Who Is Bridgerton Season 2 Episode 8 Dedicated To?

"Bridgerton" is the latest period drama to take the world by storm. After a long hiatus, the show has returned for its second season, allowing Netflix subscribers to get lost in more romantic melodrama, extravagant costumes, and risque moments involving a diverse range of characters from privileged backgrounds. Season 2 takes the hit series in some interesting new directions, but the creators of "Bridgerton" have carried over some notable traditions from the previous installment.

Based on Julia Quinn's series of novels, "Bridgerton" follows an upper-class family as they look for love and attempt to navigate the elite social hierarchy of Regency London, making friends and enemies along the way. Season 1 primarily revolves around Lady Daphne Bridgerton (Phoebe Dynevor) and Simon Basset, aka the Duke of Hastings (Regé-Jean Page), as their love blossoms and leads to marriage. The latest chapter, meanwhile, centers most of the drama around Viscount Bridgerton (Jonathan Bailey) and Kate Sharma (Simeone Ashley) as they encounter their own romantic highs and lows.

The newest season of "Bridgerton" also continues the series' trend of dedicating episodes to people who have passed on in recent times. The creators paid tribute to a stunt performer named Brian Nickels during the Season 1 finale (via Heart), and the closing episode of part two gives a shout-out to another deceased film and television veteran.

Bridgerton Season 2 is dedicated to Carole Prentice

"Bridgerton" Season 2's final moments pay tribute to a film and television veteran by the name of Carole Prentice. While the show's creators have yet to discuss the tribute at the time of this writing, it's highly likely that the tribute was dedicated to the producer whose list of credits boasts "Star Trek Beyond" and "Healthline" (per IMDb). According to Mandy, Prentice spent 25 years in "the business of management, budgeting, and scheduling of movies and commercials" before eventually transitioning into events management. It is unknown when she passed away, though comments shared on her Facebook page suggest that it occurred earlier this year.

Prentice's work took her all over the world, and it's clear that she had a positive effect on those who knew her. "My sister, my friend, my mentor," wrote one Facebook user in response to her passing. "I will carry you in my heart, I will carry you in my soul. Never to be forgotten," they added.
