In the spirit of the highly anticipated Gilmore Girls revival (which will be a four-part movie), I think it is an appropriate time to praise Rory’s best boyfriend on the show, Logan Huntzberger. I hear lots about Team Dean and Team Jess when it comes to Rory’s love interests, but my fave will always be Team Logan. So here are the top moments that will go down in television history as the best Rory and Logan moments.
1. That time they jumped off a platform and gracefully fell like Mary Poppins.
Even though this was a slightly far-fetched “okay Hollywood” moment, it was still pretty bad ass and adventurous. What girl doesn’t want a man with a little spontaneity?
2. The moment he decided to stop with the whole friends with benefits thing and commit.
The guy literally “didn’t do” girlfriends until he met Rory. I mean that’s sweet. Jess was never good at being a boyfriend, and Logan picked up on it pretty quickly.
3. When he told off his family when they were being total jerks.
4. The Birkin Bag.
Like Rory, I had no idea what the hell a birkin bag was, so naturally I googled it to see what the deal was, and wow! Need I say more?
5. When Rory was mad at him and he asked Lorelei to talk to her.
6. When he moved to London and gave her a rocket.
Even though it was the most confusing gift ever, the meaning behind it was beyond romantic.
7. When Logan went to Stars Hollow for the first time.
Probably my favorite episode ever, because the entire thing was adorable and perfect. The fact that he was so intrigued by Taylor and all the other unique things about the town, showed that he was totally in love with her. Stars Hollow is a weird place, and a lot of guys (like Jess) would have hated town things like the Spring Fling. Dean loved them a little too much and probably will still be in the Hollow in the revival.
8. When he showed up at the hospital when her grandpa had a heart attack.
Talk about a knight in shining armour. Jess was always leaving Rory, even when she needed him. Logan flew in on a helicopter from wherever he was and dropped whatever business thing he was doing, just to be there for her and her family.
9. When he asked Lorelei for Rory’s hand in marriage.
10. When he asked Rory to marry him.
Probably the most disappointing thing was her saying no, but I understand why she would – considering she just graduated. He still loved her even after she said no, and seeing his charming smile turn to a frown was heartbreaking.
These ten moments sum up what I’ve said since Logan first appeared on the show – he’s the best. Dean and Jess were cute in the high school days, but Logan totally has forever potential. Here’s hoping Logan Huntzberger makes the ultimate come back in the revival and wins Rory’s heart.

I totally agree with you! Logan is the best match for Rory considering everything that she is. He is mature and brave enough for her in most ways. Where he is weak, she compliments it with with strength. He also respects her mom as shown by the “best moments” selected above. I would like him for Rory if I were her mother. I am confident of her good future with him. Go Logan & Rory!!!
I love love love me some Logan! I couldn’t agree more that he is the perfect match for Rory. He totally gets her and he matured so much by the series finale. I’m hoping to see a Logan-Rory reunion!
i love logan too — hate jess – rem he wanted rory to drop out of yale and go live with him… with logan she is perfect – same newspaper life – gilmore but adventurous – he brought out the best in her – he loved her parties – jess didnt even participate with her. he was very well read –
oh i can go on and on
Most disappointing ending ever! After we see Logan and Rory develop over the years in their relationship and seeing how they they truly love each other and what a great guy Logan was to Rory, what a fool she was not to marry someone like him who was always there for her! Would have been a perfect ending for them to have sealed the deal and show how working on relationships get you to that sweet moment..no wonder she turned out so bad in the revival…
