Speculation (Below is spec based on the spoilers and what I think might happen)
Added September 1st, 2006 - We may get a morning scene with Chris at Lorelai's (I hope not) in the teaser, Rory may come home to get things for her trip to London and find Chris their.

They might be fighting or and argument between Chris and Lorelai, they get to Emily and Richards for diner and it could be the beginning of the end for them.

Rory is surprised in London with his team and Bobby.

ETA - Rory doesnt go to London, Logan comes home for a surprise visit.
