In ‘The Ins and Outs of Inns‘, Jess has been acting out. I’m not sure if this is his natural rebellious nature, or if he’s trying to get Rory’s attention. But, aside from the thefts of before, this time he put a chalk outline of a person outside of Doose’s, as if there had been a murder. Stars Hollow is upset about the “Jess situation” and Rory too doesn’t seem completely pleased. She loves Luke and doesn’t want him hurt.
While Rory & Jess share some private smiles about the prank, Rory feels it her place to lecture to Jess about his behavior. That’s a big thing to do to someone you don’t know well! Especially if that person doesn’t know you have a boyfriend… which it appears Jess didn’t know. After lecturing Jess, Dean arrives and Rory has to introduce him to Jess as her boyfriend. And seems embarrassed to do so.
Why is Rory embarrassed? For hiding that she had a boyfriend, or for Dean being that boyfriend?
