Revealed Too Early
One of the biggest mysteries surrounding Bridgerton was the identity of Lady Whistledown. Just who was this anonymous writer detailing the gossip of “the ton?” Of course, fans who have read the books knew the answer but even watchers of the show didn’t have to wait for too long as the secret was revealed at the end of Season 1. It was none other than Penelope Featherington.
In the books, however, this is only disclosed during the fourth book titled ‘Romancing Mister Bridgerton.’ Even author Julia Quinn had no idea of the premature reveal until she saw some cuts. Apparently, the creators of the show felt that it didn’t make much sense to keep the audience waiting as many would have read the books anyway.
