The Bridgerton fan gave away a spoiler about the series, which literally ruined the mystery for anyone yet to watch the entire first season of the Regency-era drama. Kim has been on a roller-coaster ride in terms of her Bridgerton relationship. Days after starting her binge-watch and was found swooning over Rege-Jean Page’s Instagram, it was revealed that Page will not return to the renewed second season of the show.
