Most notably, Rob Lowe will return as Sam Seaborn for the final two episodes. I know there had been a lot of speculation about Lowe's return, but now it's happening. Also set to reprise their roles:
* Mary-Louise Parker (Amy Gardner)
* Anna Deavere Smith (Nancy McNally)
* Emily Proctor (Ainsley Hayes)
* Marlee Matlin (Joey Lucas)
* Gary Cole (VP Bob Russell)
* Tim Matheson (Ex-VP John Hoynes)

* Annabeth Gish (Elizabeth Bartlet Westin)
Squee! SQUEE! More squee! As if the J/D stuff wasn't enough incentive--I am SO gonna be tuning in for the rest of the season. I'm not gonna like it, I'm sure, but I'll be glued to the TV nonetheless.
Last night's Gilmore Girls was just plain lame. Not stab-myself-in-the-eye hateful like a Daniel Palladino episode, just kinda boring. I don't care about Christopher and Gigi and whether or not she's spoiled. And what was even the point of Rory's panel? To bore us to tears? To fill time? And Rory needs to grow the fuck up. You don't cut someone out of your life, refuse to talk to them for weeks and then try to claim that you weren't officially broken up and they should have stayed faithful to you. Unless you're a complete tool, that is. And Lane and Zack? I have nothing (much) against Zach, but if the writers seriously expect us to accept that they're gonna get engaged out of the blue like that after not talking for months, they have obviously lost all grip on reality. Why is it that none of the characters on this show seem to have the ability to actually talk and work through problems? They all just run away, shut down, and then miraculously make up whenever sweeps rolls around. What. Ever.
There were, however three highlights that saved it from being a complete waste of an hour:
1. Sebastian Bach singing "Hollaback Girl" - I nearly peed myself I was laughing so hard.
2. Danny Strong a) drunk and b) wearing Rory's coat. Awesome.
3. Luke's handling of Lane after the proposal. So cute. And I needed some Cute!Luke after the last hideous episode.
Rumors continue to circulate around the internets about Arrested Development and Showtime, but STILL nothing official or even vaguely reliable sounding. Gah. Give me something, people!
