As if the prospect of a Gilmore Girls revival isn’t exciting enough, some eagle-eyed fans might have just uncovered a stamp-your-feet-and-dance-around the-living-room potential plot twist.
The show shared an official snap on their Instagram account yesterday, picturing a cup of coffee and a plate of poptarts in the Gilmore kitchen. Nothing new there.
But in the middle of that giant pile of sugary snacks, there’s an apple.
As we all know, Lorelai Gilmore has never been one for eating healthy, but she did confess that at one point, she did enjoy an apple… when she was pregnant with Rory. Could this lone piece of fruit be a clever hint that either Lorelai or Rory is expecting a baby?
We don’t want to go reading too much into things, but Lorelei was also wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with the words ‘I’m with human’ in the first teaser trailer last week. Might that be a sly suggestion too?
It’s been 10 years since we last caught up with Rory and Lorelei. Who knows what’s changed in that time? Perhaps the Gilmores are now intent on getting their five-a-day. Or maybe, just maybe, a new generation of Gilmores really is on the way…
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life will be on Netflix 25th November
