Spencer sat at the conference table going over their latest case, trying to create a geographical profile, when an agent stuck his head in.

"Could you tell Agent Jareau she has a phone call on line 3," he said before disappearing.

Spencer picked up the phone and pressed the button for line 3, JJ was at a press conference.

"You were calling for Agent Jareau? Yes, she's at a press conference, can I take a message?"

He placed the phone on the base and stood up, heading out the door, to the conference room on the first floor. He was waiting in the back of the room when JJ finished, waiting until she was off stage to approach her.


JJ smiled as she saw Spencer approaching, he gave her a weak smile back, his forehead creased in worry.

"Spence, what's wrong?"

He took her hand and led her to a couple chairs in the back of the room.

"You got a phone call just a couple minutes ago, Will was in a car accident, he's in the hospital."

"Is he okay?" she asked voice rising in concern.

"I don't know, they wouldn't tell me anything."

"I, I've got to go. Can you drive me?" she asked, rising to her feet unsteadily.

"Of course," Spencer replied, reaching out to steady her.


As soon as they got to the hospital, Spencer called Hotch to let him know what was going on while JJ checked on Will. Hotch's voicemail picked up and he left a message containing what information he knew, he wasn't sure the full extent of Will's condition yet. Hotch called back telling him to keep them updated, and for him to stay with her, something Spencer was glad of, with them working a case he hadn't been sure.

It was almost an hour before JJ came out into the waiting room, her face tear streaked, she sat down in the chair next to his.

"They're taking him back into surgery, he suffered a lot of internal bleeding and injuries, his chances aren't good, they're…" her voice faded off.

"He'll be fine," Spencer tried to reassure her, "He's strong, he'll fight this, he's got too much to live for not to." Spencer said squeezing her hand reassuringly.

JJ hated leaving the hospital, Haley's sister had offered to watch Henry as much as JJ needed, but JJ knew in all the confusion Henry needed at least one parent home as much as possible. She also felt like she was imposing on Haley's sister who was watching Jack as well while Hotch worked, something she'd been doing ever since Haley's death. Spencer realized that JJ needed to be near her son, probably more than anyone realized, as well. Of the team members that had made relationships work, it seemed they were doomed, Haley was dead and Will, no one was sure if he would make it or not.
