There is one Gilmore Girls couple that will definitely NOT be getting back together in the revival. All three of Rory's former beaus will make the jump to Netflix, but at least one of the boys men will merely be passing through.
Dean Forester is raising the white flag. Nearly 12 years after Jared Padalecki's character left the series, David Sutcliffe (Christopher) has confirmed that the Windy City transplant is no longer willing to fight for Rory's (Alexis Bledel) heart.
"You know, I liked all the young actors that played her boyfriends," Bledel's on screen father told USA Today. "I know they're not going to end up together but Rory and Dean seem like a good couple."
It seems Sutcliffe is all fathers. Who wouldn't want their daughter to choose the nice, upstanding young man who always treated her right? Although Dean was certainly the most respectful and grounded of Rory's suitors, there are plenty of fans that still didn't think he was quite the right fit for Gilmore Girls' whip smart lead.
Sutcliffe's announcement should come as a surprise, however. Back in May, EnStars reported that Padalecki's role in the revival would be limited due to his busy Supernatural schedule. The CW star managed to pop down to Los Angeles for a day of filming, and, while we don't know what episode Padalecki will appear in, series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino was more than happy to write a quick scene for the fan favorite.
"She basically said, 'Listen, we're going to write you a really cool scene and if you get a day off let us know we will just put your scene on the schedule for that day. It's a set that we already run and own [and] it's an actress that already is working every day, so let us know," Padalecki previewed at Rome's Jus in Bello convention.
Does this mean Rory will couple up with either Jess (Milo Ventimiglia) or Logan (Matt Czuchry)? The Yale grad won't be married when Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres, but that doesn't mean she has to find love over the course of the four 90-minute episodes. Even if she does, she defiantly doesn't need to rekindle her relationship with one of her old flames (although we all really hope she does!).
