If Gran/ Lorelai the 1st/ “Trix” is 80 years old according to Lorelai II in this episode (is it the year 2000 or 2001?) then I would assume she was born around 1920. This makes me wonder about her Gibson Girl inspired look: hair piled high on her head and the high necklines. Maybe I’m reading too much into it. Maybe Gran is over 80.
Other notes: Lorelai II seems to really enjoy the white wine in this season. I wonder when she switches to the martini with a twist.
