Bridgerton – Season 1, Episode 5 Recap

Our coverage of Bridgerton continues with episode 5, ‘The Duke and I.’ First, we speculate on the further hints we get regarding Benedict’s future, and the queer coding the show has set up for us. We touch on Queen Charlotte and the mind-destroying illness of her husband, King George. Last, we follow Simon and Daphne through the peak of their delicious emotional misunderstanding and to their wedding night, where some things are confessed (and acted upon) and some things still remain secret.
