I really love When Harry Met Sally. I believe we have discussed that film here before, in fact. It is fantastic. High five if you can quote every line! But do you ever wonder what happens between Harry and Sally after the New Year’s Eve party? After all the years of friendship and false starts and fights and relationships with other people and then finally making up when Harry puts his Mallomars aside and sprints down to that party to tell Sally, finally, how he feels, and the couple we all knew was supposed to be together is finally together? Of course, we do know all about the coconut wedding cake with the chocolate sauce on the side, but the rest of the story remains untold.
And you know I just got done with my big Gilmore Girls re-watch, and this time around, I suppose because I am older now, I spent most of my time watching Luke and Lorelai. They’re one of the best TV couples, are they not? And throughout all seven seasons we all know they’re supposed to be together, but there’s all the stuff with Max Medina and Digger Styles and then, of course Christopher. Can you believe Lorelai actually marries Christopher in the last season? And we have to wait that shit out before she can finally be with Luke again, like she is supposed to be? Infuriating. Christopher is so obviously wrong for her. It’s all worth it, though, in the end, when Luke stays up all night sewing all those tarps and raincoats together for the party and we know, we just know that what that man is doing is love sewing. Those are LOVE TARPS, dammit. But what comes next?
We’re always told the characters live happily ever after, or we’re just supposed to presume that somehow, but we never get to see them do it. What happens, after? I am in the process of finding out.
