Spoilers for 'Belgravia' Season 1 Episode 2

Promises were broken, secrets were revealed and great tensions were harvested in 'Belgravia' Season 1 Episode 2. Despite promising her husband James Trenchard that she would keep the secret about their daughter, Sophia's (Emily Reid) child with Lord Edmund Bellasis (Jeremy Neumark Jones), Anne Trenchard (Tamsin Greig) confesses to Countess of Brockenhurst Caroline Bellasis (Harriet Walter).

This, needless to say with Walter playing her role, leads to high tensions between the two grandmothers Anne and Caroline. In order to turn the tables in her favor, Caroline invites Charles Pope (Jack Bardoe) to a fancy dinner and parades him around for everyone to gossip, that way, the truth will be out without her having to bat an eye. "#Belgravia rung very true in that it showed the power of a loving grandmother."

If this wasn't Caroline trying to prove to Anne that she has an upper hand over her no matter what, fans are here for that. "Does Harriet Walter ever not play a bitch? #Belgravia"

"Dang that was some drama I didn’t know I needed," added another. "Oh , she played The Trenchards and Mr. Pope beautifully!" chimed in another fan.

The increasing drama has already made fans pick a favorite between the warring Anne and Caroline. "Belgravia is two tough biddies in a legacy war and it’s really helping me right now," tweeted a fan. 

Doubts about Charles Pope and his royal inheritance is still a big question for many. "But aren’t they going to have to say they were married in order to claim him as the heir?" But it is only with time that we will know more. For at the moment, his legitimacy is not working in his favour (our prediction is only half-baked though).

Now what does the future hold for Charles Pope? We are as eager as fans to find out. "Well, that was some superb television once again! I guess it's another week to find out what happens next. Plenty of intrigue is afoot!"

While many lament for Sophia, what is to come Charles' way only intrigues them. "Still kinda sucks that Sophia died thinking Edmund was a 19th century f***boi but whatever. The important thing is - Charles is legitimate like we all knew he would be, because Julian Fellowes loves dropping massive inheritances into people's laps."
