‘Gilmore Girls’ Fans React to Final 4 Words: ‘This Cannot Be the Ending’

(Spoiler alert: Please do not read on if you have not watched all four episodes of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life” on Netflix.)

The fated final four words to end “Gilmore Girls” have finally been spoken, and fans are having a strong reaction.

As well they should, since the conversation between Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Rory (Alexis Bledel) opened up far more storyline possibilities rather than wrap everything up in a tidy fashion.

The final four words, are, as follows:

Rory: Mom.
Lorelia: Yeah.
Rory: I’m pregnant.

Oh snap!

“The ending. No. this cannot be the ending,” said one distraught fan on Twitter.

“In complete shock,” said another. “I need more, surely it can’t end there!!”

Rory’s confession opens up a whole host of questions, not the least of which is: Who’s the father?

Of course, the likely answer is Logan (Matt Czuchry), the college ex-boyfriend she’s been having an affair with throughout the entire revival series.

There is also the absent boyfriend Paul that she keeps forgetting exists, but he and the “Star Wars” cosplayer she had a one night stand with seem like far less likely suspects.

However, since Rory and Logan broke off their friends-with-benefits arrangement, a baby doesn’t necessarily mean they will be getting back together. In fact, if history repeats itself, could we be in for a second round of a sort of Lorelai-Luke-Christopher love triangle?

Lorelai may have had a baby with her high school boyfriend Christopher (David Sutcliffe), but years down the line, she ended up marrying Luke (Scott Patterson), the best friend who was there for her  throughout her single mother trials and tribulations.

Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) is back in Rory’s life, playing the supportive friend who just happens to be a fellow writer who understands her very well, and we know he’s not exactly over her as of this revival series.

Of course, there are some differences between Lorelai and Rory’s situations. Rory is 32, exactly twice as old as her mother was when she had her at 16, and she’s had very different relationships with the men in her life.

One thing is certain though, the central mother-daughter theme of “Gilmore Girls” seems destined to continue if there is indeed more story to come. Previously, showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino downplayed the possibility of continuing the series, saying this summer, “This is what it is. It’s what it is, right now. We put this together, we told these stories, now we throw ‘em out into the universe.”

If the fan reaction to the final four words are anything to go by, the universe is demanding more. See a sampling below.
