Helmer Jr. launches a terror attack on the Kingdom and its Danish inhabitants, though he is challenged by problems of a more private nature that land him in legal troubles. The madness is driving him to the point of no return. Evil forces continue to challenge Karen and Bulder’s task.

MUBI's take

This episode finds Lars von Trier on dexterous form, leaning harder into horror while upping the comic stakes in the war between the Swedes and Danes. As Helmer encourages acts of minor sabotage, from feigning illness to asking stupid questions, Christmas is approaching, and the apocalypse is nigh.
