Hmmm. Missed that bit. I'll have to go back and see it again.

But I believe that, even with all these loose ends, he can still solve this
in one more episode. This week's show got all the major players moving on
collision courses. There should be some fireworks at One Eyed Jacks (Audrey,
Ben & Jerry & The Icelanders, Cooper & Ed, Renault), at the Gazebo (Jacoby, 
Leland, Madeline & Donna & James, Bobby possibly), and probably at the mill
(Leo, Josie, Truman, Catherine, possibly Hank). If the preview was anything
to go by, they'll even manage to get the required car chase in. Should be
pretty wild.

As far as Hank stealing the lighter, I think that was also part of the setup
for next week. That pretty much established him as still being a bad-guy.
Maybe he needs the lighter next week.

The Icelandic sing along was a nice bit - especially when Horne tells them
they "have to teach him more of their colorful songs".

Audrey's parts were great. The hiding in the closet routine was slick. She's
hiding in this guy's office closet and smoking. Even if he finds her, what's 
he gonna do about it? She'd probably get a kick out of that too ... totally
in control. The cherry-stem was a nice touch. The opening scene with Cooper
was handled well also ... this is a relationship which almost demands a lot
of time to develop.
