Netflix’s Tweet About Rory Gilmore’s Baby Daddy Could Mean Another Season
Warning: This post contains hella spoilers for the last episode of “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” If you weren’t spoiled by the title already (which, sorry, but it’s been a month), save yourself now.
It’s been over a month now since the “Gilmore Girls” revival came into our lives and ruined our families’ Thanksgivings. (I’m assuming you’re like me and binge-watched all four episodes when it debuted.)
Maybe by now you’ve moved on a bit. Yes, those last four words were pretty killer, so was that twist ending in “Westworld.”
You can’t fret about Rory Gilmore’s future forever, right?
This is where Netflix steps in to say,
Um, actually, yes you can. We own your soul forever and ever, amen.
Remember how the revival ended with that whole “Mom, I’m pregnant” thing?
And remember how, while it hasn’t been confirmed, we’re like 90 percent sure Logan is the father? And how we made peace with the fact that Rory probably raises the baby on her own, based on that scene with Christopher?
Yeah, Netflix just threw all of that into turmoil with this tweet posted to the official company account on Wednesday evening.

In case you don’t remember, this is a shoutout to April’s science project when she figures out Luke is her father.

So basically Netflix is implying Rory’s child grows up, reaches the eighth grade and STILL doesn’t know whether her father is Logan, Paul or that guy dressed in a Wookiee costume.
OK, that might be taking the photo kind of literally, BUT STILL. The fact is, Netflix is opening up this baby question: Logan, Paul or Wookiee?
Does… does this mean… could it be… ANOTHER SEASON IS COMING?
Why else would Netflix open up this can of worms, unless we are going to get some answers?
Honestly, I had been pretty content to just assume the baby was Logan’s — considering Rory slept with the Wookiee in the “Spring” episode and seemingly doesn’t find out she is pregnant until the “Fall” episode, meaning she would have been about six months pregnant already.
As for Paul, I was not even considering him as an option.
If Netflix is dragging this baby daddy question out again a month later, it BETTER be planning to follow through with some answers in a new season.
All the fans are more than ready.

Well, there was that hint from Matt Czuchry that kind of, sort of implied “Gilmore Girls” isn’t quite over.
JUST GIVE IT TO ME ALREADY!
