*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
While we were very surprised to learn that the woman behind the mysterious writer Lady Whistledown was Penelope Featherington, actress Nicola Coughlan revealed that viewers could have figured it out from the very first episode. According to the 34-year-old, there was one major Easter egg (which she planted) in her character’s first scene that gave it away.
“Ok I’m just curious,” Coughlan wrote on Twitter over the weekend. “Has anyone spotted the massive Easter Egg about Penelope in the very first scene of Bridgerton? I’m very impressed with those that spotted it! I decided on a prop for the scene where you first see Penelope, that prop happened to be a giant feather that looked a lot like...a quill.”
