What started as a regular Sunday night of "Gilmore Girls" trivia at Videology Bar and Cinema in Williamsburg turned into a night spent worshipping the former show's creators — who surprised guests by showing up.
Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino, the brains behind the chatty cast of characters at Stars Hollow, Conn., told a fan they read about the trivia night in a magazine. (It was also highlighted as one of DNAinfo's top things to do in Brooklyn last weekend.)
Apparently the pair didn't think anyone would be there, underestimating the reach of their beloved WB show, which has conquered many new hearts since being added to Netflix.
The Palladinos were in for a surprise since there was a line out the door — and many Gillys (unofficial name for fans of the show) couldn't even get in.
The creators happily posed for photos with fans, and even fielded questions from the night's hosts about the show.
Fans posting about it on social media said the Palladinos, who left "Gilmore Girls" in its final season resulting in the show's terrible final season, chatted about Lorelai, Rory, Luke, Sookie and the rest of the gang throughout the entire night.
It's unclear if they agreed to a "Gilmore Girls" movie.
Sometimes you spontaneously go to Gilmore Girls trivia on a Sunday night and meet the woman who helped get you through high school, the creator of Lorelai and Rory Gilmore, Amy Sherman-Palladino! ❤️❤️ #starshollow
