The plot of season 3

Penelope Featherington (Nicola Coughlan) has finally given up on her longtime crush on Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) after hearing his derogatory comments about her last season. However, she has decided that it is time to find a husband, preferably someone who gives her enough independence to continue her double life as Lady Whistledown, away from her mother and sisters. But, due to her lack of self-confidence, Penelope’s attempts to find a husband blatantly fail. Meanwhile, Colin is back from his summer travels with a new look and a cheeky swagger. But he is disheartened to realize that Penelope, the one person who has always appreciated him the way he was, treats him coldly. Eager to win back his friendship, this season Colin offers to mentor Penelope to help her find a husband. But when his lessons start working a little too well, Colin has to figure out if his feelings for Penelope are really just friendship. Complicating matters for Penelope is her estrangement from Eloise (Claudia Jessie), who has found a new friendship in a very unlikely place, while Penelope’s increasingly assiduous presence in London high society makes it even more difficult to keep her secret. his alter ego of Lady Whistledown.
