The outbound and return flights share the same flight number. Seems like this may be confusing Flightradar24 at times.

I think you're right. I've noticed Flightradar has recently been showing several flights to GEG as diverted with most of them show as diverted to small airports like SFF. I checked today and it looks like most of the recent "diversions" had the same flight number round trip.
