I think he's happy all right, but not for that reason. I'm guessing his calm demeanor is about to change now that Bohannon is back, especially given the synopsis of his character on the Hell on Wheels website:
Thor Gundersen is known as “The Swede” despite his Norwegian heritage. Appointed head of security of Hell on Wheels by Thomas Durant, he was charged with maintaining a semblance of order in the chaotic and dangerous railroad town. A man of puritan simplicity and a survivor by nature — he survived the horrors of a Confederate POW camp, Andersonville, during the Civil War — The Swede is convinced that Cullen Bohannon is a murderer and becomes obsessed with bringing him to justice.
Now that Gunderson has been relegated to emptying chamber pots and disposing of dead bodies, his hatred can only be festering and I'm guessing will come to a boil before season's end.
