It cannot be denied that the true strength of the season rested entirely on the gorgeous shoulders of Jonathan Bailey and Simone Ashley, who play Anthony, Viscount Bridgerton and Kathani “Kate” Sharma respectively.
It is just frustrating Kate and Anthony's resolution came after 8 hours of pining. The moments they were free and happy to be together without guilt and without putting other's needs ahead of their own were short and only a handful of minutes right at the end of the season
I cannot deny that Bailey and Ashley are every bit the Anthony and Kate I had imagined. They surpassed it even, managing to strike at the root and heart of the characters, even through muddled writing and thinned-out motivations.
