HDM 1.2: Mrs. Coulter Gets Super Dark

Spoilers ahead!

Boy is it getting DUST-y in here. (Haw haw, get it?)

The second episode of HBO’s His Dark Materials sees Lyra travel to London with Mrs. Coulter as the Gyptians track down the so-called Gobblers and try to find their kidnapped children.

After some monkey business in Mrs. Coulter’s study, Lyra discovers that her surrogate mother is up to something in the North, but it’s not entirely clear what.

Also in this episode, a party crasher reveals the most Scooby-Doo clue about who’s behind the Gobblers, Lyra learns who she can give a “worst father of the year” mug to on Father’s Day, Mrs. Coulter dresses Lyra up as her mini-me and someone travels to another universe to … drink coffee?
