So, "Gilmore Girls" did that.
And by "that," I mean they ended the Netflix revival — which was supposed to provide closure, dammit — on this huge, open-ended bombshell: Rory is pregnant.
I'd always assumed the famous "last four words" would be, well, final.
But now that fans are left with so many unanswered questions (Who's the father? How will Rory raise her child? Where will they live?), we're all clamoring for even more episodes.
Before that ending I never thought there would be anything after this revival, but now I'm not so sure.
And while there hasn't been anything close to an official promise of more "Gilmore Girls," there have been a few hints, including this recent quote from Matt Czuchry.
In a Facebook Live interview on the official "Gilmore Girls" page, the actor refused to confirm whether his character, Logan, was really the father of Rory's child.
A fan asked Czuchry,
What do you think Logan's reaction would be to the last four words?
You know, that's a little bit of a question that I can't really go into. Those four words obviously impact someone, and it was left open. So I'll leave that to Amy and Dan [Palladino] to say who was the father of that child. I'll leave it to Amy and Dan to answer that question.
And why would he have been told to keep his mouth shut unless there was at least a slight possibility that these questions would be answered in a sequel series?
I'm just saying, I think we can assume the creators are at least considering it.
Though, I think it's worth noting this baby is almost definitely Logan's.
Yes, Rory did sleep with that Wookiee, but that was in the "Spring" episode, meaning she would be nearly six months pregnant by the time she told her mom in "Fall." Wouldn't she be showing by then?
Of course, Amy Sherman-Palladino addressed the question of a sequel directly in her interview with The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week, where she said,
We really had a very specific journey in our minds and we fulfilled the journey. So to us, this is the piece that we wanted to do. And the whole thought about, 'Is there more, is there more, is there more?' — this has to go out into the universe now. We've got to put this to bed. And then whatever happens, happens.
So, my theory from these two quotes is a sequel won't be happening any time soon-soon, but it's not totally out of the question.
We might get that #TeamJess vindication yet, you guys. We just might be 50-year-olds when it happens.
