Gilmore Girls “Face-Off” – Season 3 Episode 15

I have to admit, after watching this episode I’m still not sure what the title means. I didn’t like how Jess treated Rory, but I did like Lorelai’s advice to Rory on how to handle him not calling. I finally saw how Lindsey got introduced into the story. Rory is so sweet telling Dean all about how Lindsey’s a good girl. I did notice though how Dean is still sweet to Rory and is happy to see her watching him play hockey. Speaking of sweet, I loved how Dave took his fifteen minute break checking up on Lane and her fake date. Lane was so cute thinking she had power over a guy, making him jealous.

Even though I haven’t been put in Rory’s position yet, I think I can relate to her not getting a call from Jess and cleaning up her computer. It just reminds me that this show is about a homebody girl and actually makes the homebody girl look cute. I think there’s nothing wrong with how Rory is portrayed. (Except for the having sex before marriage thing, but that’s a whole another thing.) Oh yeah! It was funny when the rest of Lane’s band was trying to figure out the Christian hymns.

Emily’s mother-in-law was ridiculous. End of story.

Gilmore Girls “Swan Song” – Season 3 Episode 14

I haven’t seen this one either. I have a feeling there are a few more episodes this season I haven’t seen. I didn’t like how Rory automatically assumed Jess got into a fight with Dean, but it was almost predictable she would do that. I just think it’s hilarious he got a black eye from a swan and ends up taking Luke to the “scene of the crime.” What really gets to me about all of this is how he doesn’t tell Rory the truth. He makes up some story about getting hit in the eye by a football!

It even kind of makes sense how Jess could make Rory think about “it.” It’s always the bad boy types isn’t it? I guess Dean just doesn’t have that vibe even though he’s a good guy and all.

I’m amazed at how calm Emily is during the whole dinner with Jess. Of course the truth comes out once she’s on the phone with Lorelai, but still.

Oh, Luke’s 10 minute system cracked me up. And then when Lorelai bursted his bubble, that was the best, haha!

Gilmore Girls “Dear Emily and Richard” – Season 3 Episode 13

I definitely have never seen this episode. It made me sad and excited at the same time to be able to see a part of Lorelai’s past and how Rory came to be. I liked the actors that played Chris and Lorelai when they were teenagers. I liked Emily’s hair when she was younger. Everyone looked so pretty back then.

I was sad because I could see Lorelai reflecting on the past and feeling the pain of Chris being there for Sherrie in a way he wasn’t for Lorelai. Now I’ve never been in the same situation and now that I’m out of my teen years forever, I’m never going to be, but I couldn’t believe how Chris’s parents handled the news that Lorelai was pregnant.

Dean and Jess’ interaction was a little funny, but not that entertaining this time. I can’t believe Jess was going to “go away for an hour” when Luke comes home from his date with the lawyer. xD I can’t believe it.

Rory is a very good girl, but I did think it was ridiculous how much Sherrie was asking her to do. I now want to see some more black and white memories and what they may reveal.

Gilmore Girls “Lorelai Out of Water” – Season 3 Episode 12

I did not expect this episode to be about what it was about, but as soon as Lorelai started learning how to fish, I put the connection together with the title. She was quite the funny with Luke and I liked how he joked about her needing to take them out to the bar treating them to a couple of bears. Oh that was good! xD

I felt bad for Kim when she got all her hopes up that she would get to go to prom with Dave, but then her mom picked out a different guy and said Dave wasn’t Korean. 😦

I think this episode was also the only one where Jess is actually civil to Luke, just bonding over Luke asking out a woman. He made fun of him, but he didn’t start a fight with him or anything.

Sorry guys, not too much to say about this episode, but it did leave me wondering what’s going to happen next.

Gilmore Girls “I Solemnly Swear” – Season 3 Episode 11

I have no recollection of watching this episode before, so I’m happy I saw it now. I think Paris jumped to conclusions a little too quickly and I can’t believe she was actually thinking of hurting Rory during fencing. That was too much. I get that she’s upset, but it was unlike her to not think rationally about things before jumping to conclusions. When Rory went to bed early I could relate to the feeling of avoiding communication with a group of girls all day can be exhausting.

My favorite part was when the girls ran into Luke outside his diner and started ordering their dinner, but then added other things that they need like magazines and things for the bathroom if I recall correctly. That cracked me up.

Lorelai got hit on of course and I liked her exchange with the guy she didn’t know before. Francie officially scares me now, but I like how Rory deals with it by plugging in her earphones and not letting it bother her even if she’s eating alone.

Gilmore Girls “That’ll Do, Pig” – Season 3 Episode 10

I don’t think I actually saw this episode before, so it was nice. It was interesting to see Emily freak out over her mother-in-law coming into town in the same way Lorelai freaks out over Emily. The funny thing is Lorelai was able to give her mother advice on how to deal with her mother. I didn’t see that one coming, just like I didn’t see it coming at the end when she stands up to her mother and says she’s not finished with her course.

Clara is adorable, but I have to agree with Jess — too annoying. It kind of made me laugh watching Dean acting all sweet and gentle in front of Rory, but then when he’s alone with Jess he gets all up in Jess’ face and in Jess’ head. Jess actually looks scared of Dean again, letting insecurity sink in. I’m kind of nervous for Jess now and I didn’t think that would be possible, given the kind of guy Jess is.

I want that teddy bear! Oh, and Kirk was funny in the restaurant with Rory and Dean, listing all the different flavors and options. xD

Gilmore Girls “A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving” – Season 3 Episode 9

Once again, these girls can pack it away like a bottomless pit. Four Thanksgiving meals in one day! I would never want to go up against them in an eating contest. I understand why Emily is upset about Lorelai avoiding her calls, but I really didn’t think it was necessary of her to make her come to Thanksgiving dinner or else. Emily seems to get more and more manipulative with each episode.

I liked how this one showed just how obsessed Sookie can get with her cooking and having everything just so. It cracked me up at the end when she’s really drunk. This was also the first time I’ve seen Jackson in such an attractive, manly light deep-frying everything and all the guys around him hailing him a hero. It was really neat to see that.

I liked how Lorelai talked to Dean and made things less awkward, but that smile he got on his face was mischievous. Then later when he threatens Jess like that I knew why, but I wasn’t expecting that behavior from Dean. Jess actually looked scared of him and I wasn’t expecting that from Jess either. At the same time, there was a teeny part of me that liked Dean standing up for himself. He’s right. This is his town and he shouldn’t be hiding. He shouldn’t be hiding if it’s not his town either.

Lane’s kiss with Dave was cute. I don’t like the sound of his voice very much, but it was amazing he could get past Lane’s mother like that and not make Mrs. Kim suspicious. At least not yet, hehe.
