Torben is fired on the morning of election day after refusing to follow Alex's demands, but is reinstated later after his colleagues threaten to strike. Following Kruse's outburst against Nyborg during the last debate on TV1, support for the New Democrats surges on polling day and they manage to capture 13 seats compared to just 5 for the Moderates. Both the Red (left-leaning) and Blue (right-leaning) coalition try to pull the New Democrats into their government as both need the New Democrats to make a majority in parliament. Birgitte is offered the post of Prime Minister with the Red coalition, but this would include the Freedom Party whose anti-immigration policies are diametrically opposed to the values of the New Democrats. Ultimately she decides to join the Blue coalition, and the series ends with Birgitte on her way to Borgen as the new minister of foreign affairs.
