Let’s take a quick recap of where we left off season 1 of Gentleman Jack?
In season 1 of gentleman jack, Anne Lister defied all expectations of a Victorian woman of her gender and status, as shown in her volumes of coded journals that remained concealed for decades after her death.
Demure demeanor, perfect stitching, and happy marriage were not for her. Instead, she was a waistcoat-wearing, man-confronting explorer who preferred the lady’s approach to love. While Anne Lister’s unusual masculinity earned her the nickname “Gentleman Jack” in her hometown of Halifax, West Yorkshire, history subsequently acclaimed her as “the first modern lesbian.”
The return of Anne Lister to Shibden Hall
In gentleman jack, It’s 1882 when we first meet Anne, who is brilliantly portrayed by Suranne Jones, and she’s returning from her travels to take over the family estate, Shibden Hall in West Yorkshire.
Anne’s brash personality in gentleman jack and her abrasive demeanor rapidly become apparent as she adjusts to her new circumstances. After her coach driver’s arm is broken, she takes the wheel and drives herself the remainder of the journey.
The first season of Gentleman Jack wraps off with Anne Lister marrying a bride.
We meet the perfumed and feminine gentleman jack of Ann Walker and Anne Lister’s affluent, unmarried neighbor in the opening episode of Gentleman Jack season 1. Anne doesn’t take long to establish her signature top Ann in gentleman jack although for her assets more than for love at this point.
It doesn’t take long for Ann to succumb to Anne’s alluring charms. For the record, in Gentleman Jack, there is a mix-up of Ann/es since our Anne’s loving tante (Gemma Jones) – who lives at Shibden with Anne’s sister Marian and father Jeremy – is also called Anne.
Then there’s Ann’s taste. In any case, Anne and Ann’s romance runs through the first season of Gentleman Jack.

The Plot of Gentleman Jack, season 2
In the plot of gentleman jack, the townsfolk are terrified of Anne Lister’s business energy as much as her unusual love life, and with Halifax on the verge of upheaval, her reluctance to keep a low profile becomes provocative and deadly.
The first season of gentleman jack ending features a modest yet moving sequence. After taking the sacrament and privately exchanging rings, Anne Lister and Ann Walker leave the church in York as ‘newlyweds,’ and begin squabbling affectionately over where to go next.
This is a foreshadowing of what is to come. Wainwright explains her decision to conclude the play on this note by saying, “I didn’t want it to be too schmaltzy, I wanted to illustrate that when people get married, they start squabbling very fast.”
