- An Amazon.ca Best of 2005 selection.
The center of the third season of Gilmore Girls was the Rory-Dean-Jess triangle, which played out with surprising sensitivity and not a bit of sadness; it all came to a head in the episode "They Shoot Gilmores, Don't They?" in which Rory and Lorelai's quest to win a dance marathon ends in tears and break-ups. The year's teen drama did have a tendency to put the adults on the back burner, but the luminous Graham made the most of her character's dilemmas, whether gauging her growing attraction to diner owner Luke (Scott Patterson) or wrestling with her parents' continuous meddling. While it is hard to pinpoint a specific compelling story arc for this season, that doesn't mean it wasn't filled with the charm, smarts, and rapid-fire dialogue that made Gilmore Girls one of the brightest shows on television. Stellar supporting turns from Liza Weil as Paris, Rory's friend and nemesis by turns, and a pre-O.C. Adam Brody, as a band member who falls for Rory's best friend Lane (Keiko Agena), also punctuated the drama of the season with great comedy. --Mark Englehart
Un mot sur la série elle-même : Gilmore Girls est l'une des meilleures séries produite par la télévision américaine ces dernières années (à égalité avec Veronica Mars). A voir et à revoir.
Richard, Lorelais father, gives Lorelai money that he invested in her name when she was born. With this money, she pays back her parents for the Chilton loan, thus upsetting Emily dearly. Emily and Lorelai don't talk for a while, and Lorelai plans on using the left over money to invest in the Inn with Sookie. However the financial aid doesn't come through for Rorys college which puts the Inn plans on hold for a while. In the mean time, Rory finds out and takes it upon herself to go to her grandparents to ask for a loan, in order to ensure that Lor can open her own inn.
The last episode is the graduation and then the Gilmore Girls are off to backpack around Europe!
What defines this third season for Lorelai and Rory are not the men (or boys) in their lives but rather their goals of realizing their dreams. For Lorelai this means opening up her own inn with Sookie. That dream gets put on the front burner when a fire damages the Independence Inn ("A Tale of Poes and Fire"), but buying the Dragonfly Inn (the house from "The Waltons" if you know your television history) proves to be a problem ("Say Goodnight, Gracie"). When Lorelai insists on spending the money she got from her father on her daughter's education at Yale it is Rory who has to cut her own deal with Richard and Emily so that her mother can get her dream too ("Those Are Strings, Pinocchio"). It is supposedly a "win-win-win" situation, but that remains to be seen.Read more ›
