This episode originally aired on May 10, 2001 on The WB

Episode 21 serves as a fitting season finale, culminating various story arcs while setting the stage for new beginnings. The episode encapsulates the essence of Gilmore Girls with its unique blend of romance, humor, and the indomitable spirit of the mother-daughter duo at its core.

The episode opens with Lorelai waking up to find the front porch of her house covered in a thousand yellow daisies. This grand romantic gesture is Max Medina’s unique way of proposing marriage. Both Lorelai and Rory are shocked and delighted, and Lorelai takes her time to process the implications of this step.

While Lorelai contemplates her relationship with Max, Rory’s love life also sees significant developments. Dean, unable to move on from Rory, publicly declares his love for her with a dramatic gesture of his own, recreating their anniversary. Their reconciliation provides a heartwarming contrast to their recent breakup.

In parallel, the dynamic between Luke and Lorelai deepens. Luke’s clear discomfort and unspoken feelings become evident upon hearing of Max’s proposal. The two share a significant conversation, hinting at an underlying connection.

Sookie’s relationship with Jackson also progresses. Jackson surprises Sookie with a revelation about wanting to move in together, which catches her off guard, leading to a humorous exchange.

However, the episode isn’t all about romantic relationships. The bond between Rory and Paris, which has been tumultuous at best, begins to shift. They share a genuine moment of connection, laying the groundwork for a potential friendship.

Amidst the whirlwind of emotions, Lorelai and Rory’s relationship remains the show’s anchor. They share their dreams, fears, and future aspirations on the eve of Chilton’s final exams.
