Bridgerton Season 2 Ending Explained.

The conclusion of Bridgerton season 2 borrows from Julia Quinn's book series to create an indelible moments that fans should love.

Some Bridgerton viewers may be wondering why the final two scenes of season 2 feature a time jump in-between Penelope’s voiceover as Lady Whistledown,

And the last moment which is a reprisal of the Pall Mall game from episode 3. There’s a simple explanation beyond creating hype for future seasons. 

The answer lies in the book that Bridgerton season 2 is based on called The Viscount Who Loved Me.

Julia Quinn, the author of the book series, writes epilogue scenes following each book to show events after the couple is engaged or married.

The epilogues often include details to cement the Happy Ever After for the couple in question, 

Such as the name of their firstborn child, a Bridgerton family reunion, or a flash forward scene that addresses a loose plot thread.

Bridgerton scripts frequently have to trim scenes from the book either for time or because it’s easier to visualize a setting on screen versus describing it in text.

The writers do know, however, the fans love the epilogues and view them as an important part of character development.

Season 1 of Bridgerton also ended with an epilogue scene that showed Simon and Daphne’s son as a newborn.
