"Searching For" Pete Martell stands over the still chessboard as Truman and Cooper flank him and drink coffee while looking concerned. Truman intercoms to Lucy to get the Gazette on the phone and extend the deadline for personals submission, just as Pete settles on a move which, he tells them, "That's it." Cooper needs to make sure Windom can't remove any more pieces from the board, and we're assured that it can't be done "for five, six more moves." Truman notes that he's "never heard of someone who murdered by the rules" because we've never, not once, heard a thing about that being an essential component of Earl's makeup. So it's important that we hear it again. They are soon to be interrupted by Albert, who calls Cooper out of the office. The Seattle police have an eyewitness account placing Josie at the scene of where Asian Man was Killed!!! Albert would consider it a personal affront if Cooper "ain't gonna bust this bitch," and Truman walks by just then to see the two men looking very you're-girlfriend-sure-is-one-busted-bitch.
Speaking of which, Ms. Glatter saw fit to recall the very first shot of the entire series, that moment in the pilot which finds Josie staring into the mirror sitting on her desk. Andrew knocks and enters with two glasses of champagne, creating insta-backstory in telling us, "I assume you still have a taste for bubbly. We killed enough bottles in our time." He toasts from The Big Book Of Death Knell Sounding Fortune Cookies, offering the words, "To beginnings and endings, and the wisdom to know the difference," opting for that one instead of the slightly more literal, "You will soon be going on a long journey TO HELL!" She takes a moment to apologize to him. He tells her, "I hated you at first." Word. I'm warming to this guy by the second. Except for the narrowing, reductive nature of the "at first" part, of course. Andrew surmises that Eckhardt arranged the whole thing and told Josie lies, lies, lies, yeah, about Andrew never being in love with her. Andrew tells her that "the police are closing in," and that she needs to see Eckhardt if she has any intent of escaping alive. He doesn't know that Andrew is alive, after all, and Eckhardt can smuggle her out of the country. Andrew leaves and Josie falls to her knees onto the wooden floor. Where I guess her future sees her taking a lot of vacations. The floor can be so lovely this time of year for the wood-dwellers and other assorted convenient plot resolutions.
