“Bridgerton”: Nobody noticed these clues
Bridgerton had a great secret: Who is Lady Whistledown? There were SO MANY clues to their identity!
Who is Lady Whistledown? Before the season finale of “Bridgerton”, there was already enough evidence!
“Bridgerton” has long since established itself on Netflix as the biggest series ever! So it’s no wonder that after just one season, seasons 2-4 are already secured. In addition to the love story between Daphne Bridgerton and Duke Simon von Hastings, there was another reason to look for the series: The question of who Lady Whistledown is, who apparently knows every secret of the characters! The mystery was solved at the end of season 1, but there were enough signs of who was behind the name. The fans are discovering more and more that were deliberately placed by the creators of the series! ATTENTION: Spoilers for everyone who hasn’t finished watching “Bridgerton” (what are you waiting for ?!
Lady Whistledown’s identity was suggested over and over again
Throughout the season, fans have wondered who the mysterious Lady Whistledown is. In the end, it was revealed: none other than Penelope Featherington (played by Nicola Coughlan) wrote the letters that revealed the latest gossip from the characters! For many, this fact may have come out of nowhere, but resourceful fans found the clues to it throughout the entire first season. In episode 3, in the scene in which Daphne and Prince Friedrich are dancing, Duke Simon leaves the ball. Penelope is the ONLY one who looks after Simon as he leaves the room. Actress Coughlan even retweeted the post herself, as if to congratulate the clever fan!
But even the first episode of “Bridgerton” gave viewers who knew where to look the important clue as to the identity of Lady Whistledown. When Daphne and Simon meet for the first time, Anthony Bridgerton, Daphne’s brother, also appears on the scene and walks up to his old buddy. And he’s standing next door, completely innocent and pretending to be having a little chat with the other guests? Exactly, Penelope, who definitely paid attention to the three characters and not to other guests. We are completely surprised and use the time to search the first season of “Bridgerton” for new clues to Penelope’s second identity!
