This recap of Netflix’s Bridgerton season 2, episode 7, “Harmony,” contains spoilers.
Bridgerton season 2, episode 7 recap
As Lady Whistledown continues to gossip, Kate dreams of Anthony. And Edwina refuses to speak a word during bath time. Queen Charlotte is keen to speak to Eloise and voices her theory that she is Lady Whistledown. The Bridgerton and Sharma families try to move on from the scandal of the wedding. To help save face, they decide to make it a mutual decision as to why the wedding didn’t go ahead.
Fearful after her conversation with Queen Charlotte, Eloise tells Penelope what has happened, and says she is worried that she may have put Theo in harm’s way. Penelope attempts to calm Eloise down by telling her to wait for the next issue. When Geuinvene learns of recent events, she suggests that Penelope turns herself in. But Penelope believes that it will not work. So, instead, Geuinvene suggests that “Lady Whistledown” writes something “ugly” about Eloise, something that Penelope is against.
During dinner, all eyes are on Edwina and Anthony. As Lord Jack continues to scheme, Eloise pays a visit to Theo. She wants to make sure he is ok and that they get their stories straight. However, Theo is livid and tells her to return to Mayfair. Edwina continues to have struggle forgiving Kate claiming that “happy endings do not exist”. Anthony attempts to speak to Kate and mentions their kiss, which Kate denies even happened. Adding salt to the wound, she says “we should be ashamed of what we did”. In a moment of joy for Penelope, Colin praises her for being constant and loyal towards her.
Feeling that she is faced with little choice, Eloise decides that she will “confess” to being Lady Whistledown, and afterward, she will make the real Lady Whistledown pay for her crimes. However, there’s no need. The latest issue from Lady Whistledown claims that Eloise has taken up improper relations. Whilst it devastates Penelope, it seemingly stops Queen Charlotte from believing that Eloise is Lady Whistledown.
After Edwina tells Kate that she is “kinder hearted”, Kate bumps into Anthony. They argue (as usual). Although, this time, they kiss passionately and have sex. The next morning, whilst filled with guilt, Kate goes horseriding. But largely due to her overwhelming emotion, she falls off her horse. Is Kate dead?
Well, what an ending. Is Kate dead? Personally, whilst I think it would be a great twist and potentially make the finale even stronger than the Season 1 finale, I don’t think Bridgerton is going to go down that route.
