5 ‘Gilmore Girls’ Characters Who Inexplicably Disappeared, but We Wish They Hadn’t

Throughout its seven-season run, Gilmore Women launched quite a lot of totally different characters. Some had endurance, whereas others didn’t. We perceive that generally a personality needed to be written off, even when they have been vital to Rory or Lorelai Gilmore. Nonetheless, there have been some deserted Gilmore Women characters that we might have liked to see extra of or, on the very least, had their sudden absence buttoned up. 

The thriller of Dwight’s well-being will hang-out us perpetually 

Dwight appeared in precisely one episode of Gilmore Women. He bought a house straight subsequent to Lorelai and Rory Gilmore and appeared excited to combine into the group. “Eight O’Clock at the Oasis” was centered virtually completely round Dwight, after which he was gone. 

From our standpoint, Dwight went away on a enterprise journey and by no means returned to Stars Hole. Contemplating the extremely aggressive message his ex-wife left on his answering machine, we really feel like somebody ought to have gone in search of Dwight. Wherever Dwight is, we hope he’s OK. 

We assume ‘Gilmore Girls’ followers should know what turned of Francie Jarvis 

Francie Jarvis was the one particular person in Chilton who wasn’t afraid of Paris Geller. For that, we type of liked Francie. She was additionally the one particular person in Chilton who was colder than Paris Geller, and for that, we type of hated her. Nonetheless, the chief of the puffs was an attention-grabbing character who simply vanished into skinny air.

Certain, we get it. Francie disappeared from Gilmore Women when everybody graduated from Chilton, but we might have appreciated to seek out out the place she was headed earlier than she fully evaporated. In truth, it will have been enjoyable to see her pop up on occasion at Yale simply to make Paris’ life somewhat extra sophisticated. 

Tana and Janet have been ‘Gilmore Girls’ characters that didn’t have to fall off the face of the earth 

Transferring a predominant character into a brand new surroundings and introducing extra characters to populate that surroundings is all the time difficult. When Rory Gilmore entered faculty, the quickest approach to introduce new individuals was to provide her quirky new roommates. Tana Schrick and Janet Billings actually match the invoice, and we appreciated the stress they delivered to the present. 

Sadly, when the freshman foursome moved out of their dorm, the duo was hardly seen once more. Janet appeared simply as soon as extra in season 5 of Gilmore Women, indicating she nonetheless attended Yale. Tana and her boyfriend, Chester, have been by no means spoken of once more, although. We’d have appreciated to see how the remainder of their faculty expertise labored out. 

Alex Lesman’s gradual fade of Lorelai Gilmore nonetheless annoys us 

Alex Lesman actually appeared like match for Lorelai Gilmore. The enterprise proprietor was cultured, liked espresso, and had a laidback vibe that complimented Lorelai’s extra manic power. Their relationship was not meant to be, although. After a brief stint as a pair, Alex disappeared, by no means to be heard from once more.

Don’t get us incorrect. We don’t assume Alex was the one for Lorelai. In truth, we might have been comfortable to see them break up ultimately. We simply hate the way it occurred or didn’t occur. Alex Lesman slowly light out of Lorelai Gilmore’s life, which feels extremely unsatisfying. We wished there to be extra to Alex’s story.
