Unclear if it is technology based or meta based. It is likely he stole the tech.
many funny scenes of Cisco and Ralph after they are shrunk down. Especially when Ralph was accidentally stepped on.

Wells2 and Team Flash conclude that there are no coincidences where Devoe is concerned such as Barry having and innocent man as a cell mate, the metas from the bus, even Ralph and Barry getting shrunk could all be part of Devoe's plans.
A better episode of the season.
Still no major hints about Devoe's plans that I can see.
I found this to be a really good episode and I liked it, despite the silly bits and I realised today why I liked it so much.
A complete and utter lack of Devoe, save one small mention here and there, made what is in effect a filler episode, composed mostly to just pad out the series, was very enjoyable.
I bet Oliver Queen could have got a confession out of tall, bald and shrinky...
