    After All These Years, We See That Mysterious "Gilmore Girls" Character In The Revival

    It's been 84 years... (Warning: Spoilers within, obvs.)

    We were left with many unanswered questions after the 2007 Gilmore Girls series finale, but none loomed larger than one: Where the fuck was Mr. Kim all these years?

    Warner Bros. Television

    He was referred to multiple times over the course of the show, but we NEVER SAW HIM. We were left to assume he was a living spirit with no corporeal form.

    He didn't even walk Lane down the aisle at her wedding.

    HOWEVER, in the second episode of the Gilmore Girls revival, "Spring," Lane and Rory are hanging out at the Stars Hollow International Festival, helping Mrs. Kim with the Korean food station.

    Then, Lane just looks to her left right, and casually SEES HER FATHER.
