40 Gilmore Girls Facts That’ll Make You Say “Oy With the Poodles Already!”
Jess was written in just so Lorelai and Luke wouldn’t date.
No one is ever going to complain about when Luke Danes‘s nephew Jess Mariano (Milo Ventimiglia) rolled in to Stars Hollow after his mom couldn’t deal with his “bad behavior” anymore. You might think the reason for Jess’s arrival was for Rory to get a bad boy in her life. That actually wasn’t the case. Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino has revealed that Jess was specifically introduced as an obstacle so Lorelai and Luke wouldn’t date. She says the characters would have realized they were meant for each other so there needed to be some bumps along the way to prevent them from getting together right away. Interesting.
