In the third and final novel of the His Dark Materials series, Lyra and Will discover that they have to return to their respective worlds or they'll eventually grow sick and die, and that they have to close all of the windows to other worlds in order to save mankind, meaning that they will never see each other again.

During their heartbreaking farewell, the pair promise one another that they will come to the botanical gardens and sit on the bench that exists in both of their worlds on the same day every year in order to feel close to one another, leaving fans heartbroken.
Needless to say, viewers were somewhat devastated when the bench made an appearance in episode two, with one writing: "Excuse me is this THE bench, as in... THE. BENCH?!?!?!" Another added: "I’m enjoying a lot of the foreshadowing in #hisdarkmaterials. BUT NOT THIS. THIS WAS A LOW BLOW."

A third person wrote: "The AUDACITY, the sheer disrespect #HisDarkMaterials." Another tweeted: "Me trying to explain the significance of THE BENCH to my mum #HisDarkMaterials."
Season two of the series focuses on the events of The Subtle Knife, where Lyra leaves her own world and finds herself meeting Will in the city of Cittàgazze. Discovering that they are both from different worlds, the pair team up to help one another out.
