In the "Pilot", fake psychic detective Shawn Spencer is able to deduce that Detective Barry and Detective Lassiter are having an affair, from the way he touches her hair. Lucinda is more lenient with Shawn than Lassiter, taking him to the department shooting range, where he shows her that he is a crack shot. At the end of the episode, she is transferred due to the fact that there would be a common perception she was climbing the ranks not because of hard work, but because Lassiter was romantically involved with her. Although this was, in reality, probably a simple matter of when particular scripts were written, within the timeline of the series it seems Lassiter lied to her about how long he and his wife had been apart. In From the Earth to the Starbucks Lassiter sets the record straight with Shawn, that it's been fifteen months longer than anyone else knows, whereas in the Pilot she points out that he's barely separated, to which Lassiter replies, "It's been five months.".

In the international Pilot, she has much more screen time, sharing a couple of scenes with Shawn, in which she appears very capable, and not dependent on 'sleeping her way to the top'.
