The first couple of times I watched this episode, I kept thinking that Lorelai was sleepwalking and dreaming that Luke was repairing things at her house. I guess it was because in the first scene, after she finds Luke fixing something on her porch, Babette and Rory seem like they are just humoring her to get her to go back to bed. This idea was also reinforced by a discussion Lorelai and Rory have about their dreams later in the episode.
Of course, my theory is squashed when Rachel points out that Luke has been at Lorelai’s house repeatedly.
I don’t know why I fixate on this part of the episode when clearly, Max and the daisies are the draw.
