‘Bridgerton’ Season 3 Part 2: Fans React to Penelope & Colin Scene

The View Hosts Discuss ‘Bridgerton’ Season 3 Part 2

Recent discussions on The View examined a lengthy six-minute sex scene from the second part of Bridgerton‘s third season. The scene, involving characters Penelope (Nicola Coughlan) and Colin (Luke Newton), sparked varied reactions among the panelists.

Reactions to the Scene

During the conversation, Joy Behar expressed that the scene might have been too explicit, reminiscing about older cinematic traditions where implications were made more subtly. “You could leave a little to the imagination,” Behar said. She suggested that older techniques, like showing waves crashing on a beach, were effective in conveying sexual content.

Behar humorously added, “I could never do a six-minute sex scene. First of all, shouting ‘Get off of me!’ only takes four seconds.”

Different Perspectives

Sunny Hostin appreciated the scene for its portrayal of consent. She recounted, “He says, ‘Do you want this?’ And she says, ‘Yes, definitely.’ And he says, ‘This will hurt, but only once.'”

Ana Navarro also supported the scene’s length but noted her changed perception after meeting Nicola Coughlan in person. Navarro said, “I’m now having a really hard time seeing her naked. She is so sweet and nice and little,” to which Sarah Haines replied, “Even the sweet, nice ones can get naked!”

Panel Consensus

Alyssa Farah Griffin, celebrating her birthday, said, “This is what we tune into Bridgerton for. You want the steamy, romantic sex.” The panel agreed on the positive trend of presenting love scenes from the female gaze, with Haines adding, “I can’t stop gazing.”

Behar concluded the heated discussion with a humorous note, “This is one horny panel.”
