Birgitte has left politics and is a well-paid speaker siting on several boards. Her old friend Bent Sejro tries to persuade her to re-enter politics. Katrine and Kasper juggle their careers and parenthood.
Chaos and confusion rule in the party rooms of the New Democrats. Chaos also rules at home as Gustav is sick, and Birgitte and the children move into a new, cheaper apartment. Birgitte has a problem with one of her hands.
There's unrest amongst the New Democrats when the sex trade is put on the agenda. Police find 3 women who've been forced to have sex against their will. This causes the parties to discuss the need for a law prohibiting the purchase of sex.
When the New Democrats are invited to join a broad coalition of opposition parties they think it is the recognition they have been seeking. But Birgitte soon finds she has no bargaining power whatsoever, much to Nete's disgust.
Birgitte quickly realizes that the New Democrats are now minor players in the opposition coalition and she pulls them out of it. The Moderates seem to be proposing things that Birgitte has privately discussed - is there a mole?
After the leaks to the Moderates, Birgitte decides that the New Democrats need to distinguish themselves from the Moderates. So in a debate she launches a bold attack on their leader Jacob Kruse - will her strategy work?
Kruse's outburst in the pre-election debate proves fatal to the Moderates and the New Democrats pick up more than double the predicted seats. Suddenly, Birgitte is being courted by both the left and right wing coalition groups.
