Hi there, listeners! I’m very proud and relieved that Owen and I have been able to maintain our bi-weekly schedule on this series, because there is so much great stuff coming up and I want some of the previous chapters to be fresh in his mind when we finally start to get to those sections. These books are crazy.
This section, we re-join Arya and Will in the land of the dead, and they’re finally figuring out what their plan should be. Arya decides that they should cut a hole into the nearest world and let the ghosts of the dead free, and both Will and the Gallivespians think this is a totally awesome idea. They have to make a deal with the Harpies in order to make it happen, but it looks like it’s going to work out.
And then in the other chapter we’re back with Mrs. Coulter after a long hiatus without her. She’s tailed, unknown to her until later, by Lord Roke, and it’s lucky she was. After taking some of Lyra’s hair from her to use in a giant, over-powered weapon, the priests and monks are planning to lock her up and do who knows what. Mrs. Coulter seems to have a plan though, and when she looks at Lord Roke he knows what it is almost immediately. The only people who don’t know are the readers.
Thank you again for listening, see you high-rolling Patrons later tonight with Twin Peaks!
