Season One

Season 2Edit

In the first episode, Irving is not shown. It can be assumed that he is in prison from his confession to the murders caused by Ancitif. In episode two, The Kindred, Irving is shown in prison and Tarrytown Psychiatric. In the mental hospital, Irving had an encounter with Henry Parrish, which does not bode well for his future. In Mama he almost committed suicide when Nurse Lambert gave him a pill to make him more maliable to her suggestions. She then told him that he was to drown himself. He was saved by Abbie, Jenny, and Nick Hawley . At the end of the episode he escaped and Abbie Mills was driving with Ichabod Crane, Jenny Mills and Nick Hawley. Frank Irving hid in back of Abbie's jeep.


Irving was initially no-nonsense and skeptical about Crane and Abbie's claims, but quickly became their ally once he saw for himself that they were speaking the truth. As a father, he loves his daughter a immense deal and would do anything to protect her.



  • Irving's name is an allusion to Washington Irving, the author of "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"


"Not to mention a confession from Brooks, who says he'll plea-bargain, but only if he talks to you and Captain America here." - Irving talking to Abbie Mills and Ichabod Crane about Andy.
