|“||See, Ellie? We are a team. You just decided to let that man live. See, the question isn't why do I kill people. The question is why I don't kill everybody. I decide who dies, but mostly, I decide who lives. I'm like... God. And now you are too.||„|

Early Life and First Murders
Flynn had a deeply traumatic childhood; his mother Nora was a drug-addicted prostitute who made him watch while she serviced her clients, and frequently prostituted him for extra money. When he was 13, Flynn killed Nora and one of her johns, for which he was imprisoned until he was 18. After he was released from prison, he began attacking families, raping and murdering the women while leaving the children alive but scarred. Two of these survivors were Matt Spicer and his sister Kristen.
Twenty-six years after murdering their parents, Flynn reads a newspaper article about Matt, now a police detective, and learns that Matt has a daughter, Ellie. Flynn decides that he would destroy Matt's life once again by "murdering" Ellie.
Second Murder Spree and Death
Flynn goes on a killing spree similar to his previous murders to get Matt's attention, but instead attracts the Behavioral Analysis Unit. Billy kidnaps Ellie and Kristen during a blackout, taking them to Matt's old house and killing the current resident in the process. Flynn then kills both Matt and Kristen, and kidnaps Ellie, forcing her to act his accomplice. The team discovers that Flynn is not obsessed with Matt, but with Ellie; he is intent on turning her into his partner in crime.
When Flynn invades another home and kills the father, Ellie saves the man's children by telling them to run and get their neighbors. Flynn escapes with Ellie, and seems genuinely hurt that she has turned on him. One of the BAU team, Jennifer Jareau, calls him and empathizes with him in order to persuade him to let Ellie go. When she tells him that he didn't deserve what his mother did to him, Flynn realizes that he is hurting Ellie the same way his mother hurt him. He releases her and breaks into a couple's home, taking them hostage. He asks for Agent Derek Morgan to come to arrest him alone. After an emotional conversation with Morgan, he commits suicide-by-cop by raising his weapon, forcing Morgan to shoot him dead.
