We're left with plenty of lingering questions now that we've all had a chance to watch all four episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, but at a SAG-AFTRA panel on Tuesday, Nov. 29, Lauren Graham weighed in on one of the more pressing issues from the revival: what the heck was up with the Gilmores' treatment of Rory's poor, neglected boyfriend, Paul (Jack Carpenter)?
Instead of an actual character, Paul was more a punchline than anything. The Ann Veal of Gilmore Girls, if you will. (Raise your hand if you're now mad about the missed opportunity for an Ann/egg/bland joke with Mae Whitman here. Come on!) But Graham said that she hasn't really read any of the feedback about the Gilmores' negative treatment of him.
