Question: Any scoop on Gilmore Girls? Sorry, any poop on Gilmore Girls?

Answer: Brace yourself: Christopher's coming back. No lie. Although Amy Sherman-Palladino initially said there were no plans to bring him back this season, sources confirm that the perpetual spoiler in the Lorelai-Luke romance resurfaces in the Nov. 22 episode after Lorelai gets a surprise call from him. Coincidentally, that's the same episode we meet a mysterious 10-year-old girl who, I'm told, will turn a certain Stars Hollow resident's life upside down. Rumor has it MAJOR SPOILER ALERT someone whose name rhymes with Duke may have a long-lost daughter. (That noise you hear is thousands of Gilmore fans organizing a protest outside ASP's house.)
