Bridgerton season 3 part 1 recap

The first part of the show concluded with the steamy confession of Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton), who realized his true feelings toward the girl he once said he would never court, Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan). The scene inside the carriage spotlights the two making out, and as the carriage arrives at the doorstep of the Bridgerton house, Colin asks Penelope to marry him. “For God’s sake, Penelope Featherington. Are you going to marry me or not?” he says. Looks like a happy ending, right? But wait, because the famous scene from Julia Quinn’s novel is far from a peaceful ending. Jess Brownell, the showrunner, has made some explosive revelations to The Hollywood Reporter explaining the fate of the season 3 couple.

Eloise to play big part in Bridgerton season 3

The only person besides one or two who knows Penelope's secret is her former best friend and Bridgerton girl, Eloise. This means the trouble is far from over for Penelope's romance with Colin. “It certainly gets harder to keep a secret as soon as one person knows, and now Eloise knows,” says Brownell. “I think there’s also a part of Penelope, who in her journey toward stepping into the light, wants Colin to know her full self. And I think she knows that until he knows she’s Whistledown, she can never be fully seen by him,” he continues.

The maker of the show said that they purposefully kept the Polin rom-com in the first part because the second part is going to be quite intense. Eloise has no idea about her brother and her neighbour's feelings, making it even more complicated. In the first part, Colin swore to ruin the life of Lady Whistledown, unaware that the girl he loves is the same person. And so, the heightened tension between the trio is inevitable.

It’s been two seasons and we’ve seen the tension between them.” As for Luke Thompson's story, the team thinks it’s too early to let the character settle down, he’s so full of passion and adventure.
