At the diner, April is helping to wait tables, as Luke takes to-go orders over the phone. Zach rushes in to announce that he's mastered the maze -- it's easier to go through the maze than around it. WHANG! Later, when Luke must put this to the test, he runs into Lorelai, who has been wandering lost through the maze for a while. WHANG! She teases him about the bracelet, and he starts laughing about it and about parenting a teenager, but she cuts him off. "Luke," she says. "I'm sorry." It all comes pouring out. She's sorry about going to Christopher the night of their big blow-up. She was wrong, she says: "I don't know why I didn't say this before." Luke looks at her very kindly. "I'm sorry, too," he says. "I was crazy to think that I had to fix everything in my relationship with April before I could really be with you. That's just not how you fix things. I mean, you know, things don't just stand still. They're always changing." Lorelai: "Yeah." Luke goes on: "I guess I was compartmentalizing, if that's what you call it," he says. "I mean, I should have opened my compartment. I should have gotten your help." She says that she wanted to help. He says he knows, and he knows now that he used April to push her away. "I was afraid," he says, "and I'm so sorry." Aw. I mean, it's not appropriately emotional, of course, but for GG, this is practically opera. They both agree that things between them are okay, and that they're really glad. "I gotta find my way out of here," Lorelai says. WHANG! "By the way," Luke points out, "you're really close. Just go left and two rights and you're out." WHA...oh, come on. It's sweet. Two rights! Smiling, she passes our beloved Troubadour and heads out of the maze.
