Quote:Yeah his defense could have been better by far.
In this episode as they were in the tunnels some of the metas even commented how a CSI guy killed someone in his own home and left evidence everywhere including on himself.
This was something I said they should have pushed hard at the trial. He's a trained CSI if anybody could plan to kill somebody else and get away with it, a CSI would have a very very good idea how to do it.
Also nobody thought to say that Barry should be looked over by the court doctor for evidence of injuries sustained when Devoe clawed at him? ah well, this story is done and dusted.
Quote:However, even though Barry is out now the fact is that he did spend time in jail and even though the judge has exonerated Barry, cleared him of all charges and set him free, the media did a good job of poisoning the public against him, and his fellow cops also seemed to shy away except for Joe and the Captain.
Now Barry by all rights should be facing some serious P.R./karma problems with his fellow cops and the public in general. While he shouldn't experience OJ Simpson or Casey Anthony levels of hatred I would think that Barry should experience some type of trouble.
Will the police reinstate him? Well the courts did clear him, but surely the cops will have many questions for the fake Devoe and if he doesn't turn up to help the investigation it could look bad for Barry.
The police will likely want to talk to Barry about how Devoe could still be alive.
I strongly suspect, the writers will probably shelve the story of Barry going to prison there and leave it. Which, I think, might be the best idea all round the whole angle was very badly executed. I think he'll probably have to cope with digs from the other cops about himself, and probably his father. There may be some questioning Barry will have to explain to the captain, but the writers will probably... probably... just leave this whole angle there now.
Quote:Also will Devoe's grave be exhumed for investigation or did perhaps Dibney secretly do some "dirty work" as it were and already took care of that? Dibney has done some dirty things such as planting evidence and since Devoe isn't really dead would it really be desecrating a grave?
Or Killer Frost could have dealt with the grave and disposed of the body.
I sincerely hope this stuff was done beforehand, off camera. Guy you think is dead just rolls into the courthouse alive and well first thing you're going to do is dig up his grave. That's just common sense.
Quote:Frankly I think that even though he and Iris are still newlyweds they should give some thought to relocating to the edge of the city, or perhaps even taking some of the lower levels of Star Labs and making them into a new home.
Also Barry, Wells2 and Cisco and Caitlyn really need to sweep the place for bugs, cameras and revamp their security systems...AGAIN.
Perhaps Wells2 could install some Earth 2 tech into the place? Perhaps that will throw people off?
I think they need to get out of the open, not really because of the public but because of Devoe, he's turning himself into some super-meta and he seems less... omnipotent now.
I really hope that the final conflict between Barry and Devoe is basically like where Spider-Man cornered the Green Goblin and nearly beat him to death. I would love to see Barry just snap on his villain and unload on him stopping short of killing him. I think Devoe deserves it.
