Team Jess fans are absolutely flipping over the first tease of the fan favorite character in a brand-new photo uploaded by the official Gilmore Girls Instagram and it’s easy to see why!
In a fitting tribute to Stars Hollow’s resident misunderstood misfit, the social team behind Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life uploaded the most perfect image that harkens back to the days when viewers were just getting to know Jess.
The photo, posted on Tuesday (Sept. 13) features a close up of a book, but it’s the precise penmanship on the page that’s bound to catch the eye of astute Gilmore Girls fans.
The handwriting reads “I just wanted to put some notes in the margins for you.”
The fact that it’s coupled with, “Goodnight, Dodger” makes it an absolutely perfect reference to season 2, episode 5.
Who could forget the moment in “Nick & Nora/Sid & Nancy” when Jess revealed to Rory that he’d plucked her copy of Alan Ginsberg’s Howl after a disastrous dinner at the Gilmore’s in order to annotate it.
Considering that episode marked the first time viewers learned that Jess was actually pretty smart, it definitely ranks among one of our top favorite Jess moments of all time.
We can’t wait to see just how big of a role Jess ends up having in the revival!
Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life premieres on Netflix Friday, Nov. 25.
