HAHAHA, kate38. To me neither are plot armor! Dean effing Winchester SHOULD be able to pick handcuffs with an antenna! And he IS charm personified so, of course, it’s no suprise that he could talk a heterosexual lady cop out of arresting him! HAHAHA. I do think that having something in common with her helped a lot, too.
I would argue to the opposite that if he was protected by plot he wouldn’t have chosen a cop persona at all this time, but maybe shown up as reporter or simply a concerned relative.
But be that as it may….I totally see your point. 🙂
