As the Emmy-winning series featuring a strong and loving mother-daughter relationship reaches its seventh and final season, Lorelai and Rory turn to each other for support. Will their relationships and dreams come to fruition? With a colorful cast of characters, life in Stars Hollow is anything but dull. As the season unfolds, Lorelai's relationship with Luke may be over now that she has let Christopher (recurring guest star David Sutcliffe), Rory's father, come between them again. Even so, Lorelai and Luke still have to coexist in tiny, close-knit Stars Hollow with the town's watchful eyes on them and their charged history. Meanwhile, Rory will attempt to keep her long-distance romance with Logan alive, even though communication has never been their strong suit, and London is far away. Rory now begins her senior year at Yale and continues as the editor of the Yale daily paper. Recurring guest stars this season include Sherilyn Fenn, Vanessa Marano, Krysten Ritter and Michael DeLuise.
