She begins the journey, but has an epiphany and calls her mother to share a warm recollection of her father; she and Emily reconcile.
Abandoning her plan for the hike, Lorelai returns to Stars Hollow and proposes marriage to Luke, and the two marry in November 2016.
In Stars Hollow, she meets Mia, the owner of the Independence Inn.
Lorelai Victoria Gilmore, played by Lauren Graham, is the only daughter of Richard and Emily Gilmore. She became pregnant at the age of 16 but refused to marry Christopher Hayden, Rory's father, because she felt that a marriage at such a young age would not work out.
Instead, she ran away to the town of Stars Hollow, which is half an hour away from Hartford.
Throughout most of the seventh and final season of the show, they aren't together because Lorelai starts dating and then marries Christopher, but she and Christopher break up about mid-way through the season.
Lorelai and Luke presumably get back together at the end of the season, as she kisses him at Rory's farewell party and the next morning, wears the necklace he gave her as she and Rory eat breakfast at the diner.
Some of her favorite movies are The Way We Were, His Girl Friday, Funny Face, and Casablanca, which she claims has "no bad parts." She is also addicted to coffee, takeout food, and she loves to shop for clothes and shoes.
When her father gives her a check for ,000 because the government was building a road on a property that Richard bought under her name, she exclaims, "That's 150 pairs of Jimmy Choos!Lorelai is very witty and full of pop culture references.She has a very specific taste in movies, music, and TV." Lorelai and the local diner owner, Luke Danes, have a close relationship throughout the show but don't start dating until the fifth season.They broke up due to the meddling of her mother and her ex, Christopher.Furthermore, Rory, by this time, has been accepted to Yale, and has been denied financial aid due to Lorelai receiving a one-time investment payout given to her by her father (see below).
