Hrm.  I forget what I was planning here.  The implication is that Bart O’Ryan let them go and didn’t press charges on Joyce.  (Assuming that he was the only one who would bother to prosecute.)  I guess he was satisfied with shutting down SEMME and ruining its reputation?  I mean, I guess that’s fine.  Maybe I thought that narratively confirmed that he was being petty, and thus a villain, but, like, Joyce doesn’t have to go to jail now, she’s just out of a job, so that seems pretty benevolent-towards-our-heroes to me.
