    Amy Sherman-Palladino, the show’s creator, has always known what the final four words of the show were going to be. Tragically, Sherman-Palladino (and the final four words) left before the series finale in 2007.

    And now with the series revival, we are officially going to find out what they are. However, cast members are a little vague and divided on how satisfied fans are going to be.

    Lauren Graham (Lorelai) revealed to Entertainment Weekly that the final four words are split between two characters and are "not as resolved as [she] thought they would be." Alexis Bledel (Rory) said the final line "kind of, hmm, it does kind of throw you."

    SO WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN? Are the final four words really split between two characters? Is this all an elaborate scheme to throw us off the scent? We asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share their best guesses with us. Here are some of their theories about what final four words in Gilmore Girls will actually be:
