Paris Geller's freakout on "Gilmore Girls" is all of us when we see our crush
In the second episode of Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, we get a total blast for the past that no one was expecting. When Rory and Paris go back to give talks to young Chilton students, they run into none other than Tristan (FYI, it is not really Chad Michael Murray, sad faces forever).
Fans will remember Tristan as the Chilton ~bad boy~ who annoyed Rory endlessly, while tugging at Paris’ heartstrings. Though he only had eyes for Rory, Paris always had crush on him in high school. And now that we see her freak out at 32 we know the truth: Paris’ crush on Tristan never really went away. And we so get it. Because honestly we’ve all been there.
Paris Geller’s reaction to seeing her crush unexpectedly is honestly how we all feel when see an old crush out of the blue.
In fact, we’d go as far to say there are several stages that we’ve all been through, that Paris definitely goes through as well.
The first stage, is freaking out and running away
You can say a lot of things about Paris, but you can never say she wasn’t good at dramatic exits.
She gets the private meltdown out to your friend down
Luckily Rory has her back for the entire breakdown, just like old times!
She goes through the mental spiraling of convincing yourself that you’re not worthy
Except, come on Paris. You’re totally awesome and we love you. You’re way too good for Tristan!
Then there is the adrenaline rush!
We totally get it though. Francie, that door, and those Chilton students were totally up to no good.
Needless to say, we super feel for Paris in that moment. Running into an old crush is always stressful, but running into an old crush when you’re going through a divorce and are giving a talk at your high school? Yikes! Literally the only person we know who can handle this is Paris Geller.
