Lauren Graham Compares the Ending of 'Gilmore Girls' to 'The Sopranos'

After binge-watching Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, we can now say that the show left us with a massive cliffhanger. Sure, diehard fans finally discovered Amy Sherman-Palladino's last four words, but now we're all dying to know what the future holds for Rory Gilmore. Whether you strongly feel that the Gilmore Girls deserved a better ending after all this time or you've been busy crafting theories about Rory's future, one thing we can agree on is that we weren't expecting those final words.

Even Lauren Graham (aka Lorelai Gilmore) was a bit awestruck when she found out what the infamous four words would be. 


Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life concluded with Rory telling Lorelai that she's pregnant, leading to tons of questions. Now that the news is out, Lauren feels a sense of relief—especially after dodging questions about the revival for months. "It just felt like a relief to talk about it and share it with people," she said while visiting the Today show.

Lauren also shared her thoughts on the final four words. "I did not know the four words until halfway through filming this duration of the series and I too was [like], 'Huh, really? Huh?,'" Lauren said. "It makes sense in terms of the journey of the show, but I can understand it poses a question as well."

No kidding. That was probably one of the biggest finale cliffhangers we've ever seen. In fact, some are saying that the ending is similar to that of The Sopranos

"Someone compared it to the end of The Sopranos where it left a little bit of a question in the air, which was similarly controversial but artistically satisfying," Lauren said. "I don't know."

That's certainly arguable, but for now, all we'd like to know is WHO the father of Rory's child is.
