In ‘The Incredible Shrinking Lorelais‘, Lorelai falls apart because things at the Inn are not going smoothly. Of course, she’s not the only one things are falling apart for, but we’ll just focus on her. Because here it’s Luke who comes to Lorelai’s rescue. After yelling at Sookie and melting down in general, Lorelai runs to Luke. Who earlier she had said she wanted to have a “talk over something” with a dinner (poor Luke, do you think he got the wrong idea?). And it’s Luke who helps put things back together for Lorelai.
Luke’s there to offer her emotional support as well as financial support. Even after he probably went to mush thinking about the dinner and listening to Lorelai say she “wishes she were married” for someone to help her in these times. Well, he’s that guy (and yet he’s not)!
A funny side note: this is the first episode where Rory & Lorelai don’t appear in any scenes together!
