Does anyone, besides me, think that it was weird that Paul Anka mysteriously disappeared for most of Season 7? What, was he at doggy daycare?? – Guest question by Broadwayboy
Paul Anka was an important part of Season 6, but then went into obscurity. I think in Season 6 he represented to Lorelai all of the things she regretted in her relationship with Rory – all of the things she wish she did differently as a parent. She was also a substitute comedy pairing for the reduction of the mother/daughter times in the show. In season 7, Rory and Lorelai are back together, so perhaps that’s why?
What do you think?
