Whenever they have a flashlight in the scene, they have the actors shine it into the lens and what you see is a great net artifact which brings a nice style to the show.
I'm not sure which shots you've seen, but I've noticed that many of the "flashlight" shots use what appears to be a "streak" filter, which when properly oriented in the matte box can give a single straight-line streak of light, not unlike the horizontal flare you get with anamorphic lenses (sort of a poor-man's anamorphic flare).
Nets on the other hand tend to give more of a star pattern to specular highlights. No doubt the DP's change filtration according to the shot.
Definitely some of the most stylish cinematography on TV at the moment.
