In the fifth-season opener, Rory’s feelings for Dean deepen, creating a rift between her and Lorelai, who already has her hands full with her growing attraction to Luke and Emily’s unhappiness with Richard. Picking up on the same night as last season’s finale, Lorelai is very upset that Rory has lost her virginity to her married ex-boyfriend Dean. Luke is happy and relieved to learn that Lorelai wants to pursue their new romantic relationship. Meanwhile, after announcing that she and Richard are officially separated, Emily decides to leave immediately for Paris. Realizing that Dean’s marriage may not be over after all, Rory agrees to spend the summer in Europe with Emily.
