As Season 6 unfolds, Lorelai and Rory face their first-ever serious incident of estrangement from each other. Lorelai did everything she could to change Rory's self-destructive path, including asking her parents for help. Feeling betrayed when they side with Rory, Lorelai pours her heart out to her boyfriend, Luke. When Luke instantly offers his support, a touched and emotionally fragile Lorelai impulsively asks Luke to marry her.
Rory has also drifted away from her best friend, Lane Kim (Keiko Agena), who spent the summer touring with her band. Now, Rory and Lane vow to renew their friendship. Plus, Rory's intense former classmate Paris Geller (Liza Weil) is as upset as Lorelai when she learns that Rory has left Yale. Surprisingly, Rory's wealthy and self-indulgent boyfriend, Logan (Matt Czuchry, The Good Wife, who becomes a series regular this season), is also concerned about Rory's decision to leave school and is convinced that she's making a mistake. Will Rory change her mind?
