Lyra’s (Dafne Keen) journey to save the missing children will begin in “His Dark Materials” Season 1, episode 2. Promo videos of the next episode shows her running away and recruiting people to join her cause.

Marisa Coulter (Ruth Wilson) will take Lyra to her new home in the next episode, a promo video shows. Instead of spending her time in luxury and learning from Marisa about wielding power, the young girl will be obsessed with finding the missing Gyptian children. This obsession will make her run away.

27 Gyptian children are missing, and they have all been taken north. There is growing discontent amongst the people, and they are ready to rise up and fight in order to find out the truth. The secret of the missing children has something to do with dust, which only affects grownups.

The promo video shows no one is telling Lyra the complete truth, but that will not stop her for long. She will come into possession of an alethiometer, which will reveal all secrets.

Lyra will start recruiting people to her cause in “His Dark Materials” episode 2. Arguably the strongest ally she will recruit is an armored bear called Iorek Byrnison (Joe Tandberg).

Another promo video of the next episode shows Lyra going to the kingdom of the bears. Iorek will be involved in an epic bear fight before Lyra continues her journey north.

Marisa will also be busy in the next episode searching for Lyra. She will only begin to understand the importance of the girl in the events as they unfold. The Magisterium, whose authority is being challenged by all these new ideas, will also want to stop any research about discovering new worlds.

Meanwhile, BBC One has shared a video of the cast members talking about what kind of a demon they would like to have in their life. The answers ranged from a silverback gorilla to a butterfly.

“His Dark Materials” Season 1, episode 2 airs on Nov. 11 at 9 p.m. EST on HBO. The episode is titled “The Idea of the North.”
