Great season opener tonight.
Luke said yes to Lorelai's marriage proposal and the people of Stars Hollow feel bad that he'll never get to have that 'romantic' moment. Luke then goes through a bunch of crap in trying to purchase an heirloom engagement ring.
Meanwhile Rory decides against returning to Yale. Luke, Paris, and Richard and Emily aren't happy about this, but Lorelai basically gives up; though Pairs makes Lorelai promise to be her support system this year now that her roommate won't be there. Rory goes to court for her role in stealing a yacht last season, where the lawyer that Richard had hired doesn't get the slap-on-the-wrist that he promised, and instead she receives 300 hours of community service and probation. Lorelai is very depressed.
