During Season 1 of “Bridgerton,” fans were completely taken with Daphne Bridgerton and Simon Basset’s love story. However, viewers were also intrigued by Colin Bridgerton’s life and Penelope Featherington’s unrequited love for the third-born Bridgerton sibling. Throughout the first episodes, fans were introduced to Colin and Penelope’s friendship (via CheatSheet). Although Penelope longed for a romance with Colin, he was taken aback by Marina Thompson, a young woman who had come to live with the Featherington family.
Once Penelope found out that Marina was pregnant and trying to trick Colin into marrying her so that she could pass the baby off as his, she knew she had to do something. Colin becomes infatuated with Marina, but when he learns that she is pregnant with another man’s baby thanks to Lady Whistledown (aka Penelope), things quickly change. The pair split, and a heartbroken Colin decided to leave London and travel the world, heading to Greece and leaving his family and Penelope behind (via Cinema Blend).
Season 2 will likely share more of Colin and Penelope’s relationship as it continues to blossom, but the show will more closely set its sights on Anthony during its new episodes. Critics might not be thrilled with “Bridgerton” Season 2, but we can’t wait to see it unfold.
