Contains spoilers for episodes 1-4 of Bridgerton season three.The first half of Bridgerton season three has arrived on Netflix, and over four tense episodes, young Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) has finally realised that he is in love with his best friend, Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan).The fourth episode ended with the pair having a steamy encounter in her carriage, followed by Colin asking Penelope to marry him.That’s all very lovely – although we have to wait until June 13 when episode five is streamed to hear her answer – but there is one very big dark cloud that could cast gloom over their potential nuptials: Colin has no idea that Penelope is the writer of the Lady Whistledown gossip pages that send the ton into a frenzy whenever they are published.

Already in this season Colin has expressed his disgust at Lady Whistledown’s gossiping, especially as the Bridgerton family has been subject to her fiery opinions on more than one occasion.

In the first episode, Colin catches his sister Eloise reading the gossip paper and tells her that “after nearly ruining you last season, I will never forgive her.” Of course, Eloise knows that Pen is Lady Whistledown, so she asks Colin if he has any idea who the writer could be.

He has no clue, but declares: “Trust me, if I ever find out, I shall make sure it is her life that is ruined.” That doesn’t exactly bode well for the two lovebirds, but if the Julia Quinn novels on which the series is based are anything to go by, the couple could still get their happy ending – even if Colin does discover Penelope’s secret identity.
