Alexis Bledel Says Her 'Gilmore Girls' BFs Get Closure -- but Honestly, We're Over It

The countdown clock has been ticking away for fans in anticipation of the long-overdue revival Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life on November 25. I mean, forget Black Friday -- it's #GilmoreGirls Friday! Leading lady Alexis Bledel recently gave a few hints about what fans can expect from the potentially Netflix-crashing reboot. Of course, Bledel couldn't talk about Rory and not mention her career, but she also dropped some interesting insight on Rory's three love interests -- mainly that there will be closure. But how and with whom are the questions fans are asking ... and despite years of watching these couples, this fan really hopes that Rory doesn't end up with any of her past loves.

Now, as a major fan of the show, I have shipped the hometown sweetheart pairing that was Rory and Dean. I understood Rory and Jess's literary connection (because everyone loves a bad boy who is smart). And I even came around to the idea of Rory and Logan's rebellious relationship that was a huge factor in the infamous Rory and Lorelai rift of the sixth season. But this time around, I am saying no more to these ships.

Though, I may or may not get what I want. The 34-year-old actress told Us Weekly, "I think there is satisfying closure for any fans of any of the three couples that tend to get some attention."

Closure is good -- though she also went on to say, "But they're very different interactions. I would say each one of them [gets] closure in a different way."

Keep in mind that this installment of the series will only include four 90-minute episodes, so that's a lot of closure in a short amount of time. Add in the fact that viewers are catching up with the cast eight years later, and that leaves so many possibilities.

Think about it -- no one is the same person that he or she was eight years ago. And neither is our old pal Rory. According to Bledel, Rory has been living the nomad reporter lifestyle since we last saw her on the campaign trail at the end of season seven.

"She started her work as a journalist at the same time that newspapers were going away. Her field changed dramatically as she was just kind of getting up and running. So that's where we pick up with her," said Bledel in the same interview.

"It's real time, so it's been about eight years that she's been living a bit of a vagabond lifestyle, kind of chasing each story that she becomes passionate about and wants to tell."

Rory is definitely giving fans #careergoals in the sense that she is literally chasing after her dreams. Having Rory end up with one of her previous beaus is a little anticlimactic. Let's face it -- that's not befitting of a Gilmore.

Why does she have to end up with anyone?

Rory is a smart, successful journalist. "There is so much more to her character. It's great when people focus on her ambition and her accomplishments," the actress said when discussion fans' curiosity about her love life during a panel discussion for the Television Critics Association.  

A typical happily ever after with another proposal that includes an avocado tree in the backyard (remember Logan) is not what anyone wants. A smart and fun send-off with a lot of witty banter in between is more like it.

Yes, I am excited that all three guys will be returning to the small screen, and I'll get to relive some '00s nostalgia. So fans just have to trust that the relationships will be given their due -- and, hopefully, proper send-offs. But let's not dwell on Rory's love life. It won't make or break Stars Hollow, people. 

But then again, the closure could be three very short interactions between the pairs while Rory is off chasing down the big stories. 

I have no clue, but I'll be waiting (impatiently) for November 25 to find out what happens with Rory -- regardless of who she does or doesn't end up with. 

Rory deserves a relationship with someone that makes sense for the person she has become. But if she decides she's fine solo come episode four, I'm fine with that too because she has plenty of time to live life and figure out what she wants.
