'Belgravia' Season 1 Finale: Jullian Fellowes's show gets a happy ending, fans wonder when's Season 2 coming
Spoilers for 'Belgravia' Season 1
And so 'Belgravia' Season 1 concluded on Epix. With it six episodes, the period drama provided its audience with an escape that was very much needed at a dire time like this.
The finale episode consisted of a plot against Charles Pope (Jack Bardoe). John Bellasis (Adam James) had concocted a plan to drown him so that he could go back to being the rightful heir to the Earl of Brockenhurst. This had many fans feeling angsty. "If poor Charles gets hurt, or worse, we riot!" tweeted one.
The most surprising part of the episode was when Oliver Trenchard (Richard Goulding) found out the truth about his nephew and he was so guilt-ridden, he was ready to sacrifice his life. "Oliver has a conscience...didn’t see that coming," tweeted one fan. "Omg, Oliver did the right thing!" added another.
But what made the most exciting part of the episode was Susan Trenchard (Alice Eve) getting back at John for mocking her. After discovering she is pregnant, she approached John, and told him the truth and overcome with feelings, also told him that she could divorce Oliver and offers to get married to him. But John only laughed at her plans and dismissed her rudely. But Susan is a smart woman and the finale is turned around because of her. "That’ll teach John to laugh in the face of his lover," tweeted one.
At the same, with the series at an end, fans are tweeting their love for period dramas. "Really hoped for more of this series. #Belgravia You did a wonderful job @EPIXHD @BelgraviaOnEPIX Please give us more period dramas. Can you try a few diverse ones? Belgravia was so good loved it didn't want it to end," tweeted a fan.
And will there be a second season? "@BelgraviaOnEPIX Thanks to EVERYONE who gave us this wonderful show! Only 6 episodes & I 100% enjoyed it from beginning to end. Will there be another season? I sure hope so! #Belgravia," tweeted another fan. "@BelgraviaOnEPIX phenomenal! Julian Fellowes, season 2 please! #Belgravia #Epix" added another.
The show may have come to an end but not without some ups and downs. "The last episode of Belgravia was the last half of the book compressed down."
"#belgravia episode 6 had me on the edge of my seat! Well done #julianfellowes," disagreed a fan.
"Ending of BELGRAVIA (Epix) distributed happy endings and just desserts like a Dickens Christmas, to borrow Wilfrid Sheed’s phrase. And oh that Alice Eve," added another.
