In honor of the upcoming Gilmore Girls
revival, I'll be posting a few ONTD originals leading up to the big Netflix premiere. To kick it off, we'll take a look at the best seasonal GG episodes, since the upcoming episodes will be titled by each season. Warning that there will be spoilers in the descriptions!
Best Winter Episode: Season 1 Episode 8
Love and War and Snow
This quintessential episode gives viewers the best that GG has to offer. We receive our first introduction to Lorelai's love of snow, a recurring theme that runs through the shows 7 (soon to be 8) seasons. With the snow comes a flurry (pun intended) of amazing plots, storytelling and classic Stars Hollow whimsy. We get to witness Lorelai and Max, Maaaaax Medina's first date and first relationship that Lorelai will eventually run into the ground. In those same moments, there's Luke, staring longingly as Lorelai walks past. Again, serving as a great buildup to their relationship, that we don't get until the end of season 4. Rory gets stuck at her grandparents’ house due to the weather, laying the groundwork for her budding relationship with her grandparents and background on Lorelai's early years, finding a picture of a young Chris and Lorelai. Finally, we get the perfect amount of townie antics: a town meeting and war re-enactment, and Lane running her hands through her bandmates hair. Everything really is magical when it snows.
Runner Up Episodes: Season 2 Episode 10 - The Bracebridge Dinner, Season 5 Episode 11 - Women of Questionable Morals( Spring, Summer and FallCollapse )
