Theo Sharpe proves Bridgerton must change Eloise’s story
Bridgerton season 2 introduced Theo Sharpe, a character not in the books. His relationship with Eloise proves that a change in his story could work.
Warning: Spoilers ahead for Bridgerton season 2.
Bridgerton season 2 made more than a few changes to the books and also added new characters, including Theo Sharpe, whose presence changed Eloise Bridgerton’s story. In the Bridgerton books, written by Julia Quinn, Eloise’s love story takes center stage in the fifth book, titled To Sir Phillip, with love. the Bridgerton The series may follow the novels they’re based on to some degree, but that’s an entirely different medium, allowing for more depth and exploration of characters who aren’t yet ready to be in the main romance of the series. season.
As an ensemble show, that means Eloise has quite a meaty history in Bridgerton season 2. She is still searching for the identity of Lady Whistledown, but Eloise also discovers that she enjoys the company of a certain Theo Sharpe, a printer’s assistant who is under her post. Theo turned out to be a good love for Eloise. Not only were they attracted to each other, but they had a meeting of minds, with Theo not at all dismissive of Eloise’s interest and passion for women’s rights. Eloïse and Théo had a good relationship throughout Bridgerton season 2 and they discussed things that Eloise couldn’t talk much about with anyone in the ton, most of which didn’t take her seriously.
Theo was someone who respected Eloise and vice versa. She was also someone who offered a different perspective than she had grown up with as a member of the ton. While Eloise distanced herself from Theo at the end of season 2, Bridgerton should stay the course and change Eloise’s love interest from the books in future seasons. In Quinn’s fifth Bridgerton novel, Eloise ends up marrying Sir Phillip Crane, who is currently married to Marina on the show. However, the two have yet to interact in any meaningful way, and her disposition and interests don’t quite match Eloise’s personality and passions. It’s hard to say if Bridgerton will stray so completely from books; so far, Anthony and Daphne have reunited with their love matches from the novels.
However, adding Theo as part of Eloise’s story would be to overlook Bridgerton to simply ditch their budding romance given how well they fit. Eloise doesn’t like the ton and her rules, so it seems normal that she could end up with Theo or, at the very least, someone like him in the future. Suffice it to say that Bridgerton will have to put a lot more effort into Phillip Crane (who is still with Marina Thompson) if the show is to eventually set up his romance with Eloise, as it doesn’t seem possible right now. Without forgetting that Theo is much more the type of Eloise. Phillip in Quinn’s novel is also rather grumpy, aloof, and not the best father to his children, whereas Theo is outgoing and thoughtful.
Eloise leaving in the middle of the night to accept the proposal of a man she had never met is not like something Eloise would do. In addition, Eloise must remain an independent spirit; ending up with Phillip like in the books wouldn’t be the best way to ensure his happiness. For the moment, it is not known if Theo will return to Bridgerton season 3 and, if he does, what his and Eloise’s story might look like if it were to continue. While it seems unlikely that he’ll return, the Netflix series has deviated enough from the books in some ways – altering or adding new elements to the story that weren’t there – that it wouldn’t be impossible. for the main romance of Eloise in Bridgerton to change too.
