Character InformationEdit

For the most part of season 1, Flynn worked for the Robbery-Homicide Division but was "loaned" by Taylor to Priority Homicide. In Fatal Retraction, when one of Flynn's old cases was reinvestigated and Taylor was prepared to throw Flynn under the bus for misidentifying the victim, he requested a permanent transfer to Brenda's unit. His closest friend is Provenza and he has a "not dating" relationship with Captain Sharon Raydor who helped him start to repair his relationship with his estranged daughter. In Snitch, Flynn finally asked Raydor out on a real date and the two eventually made their relationship official with Assistant Chief Taylor, though they tell him they are doing it "old fashioned."

In episode Turn Down, he and Provenza were on a drive-along with Buzz Watson on his first day as a Reserve Officer. Neither were happy that they missed being at the Fourth of July Dodgers game as a result which was described as "the game of the century" though everyone saw it on TV in Sharon's condo.


  • Flynn is a sober alcoholic and has been sober for over 10 years.
  • Flynn is divorced.
  • Flynn's sister had cancer
  • Flynn's daughter, Nicole, recently got married. Both her father and step-father, whom Flynn can't stand, walked her down the aisle. Flynn nearly didn't go, but Sharon Raydor convinced him to.
  • Flynn took Sharon to his daughter's wedding. Then, he asked her to go with him to dinner and The Nutcracker. This causes Nicole to think they are dating and they insist they are not. However, as Rusty Beck points out, they are "not dating" several times a month now. He and Nicole clearly don't believe their assertions and when explaining how they are supposedly not dating, they seem stunned by the revelation of how much time they spend together in date-like environments. Flynn spends "Snitch" trying to get up the courage to ask Sharon on a real date which he does in the end. She accepts his offer. In Hostage to Fortune, Flynn and Raydor officially announce their relationship to Assistant Chief Taylor who lets them continue with no problems to their careers or working together. They also inform him their dating relationship is the "old fashioned" kind with Flynn commenting that its so old fashioned he's surprised they don't have a chaperone.

  • When in uniform, Flynn wears six service stripes on his uniform. Each stripe represents five years of service in the LAPD meaning he has served for 30-35 years.
