NCIS > NCIS Exclusive: Gary Glasberg on Vance's Loss, Ziva's Revenge & Beyond > Comments Page 2
@sadtonyfan Shabbat Shalom was brilliant and an example of the good stories that the writers of NCIS can accomplish. I'm sure that Shiva will be just as intriguing. However, since you are a Tony fan and I'm one too, I heard that we will get to meet Tony's Mom this season. In a recent video interview, MW discloses this fact. When asked who will be playing the part, he said that he couldn't release that information. Therefore, we do not know whether she will be alive or younger in a dream sequence. It is something good to look forward to on NCIS.
Loved the episode...and can't wait to see the continuation!!!
I am looking forward to seeing this impact Vance's life and Ziva's life.
I was so sad when Vance's wife Jackie died and Ziva's father Eli died, although I was more expecting Eli to die than Jackie.
I am really looking forward to seeing Tony comforting Ziva!!! It sounds like they are going to have a really touching moment!!! I'm loving all the Tiva scenes this season and can't wait for it to progress throughout this season more.
I find myself perturbed by the portrayal of men on tv as bachelors or widowers when in reality, most successful men are married. I don't see the appeal of it and it's now a cliche. Is this how writers think? That great men don't need families or relationships? All male leads on criminal minds are single, The NCIS agents are single and am sure later this season, Sam from NCIS LA will lose his wife. Are women so dispensable on tv and in real life?
Kudos to Shonda for having married leads and it works.
@Janice: I hadn't noticed that before. NCIS does burn more women characters (series regulars and recurring) than they do men. Interesting...
I read somewhere I believe TV Guide where they are having a hard time getting the actor they want for Mcgee dad that they might push the storyline back to next season
I hope Shiva allows both Ziva morn for he Abba and Vance his wife. I hope that Tony and Ziva have a strong friendship bound and that is all. I do not want McGee to be left out as he has been in the past. I also hope to see what was stated a few months back about meeting McGee's father the Admiral coem true in February, since nothing has been mentioned since that time.
I was hoping that Vance is the one who killed ELI for bring this into his home. Really sad that they killed off the character of Jackie. Still not as upset as when the killed off the Franks character tho. Also my God NCIS why always killing the women of NCIS off==Kate Todd, Paula Cassidy, Jenny Shephard and now Jackie Vance. I think I am seeing a trend here LOL. No matter what NCIS still my favorite show
GG: "It definitely clouds judgment a little bit. She has our team on her side and everyone wants to understand exactly what happened and who is responsible but emotion can make us do crazy things and I think that not only does it affect how she’s thinking in this next episode but potentially can affect decisions that she makes coming up, as well."
I just don't want to see "Alcoholic Ziva", "Drug abuse Ziva, "Attempted Suicide Ziva, or "Pregnant after a one-night stand Ziva."
Killing Jackie Vance was a really lousy idea. Eli David was an old man who courted danger all his life, raised his children to it. It’s sad Ziva’s father is dead, but there’s nothing unusual about losing a parent in your 30s. I don’t get how the emphasis is on Ziva, when Vance’s loss would be far more shocking and more shattering. Since season 4 of NCIS, we’ve seen how Gibbs’ losing his wife & daughter warped his life, his relationships, everything about him - is Vance going to be allowed to grieve so completely?
Gibbs lost his wife & daughter in one sudden act that he had nothing to do with and could not have stopped. Vance made a choice that led Jackie’s killers to their home.
Vance was the only one we saw at NCIS with a stable, happy home life (Palmer’s a young newlywed, can’t count yet). In two seasons, he’s been bombed with the Israelis, his old boss tried to kill him in his hospital bed, the brother in law he loved like a brother betrayed his tru
I dread an entire half a season focused on Ziva angst. I'm so sad that the only time writers give Tony anything to do is when it is really about Ziva. You Better Watch Out was such a great episode, but now I see that the only reason they bothered to show us Tony's apartment after nine seasons, was to promote what was really important to them - spoiling a scene in the previews for Shiva showing Ziva in his bed. As a Tony fan, I'm so disappointed that he can't get any serious treatment unless Ziva has her share in it.
The more I think about it, I wonder if Eli didn't set this up himself for some reason in his millions of angles mindset. Maybe he would rather be killed for a purpose than be forced to retire and set aside. I think it got out of hand by killing Vance's wife and potentially, everyone else in the house. I do feel for Ziva and the high mortality count surrounding her constantly. Tony makes a better passionate and committed friend than a lover, IMO. Hope the new assistant director and Gibbs don't have to go through the whole mano-et-mano thing to get along.
Glad to see a shakeup in characters....it's generally what's needed when a show has been this successful, this long. Surprisingly, I think the writers handled the character impacts very well...you can see the seeds planted for a more multi-dimensional Vance(instead of dyspeptic bureaucrat)as well as the opportunity to give more depth to Ziva and(BIG maybe here)a more mature Tony. Don't leave McGee out of the growth equation, tho'....he's more than ready to be accepted as a full-fledged agent--and it's about damned time. Let Gibbs do what he does so well and stay out of his way. I suspect he will also be looking for vengeance but with a much lower(read that devious)profile.
I could see her leaving NCIS and starting a family with someone
