Overview

Picking up where the previous season left off, season six of Gilmore Girls begins as Stars Hollow innkeeper Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) takes the initiative in her love life by proposing marriage to taciturn diner owner Luke Danes (Scott Patterson). Although he accepts, his subsequent hemming and hawing whenever the subject of a wedding date is brought up will dictate much of the action this season, culminating in a jaw-dropping cliffhanger finale involving Christopher Hayden (David Sutcliffe), who as everyone knows, is the father of Lorelai's college-age daughter Rory (Alexis Bledel).

Unfortunately, Lorelei and Rory aren't on speaking terms as the season begins, mainly because Rory has decided to drop out of Yale University -- and, incidentally, has run afoul of the law for the first time in her life, requiring her to perform 300 hours' community service. Happily, Rory finally agrees to return to Yale, taking over the editor's post at the campus newspaper when her roommate Paris (Liza Weil) is ousted in a "coup." Throughout the season, the relationship between Rory and her wealthy student boyfriend Logan Huntzberger (Matt Czuchry) is a shaky one, especially after she learns of his various infidelities while speaking to the bridesmaids at his sister's wedding. Rory and Logan are reunited when she nurses him back to health after he is seriously injured in a stunt performed for the secret campus clique "The Life and Death Brigade." However, the couple's future is placed in jeopardy when Logan's father, powerful publisher Mitchum Huntzberger (Gregg Henry), forces the boy to take a job at his London newspaper. In other season six news, Lorelai's estranged parents Richard (Edward Herrmann) and Emily (Kelly Bishop) have decided to give their marriage a second chance -- and, much to their daughter's dismay, have elected to move to Stars Hollow; Lorelai's business partner Sookie (Melissa McCarthy) again copes with her responsibilities of new motherhood; Luke's ditsy sister Liz (Kathleen Wilhoite) becomes pregnant by her oafish husband T.J. (Michael DeLuise); and Rory's rock-musician friend Lane Kim (Keiko Agena), now reconciled with her conservative mother Mrs. Kim (Emily Kuroda), weds Zach (Todd Lowe), a member of her band, in the oddest ceremony of the 2005-2006 season. This year represents Gilmore Girls' last stand on the WB network; henceforth, the show would be seen on the brand new CW hookup.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
The normally quiet hamlet of Stars Hollow was in a state of disarray at the end of Gilmore Girls' fifth season: Previously perfect Rory (Alexis Bledel) had been arrested for stealing a yacht, dropped out of Yale, and moved in with her wealthy grandparents (Kelly Bishop and Edward Herrmann), causing a distraught Lorelai (Lauren Graham) to propose to diner owner Luke (Scott Patterson). Season 6 opens with Luke's reply (yes), and much of the year's episodes deal with the progress of their impending nuptials, although series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino throws obstacles in their way like a bored goddess toying with her creations -- making Season 6 the series' most controversial yet. Nearly as divisive for fans is a half-season-long fight between Rory and Lorelai that keeps mother and daughter apart. Grandmother Emily sees all of this as a way to correct the mistakes she made with Lorelai, but she soon finds out that having Rory under her roof isn't quite the bonding experience she'd hoped for. Despite the topsy-turvy state of things, Season 6 had many classic episodes featuring outstanding performances and the show's signature crackling dialogue: Friday dinners with the grandparents are reinstated in "Friday Night's All Right for Fighting," containing a wild ten-minute finish unlike anything the show has attempted before; Lane (Keiko Agena) gets married -- twice -- in "I Get a Sidekick Out of You," which also finds Lorelai spilling her guts about the state of her own engagement, to everyone but Luke; and "Partings," the season finale that has Lorelai issuing Luke an ultimatum, while Stars Hollow is overrun with musicians hoping to be the new town troubadour (including members of Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth, and Sparks). The season's biggest cliffhanger, however, happened off screen: Sherman-Palladino and her co-producer husband, Daniel, announced they were leaving the series. The show continues for better or worse, but Gilmore Girls -- The Complete Sixth Season is the end of an era for one of television's best shows.
