Shortly after he was hired, Derek ran into Phoebe Halliwell. They talked for a moment, but were soon interrupted by Elise Rothman, who handed Derek his first story. Derek began investigating a few mysterious murders and crossed paths with Darryl Morris. He started following Darryl and arrived at the hospital when the Charmed Ones confronted Mara. After the sisters depowered her, they left and Derek went to get his story. Elise later congratulated him on the Black Widow story.
