20 Day Rory/Jess challenge
Day 11. A scene that made you sad.
“I love you.”, episode 4x13
RORY: You know, I have actually thought about this moment. A lot. What would Jess say to me I ever saw him again? I mean, he just took off, no note, no call, nothing, how could he explain that? And then a year goes by. No word, nothing, so he couldn’t possibly have a good excuse for that, right? I have imagined hundreds of different scenarios with a hundred different great last parting lines, and I have to tell you that I am actually very curious to see which way this is going to go.
JESS: Could we sit down?
RORY: No. You wanted to talk, so talk. What do you have to say to me?
[Jess pauses a second.]
JESS: I love you.
[Rory stares after him as Jess walks away, gets into his car and drives away.]
Do I have to explain why this moment made me sad? ç_____ç Rory’s words. She’s so angry, and upset, she felt abandoned and betrayed for almost an year. She has all the reasons to yell at Jess, to let all her frustrations finally go out. And Jess. He’s so disarming. He has just one answer. He loves her. He knows that and he finally confess his love to her. But it’s too late. Can you hear the pieces of my shattered heart falling on the floor? ç____ç
