In ‘Let the Games Begin‘, as soon as Rory & Jess finally share their first kiss (or two), Rory realizes she has to go. After Jess sighs in saying, “Whatever else happens between us, at least we know that part works”, Rory says “I have to go”, despite obviously enjoying the time herself.
After this moment, we see Rory climbing up to see Dean in his bedroom. She wants him to know she’s sorry for treating him badly and says he was “the most amazing boyfriend in the world” and that he made her very happy. She won’t talk with him about Jess, but hopes that some day he won’t hate her.
Does Rory go to Dean because she sees her relationship with Jess moving quickly? Or did the kiss make Rory realize how badly things had ended with Dean? What prompted the apology – then and there?
