What Gibson Thinks About His Exit
However, it is not exactly known how the writers will eliminate Hotch from the show. Gibson earlier talked of how people will only remember “good work”. He also said that the unceremonious exit had hurt his “pride and reputation”.
Gibson was the main character on the show and his absence has led to plunging ratings overall. Several fans have even come up with several hashtags including #NoHotchNoWatch hashtag. Many fans are also boycotting the show, leading to its poor TRPs.
Since fans want Gibson back very badly, he may return as per other sources. They talk about a possible return on the fifth episode of Season 12. This return is expected to boost the ratings of the show hugely.
Carter Matt has also reported that Virgil Williams is the person allegedly kicked by Gibson. William has confirmed all the allegations against Gibson. Williams talked of how Gibson wanted a change in the storyline and didn’t accept his “fix”.
