Previously on Gilmore Girls: Lorelai's getting married. She told Luke and he teased her. Lorelai freaks out because she doesn't know what she wants. She says yes anyway, for no reason at all. Emily isn't too enthused, since Lorelai didn't tell her right away. Lorelai wants to spend her wedding shower evening with Luke instead of Max, even though she doesn't exactly say that. Can Lorelai marry herself? Because that's the only way she's going to be happy in this kind of bond.
We open at a cake shop. We all know that Sookie's making Lorelai's cake, so Lorelai's just being evil here. Lorelai and Rory are eating sample cakes and dancing with joy. Rory asks Lorelai if she'd save the cake or her daughter if her house was burning down. Lorelai says the question is unfair, since the cake doesn't have legs. Fran the cake lady walks over to check on the girls. They love the cake. Fran says that the cake should be good, since "we've" been doing it for a hundred and twelve years. Lorelai rudely says that Fran doesn't look a day over one hundred and six. Fran is unamused, and explains that she was referring to her family. Luckily, Rory chimes in here, beaming about the raspberries on the cake and pulling the focus away from Lorelai's giant mouth. Lorelai tells Fran that the wedding is in two weeks (so summer's over now), and that she hasn't decided which cake she wants. Fran tells Lorelai to try them all again, and Lorelai pretends that she doesn't want to sit and eat cake all day long. Fran tells Lorelai that cake is the glue of the wedding, so this is a very crucial decision. Rory eats cake, but the reverse shot doesn't show that the cake has been touched. Fran leaves, and Rory asks Lorelai what it was like to see Max last night. She asks for all of the gory details to be left out. So, are we to assume that Lorelai and Max didn't see each other for two months after they've been engaged for three weeks after they've been dating for two? Wouldn't all of Stars Hollow be whispering that Lorelai's wedding won't last a day? And I've been thinking about how last week Sookie told Lorelai that she worked so hard in life and that she really deserves this. Deserves what? To be married? Because she was so good at being single that now she deserves to be married? Because nobody says anything about love in this relationship.
