To me it seems that retracting the flaps caused the first huge nose down trim. It could be they didn't recognise it was a trim problem (as MCAS is undocumented) and thought something's wrong with the configuration hence they redeployed the flaps. Trim is relatively stable during the 2nd flaps extension compared to the final stage of the flight, so it seems that worked. If they kept this configuration and landed, they would be ok :-(

I believe Boing is going to be facing the grand jury for this. And they should prepare themselves for a massive, in billions, payout to the families. Rightly so!
