A distressing event causes the matriarch Helga to make a new attempt to reunite the family, but Gustaf is still hurt and simply not interested. Peter's wife Ester feels unfairly left out of the running of the restaurant and tries to cause a rift between Peter and Nina. Nina struggles with her relationship with her daughter, and on Christmas Eve, she gives Calle a long-awaited Christmas present. Maggan meanwhile gets an unwelcome visit from the past.
