17 Gilmore Girls Plot Lines That *Literally* Made No Sense
If the Gilmore Girls revival proved anything, it’s that this early ‘00s series touched the hearts and lives of way more of us than anyone could have imagined, with Gilmore Girls festivals, eternal lines at Luke’s Diner pop-ups in major cities, and an experiential marketing plan that brought multiple generations of fans out of the woodwork to celebrate this singular and formative television masterpiece. We shudder to think at how many coffee addictions were born out of repeat viewings of the series, how many yearbooks were full of “Life’s Short, Talk Fast” senior quotes, or how many people thought it was okay to date clearly unstable pseudo-greasers just because they were cute and well-read.
Nothing in life is perfect, even the best show to ever air on television (suck it, Breaking Bad). Gilmore Girls was full of continuity errors, strange out-of-character plot twists, and selfish, self-destructive behaviors masquerading as quirks. There were some parts of this series that will never make any sense, and once you notice them, you won’t be able to see the series the same way again. Keep reading for a closer look at the show and its biggest plot holes, mistakes, and just straight-up confusing moments.
