What Happens to Daphne Bridgerton in Bridgerton Season 1?
Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), has planned to separate from Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) should she get her courses (aka her period). Lo and behold, she gets her courses. While still clearly in love, they put together the final ball of the season as their last hurrah. As she coordinates the party, Daphne comes across her husband's childhood letters to his father and speaks with Lady Danbury (Adjoa Andoh) about Simon's past. The ball starts off splendidly, then rain pours down on the guests. Daphne has a moment of clarity and professes her love to Simon, Meredith Grey-style.
