What Happens to Simon Basset in Bridgerton Season 1?
Simon entertains Daphne one last time by welcoming her sister Francesca (Ruby Stokes) home and throwing the season's final ball. Before everything unfolds, he goes to the match to support Will Mondrich (Martins Imhangbe), who's in cahoots with Lord Featherington. Simon figures out that Will lost deliberately and expresses his disapproval, so we'll have to see if Will faces any consequences for the questionable scheme.
After the party, Simon confesses to Daphne that he doesn't want to be alone. They hook up once more. This time, Simon doesn't — there's no delicate way to put this — pull out. Fast-forward some time after their steamy shenanigans, Daphne gives birth to their son. Simon seems more than elated, suggesting that they honor the Bridgerton alphabetical naming tradition by giving him a name that starts with the letter A.
