NCIS Show-Runner Hints at Tiva Taking Things "Further"

by at . Comments

It looks like Tiva worshippers may finally get their wish ... or at least come closer to it.

NCIS executive producer Gary Glasberg tells TV Guide that we may see things progress to a new level between Tony (Michael Weatherly) and Ziva (Cote de Pablo) in Season 10.

One way or another, post-bombing trauma may bring the duo closer than ever.

Anthony and Ziva

"The elevator scenes are so good," Glasberg says of the opening episode, which finds them trapped after Richard Schiff's Harper Dearing detonated a car bomb outside NCIS HQ.

"[Tony and Ziva] can't help but be affected by this in a certain way, and they will continue to reach out to each other because of the connection they have as friends and as coworkers."

"There are definitely 'moments.' I'd like to take things a little further along than we have [in the past]."

What do you think those moments will consist of? Or should consist of? Do you want one of TV's most buzzed-about will-they-or-won't-they couples to finally go there?

Sound off on all things Tony, Ziva and NCIS in the comments below ...

As much as I want Tony and Ziva to be together the writers do need to take Gibbs rule 12, "Never Date a Co-Worker" they'd need to seek Gibbs approval, I mean they probably would anyway seeing as Gibbs is the fatherly figure in both of their lives.

I just don't understand why the writers need to bring these two together? All that shit about character developement and moving forward, JUST FUCKING STOP IT! That is not the characters we fell in love with. They should just stay the same as in season 3. I want THOSE characters back. Stop trying to force them to grow up. They're fictional characters, not real people. Michael I will always agree with everything that you say!
They should just stop with the whole personal stories and keep it what it is, a crime show! Stop trying to force their personal issues on us, we're NOT interested!!

This is my favorite show. I was married to the same woman for
40 years until she passed away. She wanted Ziva and Tony to get
married and have a life together and so do I. There can be great
rewards for them. I would love to see a marriage on tv that was
as great as the one I had. A marriage that actually shows a Man
and Woman treating each other with the respect they deserve and
the love they need. A really honest and clean relationship where
they support each other in every way.

Tony and Ziva have been avoiding a relationship although deep down they totally love each other, both afraid to commit to one another. It is time! Go for it TIVA !

McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: Wait - isn't that a violation of rule 12, never date a....
McGee: It was a long time ago. After we'd broken up, one night I went to her lab. Found a scribbled piece paper; a list. Potential boyfriends had to fulfill certain conditions by a pre-arranged date or else, goodbye.
Bishop: Such as.
McGee: Things started off relatively normal: opening the door for her, flowers, putting the seat down. Then around number 8, it gets uh...
Bishop: What?
McGee: Does she know you have these?
Bishop: Does she know you have these?
McGee: Yeah she wasn't happy when she found out.
Bishop: These are all very specific.
McGee: Yeah.
Bishop: These ideas apply to you?
McGee: No those rules weren't in place when we were together. At least I don't think so.
Bishop: What's with the two month cutoff? Abby's sabotaging herself. I've seen stuff like this before. We have to talk to her.

McGee: Rule number 70 - keep digging till you hit bottom.
Abby: McGee! There is no rule 70.
McGee: Well, I--
Abby: You just made up a rule. This McGibbs thing has really gone to your head. I don't even recognize you right now.
