You gotta hand it to Rory. She played Logan, and without even realizing it. The minute she told him she wanted to go back to being friends, the pretty playboy with "a hundred girls on speed dial" offered up commitment. (Though the cynic in me wonders if deep down Rory knew the rich boy would want what he couldn't have. 'Cause that girl sure ain't stupid.) I've never hidden the fact that I'm not a big Logan fan, so I wasn't all that impressed. But I do have to give him credit for returning to Rory after his parents roasted her at dinner. I figured he'd make it half way through that cell phone before the night was over. (I had to laugh when Logan's mother insisted Lorelai wasn't the reason Rory wasn't good enough for Logan. So this moneyed hoity-toity society gal has no problem with a woman who turned her back on her moneyed hoity-toity family as a teenager to raise a child alone out of wedlock? Riiiiight.) If you ask me, Logan's the one with a lot to prove, not Rory. Though I am sure she won't be feeling that way once she starts her newspaper internship with Logan's dad. I can read the headline now: "Trouble Ahead for Gilmore Girl." But really, the most important moment of the evening was the fabulous guest appearance by TV Guide's own Michael Ausiello. In case you missed it, he was the one reading a book in the corner of the Dragonfly Inn when Luke and Lorelai had it out over Sookie's wacky meddling. His hasty retreat had Emmy written all over it. Way to go, Michael!
