* TheGlovesComeOff: The Gyptians are so horrified by Billy's mutilation at the hands of the Oblation Board that they change their plans. Originally it was just a rescue mission. Now, regarding the Gobblers, they plan on [[KillEmAll killing all of them.]]

* AmbiguousDisorder: Elaine Parry suffers form of mental illness, for which she is taking medication, but the episode doesn't put a fine point one what. Her son Will has been [[PromotionToParent promoted to parent]] in order to care for her.


* CruelToBeKind: Farder Coram doesn't mince words with Serafina during their reunion, telling her outright that he did not call on her because he misses her (he does) but because the Gyptian rescue party will be slaughtered Bolvangar's defenses without her aid.

* MundaneUtility: Iorek, the mighty armored bear warrior, ends up using his strength to help pull one of the Gyptian sleds (and the tractor that was supposed to pull it originally) up a steep hill. John Faa admits he was wrong originally to doubt Iorek, and he is actually very useful even without his fighting abilities.

* SuicideMission: The Gyptians are starting to view their quest as this, as the hard march through the arctic and knowledge of Bolvangar's defenses weighs on them. Farder Coram makes an impassioned plea for Serafina Pekkala's help in keeping the upcoming battle from becoming a bloodbath.

* MayDecemberRomance: Fadar Coram's concerns that concerns that Serafina won't like how he's aged become slightly more justified with the reveal that she [[Really700YearsOld is over 300 years old]], but looks maybe 30. She dismisses the concerns all the same.

* BecauseDestinySaysSo: The alethiometer tells Lyra that something mysterious is in a neighboring village, and it will help the Gyptians on their mission, but it won't give specifics, only that they ''need'' to go see it. She spends part of the first act trying to convince them to let her investigate it. Eventually, Ma Costa gives her permission.

* ForgottenFirstMeeting: Invoked by Lord Boreal in his attempt to Gaslight/interrogate Elaine Parry. He pretends to be a colleague of her missing husband, using the name "Charles Latrom" and claims he met while serving with John in the military, counting on her illness to confuse her enough for it to work.
* GhostTown: Iorek and Lyra seek out a small fishing village a few hours from the Gyptian path. It's abandoned, except for Billy, who is mostly dead, and yet the power is still on. There is nothing outright dangerous, but Lyra is terrified, and even Iorek is unsettled by it. What's worse is that we are never given an explanation for [[NothingIsScarier why it's abandoned, or how Billy got there, or who locked him up]].

Added DiffLines:

* UncertainDoom: Lyra is knocked out during the Tartar's raid on the Gyptians, and wakes up at Bolvangar. The audience is just as clueless as to who else survived the attack as she is.


* HopeSpot: Lyra's been kidnapped, but realizes her kidnappers don't know who she is. Then she sees where she is: Bolvangar. It doesn't matter who she is here.



* ShamefulStrip: Lyra is forced to strip down by the nurses at Bolvangar. It's meant to intimidate and humiliate her, but she largely takes it as an annoyance. At least until she recognizes from the coveralls in a nearby cabinet just ''where'' she actually is. ''Then'' she [[OhCrap begins to freak out]].
