I could be wrong but if I remember in the books, <SPOILERS OBVIOUSLY>

Lyra ends up or at least develops a romantic relationship with Will. I dunno, maybe I just personally see Dafne Keen as looking like she’s 12 but I see a huge age difference between both her and Amir Wilson.

Granted, I assume this show will go on for a while.
