SPOILER WARNING: For those who haven’t watched Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, plot details will be revealed below.

The Gilmore Girls revival ended with creator Amy Sherman Palladino’s final four jaw-dropping words, which star Matt Czuchry had to protect ahead of the Nov. 25 debut.

Czuchry, 39, played Rory Gilmore’s (Alexis Bledel) college beau Logan Huntzberger on the original CW series and appears in all four episodes of the revival.

In A Year in the Life, audiences watch a rekindled (secret) romance between Rory and Logan years after she rejected his proposal, and at the end of the four-part revival, it is revealed that Rory is pregnant, presumably with Logan’s child.

But although Czuchry’s Logan is one of the major players in the dramedy series — and in Rory’s future — the words didn’t make the script. On Wednesday’s upcoming episode of Harry, Czuchry shared a story of a friend trying to “literally shake me down for these last four words” ahead of the series premiere on Netflix. While out to dinner with a married couple, Czuchry said the wife would read articles about the unknown “final four words” in advance and would then arrive at dinner and “read the article in front of my face and then just pause and stare at me.” Fortunately, Czhuchry had a strong poker face: “I wouldn’t break. She would be like, ‘That’s a really interesting reaction’ and I didn’t do anything. She was shaking me down the whole dinner.”

“Sometimes when you do a television show or film that is so secretive, they don’t even let the actors know, like in this case what those four words are. But you read all the scripts in advance,” host Harry Connick Jr. questioned Czuchry.

“I did, but the four words were never in the scripts,” Czuchry revealed.

The actor, who also starred on The Good Wife, told Entertainment Weekly prior to the Netflix debut that his and Rory’s character have a “special” ending at the wrap of the new episodes.

“In terms of where things are at the end of these four chapters for Logan and Rory, it’s pretty special. I’ll say that,” Czuchry said. “It’s very, very special.”

Numerous questions, including Rory’s relationship with Logan, were left unanswered — and leave Gilmore Girls fans hoping for another revival!

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is now streaming on Netflix.
