In the Slate Plus bonus segment of Wednesday’s edition of the Culture Gabfest, Gilmore Girls actor Chris Eigeman chats with hosts Stephen Metcalf, Seth Stevenson, and Julia Turner about the much-beloved show’s reunion on Netflix.

In the show’s fourth season, Chris originally played Jason, who was one of Lorelai’s paramours (and one of Luke’s rivals). What was it like for him to return for the revival of the series, and what was it like to get the entire key cast together again? What question is Stephen dying to ask Chris about the show?


Lastly—was the ending of the show satisfying? And what do the hosts think of the last four words?
