‘Gilmore Girls’ Revival: Here’s Why Fans Are Split on Whether Rory Is Pregnant

In two days — we repeat, two days — our life problems will be solved. Gilmore Girls fans will finally know if Lorelai (Lauren Graham) and Luke (Scott Patterson) get their happily ever after, if Rory (Alexis Bledel) ends up with one of her beloved exes and who the heck is pregnant. Fans are still convinced that someone in Stars Hollow will be knocked up on Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, but some have begun to wonder if it may not be who everything thinks it is.

So far, the internet has determined two things to be expected: Rory’s exes — Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), Dean (Jared Padalecki) and Logan (Matt Czuchry) — will all return (which has been confirmed), and one of the women could have a bun in the oven.

The clues are there. One is this photo of an apple, which everyone knows is Lorelai’s biggest pregnancy craving. Another is the low-key stroller that may or may not be hiding in the mirror reflection of this pic

In the trailer, Lorelai brings up Baby Monitor: Sound of Fear in the trailer. Plus, Emily (Kelly Bishop) asks the ladies, “What bathroom will you use to throw up in?”

And of course, this prop photo gets fans thinking there just might be a shotgun wedding.

Until this point, most fans have been certain that Rory is the one expecting. (She’s seen in London with Logan, and Luke is a jerk about her eating doughnuts.) However, one fan pointed out a crucial clue everyone’s been missing.

Fact: Rory is totally getting tipsy with Jess in the trailer, as she vents to him about being jobless, credit-less and underwear-less. So does this kill the theory that Rory’s pregnant? Or does this boozy chat take place before Rory gets a bun in the oven?

Plenty of fans clearly want this pair to happen, so maybe the scene in the trailer is the sign that they really do need to bond over changing diapers and the like.

Or maybe Rory is just going to be happy for a different pregnant person:

And ICYMI, here are the people who are convinced Rory needs to stock up on booties:

A couple fans are even doubling down because why not:

OK, so the one thing fans know is that there are a lot of possibilities. But we’ve made it this far, and in only two long, grueling days (who can eat turkey at a time like this?!), we’ll know for sure.
