Even though Rory and Lorelai were incredibly close and loved spending time together, Lorelai pampered Rory. Lorelai has fought most of Rory’s battles and she has never had to go through any real adversity.

In the second season, Rory warned Lorelai that she pampered her too much and that she was never going to learn more about the real world because of it. It foreshadowed Rory’s future during his college days and beyond. Rory aged badly when she found herself struggling when things didn’t turn out the way she did and didn’t handle criticism well.

In one scene, Lorelai and Rory are at Luke’s Diner but Rory can barely stay awake. In order to keep her alert, the two played a game they called “1, 2, 3, it’s yours.” In the game, Lorelai had to choose the first, second, or third random guy that came her way. If she denied the first guy, she assumes the second guy would be better than the first, and so on.

Some of Rory’s biggest mistakes happened at Yale as she began to rebuild her friendship with Dean. To prove that the two were civilians, he delivered a library to Rory in his dormitory. It was there that they talked about their future and Rory found out that Dean was taking time off from college.

Rory was furious that Dean was choosing a life with Lindsay over education. She told him that those who took breaks from school never go back or find it difficult to return after too much time away. Ironically, it was Rory who took time off from college and found herself in a downward spiral. His warning to Dean foreshadowed his own future.

Paris and Rory didn’t always get along, especially when they were in high school. In Chilton, Paris was too competitive with Rory to appreciate the friend she was. When the time came for Chilton to pick a promotion major, Rory won the honor instead of Paris.

They stopped at Miss Patty’s where Lorelai, Christopher, Rory and Dean got together roped up for a mini dance class. At that time, the series focused heavily on the timeline of Rory’s relationship with Dean, so it was surprising that they didn’t have rhythm or connection. Miss Patty commented on how well Christopher and Lorelai were in sync, but it wasn’t the same for Rory and Dean. This moment foreshadowed that Dean and Rory were never meant for each other and that they didn’t have the rhythm.

It wasn’t any nicer than Lorelai spending Rory’s first night at Yale with her in the dorm. Both women were nervous about their new start, so it was fitting that they spent their first night at Yale as a unit.

Adorably, Lorelai saw this happen in the early seasons. Lorelai didn’t want Rory to spend the night next door. Rory reminded Lorelai that someday she would have to go to college and Lorelai would have to get ready. Lorelai said to her daughter, “I will come with you, I will sleep on the floor in your dormitory, next to your bed.” Years later, Lorelai’s statement came true.

Lorelai never ended up marrying Max, but she married Christopher, who tried to get her to eat French food. The two got married in France and when she craved a burger he brought her some French food. It was as if Luke had called him before it happened.

In Season 3, Paris and Rory were part-time enemies and fought at student body meetings because Paris didn’t trust Rory. Director Charleston had a meeting with the two of them and warned Rory about his future. He said, “I would advise you to think long and hard before accepting any responsibility if you intend to run away at the first sign of conflict. Her words bothered Rory because she didn’t see herself that way. But fast forward to his time at Yale, that’s exactly what happened.

After his internship with Mitchum Huntzberger ended, he told Rory that she didn’t have what it took to be a journalist. His words hurt her, she stole a yacht, was arrested and left Yale. Did Director Charleston foreshadow the future?
