NCIS Spoilers: The Return of Eli David

at . Comments

In typical fashion, NCIS hinted briefly on this week's season premiere at a major, future story arc that had nothing to do with the plot unfolding Tuesday: The return of Eli David.

According to Entertainment Weekly, in November, Ziva comes face-to-face with her dad for the first time since her return from Israel. Executive producer Shane Brennan says:

“It’s an emotionally-charged reunion [with Ziva] in a two-part episode that also reveals much about the enigmatic Eli David and one of the other team members.”

That's gotta be Vance, right?
