Gilmore Girls fans far and wide have been pouring over the new trailer for the upcoming Netflix revival since it was released on Tuesday (Oct. 26). Despite how many times you may have watched it, we’re betting there’s still a few details you may have missed.
While the teaser offered fans a great first look at some of our favorite Stars Hollow residents, one person’s appearance we just can’t seem to shake is that of Sookie St. James.
We’re sure fans who have been following the will-she-won’t-she saga involving whether or not Melissa McCarthy would return to play Lorelai’s lovable bestie were just as happy to catch a glimpse of her as Sookie as we were.
What really caught our attention when she suddenly appeared in her full chef regalia, however, wasn’t necessarily her hilarious zinger about making a mess of the frosting, but rather Lorelai’s expression.
It’s interesting that Lorelai (Lauren Graham) seems utterly shocked to see her in the kitchen at the Dragonfly working away on a cake— especially considering that she’s co-owner of the Inn. Sure, it’s possible that for some reason or another, Lorelai insisted Sookie take a break from the kitchen, like she did when she was forced to go on bedrest while pregnant, but we can’t seem to shake the idea that there could be more to Lorelei’s surprised expression.
Would it be so crazy to think that perhaps Lorelia is shocked to see Sookie in the Dragonfly because Sookie has been gone for a while? Perhaps she went off to some exotic location to pick up some new tips and tricks to use in the kitchen, or perhaps she and Jackson finally went away somewhere.
Either way, we’ll be interested to discover why Lorelia looked so surprised to see her friend decorating cakes in her own kitchen!
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life premieres Nov. 25 on Netflix.
