The director defends this rape scene which is controversial among fans of the Netflix series


TV shows

#This scene in particular has questioned many #Internet users. #Attention, spoiler.

#We already told you about the new #Netflix phenomenon series: “The #Bridgertons #Chronicle”. #Inspired by the world of #Jane #Austen and #Gossip #Girl, it is a real hit with young people, although it is widely criticized for its historical digressions and its sometimes dubious scriptwriting choices. #Recently, it was a controversy surrounding a rape scene that brought the series back to the fore. #Several #Internet users were indeed surprised by the scene in which #Daphé tries to force #Simon to give him a child.

#This scene takes place as the heroine #Daphné discovers the pleasures of sexuality in her new married life. #She also learns how a couple conceives a child, something her mother had never taught her. #She then understands that #Simon lied to her by suggesting his sterility when he in fact simply refuses to give birth to an heir, following an oath taken to his father on his deathbed in order to take revenge on the latter.

#Daphne then tries to force the #Duke to come inside her. A scene that was akin to marital rape for many, while the rape of men is still largely under-represented and very often taboo. #One of the two directors, #Chris #Van #Dusen, nevertheless wanted to justify the choice of this sequence in an interview for #Entertainment #Weekly : « #We had a lot of discussion about this specific scene in the novel. J‘ve always thought that this first season corresponded to “The sentimental education” of #Daphné. #This incident fits very well with the overall theme of the series, which is learning. #We watch this wise and tidy young girl grow into a woman who manages to let go of all the constraints inherent in the society in which she grew up. #She finally discovers who she really is and what she is capable of.. »

A debate which has the merit of putting the debate on marital rape (here against the man in addition) on the table. #For its part, TVLine announces that a season 2 would already be planned for the series, even if nothing has yet been confirmed by #Netflix.
