S3:E11 I Solemnly Swear

“It’s a bird, it’s a plane… it’s Super Jackson and his atomic pea tendrils!” — Sookie

The Feldster, Bung. When was Sookie doing this summer job and hanging out with these people? Is she not originally from Stars Hollow? I have no idea! But her guy friend knew about the “old 52 inch Viking” stove she has at the Independence Inn. What the heck? Did she take a summer off from the Inn to do this? Were they friends for a while after that summer and drifted? Let’s note here that Sookie’s date pantomime is fantastic. Exactly how I would do it.


Another note: I don’t like the coffee guy. He’s really lack luster after Lorelai’s other love interests. Although he does have the coffee going for him.

.Coffee guy meh.

For some reason, I hate the storyline with Francie and Rory’s secret meetings. I’m annoyed that they met (even if I like the Godfather references)…I must be Paris.

The way Rory tells Lorelai how you present the truth makes something not lying is a very interesting concept.

Of course, the best scene in the episode is undoubtedly when Emily reads aloud the transcript from Lorelai’s deposition. I wonder why Lorelai had to be the one to give a deposition on Emily’s behalf. Maybe someone at the DAR would’ve been more effective.Deposition reading


S3:E10 That’ll Do, Pig

This episode is mildly laying the ground work for future Lane storylines. She has kind of a double-life as it is, but here we learn that Lane’s band will be practicing in Lorelai’s garage and that she is still a member of the Stars Hollow High Marching Band. Thus, we have defined the two sides of Lane.

Oh, Gran, back in Stars Hollow to ruin Emily’s week! I actually really like Gran and find her relationship with Richard to be very amusing. However, I like Emily more and the best scene in the entire episode is when Emily refuses to finish a course in the 12 minute eating allotment. Go, Emily, go!

My final thoughts are to tell Dean once again that he’s trying too hard. There was something exciting about Jess pursuing Rory, but Dean is not having the same effect. Now, I just want to tell Dean he should move on to the other fish in the Stars Hollow High sea. He shouldn’t want to date Rory anymore because she developed a crush on Jess while she was his girlfriend. Also, didn’t she kiss Jess at Sookie’s wedding while she was Dean’s girlfriend? (Well, Dean doesn’t know.) It’s hard to come back from that. Move on, Dean.
