Who is Simon in ‘Bridgerton’?

Simon, Duke of Hastings, is a character who returns to London in 1813 and unknowingly gets caught up in the social season, in which young women attend balls to meet men for marriage. At first Simon doesn’t want to get involved, as he has vowed never to marry, but strikes a friendship with Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor), who is ultimately the exception to the his rule.

They both agree to a contract: He pretends she was interested in it other men with interest so she can get involved and she satisfies scary questions, not asking about when to marry from others she doesn’t want answered.

In fact, just like clockwork, their deceptive passing scheme turns out to be true – as is the love for each other. At the end of the season, Simon gives Daphne what she has always wanted and eventually he fills her with so much joy too.

Why are people thirsty?

The claim for Simon is due to a few factors. In fact, he looks insane. But more than that, Simon’s relationship with Daphne (and thus, the viewer’s lens into his romantic side) begins as a friendship, in which Simon can show how attentive he is. he’s with her, all the while spewing out sarcastic, funny comments that show he knows how to prevent it. And when he explains to Daphne what sex she would have with a cisgender man, he explains how she should please herself in private, which is the hottest scene on Netflix in 2020.

When Daphne and Simon are “forced” to enter into a marriage together because they have been caught kissing, Simon returns from Daphne, fearing that she will regret it. situation in which they entered. But later he confesses his love, and their montage of having sex with Taylor Swift’s “Wildest Dreams” will surely be on everyone’s mind for weeks.

He’s a man who knows what he wants, who has a sensitive side, and who’s not bad at looking at him at all. In fact, he is the latest boyfriend on the internet.

However, Simon is not without fault. He doesn’t seem to last long in the bedroom and tries to convince Daphne that he can’t have children instead of explaining that he doesn’t want them. Daphne is also very flawed herself. But with Simon, it seems like nothing he’s doing is still haunting the audience that’s unbelievable for his character.

What now for Simon?

Even though Simon’s trip seems to be over before last season, it looks like he could be included in season two that could be Bridgerton. The book series, written by Julia Quinn, follows Anthony Bridgerton – Daphne’s older brother. Given the enthusiasm and passion of the fans for Simon, it seems like it should Bridgerton by season two, his character would at least make an appearance. And if he does, Simon’s thirst is sure to survive too.
