Tread Perilously returns to Stars Hollow for the seventh season episode of Gilmore Girls, “The Long Morrow.”
Lorelai and Rory’s relationships head for the skids as the former sleeps with Christopher and Rory attempts to understand a present left for her by Logan. Meanwhile, Luke realizes it was probably a mistake to walk out on Lorelai and tries to repair their relationship. Babette’s panties end up in the laundry. Paris tries to remind Rory that clarification shall be the whole of the law. Lorelai attempts to compare her life with Luke to dangling from a bumper and listening to Green Day. Taylor’s attempt to bring a red light camera to town leads to disaster.
Gilmore Girls superfan Kat Carpenter joins Erik and Justin to explain away the seventh season of the show, her love of Lorelai and Rory and why she tolerates Luke. Kat’s origins in another timeline are discussed. Laundry room etiquette also gets defined. Kat also explains Luke’s logoless cap. Erik admits his love for Paris, but cannot remember Taylor’s name. Kat highlights the girls’ poor attitude toward exercise. She also resents the belaboring of unfunny jokes — both on Gilmore Girls and on Tread Perilously.
