Reed Garrett is the son of Claire Conrad Taylor, Mac's late wife.

Early Life

Claire had given birth to Reed when she was very young, and had put him up for adoption long before she met Mac. At first, Reed had mistakenly believed that Stella Bonasera was Claire, having observed the close friendship between Mac and Stella. After he learned the truth, Reed was reluctant to connect with Mac, because Mac was not his biological father, though Mac has since become a de facto stepfather for him.

Season Three

Mac visited Reed at his home for Thanksgiving, and gave him photos of Claire. (Sweet Sixteen)

Later Reed and Mac bonded further, when Reed's friend at college was murdered and Reed himself assaulted. (Some Buried Bones) Reed also learned that the body of his mother has, to date, never been recovered from the World Trade Center site.

Season Four

Reed is shown to have become interested in journalism, putting him at odds with Mac while trying to follow a case where a serial killer goes on the loose killing victims in a taxicab. He unknowingly entered the killer's cab, but the driver doesn't kill him and instead gives him information on the "cabbie killer" to post on his blog. (Personal Foul)

Reed reported on his blog confidential information regarding the cabbie killer case, provided by a secret source who turned out to be the serial killer himself. (Taxi) He inadvertently caused the murder of an innocent New Jersey cop who was moonlighting as a cabbie.

After the Cabbie Killer realized the reach of Reed's blog, he kidnapped Reed to help him get his 'message' out to the public. When Mac discovered Reed's location, cops were sent immediately.

Later, Mac left the hospital with Reed; Mac called for a taxi.
