Impromptu one on ones presented themselves for the most unlikely, and by Sunday afternoon progress was made, and trusts were re-enforced. Derek drove Esther home with the girls, followed by Rossi and Reid in his SUV, Hotch and Jack led the way back to Quantico.

The weekend had recharged them all, and they were ready to face whatever horrors their job may have in stored for them in the coming months.

For now, it was enough.
