Lauren Graham & Alexis Bledel React to 'Gilmore Girls' Final Scene
All episodes of the Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life revival series have been released on Netflix and many fans have already binge-watched them all!
Now, stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel are sharing their thoughts on the final scene of the series and the “last four words” that everyone wanted to know. Just a heads up, this post contains no spoilers.
Lauren told THR that she didn’t even know the whole “last four words” lore was actually a thing.
“I didn’t know until halfway through filming this that those existed and then Amy told them to me on the set. I was surprised for a minute and then it made complete sense,” she said.

Alexis said she felt “a lot of pressure to get it right, to make it awesome. More than anything, I was just trying to be really focused and really present just to make sure that whatever I did in the scene felt rooted in my experience of the character and I was communicating something that felt real to me.”
Lauren tried to avoid reading the final script for the series as she didn’t want the experience to end, even though the final words weren’t even in the script.
“I had a very general sense of where Lorelai was that made complete sense to me and then, what I didn’t know exactly is how it would end,” Lauren told THR. “For the longest time, I couldn’t read ‘Fall,’ which is our last episode. I was like, ‘This is psychotic, I have to read where this ends up,’ but I think I was both worried it wouldn’t be satisfying and also just kind of wanted to save it. Eventually, I read it and it was very satisfying.”
Series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is satisfied with how she ended the series.
“It was satisfying in the context of when we put it altogether,” she said. “It’s an emotional moment.”
