Everything in Bridgerton works for anyone looking for escapism. The sets, the costumes, the romantic plot, the drama, the suspense, and the solution to the disagreements. Each season, the series will focus on one of the brothers in the family, with first we saw Daphne and now we follow Anthony to find a wife and love.
Anthony Bridgerton is the eldest son of the Bridgertons and is responsible for the family’s fortune and name, need to ensure that – with a good marriage – the bloodline continues. The problem is, he’s terrified of falling in love and now we finally understand why, it’s touching.
And of course, now he’s finally found his soul mate in the figure of the equally complicated Kate Sharma. It’s not her he initially plans to marry, but his sister, but their relationship gets tangled up to the point that it’s undeniably a reissue of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy, of Pride and Prejudice. Who can resist?
