His Dark Materials is back! Episode one of Season two just aired on BBC One in the UK, and if you want to recap what happened, here’s what went down.
Following Lord Asriel’s tear through the worlds, Lyra and Pan journeyed to the strangely deserted city of Cittàgazze.
Whilst the Magisterium refuses to acknowledge this new world exists, Mrs Coulter interrogated Katja, an imprisoned witch. Lyra crossed paths with Will Parry, who she reluctantly teamed up with. While exploring the city, they met children who warned them about Spectres.
Although children are unaffected by Spectres, they can consume the souls of adults. At the witch council, Lee Scoresby revealed he is seeking out an explorer who could offer Lyra protection. Against Serafina’s wishes, Ruta tried to rescue Katja. Lyra realised there is an Oxford in Will’s world too, and he reluctantly agreed to take her.
