How did Bridgerton season two end?

The main question that plagued fans' minds throughout season two was if the eldest Bridgerton and Kate Sharma would end up together? And end up together they did!

After nearly an entire season of lingering looks, touching hands and near kisses, Anthony and Kate become an item – much to audiences' relief!

It became clear in episode six that the Viscount's engagement to the youngest Sharma sister, Edwina, would not come to fruition as London's high society observe their botched wedding.

The remaining two episodes were dedicated to Kate Sharma coming round to her deep feelings for Anthony. In the finale, Kate is recovering from a horseriding accident and her soon to be Bridgerton beau calls on her to offer his hand in marriage, however, she initially declines.

On Kate's last as part of the Ton, she attends a ball with her sister before returning to India. During this event, the Queen approves of her match with Anthony after she witnesses their chemistry as they danced.

The finale then jumps six months into the future after the pair have tied the knot! The Viscount and Viscountess are once again playing croquet on the Bridgerton estate with the family that seems to have a flair for dramatic love stories...
