His Dark Materials fans left 'screaming at screens' as Lyra and Mrs Coulter finally come to blows – with chilling twist

LYRA and Mrs Coulter brawled in the latest episode of His Dark Materials in shocking scenes.

The pair are known for their dysfunctional relationship, with Mrs Coulter (Ruth Wilson) previously launching an attack on Lyra (Dafne Keen) by using her monkey daemon to pin down Pan.

However, it's safe to say Lyra got her revenge after barging into Lord Boreal's house in Oxford during a plot with Will (Amir Wilson).

Will had snuck into the basement to retrieve Lyra's alethiometer while she kept Boreal distracted at the front door, unaware that Mrs Coulter was lurking down there waiting to pounce.

As he went to grab the device her daemon squared up to him, snatching the trinket and handing it to Mrs Coulter.

Hearing his screams, Lyra rushed downstairs, coming head to head with her mother.


Marissa did her best to persuade Lyra to back down, but her words fell on deaf ears.

Instead, Lyra launched a vicious attack, transforming Pan into a wolverine who pounced upon Coulter's golden monkey.

The balance of power had clearly shifted since their last brawl, with Pan's larger form giving him a clear advantage over the monkey.

As he sank his teeth into him and slammed him against a wall, Coulter was clearly in agony, her eyes streaming with tears as she doubled over.

A snarling Lyra continued the assault – until noticing something disturbing.

Coulter seemed to be disassociating herself with her daemon, shrugging of the pain and beggining to walk towards her.

This should defy the laws of nature, but as we've previously seen, Coulter seems able to distance herself from her daemon, much like a witch.

Fortunately Will was able to open a portal in the nick of time, allowing Lyra to make a hasty escape just before Coulter could turn the tide of the battle.

The dramatic scenes went down a storm with fans, who took to Twitter in excitement.

"F***ing SCREAMING at this fight between Marissa and Lyra. Revenge is a dish best served with a Wolvernine, apparently," one user wrote.

"Loved seeing Wolverine Pan owning that spiteful monkey of Marisa Coulter’s," a second chimed in.

"Pan vs Coulter’s Daemon was visceral," a third chimed in.

While a fourth added: "I feel that Coulter is in so much pain already that she actually fought through that scene where Pan attacked her Daemon and EMBRACED it!" alongside a pair of crying emojis.

The furore comes after fans reacted to Lyra and Will finally meeting last month.

Elsewhere, Game of Thrones fans were quick to point out that Angelica was being played by Bella Ramsey, who starred as the formidable Lady Mormont in the HBO epic.

Meanwhile  Lord Boreal actor Ariyon Bakare lifted the lid on his "emotionless, power-hungry, megalomaniac" character in the coming episodes.

His Dark Materials airs Sunday on BBC One at 8pm and is available to stream on iPlayer.
