Thomas Gibson on Hotch in a Possible Season 7 SPOILER!
LOOOOVED your chat with Thomas Gibson. Any more Hotch dish? — Lee
How about some Hotch scoop…for season 7! Well, if there is a season 7 (please, please, please, please, please, and duh). Thomas Gibson hopes the audience gets a chance to see the deeper effects of this season’s uber-impactful storylines (like the “death” of his colleague Emily Prentiss). “I think he’s had his share of challenges and tragedy and it would be nice to see him [cope]. I think he’s going through the process of dealing with some of that, and I don’t know if we’ve seen that happen,” he tells me. “We’ve never really seen him deal with what’s happened in his life in the past couple years. I think exploring that would be interesting and I think we may end up seeing some of that.” But how does Gibson envision a derailed Hotch? “There are so many ways for that to manifest itself. He doesn’t, I think, have a whole lot of indulgence of his own for any of the weight that he carries. To a certain extent, that’s one of his flaws. He would rather ignore it, and of course, you can’t ignore it forever.”
