Branch has also entered the election, to unseat Longmire, and he is secretly dating Cady.
Victoria "Vic" Moretti (Katee Sackhoff), a transplanted Philadelphia homicide detective, arrived in Wyoming six months prior and works as one of Walt's deputies.
In the third season, as Branch recovers from being shot, he comes to believe he was shot by David Ridges, a Cheyenne who was thought to have committed suicide and been cremated.
Walt and the others do not believe him, and he begins his own investigation.
In prison, Henry is abused by other Native Americans, led by former Cheyenne reservation police chief Malachi Strand (Graham Greene).
Strand believes Henry contributed to his arrest through his friendship with Walt.
Henry tells Walt that he killed the murderer because Walt was unable to do so.
Vic encounters Ed Gorski (Lee Tergesen), a retired cop from Philadelphia.
Walt believes Nighthorse might have had a part in his wife's murder.
He begins to believe that Branch is obsessed by his ideas about Ridges and suspends him temporarily, putting him in the care of his father Barlow.
The show centers on Walt Longmire, a sheriff in fictional Absaroka County, Wyoming.
