How His Dark Materials' Biggest Change To The Books Is Already Paying Off

Spoilers ahead for Episode 2 of His Dark Materials Season 2 on HBO, called "The Cave."

His Dark Materials returned this fall to begin the adaptation of the second book in Philip Pullman's novel trilogy, and the second episode saw Lyra and Will exploring Will's Earth while Mrs. Coulter and The Magisterium crossed more lines and struck a horrible blow against the witches on Lyra's Earth. The first season of the HBO series didn't follow the plot of the first book, called The Golden Compass, to the letter, and the same is true of the second season so far, but the show's biggest change to the books is already paying off in Season 2.
