5. Speak with Father in the ruins of CIT

I need to return to the Institute and tell Shaun what happened in Bunker Hill.

Father is waiting for you on the roof of the C.I.T. Ruins.

It doesn't matter if you freed the synths or sent them back, just during the conversation with Father tell him that you still want to be a part of The Institute and then you will receive next quest - Mankind-Redefined.

If you freed/killed the synths and told Father that you no longer want to be a member of The Institute then he will leave you and you won't be able to fast travel to The Institute anymore.
