The building used in the prison scene is one that is wholly inadequate for its purpose. Chief Cooper refers to the inmates as "...serial killers, hit men and the worst scum on earth...", yet there are corridors with large windows with unreinforced glass; interior scenes show as many as six occupants per cell and mixed male and female populations in the same cell block. Furthermore, Pike is able to shoot out the lock on an access tunnel with one shot. None of these conditions would be considered adequate for a prison holding the kinds of criminals the chief described. See more
Pretty frightening, how you and your friends were caught last night. What was it again, a demon? The guys around the station think you're all on drugs, you know, or crazy. But I know better. I know you really did see a demon. He was red as blood, wasn't he? And fast, like a flash. So if you care about Pike, you'll tell us where he is, because, Lila, if we don't find him, The Flash will.
