Find it a bit odd that they write an article full of spoilers for the Norwegian who it's intended for. Dan has yet to appear on screen, so the Patterson-Bakers family is a major spoiler! :P

People will probably think that Leah will marry Peter :P

I think it's kinda weird that Tv2 would write an article about it. They always seem to think that the show isn't popular..

I know. I was kind of surprised myself.

Thanks for posting Mar :)
