What happens in Bridgerton season 3?

After the Featherington Ball fallout in Season 2, Penelope finds herself heartbroken upon overhearing Colin’s declaration to his friends that he would never pursue her romantically. This, coupled with her rift with best friend Eloise, leaves her in a somber state.

The official synopsis reveals that Penelope enters Season 3 ready to let go of her long-standing infatuation with Colin. Instead, she sets her sights on finding a husband who will support her unconventional double life as Lady Whistledown, away from her family’s scrutiny.

Despite her efforts, Penelope’s attempts to secure a match on the marriage market fall flat, leaving her confidence shaken. Meanwhile, Colin returns from his travels transformed and confident, only to be disheartened by Penelope’s chilly reception. Seeking to mend their friendship, Colin offers to coach Penelope in self-assurance to aid her quest for a husband. However, as his efforts yield unexpected results, Colin grapples with the true nature of his feelings for Penelope.

Complicating matters further is Penelope’s strained relationship with Eloise, who finds solace in an unlikely companion. With Penelope’s growing prominence in society, maintaining her Lady Whistledown persona becomes increasingly precarious.
