However, once Luke and Lorelei (Scott Patterson and Lauren Graham) came together onscreen, the chemistry was undeniable.
“We did a few shows and they just had chemistry,” Sherman-Palladino added. “It was the episode where they were in the market and Lorelai’s spying on Dean. Luke was there and they had this scene that didn’t mean anything.”

“I knew it from the moment we met, and I knew it was going to work on screen. We just had a rhythm.”
