Takes place after Ep 6-19: With Friends Like These
Hotch looked up as Rossi walked into his office. "Dave?"
"I may have a solution to our problem of needing an experienced profiler."
"You have my attention," Hotch admitted, waving Dave to a seat.
"For one of my books I looked into a killer named Nicole Wallace. She was dealing with a NYPD Detective named Robert Goren. He was good. His profile was better than most I've seen. Dead on. And she isn't the only one. I did some checking, and he is known for his profiling ability, and interrogations. I haven't mentioned him before, because he was with NYPD. I just found out he's not NYPD anymore. He was also in the Army. Given that background…"
"Army and NYPD… Shouldn't be a problem getting the Academy requirement waived," Hotch finished the thought. "I'll look into it. Thank you. Do you know why he isn't with the NYPD anymore?"
"His Captain was killed. Goren used…. unorthodox methods to get the killers, and this isn't the first time. Nothing worse than each of us have pulled at one time or another," Dave said with a wry smile.
2 WEEKS LATER
The Team had gathered in the Conference Room, including the newest member – Robert Goren. "Sorry we don't have time to let you settle in Goren, but we just got a case," Hotchner began.
"No problem. Means I'm still packed and ready to leave," Goren replied.
"Everyone, I'd like you to meet our new profiler – Robert Goren. He comes to us from NYPD. Goren, I believe you've talked to SSA Rossi. SSA Derek Morgan. SSA Ashley Seaver. Doctor Spencer Reid. Penelope Garcia," Hotch introduced. Each person raised their hand or nodded as their name was said.
"Hello," Goren greeted, then the briefing began in earnest.
A/N: So, should this continue? I'm thinking a series of one-shots, rather than following one case all the way through…
