Her Dark Materials is a bi-weekly podcast hosted by Faye and Rachael discussing the His Dark Materials novels chapter by chapter, spoiler-free.
In this episode we chat about Chapter 20 of Northern Lights – À Outrance.
In this chapter, Iorek arrives at the bear palace and Lyra tells him he must fight Iofur to the death. They get in the goriest most badass bear fight anyone has ever seen, which Iorek wins to become the new king of the bears. Lyra finds out that Mrs Coulter was behind all of the bear conflict and is on her way to Svalbard. Iorek agrees to take Lyra to see Asriel.
