CM_SetReport Chat w/writer Kimberly Harrison - 3/1/12
Kimberly Harrison: Hello everyone!
Laurenreynoldsisdead: Why didn't you decide to show the ladies night or Reid babysitting Henry? Great episode by the way!
KH: Thank you... I wanted to show Reid being responsible. It was cool to switch it up! I would have loved to see ladies night but we just didn't have the time.
dineen1967: What inspired you to write an episode where the family is helping the son kill those women and the mother covering up for those crimes?
KH: As crazy as it sounds I thought about what I'd do for my children and because of CM... it got twisted! lol
Ironictheorist: Can you give us an introduction to what the season ending would be like?
KH: Hit & Run
Geewiz: Are you writing another episode and who will be the focus?
KH: Not this season.
EmPress: I've always wondered: Who's richer, trust-fund baby Prentiss or author Rossi? She never flaunts her money background so it is hard to tell.
KH: I'd say Rossi.... "Snake Eyes" Prentiss wasn't rushing to volunteer money for the buy-in.
Laurenreynoldsisdead: Thank you for showing us Hotch in tight clothing. Much appreciated by everyone.
KH: It was FREEZING that day. Thomas was amazing!
Oliviabondoc: Is it more or equally difficult writing an episode with multiple unsubs instead of just one?
KH: I must admit it was challenging but we get paid per UnSub. LOL
LLALALALA: what was your favourite line of last night's episode?
KH: The "Mr. Belvedere" line.
Soundofmescreaming: Why are the unsubs getting so much screen time?
KH: Each episode is different. We just try to tell them in different ways.
Laurenreynoldsisdead: Where was Henry the morning of the race? I think everyone is wondering about that.
KH: Will had gotten home early that morning.
NittyMcNitpicker: Since we've seen Hotch in tights and Morgan half naked, are we going to get to see JJ in a bikini? It's only fair.
KH: We're saving that for the "Hawaii" episode lol
love_sil: Any hints about how Emily is going to leave?
KH: We're still working on that. Stay tuned! Come on GublerLover44... show some love.
Salsadancingjemily: who are you closest with on the CM set ? (writers and actors)
KH: I think you already know the answer to that.... Rick Dunkle
Swon: Do you personally watch CM when it airs? Or are you guys all CM'd out by the time it comes on each week
KH: I watch EVERY Wednesday.
Green_Fairy: G'DAY from AUSTRALIA! Great episode. Are we going to see any villain arcs, like Foyet & Doyle by the end of this season? AND any chance Prentiss' wardrobe could go on auction after PB leaves at the end of the season? :P
KH: First off, I have dibs on her turtlenecks. LOL Stay tuned for Ep #720.
NittyMcNitpicker: So, was it Will who got home and took Henry from Reid's exhausted arms?
KH: Wil had just finished his double duty when he walked through the door to find Reid and Henry sleep on the couch. Then JJ came home...
NittyMcNitpicker: After seeing the episode air and perhaps getting some feedback, is there anything about last night's episode that you would change if you had it to do over again?
KH: I would have DEMANDED ladies night! : )
wheelsup4demily: I ship Kim & Rick :)
KH: Please SHIP us to Hawaii!
Elle: if you could have one of the jobs on the crew, which would you want?
KH: Hmm good question. I'd like to work in camera department. Those guys get to be there for every moment that we film. That's pretty cool.
JJHotchner: Did Hotch end up introducing Beth to everyone? Or did he forget they were there? lol
KH: They all went to breakfast after the race.
Soundofmescreaming: Was Morgan with Reid when he was babysitting?
KH: No. It was just Reid and Henry.
Makehimstop: Which upcoming episode are you most excited about?
KH: Hit AND Run. aka SEASON 7 FINALE
sam-maddy: Who is your dream guest star?
KH: Lea Michele
NittyMcNitpicker: Were you not allowed to kill the "Erica" character because of her name? :P Were there any versions of the story in which Erica died?
KH: There was a version where Jeffrey turned on Erika and actually stabbed her but we were there in time to save her.
Makehimstop: Who is your all time favorite unsub?
KH: I'm going to have to go with Jack Coleman. He was totally creepy!
D: Can you give us one spoiler about what's going to happen in one of the episodes still left to air?
KH: In one of the episodes we're going to see some folks we haven't seen in a while.
Jasper: Which character voice do you find the easiest to get right? And the most challenging?
KH: I'd say that Prentiss is one of the easier ones to write. One of the most challenging ... hmmm..... Reid.
Jasper: What show would you like to see CM do a crossover ep with?
Herpderp: If you could write any episode, no resrictions, what would happen, and how would it be different from your other episodes?
KH: It would be Criminal Minds "AFTER DARK"
ChocolateDivine: There's a off-camera story to why Reid got to the crime scene with the "I just got laid" hair right?
KH: That was due to the dense humidity in Atlanta.
imperfect1989: we've already been giving that spoiler about charactors coming back....! any other spoilers.
KH: We'll learn some new BAU history.
JJHotchner: Any nice Hotch/JJ moments coming up? And, yes, I will not stop asking this until I get answered :)
KH: Yes... stay tuned!
Makehimstop: Who do you think would win in a fight: Doyle or Foyet?
KH: Doyle for sure!
GublerLover44: at the end of season 7, can we see a full cast interview about their thoughts on the season and whatnot?
KH: I hope so! Season 7 DVD
sam-maddy: Would you ever write Criminal Minds - the Musical?
KH: Ummm, yeah! With Lea Michele as the UnSub. Thought? LOL
Sergiocushion: Who do you think is the best at Salsa dancing, Emily, JJ or Garcia?
KH: Garcia! I think she might have been taking lessons for a while and wanted to bring JJ and Prentiss along.
NittyMcNitpicker: Was Henry impressed with any of Reid's magic tricks or did Reid have to resort to making silly faces (or just reading to him)?
KH: He read Henry his favorite bedtime story... The US Bureau of Labor Statistics book.
SmileyGidget: If you could write an episode in any setting... real, space, future, past... where would it be?
KH: I'd love to write an episode that takes place 20 years in the future. I wonder what our team would look like....
PopcornBalls: Thank you for your time - we really appreciate your stopping by to chat! Is there anything that no one has asked that you'd like to tell us?
KH: Nobody has asked me how I feel about Snooki being pregnant... j/k Honestly, I'd really like to thank you guys for watching this year. We've got some great stuff coming up. I look forward to many many more questions next season. Catch ya in season 8. In the meantime, feel free to holla at me. I'm on twitter twitches!!!! @ikimharrison
