Classic Romantic Moment: Gilmore Girls' Lorelai and Luke
On this Valentine's Day eve, I decided to feature one of my favorite TV couples: Lorelai Gilmore and Luke Danes. With all of the exciting news about Netflix reviving the beloved classic Gilmore Girls, featuring this couple's first kiss seemed like an excellent idea.
These two are universally liked as a pairing in my reading about this show unlike daughter Rory's who's many entanglements spark "team x" fangirls, Lorelai always had Luke's attention, and he loved her silently for all those years.

Read on below to relive this sweet (and sassy!) moment between these two beloved TV characters. And while we're on the subject, what do you want to see in Netflix's upcoming revival?

With all of the Netflix revival news related to Gilmore Girls, I thought it might be fun to spotlight a moment between the epic romance of Luke and Lorelai. Because this show aired for seven years, making a compelling case for these two without a reader knowing the context isn’t the easiest of tasks.
