Bad News for Rory and Dean Shippers? Jared Padalecki Says His Gilmore Girls Revival Scene Gave Him 'Closure'
The one thing Jared Padalecki is taking away from his brief stint on the new Gilmore Girls revival is “closure.”
But does that mean Rory and Dean shippers won’t get their happy ending?
Padalecki recently revealed that he returned to Stars Hollow for a brief scene, though he didn’t explicitly say whether he’s spending that scene with costar Alexis Bledel.
“I will say probably a lot more than I’m supposed to,” the actor said during a convention for his hit CW show Supernatural. “[Creator Amy Sherman-Palladino] basically said, ‘Listen, we’re going to write you a really cool scene and if you get a day off let us know we will just put your scene on the schedule for that day.’ She was like, ‘It’s a set that we already run and own [and] it’s an actress that already is working every day, so let us know.”
So, that actress could possibly be Bledel, who plays Rory.
“Dean has a cool scene in the market he used to work at,” teased Padalecki, 33. “It’s a nice, a really nice scene that gave me closure.”
Padalecki then said that his exit from the show was abrupt, so he didn’t get a chance to wrap his around the character’s fate.
“For me, I never had closure. One day I was an actor on Gilmore Girls and the next day I had a TV show and would never again be on Gilmore Girls,” he recalled to the crowd. “So for me, as a person, it was weird, because I was like ‘What about Dean?’ ”
“So it was fun to go wrap it up in a really cool way,” he added.
The Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life is set to land on Netflix later this year.
