She’s not just “a” Gilmore Girl, she’s THE Gilmore girl.
As I’m sure many of you can understand, I watched an absurd amount of my favorite old TV shows in 2020 and 2021. More recently I finished reviewing every episode of Gilmore Girls, and that led me to just one conclusion: Emily Gilmore is perhaps the most underrated (?) iconic TV character of all time.
With that in mind, I’ve rounded up some of the best moments from the Matriarch of the Gilmore family for your viewing pleasure! So here are a few times Emily was the best Gilmore Girl of all the Gilmore Girls:
