Gilmore Girls: The Scoop Behind That 'Elaborate' Life and Death Sequence

Gilmore Girls Revival

The following story contains spoilers from Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. Proceed at your own peril.

That breathtakingly cinematic Life and Death Brigade sequence in “Fall,” the closing chapter of Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, was every bit as ambitious as it looked, according to Tanc Sade, who plays Finn (arguably the secret society’s most eccentric member).

“We took a lot of time shooting that — it was done over a few months,” the actor revealed to me at the revival’s premiere earlier this month, adding that scheduling issues made the sequence even more challenging to execute. “I was shooting [Showtime]’s Roadies at the time” and Matt Czuchry (Logan) was still working on The Good Wife. “We were all working on other shows.”

As far as Czuchry is concerned, the ends more than justified the means. “The Life and Death Brigade stuff was my favorite stuff to do,” he enthused. “I think that captured the best of who Logan is, the best of who Rory is, and the best of who Rory and Logan are together.”
