Episode Title: Kill Me Now
After you watch: Things I noted/liked
This is the one where Rory and Richard play golf together, much to the chagrin of Lorelai (mostly because Emily engineered it). It’s also the one where Lorelai plans the twins’ wedding at The Independence Inn.
I wish I had been tracking the maids’ names. Dang. #notetoself
This ep is produced by Jenji Kohan (of Orange Is The New Black and Weeds fame) – she also produced Episode 2 of this Season and a bunch more (as well as producing AND writing the upcoming Episode 7).
Lilac tulle for weddings? Fantastic.
The brides-to-be are wearing their sweaters around their necks in the weirdest way.
I’d love to talk more about Emily’s flower arrangements some day soon…
Rory and Richard really start to get to know each other in this ep. It’s really cute.
There are many man-boobs.
Kirk- MICK shows up again. This time with swans. #attackedbyabandofswans
Rory is SO extra beautiful and sparkly eyed in this episode.
Whenever I see mustard and ketchup on a table I pine for a burger or hotdog. It’s a thing.
Sookie chasing Jackson is really funny.
Miss Patty’s dance moves at the wedding are amazing
Sheer olive (?) cardigan with sequins over strappy little black dress with ruffly hem with pretty coat (I can’t tell what colour it is. The Gilmores need more exterior lighting)
Pinstripe suit with an I Mean Business shirt
Black suit with electric blue tee
Baby blue sweater of fuzz and jeans
Jeans, pink t-shirt that says something like ‘Rosie’ on it, dorky leather jacket
Purple jersey plunging choker dress that Prince’s mum wore in the 70s
Cap sleeve blue lace dress and denim jacket
Beige pants, pale blue shirt, amazing woolly beret
Striped tee and jeans
Red sweater and cargo pants (with striped skivvy)
Burgundy crocheted sweater, Kabbalah bracelet (or not)
Lovely star(fish?) brooch
Lane – no Lane today
Foodie mentions in this episode
Cake (thanks Sarah/Mira)
Cake (thanks Sookie) – chocolate
Blueberries, mushrooms, strawberries, melon, endive, peaches, kiwi, kiwi ice cream
Soup or salad
Burger and fries (or possibly onion rings)
White wine… Coke
