If there was a picture in the last episode of people jumping off a scaffolding holding umbrellas, why is it a huge surprise that they're about to do it again? Rory tells Logan that she worries those people will die. Logan explains that there's room for one more after him, because Finn didn't make it this far. Rory realizes what he means. "No!" she says. Logan says they won't die, because nobody in the Life and Death Brigade has ever died, despite the ominous-sounding name. A guy named Seth tells Rory that it's very safe, and that not one potato on the test drop was harmed. I just realized that sash they threw around Rory is to hide her body mic. You can tell how it's clipped to the front of her gown. Rory tries to back out, saying she's a journalist and not a participant. Logan goes down a list of great journalists who were great because they threw themselves into the thick of it. Now, most of those journalists are dead or crazy, but that's good enough for Rory, who realizes she's going to have to jump. Stee just walked over, watched six seconds over my shoulder, and then said: "What a dumb guy. Is that the love interest? Is he wearing a wig?" Stee, who wanted nothing more than for Luke and Lorelai to get together because he loves Luke more than a straight man should, has stopped watching this show. I think that really says something. It also means Stee saw the top half of the gown, but that's the part that looks the least like what I'll be wearing. I'm not going to stress about it. Our wedding will be fantastic!
Rory and Logan climb the scaffolding, bonding over their fear of ladders. I am impressed by Rory's ability to climb in that thing, even with the ballet slippers. "High," Rory says when she reaches the top and looks down. "We are very high." Logan says he's been higher. Seth tells Rory that the piece of fabric that will tie her to the string that will save her life is "totally safe" and "goes with [her] outfit." Rory asks why the people down on the ground look so worried. "We're low on champagne," Logan explains. The crowd begins shouting random Latin-esque words. "You trust me?" Logan asks as they hold their umbrellas and look down. "You jump, I jump, Jack," says Rory. Logan grabs Rory's hand, and everyone jumps. Wide shot of the six jumpers as they make their way down to the ground. Oh, it's the most glorious thing that has ever happened to Rory! She says it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. "Only if you want it to be," Logan says to her.
