Maynard Gilbough is a Louisiana State Police detective and one of the main characters of the series in season 1.


Maynard Gilbough often seems to appear more cynical and blunt than his partner Thomas Papania.

Martin Hart: You know I've seen all the different types. We all fit a certain category. The bully... The charmer... The... uh... surrogate dad... the man possessed by ungovernable rage... the brain... and any of those types can be a good detective and any of those types can be an incompetent shitheel.

Maynard Gilbough: Which type were you? 

Martin Hart: Oh, just a regular type dude... with a big ass dick
