In the previous episode, Lorelai talks about being ready to say “I love you”, and how important it is for her to teach Rory about commitment. And yet, in ‘Love, Daisies, and Troubadours‘, Lorelai hesitates when Max says “we should get married.” She says it’s because the proposal should be magical – that it should have a thousand yellow daisies and candles – but is that true?
In this episode, Luke and Max seem to be sparring – or “swinging their things around”, as Lorelai puts it – about their position in Lorelai’s life. That alone should be some indication to Lorelai that her future is a little confused. Max, indeed, only “proposed” marriage as a way to end their constant derailment – the squabbles that drive them apart. But is that a reason to propose?
Do you think there are a lot of red flags to Max & Lorelai’s relationship? Is it enough that Max did get the thousand yellow daisies? That Lorelai says she “might be” happy?
