May 8: Diamonds, Diplomas and Decisions Season 7, Episode 21

I'm shocked. Totally and completely shocked. Not that Rory turned down Logan's public marriage proposal. (You never want the answer to be, "Will you come talk to me, outside?") No, I can't believe she gave back the ring the same day she got her diploma. "I graduated today. It was supposed to be the happiest day of my life. Now when I look back on it, I'm just going to think about this horrible thing that happened," she told Lorelai. So she couldn't wait one day? Guess not. Maybe that's because deep down she always knew she could never marry the guy. Did you see her face when Logan said goodbye and walked away for good? Lorelai looked more anguished during the proposal. Rory just didn't seem all that devastated over such a "horrible thing." Sorry, Rory and Logan fans. I know you're upset, probably more so than Rory. I'm upset too - that we didn't get to see the huge rock he probably gave her. Aren't you the least bit curious? That said, it was wonderful to see Rory in cap and gown walking across the podium to get her diploma. (Did we know her middle name was Leigh?) Loved how Lorelai didn't try to hold back her tears of joy as she and Christopher gave Rory a standing ovation. Even Paris looked happy (with sexy blonde curls!) as she threw her arms around Rory and told her she could achieve anything. For once, I think she really meant it. Meanwhile, I love that there's still serious tension between Luke and Lorelai, even after they made up in the hay maze. Yeah, I know there's only one last chance for them to pull it together. But these two are stubborn and neither is known for budging. Lorelai was thisclose when she tested the waters at the diner. That is, until Luke heard her tell Miss Patti and Babette that the big serenade "meant nothing." His huge smile collapsed, his voice got flat and he handed her the coffee and donuts to go. Ugh! Lor had a chance to make nice when she ran into Luke and told him the big news about Rory. He seemed glad that she hadn't made up her mind. But who were they really talking about? Luke: Some people need time. Lorelai: Or they're never ready. Luke: Well, I wouldn't say never. They want to be careful. They're a little slower to make sure it's right. Lorelai: You can't always be 100 percent sure. Sometimes you take a leap of faith. Luke: You have to know what you're leaping into. Lorelai: After all this time, how can you not know? Luke: Who not know? Lorelai: Rory. Luke: Right. Rory. All together now: yeah, riiiight. Why, why, why didn't she respond, " you!" Sigh. Another missed opportunity. Same for Luke when he decided not to give her the necklace that matched her eyes. And so Lorelai walked away alone, down that same empty street, yet again. We've seen that sad scene before and it's still hard to watch. Let's hope that next week's series finale brings the joy that everyone has always deserved.
