 Episode Review

  It was a good finale. It’s possible that the previous episodes set expectations a little too high, but A Storm for Christmas closes in a satisfying way and on a strong emotional note. All the threads are tied (in a shiny Christmas ribbon, if possible) — Henrik takes the dog and finally commits to something, Diana gets her romantic fantasy but just in another city, Arthur finds his lost muse, Kaja’s parents come back to reality. check it out, Sara meets her father, Ida and Ingwild find a new way to bond, and David finally makes his way to Malaga.

  Ronja and David feel like they were pushed together at the last minute, and the whole deal with Stine could have been done a little better. But the show ends at a point where every character has connected with other people in one way or another, and it’s really fulfilling. All said and done, rose-tinted glasses or not, this is exactly what the ultimate Christmas spirit is all about.
