Maybe he returns to his long-suffering wife Lindsay (Arielle Kebbel), although given that he cheated on her with Rory, Lindsay has hopefully moved on by now.For those who prefer Rory’s second boyfriend, Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), or her third boyfriend, Logan (Matt Czuchry), the news from Sutcliffe narrows the playing field a little, but raises a host of questions about Rory’s love life.

, Sutcliffe revealed that he's always been partial to Dean, Rory’s first of three boyfriends in the series, and many a fan-favorite.

Unfortunately, his personal opinion held no sway in the outcome of the series, because Sutcliffe continued, "I know they’re not going to end up together, but Rory and Dean seem like a good couple." Please cue the breaking of every Team Dean member's heart.

While plot details from the revival have mostly been kept under wraps, we do know that all three of Rory’s exes are returning to the show.

Based on Sutcliffe’s comment; however, we can only hope for a brief tryst between Rory and Dean, versus a long-lasting coupling.

"But she's dating like any young woman with that face would be." But of course...

Whether Jess (Milo Ventimiglia), Logan (Matt Czuchry), or Dean (Jared Padalecki)—her major boyfriends in the original TV series—are among the people she's dating, Sherman-Palladino can't say.

"Deals are not done yet," she admitted with a laugh.

She may very well end up with someone else entirely, given that the revival will comprise of four movie-length episodes, providing plenty of time for Rory to meet and fall in love with a new person.

Until the series returns (Netflix has yet to announce a release date), all we can do is wonder about Rory's romantic future—except for members of Team Dean.
