Do you have any references for 2?  Yes, Horn clearly knows that he died on
Green, that he is in a different body, and that everybody thinks he's Silk.
But I don't remember any passages indicating that he has drawn the obvious
inference that he is in Silk's body (prior to the talk with Remora).  Nor,
apart from the Pas-on-Blue statement, do I recall him saying anything that
shows he knows that Silk's spirit has merged with his own.
