VICTORIA: “Young England” – To a New Generation! {Recap}

By  | 

Victoria ended its first season with a bang (literally) and a baby, with many machinations in between.

Victoria (Jenna Coleman) is just weeks away from giving birth to her first child, and all of England is worried. Or trying to kill her, depending on their leanings.

The household staff is trying to ready the house for the new child, including Victoria’s request for a wet nurse, which confuses Penge to no end, but Lord Cumberland, or the King of Hanover, also returns to England as heir presumptive.

Hanover has amassed a following of young men, calling themselves Young England, and one of their ranks chooses to shoot at Victoria and Albert (Tom Hughes) a few days after Victoria was accosted by a Captain, who has been writing her for years in an attempt to remove her from Prince Albert. To see both the Captain and the man from Young England worries Albert, as well as King Leopold and others who have come to see to her through childbirth.

Prince Ernest (David Oakes) also comes to visit to see the first of his niece or nephew, but he also can’t let go of his flirtation with the Dutchess of Sutherland.

In the end, Victoria does give birth to a healthy baby girl, Victoria.

What we don’t know as the end of this season of Victoria wraps up is where the next season will take the young queen and her husband and an England on its way to economic domination in Europe.

Victoria will hopefully return next year with another season on PBS.

Roz lives in the Los Angeles area, and has been a long time California girl. Despite her better judgment, she enjoys shows about the shallow sides of her home city, but will also find time to watch iZombie, Jane the Virgin, and much more. With a love of history, she also watches anything that is grounded in real life, including Victoria and black-ish. Having worked with children, she also follows shows she knows they watch (reminding her of those days of yore for her in the process). Contact her at roz@nicegirlstv.com.
