CW Episode Description
“GILMORE GIRLS” — (8:00-9:00 p.m. ET) “Merry Fisticuffs” (TV-PG, DLV) (HDTV)
LUKE AND CHRISTOPHER COME TO BLOWS — Luke (Scott Patterson) and Lorelai (Lauren Graham) share a sweet moment when Luke introduces her to Liz’s new baby. Christopher (David Sutcliffe) witnesses the scene and it adds to his concern that Lorelai isn’t fully committed to their marriage. The next day, Lorelai and Christopher get into a fight over whether they should exchange vows at the elaborate wedding party Emily (Kelly Bishop) is throwing for them. Luke contacts a lawyer over his custody troubles with Ana, then runs into Christopher and the two have an ugly confrontation in the streets of Stars Hollow. Meanwhile, when Logan (Matt Czuchry) discovers that Rory and Marty (Wayne Wilcox) have been pretending that they just met, rather than admitting their previous friendship to Lucy (Krysten Ritter), he reveals the truth to Lucy. Finally, Emily gives Lorelai a warning about her marriage. Sean Gunn also stars. Jackson Douglas directed the episode written by David Rosenthal.

The TVGuide summary:
Lorelai dreads each day that she meets with her mom and a prominent party planner in anticipation of the upcoming wedding party. Meanwhile, Lorelai and Christopher can't seem to agree on plans for their future, and she usually gets her way; Logan is in town and Rory takes him to the Yale cafeteria, where they run into Marty, and Rory explains the whole awkward reunion she had with Marty and their subsequent deception with Lucy; and Luke decides to talk to a lawyer about April.

TVGuide's Hot List
Despite the series' typical humor, there's an uneasy tension in every relationship on tonight's episode. Lorelai spends agonizing hours with her mom and a wedding-party planner, while she and Chris can't get in sync regarding their plans for the future. Then there's Rory and Logan. While he's in town, a chance meeting with Marty forces Rory to tell Logan about the strange deception between her, Marty and Lucy. Awkward. And there's no subtlety in Luke's anger toward's Anna when he decides to see a lawyer regarding April. - Bill Ecklund

New father to a teen he didn’t know existed! Total tough guy! Regular middle-class Joe. Recently engaged to Lorelai Gilmore. Let’s get ready to ruuuuuumble!" - nst@FanForum

  • Review - "There really seems to be no reason that Lor should be so mean-spirited nowadays, especially towards her parents. She's pushing 40. She owns a successful business. And she's finally married to her high school sweetheart, who just happens to be loaded. So why does she still act like a baby" - tvsquad.com
