Neobie:
Here are the known flights:

Boston to London, evening 26 May
AA 108, 1940-0700 (scheduled 1915-0650)
VS 12, 2002-0726 (scheduled 1945-0720)
London to Accra, evening 28 May
VS 657, 2254-0435 (scheduled 2230-0415)
Accra to Frankfurt, evening 31 May
LH 567, 2203-0638 (scheduled 2155-0630)
...
Stockholm to St Petersburg, morning 5 Jun
SK 732, 1014-1333 (scheduled 1000-1325)

The first Stockholm sighting at Arlanda Intl was posted on the evening of 1 Jun. According to the Accra spoiler, teams arrived in Frankfurt on the morning of that same day. That's not enough for a leg and a Pit Stop, but it's way too long for a connection. Could the poster have seen the teams earlier in the day, then waited all the way until 2am to post? What could have happened here?

If so, I guess we can explain the long wait in Stockholm as one leg on the 1st, and another on the 3rd. St Petersburg would then take place on the 5th. But that also means that the two legs between the Stockholm sightings are not geographically close to each other, so that an extra day is needed for Phil to film his stand-ups. So tentatively...

Maybe they arrived on the evening of 1 Jun,then they need to go to somewhere already closed,so they had to wait and start this leg in 2 Jun. And 2nd leg in sweden race in 3 Jun,they had a extend pitstop until 4 Jun.

You may be right, but teams flying straight from Accra to Stockholm are likely to have made it into Sweden by 9.35am, and if they miss that, at 11.50am. They'd have to have travelled quite a bit to run into an Hours of Operation on the evening of 1 Jun. So two possibilities...

I somehow doubt TAR would want to revisit Stockholm. Perhaps a train ride is in order?

That's what I think too.  They could have visited northern Sweden by train, and flew to St Petersburg via Stockholm.  Possible!?
