Jared Padalecki, Alexis Bledel, Gilmore Girls

You might've seen a spoiler about the upcoming Gilmore Girls revival floating around the internet. If you haven't, here's the deal: Wait, do you need a spoiler warning? We just said we're talking about a spoiler so that probably should've tipped you off. But if not, SPOILERS AHEAD.

Anyway, actor David Sutcliffe, who plays Rory's father, Christopher, revealed a very juicy tidbit about who his TV daughter (Alexis Bledel) WON'T end up with in the new series.

"You know, I liked all the young actors that played her boyfriends. I know they're not going to end up together but Rory and Dean seem like a good couple," he told USA Today.

SOUND THE ALARMS! Rory and Dean won't end up together?!?!?!

Hold your horses, people. We already knew that Jared Padalecki only returned for a single scene in the show.

"[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,'" he told the audience at a recent Supernatural convention. "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 Dean has a cool scene in the market he used to work at. It's a nice, a really nice scene that gave me closure."

How could Rory and Dean be together for real if they only have one scene in Doose's together?

Further proof that Dean and Rory aren't a thing: One of the new characters was initially described as a 30-something "good boyfriend" Michael Cera type—if that doesn't scream "Rory's boyfriend" then what does?

Hate to break it to you, but Rory and Dean are not going to be together in the future. And that's okay! She could end up with someone else we totally love. She could end up with someone we know quite well! Either way, we have four 90-minute episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life headed our way soon. Thanks, Netflix!
