8.06 PREVIEW...

This is a one-time thing only. Since I was taking a short break after episode 8.05, I didn't think a preview at the end of the episode would be necessary. However through reviews and other messages, people have requested that I create a preview before I go into the next episode. And so I've decided to do just that.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VOICE OVER: Next time on the Gilmore Girls... Rory's got a new job...

INT. HARTFORD COURANT

ROB (Managing Editor): (As he walks with Rory around the work place, quickly introducing her to her "peers") That's Ken, Maggie, and Shayna. You're going to be a perfect fit for us.

RORY: (A bit nervously, smoothes her hair) Oh, I hope so. Everyone seems nice.

VOICE OVER: ... and new co-workers...

ROB: There's one more person I want you to meet. He's not in yet... I will give you a holler when I locate him.

Cut to... Camera on Rory as she sees someone coming toward her.

VOICE OVER: And Lorelai's got more on her plate than she can handle...

INT. UNFAMILIAR CAFE

Emily and Lorelai at a table.

EMILY: (As she points at a page on her date book) This place comes highly recommended, Lorelai.

LORELAI: But I want something simple, mom. I'm telling you... the square really is okay with me.

EMILY: Don't talk nonsense, Lorelai!

INT. LUKE'S DINER

Sookie and Lorelai are seated at a table. Luke's serving them snacks.

LORELAI: Sookie, are you sure you shouldn't be at home resting?

SOOKIE: (Frustrated) No! I like this. I want to be out.. and do normal stuff... not just sitting there waiting for the kid to pop. (Sookie suddently pauses and makes a face) Umm...

CUT

INT. HOSPITAL

Rory and Lorelai are in the waiting room. Lorelai's looking nervous.

LORELAI: How is your new job?

RORY: It's going great so far. I really like the people...but...

LORELAI: But?

RORY: I don't know... there's this guy...(As Rory continues her account, the frame cuts to a young gentleman as he makes his way through the hallways between cubicles - intensely occupied with his paper. Camera cotinues to follow him and we don't get to see his face yet)... He is a bit intimidating...

LORELAI: How?

RORY: I don't know. He just seems so into his work... and maybe (gestures) a bit snotty. I don't get a good vibe from him... sort of intimidating. (Shakes her head) I'm probably just imagining things. (Notices Lorelai's not entirely focused) Are you okay?

LORELAI: (Sighs, then smiles) I'm fine. You're grandmother is exhausting.

Cut to Emily ordering people around in her house. She has taken some of the planning upon herself.

INT. CRAP SHACK

Camera on Lorelai (alone in the house) looking around in deep thought.

VOICE OVER: Can Lorelai stand up to her mother? And tell her what's really on her mind?

CUT

INT. GILMORE MANSION

Lorelai and Emily are at the table going over more plans.

EMILY: (going on and on about the catering) ... This lady, Cheryl was highly recommended by the Farthingtons... or this one here... Russo, is his name (notices that Lorelai is not paying any attention)... Lorelai? Lorelai?!

LORELAI: (jumps a bit) Huh?

VOICE OVER: What's really on Lorelai's mind? Find out next week when the Gilmore Girls returns on the (insert your favorite network here since I passionately dislike the CW).

Thanks to Melin, we have cast the new character. Much appreciated, Melin.

Look out for new character that will be played by Adam Garcia (please feel free to look him up). He will be playing Nathan (Nate) Thomas Di Luca, an almost 30-year old editorial journalist at the Courant. As I've mentioned before, he's a scruffy faced, established journalist (occasionally wears eye glasses), that is passionate about his work and has a drive for humanitarianism... but very little time for anything else.

Keep an eye out for 8.06, which I will post as soon as I get a breather. Thank you all for your support on this silly season of mine.
