Alexis Bledel Refuses to Choose Between Dean, Jess, and Logan on ‘Gilmore Girls’
Alexis Bledel played Rory Gilmore on Gilmore Girls for seven years. In 2016, she returned to the part of Lorelai in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Though she has gone on to star in other big roles, fans of the series will still remember her as Rory. Despite this, Bledel has remained silent about her time on the acclaimed series. She was recently questioned about Rory’s love life. The 39-year-old actress has remained tight-lipped on who she believes Rory really belongs with. For years, fans have debated the merits of her three core loves.
On Gilmore Girls, Rory Gilmore had three major suitors.
Rory had three key love interests over the course of the show’s first seven seasons. Rory dated Dean Forrester in season 1 and 2 before moving on to Jess Mariano in season 3. She dated Jess for a short time during their senior year of high school before Jess abruptly left Stars Hollow. Does a Season 5 Episode Title Prove Logan and Rory Were Soulmates on ‘Gilmore Girls’?
Rory and Dean tried to rekindle their romance, but it wasn’t meant to be. Logan Huntzberger was Rory’s longest and perhaps most intense relationship. Though the couple split up at the end of the first season of Gilmore Girls, viewers discovered them sleeping together in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Logan is most likely the father of Rory’s brother, though showrunner Amy Sherman-Palladino intentionally left the child’s paternity unclear.
Several members of the Gilmore Girls cast have revealed who they believe Rory’s best love interest was.
Fans aren’t the only ones who are divided over Rory’s love life. Several cast members have spoken out on the subject in recent months. Scott Patterson recently stated unequivocally that he is a member of team Jess. While Patterson acknowledged that he didn’t recall many of Jess’s storylines, the fact that he was Luke Danes’ nephew made him the obvious choice.
