Logan Huntzberger, played by Matt Czuchry, isn’t the Gilmore Girls’ most famous character. Not in the original series, and not in Gilmore Girls: A Year in Life on Netflix. But that doesn’t mean there haven’t been times when Logan enjoyed the fans.
During Valentine’s Day, Logan Huntzberger covered for Luke Danes.
For the weekend with Luke Danes (Scott Patterson) and Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) in Gilmore Girls season 6 episode 15: “A Vineyard Valentine.” Rory Gilmore (Alexis Bledel) and Logan went to Martha’s Vineyard. The foursome had a nice time after a bit of a bumpy start for Luke and Lorelai.
But things became tricky when Logan told Luke that at dinner he was going to do “the gift thing” Luke admitted that Lorelai did not have a Valentine’s Day present. Logan said he couldn’t, and he gave one of the two presents he had bought for Rory to give Luke.
Luke reluctantly accepted and decided to give a diamond collar to Lorelai.
Touched that Luke gave her a gift for Valentine’s Day, Lorelai could not help but note that the gifts from her and Rory looked identical.
And she sat in bed later in the episode holding the necklace and worrying about Luke, which almost suggested to the audience that there was something wrong with the gift.

The episode, which originally aired on Feb. 14, 2006, wasn’t exactly a high point for Luke, but some of the redeeming qualities of Logan were seen. After Luke had not been very kind to him, Logan even aided him.

The relaxing weekend in the same episode went down the drain just as soon as it began. A surprise visit to Martha’s Vineyard came from Logan’s father, Mitchum Huntzberger (Gregg Henry).
In front of Luke, Lorelai and Rory, he and Logan got into a heated argument. It ended up with Logan and his father leaving Martha’s Vineyard. Meanwhile, Rory realized that, after graduation, her boyfriend would leave her and go to London, England.
The statement revealed a different side of Logan for Lorelai – and the audience. With his broken relationship with his father, Lorelai was able to empathize.
