Actually, it was Audrey that saw him checking in, not Cooper. It was after

Back when that episode first aired, there was an article posted here that
came from a newspaper article claiming that that MAG was a detective from
Hong Kong who was on Josie's trail. Either that article was wrong, or
Lynch & Frost changed their minds, or his is not the same character as
Jonathan. It's definitely a different actor, though.
