live on Nov 25, worldwide, and so the Internet has been a-buzz with what it all means and what’s going to happen next (if indeed anything is going to happen).
