    Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    Since Caity dyed her hair right before going to Vancouver, I figure she's just around doing Shethority stuff.

    Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    I love Sara and Caity but this seens more proof that Marc is still fairly in charge. I remember this from a year(or so) ago. “But truth be told, I wouldn’t want to do it unless we could figure out a way to get Sara (played on Legends by Caity Lotz) in there as well. One of my favorite episodes was 406, where we had Speedy, Black Canary and Canary all fighting side-by-side-by side together, and that was a blast. Seeing three badass women was really, really awesome. [An all-girls mission] is on our ‘bucket list,’ but I really want to figure out a way to get Sara in there as well.”

    Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    I've been avoiding spoilers since I'm way behind this season but I've watched the latest episode because Sara was in it. I've been having questions for awhile but especially now. I know the future timeline isn't connected to Lot's Star City 2046, but what about the events of Zari's time? With the anti metahuman act of 2021 and a 2042 where ARGUS experiments on metas? Sara, Ray and Rory were called Meta's even though they weren't. Mia has to be connected to Oliver. This show is at it's core Oliver's story. And Mia's clearly being pushed so the link to Oliver has to be there and strong. As soon as she was cast I thought the actress looked like she could be EBR's relative. I thought it was a nice touch Mia, Connor coming to the bunker. I mean if this is OTA's offspring. I have no idea why William wouldn't know a sister but all I think of is that she was young and sent to boarding school. What if Mia was 12(thea's age at the time of the Gambit sinking. What if she wasn't a fighter then - maybe not even blonde? That could give Oliver and Felicity at least a little family time before all hell unfolds. I think I just can't remove it from Zari's time and it's setting me up for failure.. Where's Diggle and ARGUS? Yes I've barely watched the FF's...😇 Mia calls JJ Connor so secret names and identities might not be farfetched. (Of course anything can be wiped by time travel or weird crossover crap (I haven't watched the Crossover this season yet).
  5. Is s7 the only time her English major is mentioned? She does have a lot of economic and philosophy classes.
  6. I know she wants to be a journalist. It's mentioned a lot. I'm talking about her Yale major.
  7. I don't think Rory's major was actually mentioned until s7. I could be wrong though. Rory does joke in, But Not as Cute as Pushkin, that a girl in her modern poetry class was kicking her chair. So there is at least one class that would fit that major. I'm the revival, Rory tells Taylor that she has a journalism degree from Yale. but it"s believable that it was just easier to say that then to go into detail about how Yale degrees work.
  8. By the way, the LDB is an anarchy group so no one is saying trading rich people things is a good thing, Just that Rory's behavior is little different then it was in the past. Though when Colin&Finn likely do the same thing she doesn't believe her grandmother... By nature Rory is a subdue person so she does often let things slide until she's overwhelned or emotional. Stress is a trigger for her but often she just lets the stronger people sort it out.
  9. She tells Logan no. And as I mentioned, earlier she didn't say anything about Lorelai getting the wedding planner fired the same as here. She did say to Lorelai that it was her Grandmother's seating chart but it's not until Lorelai mocks the LDB that Rory gets mad. This kind of behavior is similar to what Rory grew up with. Mocking the pretentious rich people. It doesn't feel big until Emily freaks and goes off on the maid. Which really isn't a new experience for Rory either. And Rory will really only make a scene if she's emotional. Here she isn't sure how to respond and Lorelai defuses it pretty quick.
  10. Rory didn't call Lorelai out most of the time. And she mainly called Lorelai out about the wedding planner because Lorelai attacked the LDB. Rory didn't call out Lorelai being the one to mess with the seating chart after Emily said she fired the planner.
  11. I think it's messed up to do the linking. There is no reason to go beyond saying there are people who are privileged who get away with worse.
  12. When you link a character to crimes they don't commit, they get associated with those crimes. You guys are putting him in the same breath as rapist. Logan helped his Girlfriend take a boat because she was sad and got that Moby Dick quote stuck in her head so needed to take to the seas. As for Logan's arc, you can tell Amy disregard s7 for him. In winter s6 she said, "Logan is a kid whose entire life has been preplanned for him. Rory grew up in a household where it was like, ‘Anything you want, kid, you go for it.’ He never had that. He grew up with all the money privilege, but he didn’t grow up with any freedom. His freedoms are sort of self-imposed, ‘I’m going to go act like an idiot, because I’ve never gotten a chance to explore who I am.’ ". And in 2016, she said, "This is a boy who has never been released from his family. And all the freedom of the money and the wonderful charm of the Life and Death Brigade and the fact that he has cars and can do…in his heart, in his soul he’s incredibly trapped".
  13. Trading rich people objects because they never notice is similar in nature to Lorelai's mindset. That's why Rory didn't even pay it much attention. We get that privilege exists in real life but there really is no point to linking Logan to rapist. Talking about Logan's privilege doesn't need to be linked to things that he's not linked to. Logan has all the things money can buy but he has no real freedoms. He's allowed to joke around but was..is never allowed to explore who he is as a person. The family holds a huge grip on what he's allowed to do, the people he's allowed to be close to and the time table he's forced to walk through to his Huntzberger responsibilities. They give him the illusion of freedom but without most of the benefits. That is his storyarc. Rory is a bridge. She is allowed to explore her options because she has choices but she's always on the bridge between decisions. Rory often chooses to not explore her options or waviers between options. Here Rory could have accepted Logan's lawyers and had similar privileges as him. She was an adult here. She didn't need her mom or Grandfather to decide what was best. Rory ran from her mom to her grandparents and let the side she was with make the decisions. I think Rory suffers because she didn't do her much needed pro-con list on which lawyers to choose. She did the same with leaving school. She makes impulse decisions and/or allows the strong people in her life to heavily influence her path even when they don't recommend that for her and warn her against it. Ironically she is inspired by Logan's live "for now" but doesn't listen to him so she only gets half the benefits and very little of the understanding of why that is his path. I always think of Rory as a people pleaser, in the best possible way in that she wants them happy. But she doesn't understand how people work. Communicating and understanding others trying to communicate is her kryptonite. And that goes doublely for herself. That's why her journey is filled with charge, miscommunication and curveballs. Rory is dealt with a harsher sentence and even a criminal record because Amy wanted to see how Rory deals with this curveball. If only Amy was a bit more able to keep characters consistent instead of allowing plot points to dictate characters.
  14. Rory made a plea deal. We have no knowledge of what deal Logan made or not. Or who he talked too. Maybe Richard said they had it handled. We don't know if the prosecutor talked to Logan. We don't know what his defense argued. We didn't see any of the Logan side. Logan told Rory the boat wasn't theirs to take. It was night so finding a yacht to rent wouldn't have been easy. He offered to drive to New York and she didn't want that. And then he offered his lawyers to deal with it. Sure white privilege is real but linking Logan to those rapist wasn't necessary.
  15. I stand by my belief that Rory didn't disrespect Jess. Rory was hurting and went to see a friend's open house and he assumed she was there to rekindle a long over romance. She could have used a friend. We have no idea if Logan ever set foot in a court room. We didn't see Logan dealing with it. Logan's story arc is that "he grew up with all the money privilege, but he didn’t grow up with any freedom". Rory was in front of the judge dealing with it because she made a plea deal. It's leniency disgusted the judge who didn't accept the deal and instead sentenced Rory to harsher terms. One of Rory's story arc is that she wasn't raised in privilege until sophomore year in high school but became her mom made a deal with the devil to improve her daughter's chances of fulfilling their dream, Rory now lives with the consequences and responsibilities of privilege without any of the self awareness. If she understood she would have accepted Logan's lawyers.
