Luke's teenage nephew, Jess Mariano, comes to live under his care.
Emily and Richard enjoy developing a relationship with their granddaughter, but also realize how much they have missed.
The season ends with Rory reuniting with Dean, and Max proposing to Lorelai.
I always felt like the underlying thing about Gilmore was that, if you happened to be born into a family that doesn’t really understand you, go out and make your own. It was a cycle of crazy family." The series also focuses on both girls' ambition: Rory to attend an Ivy League college and become a journalist, and Lorelai to open an inn with her best friend Sookie St. The romantic relationships of the protagonists are another key feature; throughout the series Lorelai has a "will-they-won't-they" dynamic with her friend, local diner owner Luke Danes, while also harboring unresolved feelings for Rory's father, Christopher Hayden.
Rory has three boyfriends during the run of the show - local boy Dean Forrester, mysterious, well read bad boy Jess Mariano, and wealthy charismatic Logan Huntzberger.
