Madeline Albright was her mother in the dream - does Rory think that her mother is in the same mould as Madeline Albright? Or what? I thought M.A. was going to have a bigger role in the show. Spoiler info made it sound like she was the impetus for Rory to go back to school. Hmmm.
Great episode. Humour mixed with pathos.
I don't think next week is a new episode. The preview said "in upcoming weeks" and I know a lot of shows are taking a bit of a break right now. I dislike Jess, myself. But if he gets Rory back on track Richard will probably throw him a parade.
