Today’s gif set will be late, just FYI!
Close! He was Mick when he showed up to install DSL for Rory and Lorelai in EP2 :)
Kirk’s history is one of the biggest flubs in the whole show. I mean, I think everyone’s backstories change several times, but his seems to be the worst. At first the actor played other characters that just seem to work in SH, and then he formally became Kirk but Miss Patty acted like she’d never met him before (in 1x15, I think it is), despite everyone later claiming they’ve known him his whole life.
From there, every time his history gets mentioned, it seems to be different. I’ve tried to compile all mentions of the characters’ back stories in the character tags but I may have missed some notes. I wasn’t tracking them too consistently in the beginning.
