The Nine Alignments of Gilmore Girls

The Nine Alignments of Gilmore Girls

A while back, Holly was re-watching Gilmore Girls so I caught a lot of it as well. So many of the characters function as caricatures or archetypes – especially in the eyes of other characters – that I started thinking about this alignment grid. I hadn’t made it and moved on, but now we’re watching the concluding season on NetFlix, and I was reminded of it.

These alignments are all more in relation to one another and internal to the show, as there’s plenty of shades of grey in the show but not really a lot of evil (or good?). Mistakes are made. It’s a thing. But hopefully the alignment grid makes sense… what do you think? Let me know!
