It’s been two years since we were introduced to the Bridgertons and Lady Whistledown. Finally, the historical drama is back on our screens, with more romance and scandal than ever.
After Daphne and Simon finally confessed their true feelings and tied the knot in Season 1, Season 2 will center around another Bridgerton’s search for love and will follow the same structure as the books.
However, fans are dying to know who Benedict – the second oldest Bridgerton brother – is destined to marry and whether the questions raised about his sexuality in the final chapter will be followed up.
Who does Benedict marry?
In Julia Quinn’s third Bridgerton book, An Offer From a Gentleman, Benedict eventually marries Sophia “Sophie” Beckett.
In the series, on the other hand, Season 2 explores the love story of Anthony rather than Benedict.
It’s a love story very similar to Disney’s Cinderella story. Benedict meets a mysterious girl at a masked ball and quickly falls head over heels in love with her. However, to his great dismay, she flees the party at midnight, leaving only a gauntlet to help Benedict find her.
Two years later, Benedict saves Sophia from a group of men and offers her a job, unaware that this is his lost love. Benedict wrestles with his feelings for Sophia and his longing for the masked girl and finally decides to propose to Sophia.
Luckily, Netflix has already renewed Bridgerton for seasons 3 and 4, so hopefully fans will be able to see this epic love story on screen for years to come.
The Bridgerton brother’s sexuality has been investigated
Unfortunately, those who campaigned for an LGBT Benedict storyline this season will be disappointed as the Bridgerton brother takes a liking to a girl he meets at art school.
It is never explicitly stated in season 1 that Benedict questions his sexuality. Although there seems to be some tension between him and Henry Granville in some scenes, it is later revealed that he is in a secret relationship with a man.
Speak with Digital Spy Ahead of the Season 2 release, Kathryn Drysdale, who plays Love Interest Genevieve, said:
“There’s a world where people openly explored their sexuality, and there was no shame in it. And I don’t know if Benedict just has his own sexual journey and his own creative journey. I don’t really know if that will lead him down that path or not.”
Season 2: What to Expect
The second part of Bridgerton follows Anthony Bridgerton as he breaks up with his lover Sienna and finally decides it’s time to find a wife.
Anthony quickly falls in love with Kate, whose only goal is to find a husband for her half-sister Edwina.
The Queen names Edwina the Diamond of the Debutante Season, leading Anthony to target her as his bride.
Lady Whistledown will be relieved of her work as a love triangle develops between the three.
Season 2 of Bridgerton was released on Netflix on March 25thth and all eight episodes are available now.
