"Double Jeopardy" is the twenty-ninth televised episode of the series Gargoyles, and the sixteenth episode of Season 2.

The concept of Thailog was initially inspired by Greg Weisman's hearing Goliath's name spoken backwards while rewinding the voice acting tapes during the making of the first season. (It helped, also, that Greg was favorably impressed with Keith David's voice acting talent, and wanted to give him the opportunity to stretch that by playing a thoroughly villainous character as well as the noble Goliath.)
Owen makes a fresh mention of the Emir to Xanatos (the first mention being in The Edge); by this time, Greg was thinking of turning the Emir into an on-stage character, which would be achieved in Grief.
Xanatos includes Demona, Macbeth, and Renard on his list of suspects behind Thailog's "kidnapping", even listing Renard twice (the second time comes when Owen reports that the oil rig named as the rendezvous for the ransom money is secretly owned by a large corporation, and Xanatos immediately asks, "Cyberbiotics?"). While one finds it highly unlikely that Renard actually would be engaged in such an action (though there is Golem to consider), presumably Xanatos doesn't give much thought to the fact that a person's sense of integrity would be enough to withstand the temptation to abduct anything as valuable as a cloned gargoyle.
The dates given in Sevarius' video documentary about the cloning and education of Thailog are all dates of personal significance to Greg Weisman (the birthdays of himself and various family members, his wedding anniversary, etc.).
