Butt-Faced Miscreant!

Ahhhh Rory Gilmore. Rory, Rory, Rory. She was the nerdy-hot girl so many of us looked up to or just had crushes on from 2000 to 2007. Smart mouthed. Pouty mouthed. Mmmmm that mouth…

I’ve been rewatching the series again lately. I’ve hot the episodes where she and Logan first start flirting and then dating. I hate to say it, but I really did and do like the two of them together. I know…no one else does…but give me the benefit of the doubt here…

While most people will say that Dean is the best because they were each other’s first loves and he took her virginity, there is still the faction that thinks Jess is the one she is meant to be with because he is the bad boy turned good. Those are valiant reasons to want either to be the one that ends up walking off into the sunset with her in the revival, but let me tell you why I think it is (and should be) Logan.

Logan is the privileged dick when we first meet him. He is the Huntzberger heir. The stereotypical bad boy of the elite. The blonde haired, blue eyed poster boy of the Life and Death Brigade (In Omnia!). He pisses her off to no end.

He is (like Paris) uniquely suited to not only anger her but challenge her. He is vexed by her in a way that he clearly has never been accustomed to. They gravitate towards each other while outwardly pushing back.

Over the course of their relationship, you see sides of Logan that he was loathe to show. You see softness. You see vulnerabilities. Rory shows a toughness that he brings out in her. They suit each other beautifully. Each possesses traits the other lacks. Each has something to teach and offer. Each learns and grows. They are two plants on a window sill, destined to entwine as they grow.

The ending in season 7 was horrific. The whole season was a travesty. Rory being a part of the Obama press corps was definitely spot on, but the rest of it was just bullshit. I know the writers for the final season were trying to play it off as though she was confronted with a life she didn’t want (a la Lorelai) but any true fan of the show knew that was bullshit.

I think the revival gives us all a chance at healing from that and some closure. I hope honestly that Rory repaired her relationships with Dean and Jess, but I hope that she rekindled that special something she and Logan just had from moment one.

I always envisioned the two of them standing at the altar, getting ready to say their vows to each other, and he whispers, “If you jump, I jump Jack”.
