One of the tragedies of “Gilmore Girls” airing in the early 2000s was that fans couldn’t get all the spoilers and behind the scenes hints from social media that they can today.
Now, as “Gilmore Girls” enters its last few weeks of filming for the revival series, fans are flocking to Twitter and Instagram to keep track of any and all photos the stars are posting from the set. The most recent photos show a reunion of two beloved main characters.
Luke Danes (Scott Patterson) and Jess Mariano (Milo Ventimiglia) and their uncle-nephew dynamic created some of the best plots of Season 2 and Season 3 of “Gilmore Girls” back in the day, and the boys are back at it again.
The first photo, posted by Patterson on Monday (April 18), seems to be a bit of a candid shot, including the town loner, Kirk (Sean Gunn).
Ventimiglia posted another pic of the trio, captioning it, “Hello from the past, wait present, no you’ll see us in the future :)”
While the funny faces and sweet reunions are certainly attention-grabbing, the one thing that draws our eye most is Luke’s apparel. Rather than a baseball cap and flannel, Luke is decked out in a dress shirt and tie, which was a pretty rare occurrence in the original series.
In fact, the only times we can recall him getting this fancy were Rory’s (Alexis Bledel) graduation, Lorelai’s (Lauren Graham) parents’ wedding, and his uncle’s funeral.
With rumors about a potential wedding capping the last episode of the four-part revival series, you have to wonder… is Luke dressed to the nines because he’s a guest at Rory’s wedding? Or because he’s the groom at his own?
