I am absolutely not ready to discuss my feelings on this matter, but Ziva is leaving NCIS. I am rather saddened by this.
Let me repeat that for those of you who maybe didn’t read it right the first time: Cote de Pablo will not be returning for season 11 of NCIS
She’s been part of the team for as long as I’ve been watching and I really do adore her character. They’ve written her to be funny, strong, lovable and capable. I’ve loved watching her learn American English, love Tony and be much of a daughter to Gibbs. She’s Abby’s best girl friend, and protects McGee from Tony’s pranks and jokes.
She will be missed.
For today’s Thursday Three, I present you with three of my favorite Ziva moments:
- When the team rescues her from the Somalian prison. Hands down my favorite episode and makes me cry every time. That’s teamwork for you. (Truth or Consequences)
- When Ziva saves Gibbs and kills Ari. Need I say more? (Kill Ari)
- Any moment between her and Tony. Tony really loves her and I love that he has someone to love for real. I love that between him, McGee, Gibbs they’ve shown her that not all men are like her father or other officers of Mossad that she grew up around and know. I believe that the characters of Ziva and Tony have genuine love and affection for one another and while I know it’s not feasible for them to actually be together, maybe they can get a quickie in before she’s gone?
I’ll certainly miss her when she’s gone, I just hope they don’t kill her. That’s never cool.
Are you an NCIS fan? What’s your favorite Ziva moment?
