Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you haven’t finished watching all four episodes of Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.
Gilmore Girls star Matt Czuchry has some surprising advice for his character, Logan, following the shocking final scene.
In Netflix’s A Year in the Life, Logan and Rory (Alexis Bledel) engaged in a secret “friends with benefits” relationship — only Logan was engaged to Odette, often mentioned but never seen, and Rory was with Paul, her forgettable boyfriend. At the end of the revival, Rory revealed to her mother, Lorelai (Lauren Graham), that she was pregnant.
Though the father of Rory’s unborn child remains a mystery, it’s been speculated that Logan may very well be the dad. Czuchry shared the one piece of advice he’d give Logan following that emotional cliffhanger.
“Don’t marry Odette,” he said during a Facebook Live chat on Thursday. “Chase down Rory. Make that work. She is the love of your life. Odette, I always kind of looked at as part of his family obligations, so I would say, if I could give Logan one piece of advice, it would be to chase down Rory. Follow his heart.”
When asked how Logan would react if he learned that Rory…

Lauren Graham says she and her Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life costars are steering clear of the internet after the revival of the popular series debuted on Netflix last week.
During a panel discussion hosted by SAG-AFTRA in New York Tuesday night and streamed via Facebook Live, Graham was joined by Alexis Bledel, Kelly Bishop, and Scott Patterson. Moderator Gazelle Emami, an editor at New York Magazine, noted that some viewers have criticized Gilmore Girls characters for being “kind of awful sometimes and a little bit selfish.” She pointed to Paul — Rory’s neglected boyfriend whose name Luke and Lorelai can’t seem to remember. “There’s been a little bit more of a backlash against their characters this time around,” Emami said.
“We don’t pay attention to anything,” Graham responded. “We don’t know. None of us are on the internet, almost at all. So I know what you mean, but the show has a sense of humor, and that’s its sense of humor. And I think maybe it feels a little different; Rory’s not in high school anymore, so yes, as grown women constantly forgetting… I just thought it was a funny runner. But the whole show has a kind of heightened theatrical quality. I mean, just like Donald Trump, don’t take it literally. But unlike that, to me it was more of a metaphor for, this isn’t the right guy, and this is how they communicate about…

With Netflix’s upcoming four-part Gilmore Girls revival, titled Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, a large number of the show’s original cast members were given the opportunity to reinhabit the characters they said goodbye to years ago. However, getting back into character after eight years is an experience every actor approached differently.
As far as Lauren Graham and Kelly Bishop were concerned, snapping back into the mindsets of their Stars Hollow — or Hartford, Connecticut — counterpart was simple. “To pick it up again felt really kind of inevitable,” Graham tells EW of playing Lorelai. “[It was] definitely easy in most ways.”
For Bishop, Emily Gilmore was easy to tap back into because she never went anywhere. “She’s been there all along,” Bishop says. “She travels around with me, so as far as Emily’s personality and her character, it was just waiting for me to climb into the suit and zip it up.”
But not everyone made such a seamless transition. For many of the returning actors, it was about preparation, putting in the work before returning to set. “I thought a lot about it and what I wanted to bring to the character now that would be different from where we left off,” Alexis Bledel says of Rory. “I mostly just imagined where she’s been since we left off, what she’s been doing, how that’s shaped her.”
Ironically, it was Jared Padalecki, who plays Dean, who took the most Rory-esque approach to his preparation: Research, research,…
