What could Benjamin Horne be up to?  In his talk with Leo (5/3
episode) he seemed to imply that he was involved in more than just
drug trafficking and burning down saw mills.  I'd be willing to bet
that he was trying to sell the Norwegians (and now the Icelanders)
more than just real estate.  And did he mention Hank (Norma's soon to
be paroled husband) as being involved in his deals?  What we've seen
of Josie in this episode looks sinister but maybe she's just trying to
defend herself or at least find out what Catherine and Ben are doing.
(She's convinced they might try to kill her.)  Hank might have offered
her his services as a spy.

The scene where Truman, Cooper, and the deputies go down in the
basement for target practice and Cooper tries to cheer up Andy
was wonderfully funny, and even touching.  "Chin up Andy, chin up."
It makes you painfully aware of how rare it is to find characters on
TV that inspire any real affection or sympathy, and it raises the show
above the level of a simple
clockwork/intellectual-puzzle/murder-mystery.

What a spectacularly good series.  I haven't had this much fun
watching TV since I was a little kid.
