Early life

As a child Reade was a camper at Mulmur Hills Football Camp where he befriend Coach Jones who later turned out to be rapist. Later he attended the University of Michigan. Where he still holds a receiving record in football.

It was implied that Reade might have been the first agent working alongside Weller and Patterson as part of the CIRG division led by Bethany Mayfair.

Season 1

Jane Doe Case

While on an ongoing investigation in Rural Kentucky, Weller was called back to NY for an urgent matter regarding a critical incident with a newly found amnesiac woman left in Times Square with his name tattooed on her back. Reade and Zapata were ordered to cross reference every similar MO with all the convicted suspects arrested by Kurt. On their first tattoo related case, he helped Weller to prevent the death of dozens of civilians inside of a subway car.

Reade reacted skeptically around Jane, often openly admitting to Zapata how mysterious the circumstances around her case were, suspecting that Jane could have been part of some conspiracy. They got off on the wrong start, seeing her as a liability, mostly due to Weller's lack of objectivity around Jane.

Eventually, Reade accepted Jane as part of the team after she demonstrated loyalty to the group and commitment to the cases. However, an on going investigation led by Jonas Fischer where he accused Jane of being a Russian spy and Thomas Carter's murderer, made Reade and Mayfair grow increasingly suspicious of Jane's alibi the night Carter's disappearance.
