Welcome to the episode discussion for the 3rd episode: The Spies, airing tonight (17th November) on BBC One at 8pm GMT and tomorrow (18th November) on HBO at 9pm ET.
This is a place to discuss the show either beforehand (for theories and general excitement), during and after. As there will be many people who have not read the books, spoilers will NOT be allowed for anything other than what happens in this episode and all episodes prior.
With this episode, we'll be seeing a lot more of the gyptians before the real excitement of the TV series begins! Get ready to see more of the alethiometer too!
