Although we know that Season 2 of ‘Bridgerton’ will focus on Anthony Bridgerton and Kate Sharma’s love story, the announcement of Edwina Sharma (Charithra Chandran) as the season’s diamond has undoubtedly shaken things up. Anthony’s first meeting with Kate took place in an unlikely manner when he found her riding a horse in the gardens of Queen Charlotte’s beautiful estate. Since then, things have been going downhill for both of them. Kate heard what kind of woman Anthony wants and made up her mind that she would never let her sister marry a person like that.

Meanwhile, Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) doesn’t really know why Kate (Simone Ashley) is being so stubborn and not letting him prove how good of a man he is. On the other hand, Edwina is absolutely in love with Anthony and wants to marry him. In the previous episode, we saw the entire Bridgerton family and Sharma Family enjoying a game of Pall-mall. During that game, Anthony and Kate did come very close. However, in the end, it seemed like they felt something for each other when Kate got stung by a bee.

Both families are expecting Anthony to propose, however, he is still not sure if he wants to marry Edwina or not. In Episode 4, we see Anthony in a dilemma if he indeed wants Edwina to be his wife or he wants Kate to be his partner. In order to make Kate like Anthony, Edwina tries making them spend time with each other because she feels that they both don’t like each other, and if Anthony needs to propose to her, they would have to reach a common ground. As a result, Edwina tells Anthony and Benedict, who are going for a hunt with other men, how good her sister is at hunting. Anthony does not take that seriously and believes “women don’t hunt”.

Kate gets a little annoyed after hearing this and tells him that she doesn’t need permission to hunt. Edwina requests Anthony and Benedict to take her with them and enjoy the day. Kate, along with Anthony and several other men, goes for the hunt. A few moments later, everyone believes that the animal they were looking to hunt has disappeared and they are now planning to reach the camp. But Kate is adamant that she knows their prey is still there and decides to choose her own path.

Anthony goes out to find her in the woods and finally sees her aiming at something. The Viscount tells her that she must have never held a British rifle before and it’s different than the other rifles she must have held while hunting. Anthony tries telling her how to use this, however, as soon as he touches her, he seems to have forgotten where he is. He gets closer to her and Kate is not stopping him from getting close. However, the moment is ruined when some of the men from the hunting party arrive and ask about the prey.

Later that night, a ball has been organized and Anthony asks Edwina for a dance. They both dance and share things with each other. After dancing with each other for a long time, Edwina returns to Kate and tells her how she believes Anthony will surely propose to her. Kate is really happy to hear that. But Edwina wants Kate and Anthony to have a good friendship as well so when Anthony comes to ask Edwina for another dance, she says Kate would like to dance with him. They look at each other and Anthony politely asks Kate for a dance. Kate obliges and they both dance with each. During their dance, Anthony asks what he should do to have her approval. Kate replies that she just wants to see her sister happy and it does not matter what she thinks because she will be returning to India as soon as her sister gets married.

Anthony is shocked to hear that and leaves the dance floor. Kate promises Edwina to make things alright. Kate barges inside Anthony’s room and asks why did he behave like that? The duo gets into an argument and Anthony tells her that she does not like him, to which, Kate replies “of course” she doesn’t like him. When Anthony asks for a reason, she says he makes her worry for her sister. Meanwhile, Anthony tells Kate that she hates him and that’s why she doesn’t want her sister to get married to him.

The argument leads them to get closer and they reach a point where they were about to kiss each, but they get away from each other when Daphne comes searching for her brother. Daphne sees them like that and asks what was happening? Anthony says that it was nothing. Daphne says that she saw them getting close to each other and that was the exact kind of situation she was in when Anthony saw her with Simon.
