This episode makes me so happy at first and then sad. I’m always really excited when Lorelai is sporting her pig tails and Max is being so cute. Then, when she calls Christopher from her bachlorette party, you know bad news is around the corner.
I keep thinking if Michel hadn’t invited Emily then Lorelai’s feet would’ve remained at room temperature. Thus, I blame Michel for the demise of Max and Lorelai’s relationship. I do have to wonder, if the clown pillow that appears when Max moves out of the frame early in the episode is just a foreshadowing that he would later play the fool.
