Next week on BBC One, His Dark Materials episode 6 is going to air — and we can’t even begin to tell you how important this one is. This is an installment that makes almost everything clear when it comes to the Gobblers in the north, let alone what Lyra is going to be willing to do in order to rescue them.
Below, CarterMatt has the full His Dark Materials episode 6 synopsis with some additional insight regarding what lies ahead:
Lyra discovers the horrific truth behind the Gobblers’ activities in the North. She must use all her wits to help free those around her and avoid suffering a terrible fate.

We’re so close now to the end of the season (just three episodes to go!), and a big part of the story now is going to be seeing how Lyra and everyone else reacts to the tragedy placed before them now. While there is a childlike sense of imagination here and there with this show, tonight was a reminder of just how dark this world can also be. You can’t ever take your eye fully off the metaphorical ball and expect that this is going to be some sort of happy tale.
The death of Billy Costa is in particular one that is going to take a while in order to digest, mostly because we are talking about a significant change from the source material. This is the show trying to stake its own claim to the story, and also allow itself a chance to move at a pace that only makes sense for it. Nonetheless, this is going to be a hard thing for us to digest as a viewer — it adds yet another layer of emotional stakes to Lyra’s journey.
The promo that aired tonight gave you a sense of the facility in question, the place where Lyra is going to experience a lot of torment. It’s guarded by wolves and there is no easy escape … but can Lyra find a way in order to get out?
