* The last final words as seen in the revival are [[spoiler:about Rory being pregnant]]. These are the words that Amy Sherman-Palladino really intended to end the show and if Amy really ended it on season 7, [[spoiler:Rory would be pregnant at 22 just as she graduated from Yale. It's not as worse as Lorelai getting pregnant at 16 but being pregnant just after graduating from college is just sad and terrible considering that Rory is getting ready to build her career and get a job only that it would stop because of that. Also, she's unprepared for being a mother at a very young age. Never mind on who the father is (it would still be Logan who is the next Christopher), how can Rory support her child if she doesn't have a stable job and income? Yeah, she might get support from her mom and grandparents. But she's an adult where she needs to be self-sufficient and responsible and at her age, she had to make her place in society. The final words in the revival makes sense since at 32, Rory is prepared for it despite her failing journalism career, she still has some money left whatever work she had done in the TimeSkip (how else can she travel from America to London) and working at the town's newspaper and writing a book would make amends]].

* After Rory loses her virginity to Dean, she assures her mother that they were "very safe", implying that they used condoms. But their encounter happened on the spur of the moment, ostensibly totally unexpected. Did she have condoms in her room? She was visiting from college and wasn't dating anyone, why would she have stocked up for the summer? The alternate explanation is that Dean had one on him, but given that Dean was married and visiting an old girlfriend, the most logical explanation is that he knew (or at least hoped for) what was going to happen. If that's the case, it wasn't a spontaneous moment of passion, he went there deliberately to cheat on his wife.

** It's possible that she was just on birth control, and figured he would have told her if he had contracted an STD. But I also wouldn't be surprised if the implication was supposed to be that he was prepared and ready.

** She probably was extra sad about Logan because she at that point [[spoiler:knew she was pregnant]].

** Factor in his HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood and probably crappy experience with strange guys trying make nice with him so they could get close to Liz, Jess has a lot of reason to be suspicious of this cheerful woman he doesn't know singing the praises of an uncle he barely knows.

* Rory spent her entire childhood pursuing the goal of getting into Harvard, and most of her college years with the goal of graduating Yale, but after that she had a rather vague "be like Christiane Ammanpour, travel and write and stuff" sort of "goal". This could easily be why she hasn't made anything of her life and career yet.

* Rory is actually an attention junkie. In the revival I first thought that Paul was really pointless, didn't really bring anything to the plot, and it seemed very out of character for Rory to treat someone like that, but then you realise that growing up she was always perfect and adored and had a lot of attention on her. Then at Yale she blended in a lot more, because everyone is exceptional, and that's when she first started unraveling. So maybe Paul wasn't out of character, she's just used to having people's undivided attention and being admired, but in the real adult world that's a lot bigger than Stars Hollow it didn't just happen to her as naturally as it did in high school and living in a small town. So she used him for an ego boost when her life didn't quite pan out as it was supposed to - her career is at a standstill, even a website she thought was below her didn't want her when she got desperate, and Logan is engaged to someone else and no longer exclusively pining for her.

* The development of Rory TakingALevelInJerkass makes more sense when you remember that Lorelai raised her like her friend and not her daughter, and with growing up in Stars Hollow, she's been spoiled by ''everyone''. She's never been really told "No" or disciplined in her entire life as well as being told that she's special and gifted and given everything she's ever wanted. When she tries to strike out on her own in college, that's when she encounters the realities of being told "No" and what consequences are. But because she's never really been equipped or taught how to handle setbacks, she starts lashing out and regressing to the safety of when everything did go smoothly for her.

* In the revival, Emily's new life [[spoiler:volunteering at a whaling museum in Nantucket]] makes a ton of sense when you remember that when she attended Smith College for her MrsDegree, she majored in history and was involved with the DAR, an organization in real life dedicated to women in history. She likely has had a lifelong interest in history, but put it on the side when she got married. Now that [[spoiler:she's a widow and no longer involved in the DAR]], she now has some room to explore her own interests.
