Harlots' season 3: Lady Isabella and Charlotte better become a powercouple or there will be a lesbian revolt
In the chaotic world of 'Harlots', where women are merely trying to get by, and not end up with a man who rapes or abuses them, it is hard to expect love. However, the show had proven that love can be found in the most hopeless places, between women who work in the flesh trade.
The first moment of tenderness between Charlotte and Lady Isabella Fitzwilliam was small and, in the grand scheme of the events happening in the sixth episode of 'Harlots' season two, if you are not a shipper, you probably would not understand the significance of it.
Not only are Liv Tyler and Jessica Brown Findlay two of the most beautiful women on the face of the planet, but they also happen to portray Lady Isabella and Charlotte with conviction and vulnerability. The genuine friendship that the two women developed over the course of season two while trying to take down Lydia Quigley was beautiful to watch unfold on screen.
Their chemistry on screen is palpable and Charlotte's open fascination with her, while Isabella's jealousy upon her brother’s interest in Charlotte is heartbreakingly amusing. Even before it was sealed with a kiss we saw the invisible flames rising between them and they better be fanned to their full capacity come season or 'Harlots' will have hell to pay.
The lesbians have spoken and so have the allies who love a good love story, and they won’t have it any way other than Charlotte and Isabella becoming a power-couple. "From the moment they meet, they had such a connection and the chemistry between them is so strong," writes one fan on YouTube, while another seconded, "Lady Isabella and Charlotte is everything I need from this series pls don't destroy this pair."
We hope the 'Harlots' showrunners were paying attention because come July 10, fans will be expecting this romance to flourish.
