Who Is Rory's Baby Daddy? We May Have The Answer
The Gilmore Girls Revival. The only thing to piss me off more in 2016 than the Black Friday customers I faced hours before sitting down to watch the four episodes.
If you have yet to watch the new episodes, I don’t know what to tell you. Either do it, and then come read this article, or don’t, and just continue to read this anyway.
Obviously the big elephant in the room is: Which of the main men in Rory’s life put a little bundle of joy in her. There are theories after theories floating on the web, and all of them mostly point to our lovely bad boy with a trust fund the size of Texas, Logan.
While all logics point to Huntzberger, I think the story would make much more sense if it went in a completely different direction.
Now before I go on, I need you to brace yourself. Take a seat, take a deep breath, and relax before I hit you with a bombshell of a hot take.
The baby daddy of Rory’s baby needs to be the guy in the Wookie costume.
There, I said it. It’s out in the world. I know most people reading this will probably leave this page immediately after reading that, but hear me out.
Yes, I love Logan. In my mind, he is the only logical choice for Rory, but he’s already with someone. The whole basis of his and Rory’s relationship in the revival was the fact that they were sneaking behind both of their significant other’s back to be together.
Even though Paul broke up with Rory right at the same time that we find out she is pregnant, leaving her open for a new man, Logan is still planning on getting married to his fiancee. Even though I know he would leave her for Rory in a second once he found out he was the father, as of right now, he is still taken for.
Paul is also completely out of the running for role of baby daddy. Hell, Rory forgets the boy even exists when he is in the same room as her. I highly doubt they ever got down to business during their relationship, so he couldn’t possibly be the father.
That leaves only more person in the running: the Wookie. (And no, I am not counting Jess. It wasn’t or implied that they slept together during the revival, so I’m concluding that it didn’t happen).
Sure, Rory and the Wookie only slept together once while she was on an assignment, but it only takes one time to conceive, and it wouldn’t be the first time someone got pregnant after only sleeping with someone once. It is highly possible.
The baby daddy needs to be the Wookie. Rory needs something new in her life. Even after seven seasons AND four revival episodes, Rory had yet to find someone to spend the rest of her life with. Why stick her back with someone she had already tried to have a relationship with and failed?
In the revival, Rory spent the entire four episodes complaining about how she was broke, failing, and had no idea what to do with her life. Throwing in a complete new character and storyline would give Rory a new direction to take. We have no idea the backstory of this Wookie cosplayer, so who are we to say that he doesn’t have the potential to completely change her life? She was obviously going nowhere with the storyline she’s had for seven seasons and four revival episodes, so why not try something new?
Like I said, we know absolutely nothing about this character other than the fact that he was wearing a Wookie costume when they slept together. The writers could make him into anything they want to. Couldn’t this be an opportunity to completely change the course of Rory’s life? They have no reason NOT to make the Wookie the baby daddy.
While I am vigorously against anymore new episodes, IF the creators decided to grace us with more episodes, I seriously think they need to consider the Wookie to be the baby daddy. Rory needs some new man in her life, and who doesn’t like a man with a little hair on his chest?
