In such one case, Tommy Flanagan was taken to the hospital due to dehydration. The cast even had designated umbrella holders.

The Parents TV council were not happy with an episode

In the tenth episode of its seventh season, titled Faith and Despondency, the episode opened up with two and a half minutes of explicit content.

Rattled by the montage, PTC deemed it inappropriate and called it the most explicit content it had ever documented on basic cable.

Tommy Flanagan's scars are real

Tommy’s Chib Telford is a hell of a tough guy in the show, and his scar looks like he survived a war or a bar fight.

He was indeed attacked by a group of thugs as he was leaving the nightclub where he worked as a DJ.

Tommy, being a tough guy fought back, but the attackers slashed his face from ear to ear and left him for dead.

Well, Tommy pulled through and decided to pursue a career in acting. The scar did justice to his role on the show, though it's unfortunate he experienced such traumatic ordeal.
