Kirk's short film totally rocked! I haven't laughed that hard watching television in a long time.
then there's over-over-reacting because it would serve a larger plot point while betraying the consistency of the characters. Lorelai's reaction was of the latter.
Really? I really saw it as pretty consistent with Lorelei's prior behavior - any time she's had even the smallest reason to worry about Rory, she has gone into a blind panic. The difference here is that she had reason to be angry as well as afraid, which means she lashed outward as well as inward.
The show wouldn't be called Gilmore Girls if Rory went to go live with Christopher.
Obviously she would come back when she made up with her mother. It would just be something to create some tension and possibly a cliffhanger.
And it wasn't the brken hand that upset her, it's the fear that Rory will make the same 'mistake' she made. Sure, she acts cool most of the time but as evidenced in the past (the episode where Rory spends the night with Dean at the dance studio) the idea of Rory being less than the good girl she's been terrifies her.
Also, I got the impression she felt betrayed by Luke as well. Almost as if asking Rory to tutor Jess against her better judgment was a slam against her. I don't have a lot of evidence to back that up, but I got that impression.
It's apparent that she doesn't trust Rory, else she would not have flown off the handle.
I think it's apparent to everyone but Lorelai. She doesn't want to admit to herself that she has just a slight mistrust of Rory.
And yes, Lorelai is going to start to act more like Emily. One of the Universal truths is that we become our parents.
