Question: Is Gilmore Girls really going to end with Logan and Rory broken up? 'Cause that would suck!
Answer: Yep, they're finished. Sad but true. Knowing you guys would be broken up about it on this, the morning after the big split, I literally went to the ends of the earth to bring you an exclusive little pick-me-up: an exit interview with Logan himself, Matt Czuchry. Due to his travel schedule he's currently in Austria visiting his family the Mattster was unable to talk to me over the phone in time to meet my deadline. But being the unbelievably awesome human being that he is, he went ahead and e-mailed me answers to questions he thought I would ask. So, without further delay, I give you Gilmore Girls' exiting Matt Czuchry, in his own words.
• On Gilmore Girls coming to a close: It is an honor for me to have been part of such a well-loved show for the past three seasons. I know that the fans will miss the connection they have developed over the past seven seasons, and I will miss working with my friends on a project that I believed in so passionately.
• How I found out Gilmore Girls was officially not coming back: Currently I am in Vienna, Austria, visiting my family. I checked my cell-phone messages and one message referenced the official word regarding the end of the show. As I was listening to the message, my niece was calling for me in the other room. She was saying, "Uncle Matt, do you want to color with me?" These are the moments in life that make it all so beautiful.
• On Logan's story line in last night's episode: The joy of Gilmore Girls has always centered around [the relationship between] Lorelai and Rory. I was very happy in regards to Logan's story line when I read the script for Episode 21. The conclusion for Logan and Rory's relationship preserves the integrity and beauty of the show's best quality.
• On the last scene for Logan and Rory: The last scene for Logan and Rory was such an important scene for Alexis and me. We wanted to get the thing right, knowing that there were three years of history between these two characters. The scene had so much weight for us as people and as actors that it was hard to just play the moments and do our jobs effectively. I've seen the end result and I am happy with it. But at the same time, its hard to believe that that's really it. It's all done.
• The impact of Logan: Logan's effect on Rory and the change that he brought in Rory over the past three seasons, and thus the change that Logan brought to the story lines of the show overall, has been an extreme pleasure to be a part of. Rory goes off into the world changed by her direct experiences with Logan. For Logan to be there at the end of such a beloved show is special for me both as an actor and as a fan of the show.
