Synopsis by Hal Erickson
It's hardly a holly-jolly Christmas for Christopher (David Sutcliffe), now more convinced than ever that Lorelai (Lauren Graham) married him only to get over her relationship with Luke (Scott Patterson). Thus, when Emily (Kelly Bishop) plans to have the couple repeat their vows at a lavish party, chances are that neither Lorelai nor Christopher will even show up. Elsewhere, Luke begins legal action to claim partial custody of daughter April, then has a public confrontation with Christopher which does a neat job of shattering the town's Yuletide cheer (to say nothing of the Town Square decorations!) And Lucy (Krysten Ritter) finally finds out about the "history" between Rory (Alexis Bledel) and Marty (Wayne Wilcox). This episode was directed by series regular Jackson Douglas (Jackson Melville).
