In ‘A-Tisket, A-Tasket‘, Jess decides to outbid Dean for the “Bid a Basket” fundraiser for Rory’s basket lunch. This comes as a surprise to Rory – and to Dean. Dean has already admitted to hating Jess, which is already starting to hurt Rory, who has developed her friendship with Jess. It turns out that Jess is willing to pay $90 for Rory’s basket!
Now, $90 is a lot of money to spend just to piss off Dean. So I’ve always thought, perhaps Jess was using this as a public way to say to Rory, and everyone else, that he wants “in”. That he wants “more”. What do you think??
And do you think Jess knew Dean would overreact to the basket, which would cause friction between Dean & Rory?
