Kate and Anthony’s first proper introduction

The first thing the women took notice of was the absence of Anthony’s mutton chops, something they collectively agreed was a good thing to get rid of. They also commented on how well executed Kate and Anthony’s first meeting was. It ends with her taking Edwina away from Anthony at a ball. This shows their dynamic perfectly and also sets the stage for the rest of their love-hate-love relationship.


The scene from The Viscount Who Loved Me that the Booktubers were most excited to see in Bridgerton season 2 is that of pall mall. It is this scene they describe as one of the most pivotal ones of the season and we have to agree. Not only do we see Kate and Anthony’s similarities, but they are also forced together.
