Even after seven addictive seasons of Gilmore Girls, fans have been screaming for more and thankfully Netflix has answered our prayers. Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is set to hit our screens in November with four new 90-minute episodes, but there are still so many unanswered questions. Do Luke and Lorelai live happily ever after? How are the Gilmores coping after Richard’s death? What are the final four words?
But amongst all of this, the one question echoing inside everyone’s heads is: whom will Rory end up with? All three of Rory’s major love interests have been confirmed to make appearances in the revival, but which of them (if any) will end up becoming her soulmate forever?
Well if Instagram is anything to go by, it’s anyone’s game.
While every boyfriend of Rory’s has his own squad of shippers, fans of Rory/Dean pairing are having a field day over the latest picture on the Gilmore Girls Instagram, which reveals a box of corn starch nuzzled between some of Rory’s beloved books on a shelf.
As many of you may know, the cornstarch is significant because when Rory and Dean share their first (truly loveable and innocent) kiss, Rory was in Doose’s Market (where Dean worked part-time) pretending to shop for corn starch. The two came across each other and started talking casually when out of the blue, Dean kisses her on the lips! The soft and tender kiss left her in a complete daze that she ran off, cornstarch in hand.
“First kiss. First crime.” Such a fitting caption to accompany this intriguing new image.
Of course, the cheeky team behind the Gilmore Girls Instagram account have been teasing fans for weeks with a series of nostalgic and titillating images reminding us all of her time with both Logan and Jess. The account posted this picture last week that reminded us of the first time Rory realised Jess loved books almost as much as she did.
They also posted an image that gave fans of Logan and the Life and Death Brigade (a secret society at Yale) all the feels.
But the Rory/Dean-themed picture is definitely one for the books (pun intended). The memory of her very first boyfriend is a special one. As to who will win Rory’s heart for good? We’ll have to wait and see.
