Cote de Pablo Teases What's Next For Tiva on NCIS

by at . Comments

NCIS Season 10 kicks off September 25, and the premiere promises to be worth the wait.

Perhaps first and foremost among the many burning questions heading into the new season? What's next for Ziva and Tony, a pair whose chemistry has been off the charts since she was first introduced, but whose relationship status has sparked strong debate in recent years among the show's fan base.

Cote de Pablo (Ziva) recently spoke to Hitfix about her character and that very subject.

On the subject of whether Tony and Ziva will get together, she said:

"I don't know, but it's definitely going to be more explored. [Fans] want more things to happen between these characters. And I think the writers are on board, and they want more things to happen. And I think it will."

On where we pick up when NCIS Season 10 begins:

"Well, the cliffhanger is that we were stuck in an elevator. The bomb exploded and the next thing you know we're on the floor. Nothing else is seen. So, we have no idea what happened."

"The beginning of this year, we're still stuck in an elevator - you find us there - and we have a nice little bit in the elevator, which is so much fun."

On her on-screen chemistry with Michael Weatherly:

"Ironically, the writers just saw the chemistry between these two characters, and they were like, we've gotta do more of this, and Michael [Weatherly] and I jumped. Of course you have to do more of this! This is what we love to do, so hopefully they're going to have more scenes and explore that relationship more. It's always fun for us."

"We embrace it all, and whenever there is tension between the characters, Michael and I take distance from each other. We do; it just happens naturally. It just does. And whenever we have to be more connected, we just naturally come together. It's really funny. So right now we're getting together, and I think the writers are going, oooh, look at the chemistry there, and he and I are like, it's always been there. You just have to seize it. Always."

Ziva and Tony should definitely get together

As long as they can make an interesting show that's cool with me. So far it looks as if they are friends I haven't really seen any Tiva romantic scenes. It just appears a lot of flirting from both sides.
Also agree that Cote does an excellent job. I do hope that she will have other storylines besides the "tiva" stuff though.

HER ACTING GETS WORSE AND WORSE EVERY YEAR, WHY THE HELL DOES SHE YELL ALL OF HER LINES, AND DO THOSE WEIRD SHAKING MOVEMENTS WITH HER BODY, I THOUGH OVERACTING WAS A LESSON IN ACTING FOR BEGINNERS.

Don't have to worry about it this time Michael. Both MW and Cote will be with the show until it goes off of the air.

@Patricia The people who hired her, including DPB, disagree with you.

I guess my only real issue everytime two actor on a cop show hook up one or both of them end up leaving the show and it go down hill

They have amazing chemistry without even trying. in her first season I thought Ziva and Tony were going to throw each other on the nearest desk and go at it. It has become far deeper and more nuanced over the years, and I would LOVE to see them get together.

There is very little variation in Ziva's line delivery or her facial expressions. She uses her silky voice to flirt, loud and fast delivery for her angry scenes, and her slightly sour smug clipped speech for everything else. Ziva mostly snarls at and berates Tony. What does being a natural beauty have to do with the quality of her affection? She makes the occasional flirt face at Tony, but she does the same thing with all male guest stars. I don't see hot chemistry. I just see two pretty actors. IMO that doesn't equal chemistry.

I think Tony and Ziva have tons of chemistry.She's a natural beauty and there are subtle clues here and there....it's they work together...and a relationship can wreck things...we will see where they take it, it will be fun to wait and see....
