Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The only good news that Rory (Alexis Bledel) receives this week comes from the unlikeliest of sources: her biological father Christopher (David Sutcliffe). Meanwhile, Luke (Scott Patterson) continues adjusting to the fact that he's the father of 12-year-old April -- and also continues to avoid telling Lorelai (Lauren Graham). Elsewhere, Luke's wacky sister Liz (Kathleen Wilhoite) goes "Martha Stewart" for Thanksgiving; and Lane's band is on the verge of breaking up as Brian (John Cabrera) seethes with jealousy over the song that Zach (Todd Lowe) has written for Lane (Keiko Agena). Carole King returns in the role of bookstore manager Sophie.
