Welcome to Season Three of What Would Danbury Do... All Bridgerton. All the time.
Our characters spring into action in this episode, with boxing, running, horseback riding, kissing, yelling, and duelling.
We get to hang out with Alice and Will (the best couple), dissect a very expensive piece of jewellery, and find out who is #TeamSimon - and who is not. Poor Prince Friedrich is really going about courting in the best way possible, but he’s no match for Simon’s eyebrow raising, and Daphne finally makes her choice.
