Bridgeton Season 2 Review

Wanted to do this to share my thoughts ๐Ÿ’ญ ๐Ÿ˜โ˜บ๏ธ Binged 8 episodes in 3 days

Realized this is an incomplete episode breakdown and just what Ithought of ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ episodes and the show overall

My reading blog: ๐Ÿ˜

Heavily influenced by YouTube so used videos like as a guide ๐Ÿ˜‰ ,,

General impression: The Netflix adaptation felt like itโ€™s own thing ๐Ÿค” Even if Iโ€™ve read the book, still didnโ€™t know what to expect ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Couldnโ€™t help drawing comparisons to the book. Liked how the show 1) brought in Sir Phillip earlier 2) more bonding with Pen-El, Benedict-Eloise 3) feel like it prepared for Benefitโ€™s book/season 4) music ๐ŸŽถ, But things I looked for 1) iconic scenes and 2) relationship between Mary-Kate ๐Ÿค” So my previous post (and list) can help there!

The section Key ๐Ÿ”‘ differences: may be spoilery ๐Ÿคซ so read with CAUTION โš ๏ธ List of scenes where it was different/ommitted ๐Ÿ’ก

Rewatchability: Y (yet to do)

Book or Show: For sentimental reasons, book ๐Ÿ“–

As someone who has read the book, disappeared that some scenes were missing ๐Ÿฅฒ

Noteworthy episodes (rewatched some episodes)

(these ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ contain spoilers)


Canโ€™t help looking for some book scenes

  • Kateโ€™s fear of thunderstorms ๐ŸŒฉ
  • ๐Ÿ sting
  • Anthony-Kate wedding

Rewatched: Not in ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ order but numerically

  • S2E1 – Capital R Rake
    • Kate & Anthony meet ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜
    • Sharma sisters ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ at 1st ball

      • Names Edwina as her diamond ๐Ÿ’Ž
      • Anthony dances ๐Ÿ’ƒ ๐Ÿ•บ with Edwina
    • Meet NEW Lord Featherington

      • Anthony inserts himself ๐Ÿ˜
    • Lady Danburyโ€™s ball/talent show ๐Ÿ˜‚โœŠ๐Ÿฝ

Anthony has set his mark ๐ŸŽฏ and Kate ๐Ÿคฌ it ๐Ÿ˜‚ More or less that dynamic ๐Ÿค”

  • S2E3 – A Bee ๐Ÿ In Your Bonnet
    • Edmund ๐Ÿชฆ ๐Ÿ
    • Pall mall & Aubrey Hall
    • Anthony doesnโ€™t propose
    • Kate stung by a ๐Ÿ ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

This episode gets dark ๐Ÿฅฒ but not as dark as it couldโ€™ve gotten. It also contained the iconic pall-mall scene ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

  • S2E4 – Victory
    • Lady Bridgeton Hearts and Flowers ball
      • Hunting
      • Rain โ˜”๏ธ Anthony finds Kate in the library

    • Madam Delacroix and Penelope have an arrangement

Love this pairing ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ wish they got together sooner and wish Edwina didnโ€™t have to get hurt like that ๐Ÿฅฒ Enjoyed how the writers furthered the plot for 1) Merina and Sir Phillip 2) The Featheringtonโ€™s ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ Felt it was good ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ the hast scene was pall mall

Feel like viewers were 1) exclusive show watchers and 2) book readers
