If you’re not a die-hard Gilmore Girls fan yet, let me do you a favour: drop everything, call in sick to work for the next eight to ten days, park your bum on the couch and keep watching ’til you are.
If you’re a normal person, though, you’ve probably been spending your weekends scouring every single scrap of information released by Netflix in preparation for the upcoming revival.
There are just so many questions to be answered.
To start with, there’s the issue of which of her ex-boyfriends Rory ended up with (if any).
There’s the far more sombre issue of how the show will deal with Richard Gilmore’s absence following actor Edward Herrmann’s death.
We need to know if Rory still works in journalism, whether Paris went ahead with her medical degree (please, God, don’t let her actually be treating patients…) and how Lane is coping with mothering seven-year-old twin boys.
Listen to the hosts of The Binge discussing the Gilmore Girls revival.
And recently, Bustle added yet another question to our ever-expanding list: Is one of the Gilmore Girls pregnant?
Bustle puts forward three reasons that the answer could be a big fat yes – but we’re not necessarily convinced.
So without further ado, we present without comment: the evidence that a new Gilmore baby is on the way.
(OK, so there’s a little bit of comment. It’s Gilmore Girls. We couldn’t help ourselves).
Many fans locked onto the apple in the above photo as a sign that Lorelai (or possibly even Rory) might be pregnant in the revival, referencing Lorelai’s admission that the only time she’s ever felt like eating an apple was when she was pregnant with Rory.
Which would be incredibly convincing… if not for the fact that Lorelai served “Poptart appetizers with an apple as a garnish” way back in Season 1, when Paris, Madeline and Louise visit Rory’s house for the first time.
