'Bridgerton' Season 2 Episode 2: Eloise inches closer to know real identity of Lady Whistledown
Spoilers for 'Bridgerton' Season 2 Episode 2
In Season 1 of ‘Bridgerton’, everyone wanted to know the real identity of Lady Whistledown. She used to share all the gossips that happen around the social season in London and even write about things that are not meant to go outside. However, as the season came to an end, we discovered the real identity of the author and it was none other than Penelope (Nicola Coughlan), who was writing all the gossip around the aristocratic society.
Now that Queen Charlotte (Golda Rosheuvel) is ready to announce the diamond for the season, Lady Whistledown has come back to write about all the delightful things about young men and women who have come here to find a suitable partner for themselves. However, things are not looking good for the mysterious writer because someone is getting too close to knowing about her real identity and that someone is none other than Eloise Bridgerton (Claudia Jessie).
In Episode 2 of the latest season, we see Eloise getting obsessed with the writing of Lady Whistledown. However, she feels that she can do better and her writings are getting boring now. She is looking forward to giving her some suggestions even if she ever meets her. This makes Penelope a bit upset that her best friend is talking about not liking her writings. A few moments later, Eloise and her mother attend the horse race in which Anthony Bridgerton looks forward to spending some quality time this season’s diamond, Miss Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran).
While walking with her mother, Eloise sees a pamphlet and buys it instantly. She looks a bit intrigued by the paper used for the pamphlet because it’s the same paper Lady Whistledown uses for writing her endeavors. She sees a red symbol at the bottom of the paper and decides to go to the shop that prints this kind of paper. When she reaches the shop, she sees that the shop is closed. However, she finds one of the workers there and asks about Lady Whistledown. The worker doesn’t know what she’s talking about and asks why she is here? She tells him that she is hoping to find the writer to discuss some intellectual matters such as women’s rights. Eloise finds nothing but disappointment when she is not able to find anything about Lady Whistledown there.
The next day, Eloise meets Penelope and tells her about how she feels that Lady Whistledown is someone among us. Penelope gets cautious as Eloise tells her that she went down to the printer shop to know about her. She also tells her that apart from having identical papers, the letter K in both papers is slightly misshapen in the same way. Penelope knows what she needs to do now and she goes to a vendor to buy a new letter “K” for Stanhope press so that the printer doesn’t repeat the same mistake.
On the other hand, Queen Charlotte is playing her own game to unmask Lady Whistledown with the help of the new diamond, Edwina. According to her plan, the writer will seek access to her and when she does, her majesty will be waiting to know her true identity. Lady Danbury got to know about the sly intentions and asked if she chose Edwina because of that? Queen replies by saying that she trusts the Sharma family and she is doing all this to catch the real woman behind that gossip.
The episode ends with one of Queen’s men sharing pictures of those women that have come in contact with the Diamond and one of the papers had Penelope’s photos as well. Eloise and Queen Charlotte are working tirelessly to know who really is Lady Whistledown?
