Anthony is the Viscount of the Bridgerton family, assuming the role after the death of his father, Edmund Bridgerton (via The Express). At the end of Season 1, Anthony admitted to his family that he was finally ready to settle down and that he planned to find a suitable wife to share his life with.

Of course, fans who have read the book series by author Julia Quinn already have some idea of what to expect when it comes to Anthony's love life. However, for those looking for some major spoilers about Season 2, read on to find out how Anthony's journey ends in the novels.

According to PopSugar, "Bridgerton" viewers will watch as Anthony (Jonathan Bailey) sets out to find a wife. In the book series, Anthony doesn't plan to find a woman to fall head over heels with. Instead, he's looking for someone who will be suitable to spend his life with and have children with. Since Anthony doesn't believe he'll live a long life, he's not too worried about falling in love. He's just looking for someone who is beautiful and smart. After learning that one of the most sought-after single women in the marriage market is Edwina Sheffield he decides that he'll go after her hand in marriage. However, Edwina has promised not to marry anyone who doesn't get her sister Kate's approval.

Of course, Kate doesn't approve of Anthony. However, as the two spend more time together, they realize that they're attracted to one another despite their annoyance with each other. Meanwhile, after a strange situation, the two find themselves in a compromising position, and Anthony and Kate are forced to marry in order to avoid scandal. In the end, Anthony finally comes to terms with his love for Kate, and the two declare their love for each other. In turn, Kate teaches Anthony to enjoy the good things in life instead of dreading what could be.

Of course, Netflix could change some details for the show. However, it seems that Kate will be the woman in Anthony's arms either way.
