"Gilmore Girls" creator opens up about the psychology behind WHY Rory dated Logan in college
Calling all Team Logan fans: we’ve got some juice on the hunky Gilmore Girls character that might surprise you.
In fact, Gilmore Girls creator, Amy Sherman-Palladino just opened up about the reasoning behind Rory dating Logan in college and it has to do with Christopher.
Throughout the seven seasons of Gilmore Girls, Rory Gilmore, played by Alexis Bledel, had her fair share of suitors including the main three of Dean (her first love), Jess (her bad boy and our personal fave) and Logan (her college sweetheart).
All the men who came in and out of her life were very, very different but there was a specific reason that Rory dated Logan Huntzberger, played by Matt Czunchry, in the first place and it is all about her father, Christopher Hayden, played by David Sutcliffe.
Okay, while dating your dad sounds a little creepy, we totally get what Sherman-Palladino means. Logan was the preppy, wealthy, stereotypical rebel, with a trust fund to back him up, guy that Chris was for Lorelai and it could be the reason they broke up at the end of the series. Since Lorelai and Chris never worked, Rory and Logan could’ve been doomed from the start.
Bledel revealed that it really was a mirror image to her character’s mother and father’s young romance.
Despite the obvious similarities, Czunchry, who played Rory’s college love, didn’t exactly see Logan as Christopher part two.
We might be Team Jess, but Logan did push Rory and take her out of her comfort zone. Plus, who wouldn’t want a BF who could take you all over the world at the drop of the hat?
