Here are some of the best episodes:

The Pilot- The show first aired on Oct. 5, 2000

The pilot shows Rory getting into the elite college-prep school Chilton, kickstarting her Ivy League dreams, as well as the beginning of Friday night dinners with Lorelai, Rory, Emily, and Richard. Together, the plot points create a rich foundation for the rest of the season and series at large, and they illustrate the complex relationships of the show.

“I Can’t Get Started” (Season 2, Episode 22)

Christopher and Lorelai finally reconnect, but their reunion is short-lived due to news he receives from his ex-girlfriend, Sherry.

Leaving us with the burning question of what the heck is going to happen with Dean?

Rory’s first days into college poses an interesting question: What happens when you separate the inseparable Gilmore girls? Rory meets her freshman roommates and surprise, Paris is back! Oh you know this will make the next four years oh so interesting!

“Partings” (Season 6, Episode 22)

This was the last episode that show producer and writer wrote and after that the show changed forever.

The dreaded day has come, Logan has graduated but the love must continue. Logan is being shipped off to London to do some growing up and learn about the business world. Rory does what every sensible girlfriend would do and throws him a big party before he leaves. Lorelai is put into an uncomfortable situation when her parents set up Christopher on a blind date at family dinner. This causes Lorelai to realize that she is not going to marry Luke and that their relationship had might have been a huge mistake.

Now that the show is coming back, the show creator and writer Amy Sherman Pallimino said that she will be writing the episodes. She will right all the wrongs that were done in season 7. Also answering  the questions that fans have been wondering for the last eight years!
