Espo’s finest hour. I’d love to see them delve back into his story a little bit more, focused around his time in the military, and his transition to the NYPD afterwards. Seems like a rich part of his history to explore.
Do we have an idea of how long he was in the Army before joining the NYPD? I assume he enlisted right out of high school and went to college later.
He did two tours and was in Special Forces. I peg him as at the same age as Castle, and have him headcanoned as serving around decade in the military, getting out as a senior NCO (definitely don’t see him having a commission) and then joining the NYPD after going to university on the GI bill. Remember he graduated from the fictional Hudson University. So military for 10 years after high school = 28 + 3/4 years of university = 32 + 6-7 years as a beat cop and then Robbery as well as Gangs Task Force = late 30s-40 as of the start of the series.
