[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for all of Season 1 of Bridgerton.]

Dear reader, Lady Whistledown (voiced by Julie Andrews) may apprise you of the scandalous happenings of Regency London’s competitive marriage market, but not everything makes it into her scandal sheet.

At the center of Netflix’s original series Bridgerton is the relationship between Daphne (Phoebe Dynevor) and the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page). It’s initially a match they aim to satisfy both their desires but unsurprisingly becomes (so much) more, only to hit a major roadblock.

Lustier than the average Masterpiece, this is Shonda Rhimes' stylish if overwrought series debut at the Netflix ball.

But theirs isn’t the only romance playing out throughout the series’ eight episodes. It’s a rocky road for pretty much every single one, so below, we give you the relationship statuses of six key relationships of Bridgerton.

Daphne and the Duke

Their marriage is all but over in everything but name — he lies and says he can’t have kids, when he won’t (due to a promise he made to his horrible father), so she tries to trick him into having a baby — until halfway through the finale. She read his letters to his father and assures him his father was the problem, not him.

Daphne confesses she loves all of him, and the Duke admits he doesn’t know how to be the man she deserves. He just needs to stay, she says, and he does. And they do get through it. In fact, the season ends with them having their (first) child, whose name must begin with “A,” a tradition of the Bridgerton family.

Marina and...

The Featheringtons take in their cousin, Marina (Ruby Barker, above with a potential suitor early on in the season). She’s pregnant, and there’s no word from the father … until the finale. His brother, Sir Philip, arrives with news that he died on the battlefield.

“After my brother clearly took liberties with your virtue, I would merely be doing my duty,” he says, proposing. But thinking she’s no longer with child, she rejects him. Once she realizes she’s still pregnant (the doctor admonishes her for thinking tea could cause a miscarriage), however, she leaves for a life with Philip.

Anthony and Siena

The Bridgerton viscount has hopes that he and the opera singer can make it work, but she’s much more realistic. Anthony (Jonathan Bailey, above) even invites Siena (Sabrina Bartlett) to a ball, and while she thinks about going, she ultimately doesn’t – and he finds her with another man when he goes to inquire as to why.

“I am looking out for myself. I am ensuring my own future because I know in my heart there is no one else who ever will,” she explains, urging him to let her go. “I am comfortable. I am content. That gentleman upstairs sees me for who I am. Unlike you … he does not wish for me to change, and neither do I.”

And after their farewell, Anthony decides he’s going to look ahead to finding a match — but one without love.

Benedict and Genevieve Delacroix

Another one of the Bridgerton brothers, Benedict (Luke Thompson) finds joy in his relationship with modiste Genevieve Delacroix (Kathryn Drysdale, above right); they both prefer the less formal parties. Sure, they have to hide their relationship from pretty much everyone — he tells a couple of his siblings — but it works for them and at season’s end, they’re still together.

Penelope and Colin

Ah, the unrequited (potential) match. Colin Bridgerton (Luke Newton) falls for friend Penelope Featherington’s (Nicola Coughlan) cousin Marina. Her attempt to talk him out of it — knowing of Marina’s feelings for George — causes a rift in their friendship. But just as they make up and she seems to be steeling herself to tell him how she feels … he reveals he’s leaving town.

Portia and Lord Featherington

“You find things to love,” Portia (Polly Walker) advises Marina when asked how she endured years of marriage without love. And those things explain her reaction (it looks like she will miss him) when the Lord (Ben Miller) ends up dead — he thinks the family’s financial problems are solved with his winnings from betting on a boxing match, but that isn’t the case — and she gazes upon their bed.
