This is Season 7 episode 5: The Inamorata Consequence.

  • I don’t think it was political commentary. That setup is about as old a cliché as it gets, so I think that was just Hammer and Publick having their fun with it. It also fits so well with the universe and all the characters present that I don’t think there is anything more behind it.

    The authors’ interest in ripped ladies since season 6 (and strong female characters in general) however? Now I think [i]that[/i] could be the sign of something.

    Oh, and Dean did indeed tell Hank about the clone situation in the season 5 finale. And Elana was wondering where Rose & Co were living in an earlier episode : Colonel Gentleman says in the same finale that his brownstone is on Christopher Street.
