The Mane Events
Bon Bon is taking Lyra to the Grand Galloping Gala. She buys her a diamond necklace, and a dress. They head to the gala, and a stray carriage rolls down the hill toward Lyra.

Bon Bon doll tries to convince Lyra to kill herself, but Lyra has had enough and captures the doll. She puts it in a box of Bon Bon’s things, and then burns the box.
