It hasn’t been long since the 2nd season of bridgerton arrived at Netflixbut with seasons 3 and 4 confirmed, the public has already started looking for clues about what is to come in the next episodes of the production of Shonda Rhimes.
If the show’s writers follow the same order as the Julia QuinnBenedict Bridgerton (Luke Thompson) should have her story told soon and we will meet Sophie Beckett, her love interest, in a retelling of Cinderella. Fans even noticed several references indicating that the character is coming.
In the original story, Sophie is the illegitimate daughter of an earl and, after her father’s death, becomes a servant to her stepmother and daughters, but in a twist, she goes to work in the Bridgerton household. During Season 2, Anthony twice mentions the need to hire new employees, which could be an indication that the young woman will appear soon.
This becomes even more suspicious when the viscount says they need a young woman to look after Elouise, which is the role offered to Sophie in the book.
Anthony mentioning hiring new staff and particularly a “strong-willed lady’s maid for Eloise” really makes me feel that they might be introducing Sophie in S3 but her and Benedict’s love story might only start in S4, he specifically mentioned losing staff in E8 too.#Bridgerton pic.twitter.com/cE2R1QjKhm

But the biggest clue was a pendant worn by Benedict: a Cinderella slipper. It so happens that in the history of A Perfect Gentleman, the boy meets Sophie as the “lady in silver” at a masquerade ball, but can’t find her name, as she has to run away when the clock strikes midnight. Familiar, huh?
now no one can call benophie stans freaky, because WHAT THE FUCK WOULD BENEDICT BRIDGERTON HAVE A WOMEN’S SHOE LIKE THAT? (you can come in sophie, I know you’re there) pic.twitter.com/TfpeizTpcv

It is worth remembering that the story of Colin and Penelope comes next, in the book Colin Bridgerton’s Secrets, and the plot of Elouise and Sir Phillip (yes, the one who has already appeared and is married to Marina) is contact in the fifth book in the series. Will there be more seasons being confirmed? We hope so!
So, have you read the Benedict and Sophie story book?
