Bridgerton Season 3: Expectations
There is each new season of Bridgerton has focused on the romance of different members of the Bridgerton family. In the third season, the story and romance of Lady Penelope Featherington and Colin Bridgerton are the main focus.
Penelope has finally unveiled her long-held crush on Colin after hearing his disparaging words about her last season. She has decided it’s time to take a husband, preferably one who will provide her with enough independence to continue her double life as Lady Whistledown, far away from her mother and sisters. But lacking in confidence, Penelope’s attempts on the marriage mart fail spectacularly.
Meanwhile, Colin has returned from his summer and is travelling with a new look and a serious sense of swagger. But he’s disheartened to realize that Penelope, the one person who always appreciated him as he was, is giving him the cold shoulder.
Eager to win back her friendship, Colin offers to mentor Penelope in the ways of confidence to help her find a husband this season. But when his lessons start working a little too well, Colin must grapple with whether his feelings for Penelope are truly just friendly. The complication that matters for Penelope is her rift with Eloise, who has found a new friend in a very unlikely place, while Penelope’s growing presence in the ton makes it all the more difficult to keep her Lady Whistledown’s alter ego a secret.
