Lorelai's back with Alex, whom she kisses in front of Rory. Lorelai complains that she's drifting from lack of food. Rory says she'll take care of Lorelai for now. Rory leaves to get take-out, people still all over her house.
Outside Luke's, Jess sees Rory walk past, her arms full of take-out. He leaves the diner and runs up to her. She's totally forgiven him, I guess, and is just happy to have him talking to her again. He says he was going to call her, but she would have been out. She says she knows there was no fight with Dean, since she asked Dean. She apologizes for doubting Jess, and says she needs to trust him like she trusts Dean. Jess says he promises to try not to have a black eye the next time he goes to Emily's. This pleases Rory greatly, and they start kissing. She asks what happened to Jess's eye. He lies, saying that a football hit him in the face. She coos and nurses and pouts. Then there's more kissing and kissing, making out and tonguing until it's pretty obvious that Jess and Rory want to get naked and forget about the take-out. Rory says she has to go deliver food to her mother, but tells Jess not to forget what he's thinking. Jess says he can't think of anything else. I can't wait for the episode when Jess buys condoms from Doose's market and Dean has to ask, "Paper or plastic?"
Back at home, Rory enters with all the food. All the food in the world. Lorelai pulls it out and sets it up to eat, but Rory wants to talk a little about sex. She tells Lorelai that she's thinking about it now. "It." Thinking about "it." Rory says that nothing's happened yet but it might -- maybe. With Jess. Lorelai makes a sad noise. Rory asks if she should still tell her everything. Lorelai says this is a little weird, but that she wants Rory to talk to her about it, and to tell her before it happens. "Right before?" Rory asks. Lorelai says just "before" would be good. Rory says she will. Lorelai says this is good. Rory agrees. They turn to their food. They eat in complete silence, staring straight ahead. Slowly, Lorelai puts one protective arm around Rory's shoulders. Rory keeps eating and then slowly puts her arm up and around Lorelai's waist. She hops a little in place. It's a really good scene and the best ending this show's had in a year.
