    Let’s hope there’s no awkwardness in the GG reunion

    • Tim says:

      I know! they must have made up.

      • Sam says:

        Who? Scott and Lauren?

        • Hannah-Maree says:

          Alexis and Milo, they used to date and apparently it ended badly.

          • B says:

            Didn’t they date for a really long time? I want to say they started around season three and were still together after the show ended. Awkward.

          • mollytanner says:

            This is why I wonder we never get a Felicity reunion. Do Scott Speedman and Keri Russell hate each other?

          • B says:

            For some reason it won’t let me reply to you, mollytanner, but no they don’t. Keri mentioned in an interview about taking the job on The Americans that she had called him about it and he told her “Dude, you have to take it!” So I assume they are good.

          • sarah says:

            Alexis and Milo dated for 3 1/2 years. They ended it over 9 years ago, so I can’t see any problem with them being in the same room. Do you know them personally, Hannah-Maree because if you don’t then how do you know how it ended?

    • KSM says:

      She is married, so I am guessing she is probably over it.

  2. Et al says:

    Is this panel going to be streamed? It’s shaping up to be the best thing that has ever happened.

  3. Jennifer says:

    Is this going to be available online or streamed? I would love to see this. Also, who in the cast won’t be there?? I think it will be a shorter list.

    • Will says:

      In a previous article they (or a commentor) mentioned it would be streaming online though I’m not sure where.. also Melissa McCarthy (Sookie) does not appear to be returning for the reunion.

      • Cyndi says:

        Melissa McCarthy is probably too busy promoting her new movie Spy. I’m worried about Jared Padalecki. I read he’s sufferung through exhaustion and hasn’t been to any of the Supernatural conventions for at least a couple weeks.

    • Emily says:

      I’m pretty sure EW is streaming it (they are the ones hosting it.)

  4. Riana says:

    Now he just needs to join the Heroes Reunion

  5. Patrick says:

    I hope Padelecki shows up.

  6. Linda says:

    I wonder if Jared is actually still going or not. I really hope so but with Milo just joining, I wonder if Jared will cancel now that they have a ‘replacement’.

  7. c-mo says:

    They could almost just go ahead and film the GG reunion movie this weekend at the panel, all they really need is Melissa and Jared! Anyone lucky enough to go really lives a charmed life and I’m quite jealous!

  8. Joey Padron says:

    happy Children’s Hospital will be coming back for another season! this season been good.

  9. sarah says:

    Actually the Gilmore panel is on Saturday June 6th, not on Sunday. I think E news is streaming it live.

  10. Engineeress says:

    Will we see another Jess/Dean fight?

  11. lola says:

    Best news i’ve heard all day! Can’t wait to see Milo in the panel! This is going to be great!

  12. Linda says:

    How can we see this panel?

  13. Kate says:

    I was reading through the list and thinking “That’s the whole cast!” and then I remembered Edward Hermann and now I want to cry.

    • Nan says:

      ITA EH will be missed. There’s no mention of Michael DeLouise [TJ], Sally Struthers [Babette], David Sutcliffe [Christopher], Rose Adobo [Gypsy], Sebastian Bach [Gil], Vanessa Marano [April], Michael Winter [Taylor], Todd Lowe [Zach] etc., so maybe they won’t be there.

  14. So Sookie can’t make it, huh…

  15. L says:

    Rory should have ended up with Jess, he was the only one who really knew her and knew who she was supposed to become. They had the deepest and realest connection, it so should have ended with them together.

  16. Tv fan says:

    Yay! I love Rory/Jess!!

    I hope they’ll be civil with each other I guess they should be professional

  17. CJ says:

    Ive never kicked myself so many times for not hitting “purchase tix” the day I checked out the festival site, the first round of tix were still available and they had just announced the reunion. Very hopeful it will be easy to track down the recording!
