Too many inmates seem to be getting religion, so a rabbi comes to visit and Leanne tries to organize Norma's followers.

This seems a strange characterization from Leanne based on her behavior in seasons 1 and 2 - she didn't come across as particularly religious or knowledgeable about religion when 'tucky was going on her Rants and raves about Jesus...nor did she seem to have a strong bossy streak or structure requirement...but I guess shoe horning in her backstory doesn't have to take any of that into consideration this season

Yeah, Leanne's backstory really comes out of nowhere. It's intriguing but doesn't really fit her previous characterisation. It fits well with Norma's "meditation group" so I guess they needed someone to express the spiritual significance. She does it so beautifully, and it's delightfully surprising coming from her.

I'm enjoying the story arc about the celebrity chef. I guess it's a nod at Martha Stewart?

Yes, but with the extra cooking using 'ready' ingredients and weight and accent perhaps a bit of Sandra Lee and Paula Deen to boot.
