LORELAI RETHINKS HER RELATIONSHIP WITH LUKE, WHILE RORY TRIES TO REPAIR HER RELATIONSHIP WITH DEAN - Lorelai (Lauren Graham) suspects that Luke's (Scott Patterson) intentions toward her have become serious, but she doesn't have time to dwell on it as she prepares for the opening of the Dragonfly Inn by inviting friends and family to a test run. Using the opportunity to force her parents (Kelly Bishop and Ed Herrmann) to reconcile, Lorelai is shocked when it becomes obvious that the damage to their marriage is deeper than she had suspected. When Jason (Chris Eigeman) arrives at the Inn to convince Lorelai that their breakup was a mistake, Luke tries to declare his true feelings for Lorelai. Meanwhile, after their last awkward encounter, Rory (Alexis Bledel) goes to great lengths to salvage her friendship with Dean (Jared Padalecki). Melissa McCarthy, Keiko Agena, Liz Torres, Yanic Truesdale and Sean Gunn also star. The episode was written and directed by Amy Sherman-Palladino (#176172).
