Will Alison End up with Captain Fraser or Captain Carter in Sanditon? Well, this is the question that is causing people’s minds to whirl these days. So, don’t worry; we’ll answer all of your queries. Well, After the death of her former flame Sidney Parker, Charlotte Heywood returns to the namesake beach resort town in season 2 of ‘Sanditon.’ She is once again the target of affection for two handsome suitors, the charming Colonel Francis Lennox and the moody Alexander Colbourne, upon her homecoming.
In the meantime, her sister Alison Heywood joins her in Sanditon, hoping to find her own prince charming. Captain William Carter and Captain Declan Fraser, two bright young men in Colonel Lennox’s battalion, are also drawn to the attractive lady. The audience wonders who Alison will finally fall in love with as both guys compete for her heart. Let’s take a look at each one of them separately.
Will Alison and Captain Fraser End Up Together?
Well, Captain Declan Fraser is a valiant soldier who has witnessed the horrors of battle and is scarred by his experiences. Fraser is a brutally honest man who doesn’t mince his words and appears to be gruff due to the stress of the battlefield. However, he is acutely aware of his scars on the inside and utilizes humour as a coping mechanism to mask his awkwardness. He is pleased by Alison’s wit when he first meets her in season 2, episode 1.
Alison, on the other hand, prefers to be with Captain William Carter at the Mess Dinner in episode 2, while Declan is depressed. Though he attempts to strike up a conversation with her while they are seated together, she is plainly enamoured with his colleague and does not pay attention to him. Later, Declan assists William with wooing Alison’s proposals, as the latter is inept at it.
Furthermore, when Alison runs with Declan while gathering flowers for the Midsummer Fair in episode 3, she describes him as “unrefined” and expresses her admiration for William once more. Declan then exposes an unexpected element of his personality when he shares the poetry book he brought to battle with William. He claims that it helped him keep his thinking in check, and he suggests that he respond to Alison’s letter with poetry.
Declan gradually reveals that, contrary to Alison’s expectations, he has more in common with her than William. As a result, it’s possible that once she sees it and gets to know Declan better, she’ll regard him as a better match than the one she wants. He, too, may realize that while assisting his friend, he has fallen in love with Alison and will put up a nice fight to capture her heart.
Will Alison and Captain Carter End Up Together?
Colonel Lennox’s battalion’s Captain William Carter is a gorgeous young soldier who looks up to Declan as an older brother and confidante. In comparison to the rest of his unit, he is inexperienced and comes from an affluent and sheltered upbringing. As a result, he frequently acts immaturely and rashly. He saves Alison from a carriage accident in season 2, episode 1, and becomes drawn to her.
Alison is also impressed by the man who saved her and wished to learn more about him. When he personally invites her to the Mess Dinner through Declan, she is overjoyed. She chooses to dance with William instead of ignoring the latter’s efforts at the party. Alison falls in love with him and thinks him to be her hero, despite Georgiana and Charlotte’s warnings not to push things.
Despite the fact that he has Alison’s attention, William is anxious about charming her and seeks Declan’s advice on how to appear polished in front of her without displaying his juvenile side. When Alison inquires about his interest in travel in episode 3, the disparities between his reality and Alison’s opinion of him are further exposed. She also asks him about his wartime memories, and he only gives her a hazy account of an encounter he had in BitterSour.
Meanwhile, William tries to respond appropriately to Alison’s impassioned letter and uses Declan’s poetry book to do it. Later, when Alison is impressed, he is unable to explain why he chose that poetry because he had plagiarised it. Also revealed is that he lied to her about the entire BitterSour narrative, which Declan calls him out on.
William’s behaviours suggest that, while he is interested in Alison, he isn’t sure if he is serious about her. In front of her, he appears to be someone he isn’t, raising her expectations of him. If he continues to be so deceitful and juvenile in his pursuit of Alison, he is very likely to injure her once she sees through his ruse. Nonetheless, if William is truly interested in a future with her, he must make more sincere attempts and tell her the truth.
