Long before the Internet lost its collective sh*t when Dan Harmon was removed from his showrunner duties on Community, something similar happened to Amy Sherman-Palladino and Gilmore Girls. He was fired; she, and her husband Daniel, were “unable to reach an agreement with the studio and are therefore leaving when our contracts expire at the end of this season.” They didn’t return for Gilmore Girls‘ (disappointing) seventh and final season, meaning fans never got to hear the infamous “final four words” that Sherman-Palladino had always planned to end her show with.
(The last words in the Sherman-Palladino-less finale: “I guess so.”)
Then in swooped Netflix for a limited series, and not only is seemingly everyone from the original series returning (save Melissa McCarthy), but according to Yanic Truesdale in Us Weekly, we’ll finally get to hear those four words:
“I know them because I read the script!” cast member Yanic Truesdale (Michel) tells Us. “I always felt it was intriguing, like everyone else. I was like, ‘How does she know the last four words?’ But when I read it, I was like, ‘Oh, OK. That makes sense.’ I can see now why she knew that that would be said.”
What could they be? “I love you, Rory”? “We’re all Gilmore girls”? “Hold the mayonnaise, please.” It’s probably “hold the mayonnaise, please.”
