    Snart double crossed Barry, no surprise there. Barry's faith in human kindness was used against him. Now the Rogues are on the loose and Snart is planning to recruit them since they owe him a big favor. I have got to once again give the writers points for making Snart so devious.

I absolutely love the dynamic they are building between Cold and Flash, a sort of "Loyal Opposition". Nothing defined it better than when they laid down the framework for their relationship in which "family was off limits".

    Joe realizes more then ever that in terms of the law they are all in it deep for the containing of the metas. However with them all free now, the situation is somewhat moot, and Cisco and Caitlyn could easily wipe out evidence that they were locked up at Star Labs.

I'm glad they finally addressed the unethical and, unsanctioned solitary confinement they were operating without due process of the law. It really cast Flash in an unpardonablly bad light. Best that that aspect of the show has been cast aside.

Well the containment cells may be tossed aside for now but there could still be repercussions if the Rogues start blabbing about them to the media and the cops.

Also while there was indeed a violation of ethics, the only other option was to kill the metahumans and only Wells would have supported that given he is the Reverse Flash.

So they had the options of

1. illegal incarceration in the only place that COULD hold them

2. kill them

3. turn them loose again.

A possible 4th option would have been suspended animation, but that tech doesn't seem to exist, unless Wells suddenly developed it but that would likely have tipped his hand about being from the future as such tech would be rather advanced.

They could have kept them drugged with sedatives but that would be unreliable and dangerous.
