16 Easter Eggs You Probably Didn’t Notice In The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Midge’s Wedding Was Emily Gilmore’s Dream
In a bittersweet and hard-to-catch easter egg, Midge’s wedding to Joel is the exact wedding Emily Gilmore had planned for Lorelai in Gilmore Girls. During the show, Emily describes to Lorelai the wedding she had envisioned for her daughter before Lorelai’s pregnancy and self-imposed exile — a Russian winter wonderland theme with snow-white roses, snow everywhere. How is Midge’s wedding described? “Everything was white, and there were trees painted like they were covered with snow.” Seeing as both shows see snow as something wonderful and celebratory, it’s unsurprising this idea was revisited, even though it’s a little sad.
