What will happen to Colin Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington? Will Penelope’s huge crush ever become a reality? Or is she doomed to a life of loving Colin from afar?
WARNING: MAJOR ‘BRIDGERTON’ SPOILERS AHEAD
Here’s everything we know about Colin and Penelope …
Will Colin and Penelope Get Together?
Fans of the series have fallen in love with Colin and Penelope and are hoping they get together soon. Penelope’s crush on the Bridgerton brother is no secret, and many fans are hoping the pair will finally admit their attraction for one another.
After Season 2, Luke Newton and Nicola Coughlan spoke about their characters’ relationship and how it has grown during Seasons 1 and 2. Luke said, “I think what’s most exciting about it is the longevity of their relationship, how we’ve seen them go from Season 1 all the way to Season 2 now, and there’s still so much to go within their relationship. There’s so much to see, so much growth that needs to happen for us to get to a destination that we feel is you know, the end goal, I guess.”
He added that their friendship is special and “she gives him a sense of that warm feeling that reminds him of home. When he has a moment alone with Pen, it feels like he’s been really himself.”
The couple will also have to deal with the shocking bombshell that Penelope is Lady Whistledown. Fans of the series found out during Season 2, and the secret already caused tension between Penelope and Eloise Bridgerton. Will it ruin Colin and Penelope’s potential romance, too?
Will Colin and Penelope’s Friendship Turn Into More?
While Colin and Penelope are great friends, many fans are worried that the end of Season 2 doesn’t bode well for the potential couple. During the last episode, Penelope hears Colin telling his friends that he would never date her.
He said, “Are you mad? I would never dream of courting Penelope Featherington. Not in your wildest fantasies.”
Nicola spoke about that scene and said it was important for Penelope and the growth of her relationship with Colin. She said, “And I always felt like it was very important to include it because Penelope is at a point now where she’s only ever seen Colin as this perfect, infallible human that can never do anything wrong. He’s so perfect. And she’s got to see that he isn’t. That’s not how love works.”
Luke Newton spoke to Today about the scene and said that Colin was just trying to be “one of the boys,” and fit in with other members of the ton. He added that during Season 2, Colin still doesn’t see Penelope in a romantic sense.
Who Will Colin Bridgerton Marry?
In Julia Quinn’s books, Colin ends up marrying Penelope Featherington. The fourth novel, “Romancing Mr. Bridgerton,” focuses on their friendship and how it develops into a romance. While the producers of Bridgerton haven’t confirmed that the couple will get together in the show, they have hinted at it.
Shonda Rhimes spoke to Entertainment Weekly and said, “We’re not necessarily going in order, but we’re going to be seeing each one of the siblings and their stories.”
Whether Colin and Penelope get their love story in Season 3 or 4, many fans are waiting for the happily ever after. Even Luke Newton is excited for his spotlight series. He said he’s excited at the idea, but still terrified.
He said, “It was really exciting to be able to ring my mum and say, ‘We’re gonna get to my story at some point.’ She’s over the moon, as well, obviously.”
