Season 5 of Gilmore Girls, an American dramedy television series, aired on the WB television network.
Lorelai and Rory face major life changes in this unforgettable fifth season. Lorelai is happy owning and operating an inn with best friend Sookie, but quickly learns the demands of being the boss. A bigger surprise is that her longtime friendship with Luke has become a romance. Lorelai and Luke try to hide their relationship, but the town soon knows they are dating. The reappearance of Rory's father, Christopher, adds to the drama.
Rory's romantic life is also complicated; at the forefront is her relationship with Dean—who is now married. In her second year at Yale Rory is more involved in the college newspaper and meets Logan, who comes from the same old-money world as her grandparents. Rory could be on the path of her dreams—or is she?
