NCIS Creator Teases "Evolution" of Tiva

at . Comments

As you read through a number of plot developments on various CBS season finales, here's a closer look at what is sure to be one of the most popular ones.

TV Guide Senior Editor Matt Webb Mitovich spoke to NCIS creator Shane Brennan this week to get the inside dish on Tony and Ziva.

What, exactly, will they be up to over the next few weeks, including the season finale?

"What happens over these next episodes is an evolution of their relationship, though perhaps more extreme than you would get in your normal [workplace]," Mitovich said. "These people do carry guns!"

In the wake of certain events during the May 19 season-ender, the producer added: "It's up to the audience to decide, and they will over the summer, what might happen [next]. But everything has a life, and eventually things end."

However, Brennan was quick to point out that he didn't specifically say Tiva was going to end. Thanks for the clear insight, Shane!
