Fall in Love with my top 5 Scenes from Bridgerton

A disclaimer is in order as I’d like to let you know that the only reason I watched the first season of Bridgerton, a trending series on Netflix is because I was pressured into seeing what the fuss was all about.

Did I regret it? No.

This isn’t a review but if you’re not into love, romance and matchmaking, you might not find Bridgerton interesting and you might probably end up like someone I know who sleeps within the first five minutes of watching a movie.

It is assumed that if I have seen this series, the entire world has seen it because what time do I have for movies these days? However, it is out of the kindness of my heart that I’m telling you that this blog post contains spoilers. I can’t have you hate me later. You’ve been forewarned.

When I started the series, I didn’t know what to expect. All I know is that this guy was everywhere on social media and I wasn’t finding it funny.

Regé-Jean Page, the Duke of Hastings 🤤

But I get it now, I do. Some people are fine and others are fineeeeee!!! Regé-Jean Page killed his role as Simon, the Duke of Hastings, and yeah, that’s it.

I was captivated by the series, no lies. I was awake all night watching and when I eventually slept, I dreamt about some scenes and I’m not even joking. I’ll be sharing my top five scenes in Bridgerton with you in no particular order. I’ve seen these scenes at least twice since I completed the series because I can’t help myself.

So we have:

The scene where Simon Confesses his love for Daphne to the Queen:

Look at that! No, just look at that!! His words made me swoon. This scene was so pure. Look at how she was looking at him 🥺. If I was the one being talked about like that, I’d have started weeping on the spot. Although the Duke said these things to convince the queen to allow him to marry Daphne, he meant every word. This scene is everything. God when? 😭😭😭

The scene where Daphne’s mum tries to explain sex to her on her wedding day:

So in the movie, Daphne is innocent and she knows absolutely nothing about sexual intercourse. On her wedding day, her mum tries to explain it to her and her discomfort was hilarious 😂😂😂

Daphne’s expression 😂😂😂

It was quite funny to watch this woman explain sex to her child because I could relate it to how some of our mothers shy away from the subject and fail to give proper sex education. Most times, girls have to get these lessons elsewhere. Daphne suffered because of this lack of knowledge but she pulled through.

The famous scene where they burned for each other:

After watching the scene, this was me:

I mean, look at this drama. We get that he was filled with passion but did he have to shout? 😂

“When one buurrrrrnnnnssss” 😂

It didn’t stop there. The babe burned too 😌.

Immediately she said that line, I was like “Pele o, hellfire” 😂😭

Anyway, the scene was intense and the only people we’re considering this year are people that buuuurrrrnnnn for us. Amen?

The “I love you, I love all of you” scene:

I can relate to this scene because I have given speeches like this one to people I love and have loved before and even though most of them ended in tears, I’m glad that this one did not end in tears and things fell into place. Love is a beautiful thing, please.

And…

The scene that unmasked Lady Whistledown:

I never would have suspected that Penelope will be Lady Whistledown. I read somewhere that we should never underestimate a wallflower. The truth of the matter is that the people we think are insignificant or of no consequence are often the people that wield power. I’m still in shock!

There you have it tho’ – my top 5 scenes. If you didn’t know before, I guess it’s now obvious that I’m an incurable romantic and I love to love, and just in case you weren’t aware, Bridgerton was adapted from the novels by Julia Quinn – The Bridgerton series. Those books are eight and as much as I love reading, I don’t think I’ll read all of them. I’ve already started the first book – “The Duke and I”.

I cannot wait for season two.

Love,

‘Ruona. ❤️

Praaaaiiisee the Lord!! It’s resurrection season! Jesus is alive!! There’s public holiday today and on Monday!! No classes till Tuesday!! Can I get an hallelujah?

How have I been? I’ve been okay, really. School is just so stressful. Even my smile looks stressed. Yes. Look at the picture again.

I think I spaced out these past two weeks ‘cos I have about 5 assignments to complete and I just wrote a test but school won’t keep me from publishing here.

Back to serious matters 😪😌 Winter is finally here!! (Cue GOT fans screaming in the background 😂) I’m sure everyone knows about Game of Thrones now because of all the hype especially on the 14th of April when the first episode of the final season officially aired. Have you seen the ratings of this series? I’m in awe!

So, I’m unashamedly one of the GOT fans. You should hear me singing the theme song with my angelic voice. 😚 My course mates can testify. 😌 Almost everyone in the world is watching GOT. Emphasis on almost because there are people like this:

And then we have:

😂😂😂

This was my cousin’s status update by the way. Apparently, The Dr Donald is not a fan. This was one of his many hate posts but who cares right? 😂

I started watching the series in my 100 level, second semester. It’s captivating and suspense filled. To me, it’s worth the hype and I have my favorite characters.

My best character till date is Arya Stark (Maisie Williams). I don’t know why but I feel like I can relate to her on so many levels because she grew stronger with each circumstance she was surrounded by.

This is Arya:

My second favorite character is Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) the unburnt, Khaleesi and mother of dragons!! There was a point when I started watching GOT that I’d skip the other scenes and watch her scene first before properly watching an episode. She is strong, beautiful and ooh so intimidating.. Lol. I love it when she says Dracarys. Honestly, we need her dragons for the annoying people in Nigeria. Here’s our queen:

Last but not the least is Jon Snow (Kit Harrington), my boo. Argue with your keyboard but we have something special. So, Oga is so nice and he puts the interests of others before him. His selflessness is just something to be reckoned with. He gave up his crown for a cause. So noble. But with this secret that we found out in episode 1 of season 8, who knows what will happen next? So, Jon Snow in all his finesse:

These are my top three characters in GOT and like I said, it’s worth the hype.

Last Sunday, my roommate wanted to be in on the GOT craziness so we downloaded a summary here. Mind you, it doesn’t give you total knowledge of the 7 seasons. Like, how can you even summarize 7 whole seasons in an hour? I know what I went through that day because we’d watch like two minutes and I’d be explaining for about ten but now, Juliet has basic knowledge of GOT and she won’t be floating when we’re having winter discussions 😏

So, I’m anticipating episode 2 of season 8 while still trying to figure out how I’m going to do my assignments because:

I’m just realizing that after all the noise I made at the beginning of my write up about the holidays, I’m going to be doing book work. Sigh. But I’ll probably go watch a movie tomorrow. I deserve a break.

Going off topic, let me just chip in that I’m laughing at Manchester United and I’m hailing Barcelona and Messi (He’s my guy too 😍). Twas a funny match by the way 😂😂

Anyways, I hope your Easter holiday goes great, especially those ones that are traveling. Where are you people even traveling to for just 4 days? that’s another story for another day.

Till next time loves, Happy Easter!

‘Ruona ❤️
