Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is going down on November 25, which means you'll be spending your post-Thanksgiving feast drowning in a sea of turkey, feelings, and Dean-related side-eyes. Netflix's revival has been awash with secrecy, but hold up—we just got our hands on (opens in new tab) some spoilers. Get ready.

Richard's death has majorly impacted Emily: Amy Sherman-Palladino says that Mrs. Gilmore's arc will answer questions like, "What does the death of a husband mean to a woman who had a life very specific to her all of these years?" and "Where does she go from here?"

Lorelai is having a low-key existential crisis: Sherman-Palladino says fans will find Lorelai as a "single-yet-coupled independent woman who has had guards up all her life to protect her daughter and to protect herself." She'll be dealing with questions like, "Where am I now? Where's my path? Where's my comfort?" In other words, who is Lorelai without Rory?

Rory is having a high-key existential crisis: Expect Rory to have very little chill, because she's questioning basically all her life choices. [Edit] "It's this idea of, you hit [your 30s], you did everything right—you went to college, you had the good grades, you worked really hard—and yet somehow life isn't turning out the way you wanted it to turn out," says Sherman-Palladino. "And because the world is changing [so quickly] I think that's something a lot of very well educated [thirty-something] kids are going through. They're turning around going, 'I did it. I did the homework. I did the finals. I did the whole thing. I know the shit. Why am I not getting where I need to go?'"

Fair questions, but as long as Rory doesn't end up with Dean (opens in new tab), we're thinking she's good to go.
