Who makes that white, wrap sweater you wore in the last scene of the last episode(208)? @jessdenoncourt according to wardrobe, that sweater was made by theory.
how does your hair designer do Maura's hair? @isles_rizzoli_ just blows it out and uses a curling iron! :)
Live Tweeting for episode 208 East Coast!
How many times does @SashaAlexander1 have to be taken hostage in her acting career @LASB12 an endless number!
The dress your wearing looks amazing. Is it designer or the fab wardrobe dept? @TrekOnLTS the blue with white stitching was Tory Burch.
what was ur favorite part to shoot in this eppisode? @Sugarlandfan10 the scenes where I am being secretive from Jane.
"Have you been investigating me?" Maura's mad!!!
OMG!!!! You are a brave woman. Real rats, oh hell no. Girl... How did you do that? @talltvw I whined the whole time! :)
Guy playing Ian is awfully adorable. Must've been a tough shoot! @21TVcast I used to be on Presidio Med with his wife, a wonderful actress named Jullianne Nicholson.
I don't like the emotional distance between Jane and Maura in this episode. :( @angel3609 but that's human nature, that's a real relationship.
any other talents you want to share? Heard you're a figure skater? @Ayid08 yes, I was a competitive skater.
will u miss all the amazing people that work with u after u done shooting? @Random_Gal1 of course!
ewwww are those real rats? @daniellacalzona I was really grossed out shooting that scene but after awhile, they became kind of cute.
When you have an emotional scene what do you think about or where do you go subconsciously? @BrandiMortati it depends on the scene and how it makes me feel.
Do u like watching yourself? Or, do you always think you could have done better? @KatFalcone I like watching the result of our work, and the whole story.
How long have Jane and Maura been friends at this point in the show? @JLBMOctober 3-4 years.

any vices? @SheetalArmy if I don't get frequent manicures, I bite my nails.
are you really a sketch artist or can you draw at all like Kate? :) @BrandiMortati I draw well, but not that well.

are you good at math!? @xokrisxo33 no, sorry.
Are all of your heels organized like Mauras? @BrandiMortati yes. :)

.@Lorraine_Bracco is glowing tonight! Did she get a sexy visitor as well??
@SashaAlexander1 I didn't get that script!
ok I have to ask, did u guys get that 'how come u never tell me when you're coming' line in 1 take w/o losing it? @3doorsfan now you're being naughty!
Who is the actor that plays Ian?? @BethM2S Jonathon Cake, fantastic actor!
Maura's beau is Hot :-) @suevic26 he is very nice on the eyes!
how was it like filming these kissing scenes? @BonesTvFanatic it can be uncomfortable because you have to do it with a hundred people watching!

do you find it funny that people want Rizzoli and Isles to be a couple? @i_is_tlee kind of but mostly flattered by it.
maura's dating a bit this season and that's cool:) but if she crushes on bill o'reilly my life as i know it will be over. @littlevoice4 wouldn't be too worried about that one.

LOVE and adore him! RT @NCISZiverCote: Wht was it like working with Michael Weatherly???????”
How long does it typically take to receive an autograph request from you? @mlspikie right now I'm about 6 months behind but will be catching up once we finish this season. :)
you're quite adept at handling "sensitive" tweets, when I'm sure most celebs would ignore them. Mad props. @KAMFitness thank you! ;)
who would YOU tweet? that you're a big fan of? @26Trumpets @nickiraegeous, ha ha! :)
I have AB, but I usually use it for emails, photos & the web. RT @shy_cube: what apps do you have on your iPad? do you have angry birds?

We are already shooting it, it is ep 11-15. RT @RileySpencer: when do u start filming the fall/winter season?

Sasha!! U dont answer me anymore. :'( @XxDamagedSoulxX I try to pick and choose, nothing personal... sorry.
do you have any tattoos? @i_is_tlee nope.
Would you wanna be on broadway? If yes, a musical? @MaraIsles i'd LOVE to be on broadway! I'd have to dance more than sing though, I'm not much of a singer.
What is your favorite song of the 80 & 90??? @Sasha_Forever way too many songs to choose from in that time period that were amazing, can't just chose one!
do you shop online while at work, like Maura do? @AngiesLLBFF Yes, way more than I should! :)

Do you like any sport?? Like tennis?!? @jessila13 I just had to play tennis for a scene on friday! My favorites are basketball and soccer.
I was watching Rizzoli & Isles and wondering: how Sasha can memorize your lines? @isadorabenigno I wonder the same thing with every script that is delivered! ;)

Thanks for all the anniversary tweets, you guys are the sweetest!
I'm very behind on my mail right now, but working on it. Been so busy lately! Sorry!

(Episode 205) how come you can't use real MLB team names? @an_dre_a12 it's a legal thing, we need permission and you have to pay LOTS of money to use them.
Nope, Los Angeles. RT @cathr13: Do you film in Boston?
Do you still get starstruck when meeting fellow actors or legends? @DreamWriterDKS of course I do!
What was it like working with Michael Weatherly on NCIS, and James Van Der Beek on Dawson's Creek? @teamcullen4 LOVE and adore them both!
@SashaAlexander1 and @nickiraegeous should have their own reality show. I can totally see high ratings! @Crazyshushu that's actually not a bad idea!
Live tweeting during episode 205
Thank you all for watching tonight! Always fun to hang with you! Xxx
How was working with Jaqueline Bissett? @HannahSky she's lovely and smart and stunning.
This is not CSI: Boston @CourtneyCawston @Angie_Harmon I loved angies face in that scene. Made me laugh..

Hey guys! The Coming & Going soundtrack is officially out on iTunes! Go get it, show us some love!
Being called weird is like being called Limited Edition. Meaning you're something people don't see that often. Remember that. @ithinkthatway love this. Thank you.
Starting EP 12 today! RT @AngieHarmonFan: What epi are you shooting this week?
Yes they are!!! I highly recommend! RT @iAshleyJill: Are the Rizzoli & Isles books worth reading? I'm looking for a new book series!
When acting are actors fully aware of what they are doing 100% or is there things which happened without meaning to? :) @RentheadGleek depends, sometimes...
(About episode 204) Of course, it's a tough thing to think of for any mother. RT @sho2416: Was it a hard episode to shoot since you have kids?
During Episode 204
So happy you all responded to tonights episode. It was intense for all of us to shoot due to the subject matter. But I'm proud of it.
Was it really hard to shoot ep. 4? @BrandiMortati it's painful to think about when you have kids. I just pray for anyone that has to go through this.
I agree!! RT @Angie_Harmon: The episode of #rizzoliandisles tonight is AWESOME!!!!
Sasha tweeted for over an hour today - a Sunday! Very sweet of her.
Just popping in to say "Hi!" to you all...I hope you are all having a great weekend!
Well let's do it then! RT @itsxdiva we need to get you to 40,00 new #sashanistas before the end of this week. ;)
If they invite us, I would love to go! RT @FindinEmo85 Hey do you think you guys will be at the next comic Con?
Not that I'm aware of... RT @toriciro43 is there an upcoming episode of rizzoli and isles that involves a roller coaster?
Will you live tweet tomorrow? @Aliasanna Not sure yet...
It would be fun, but as of now, no. RT @BENDOESBOSTON will you guys ever go on location in boston? :) you should!
Do you reply to letters as well as autograph what we send to you? @BrandiMortati If i can yes, I am really behind right now though on all my mail! The show has kept me so busy lately.
It's an AMAZING episode! Very intense! RT @maurathebore_a So excited for #RizzoliandIsles-day tomorrow!!!! any comments about the 4th ep?
Now they're having regular viewing parties back home in Geneva. SwissTV needs2buy rizzoli&isles @viktoriabk That's awesome! Thank you! Yes they do, considering that's my second home! :)
Do you understand italian? :) Capisci l'italiano? @eli_duki Yes, most of it. ciao bella!
I'm French & I would like to know if you are already come in France ? @JCapshawFans I have been many times, I LOVE it there!
An amendment to last night:
Last night: do you think you could do a "shoe of the day" like Angie? @MandhaNard if I tweeted my Birkenstocks, Angie would never speak to me again!
Tonight to Angie:Hey, @SashaAlexander1 said you had to okay her tweeting a pic of the Birkenstocks. So, can she?
Angie's response: @Goose197 @SashaAlexander1 absolutely not!! ;)
(On Jimmy Kimmel) do you know what you are gonna talk about? are you gonna wear something sweet or hot? lol @sicilja I do know yes and the dress is hot! :)
Obviously, @SashaAlexander1 can DANCE! Any chance we'll c Maura dancing in S2? @cacooly @janettamaro I'd love that!
Aw, all these responses are for the ladies. No love for your male viewers lol ? @Jetticus_Rex of course I have love for my male viewers!!! ;)
I'd love to see @SashaAlexander1 and @Angie_Harmon share their pretty with the @NOH8Campaign... @bow_and_arrow I'd love to do it!
I don't know if she'll ever see this, but I'd like to thank Sasha for tweeting with us tonight. We all had a blast and it seemed like she was having fun as well. She's always been so generous with her time, and with her schedule free time is rare. Although she couldn't possibly answer every tweet (I mean come on she has over 30,000 followers) she tries to answer as many as time allows. I don't know if she realizes what that means to her fans.
So, thank you Sasha for being the wonderful person you are and for sharing yourself with us. It means more then you will ever know.
LIVE tweeting during Pacific time R&I Episode 203
Last tweet of the night. I'm headed to bed. My favorite line of tonight's episode was "I Don't Like Baby Tomatoes."

"You're Hot!" Did you enjoy hearing that every other scene? @JBBridges I laughed every time.
I'd love to shake the hand of whoever picked the dress and coat that @SashaAlexander1 was wearing at the beginning of the epi. Was stunning! @n8eesma the amazing bob Blackman!!!
Is there a reason for the different colored scrubs - black vs. blue? @kellyeneal black is only Maura because she is a a fashionita..j/k they are actually just a preference.
Are you more a beer or wine girl? @NormaMaravilla Beer on a Sunday afternoon and wine during dinner.
Is there a storyline that you'd like to explore for Maura? @viktoriabk I love Tess' book The sinner and would love to see Maura have a relationship with the priest. Now that's edgy.
What's the most random trivia fact you still remember that Maura has spouted? @fangirliesquee From the pilot. Something to do with Wichita Native Americans. Obviously I don't remember that much...
Do you really know all that much about cars? @Cellobean Yeah. I know a lot because my dad was a big car fan.

LIVE tweeting during Eastern time R&I Episode 203
About the BFF scene:
I know you're all loving this scene right now! @Angie_Harmon & I had so much fun doing this. We laughed the whole time.
Sometimes Maura reminds me of Rain Man. Instead of Sasha pretend it's Dustin Hoffman.
She's good at a lot of things but choosing men isn't one of them. You'll have to watch and see...
Loved the dress in the beginning of the episode! @saraaaroseeex3 Oscar de la Renta... Love it!
How hard was it to get through the teddy bear scene? @TheSaxyOne I liked kissing Jane with the bear!
How was having Ernie Hudson on the set? @gabisassioto I'm a huge fan!!! Amazing!
What are your hair tips? @DallasAlbury09 little product and a curling iron.
Which of the books is your favorite? @Charmedgirl4 I like them all...but the sinner really got me.
She's a brilliant goofball, can you relate to that? @357MonsterBlue in some ways, yes. I like being an outsider.
Have you learned a lot of facts since taking on the role of Maura or do you tend to forget most of it once you film it? @Katix_Song I tend to forget a lot.
Do you like to do comedic scenes or serious scenes more? @NancyDrewGal Love both but comedy is so much more fun!
are there days that no matter what you can not get a serious take? @sandygordley yes, like Friday.. Angie and I were roaring and we couldn't get the take..
How much research do u have to do for ur role? @mddeese lots of googling and working with out homocide tech advisor.
So how hard is it to deliver the one line zingers you're getting without busting into laughter every time? @n8eesma Very! I try to keep a straight face but then @Angie_Harmon laughs at me.
do you think you could do a "shoe of the day" like Angie? @MandhaNard if I tweeted my Birkenstocks, Angie would never speak to me again!
Is your hair originally that color or do you dye it? @MaraIsles dyed, but close to that color without the highlights.
Strut across the crime scene, Maura. I could never walk in those heals. @yotobari288 it's the toughest part of job..
Do you enjoy playing Maura more or did you enjoy playing Kate more on NCIS? @MOOSHitsElisey I love both characters but Maura is more challenging.
