A lot has happened during the month in which Birgitte has been on leave from the post of prime minister: Hans-Christian Thorsen, chairman of the Labour Party, has as Birgitte's deputy positioned himself to be a possible successor, which particularly annoys Birgitte's loyal press officer, Kasper. But Kasper also has plenty to think about in his personal life, as he and Katrine are looking at apartments together. This plan, however, is derailed by an argument about whether or not there should be room for children. Birgitte has been at home for a month, and now finally has the time for her family that she lacked when she was prime minister. She supports Laura, who is still at Liseholm, and she cooks a hot meal every evening.
