As the final season tackles “The Amber Spyglass,” the strangest and largest installment in author Philip Pullman’s series of books, it will be intriguing to see how they weave together all those complex concepts and intertwined stories in fewer than ten episodes, especially considering that producer Jane Tranter originally intended to split the final book into two separate seasons.
