It feel like their doing the samething to Ziva they did to Jenny right before they killed her off
I am aware of the tree planting for the deceased...but I thought she was also burying something besides the tree. Oh, well...better not be grading papers when I am watching NCIS.
Guess I ran out of room on the previous comment I made. I was saying that Vance and Gibbs have a new level of understanding in their relationship. They have always been suspicious of one another. Perhaps now they will be able to work together better. The Assistant Director is an odd mixture of firmness and nervousness. NCIS is a great show, deserving of more recognition than it gets.
All I can say is "WOW" regarding this 2 episode arc. The acting was superb. I have always seen that Tony was a solid rock under all the silliness, and have often thought I would want him as my backup in a tough situation (not to mention he is very good looking). Many tender moments between the various characters. Abby's cookies were a nice touch, and Ducky's "grandfather" comment was great! Nice to see Tim be more assertive. Where was Palmer? And Gibbs, as always, is my favorite. I wondered about Schmeil, too. I hope he isn't involved, but...
As for Ziva's knife at the end of the scene planting the olive tree, she wiped off the dirt on it. I think she used it to dig a hole to plant the little tree. She did not have a shovel with her. Yes, we are left with many unanswered questions that I hope will be explored as the season goes on. Michael Nouri was excellent as Eli, and I will miss him. And Vance's lovely wife, too. Now Vance and Gibbs have a new level of understanding in their rel
Wonderful episode and I agree this show does not get the attention it deserves from whoever does these award shows. That's ok I don't watch them anymore, except for the Tony awards.
Cote was amazing in her role this past two weeks, and yes Gibbs was there for Ziva because he put Tony in charge of taking care of her. Gibbs had to work the case and has always been there for Ziva.
Love it when Ducky and McGee get their two cents worth in too.
As for Abby, I think the zaniness is part of what we love. Along with that is a caring character. Wouldn't change her a bit.
The best I have ever seen I cried for both Ziva and Vance's children. No words but thoughts. It's not over.
@RobinR----won't have to worry about Hadr---he was done in a couple seasons ago when a claimore mine nearly claimed both Vance and Eli.
I've got to admit that I was wrong about Mossad being responsible for Eli's death,...even though it was not 'sanctioned', rather being a selfish move by the deputy director to move to the top---at least, that's what we're being led to believe so far?!!
That's the problem I have right now---it seems we've been left up in the air still---like we need a third episode here to tie up some loose ends.
It was actually over 21 million for last week and prelim number are over 22 million for this week. Yes, give this show as well as the actors some well earn awards and recongition.
Like others here, I cannot believe NCIS was again snubbed by an industry award. Not only did NCIS pull 20.4 million viewers last week - a record this year I believe - but its writers this season have obviously responded to its fans who pleaded with them to go back to their roots and start writing the quality scripts as they had in their first 4 or 5 years. This is probably NCIS's finest season in its 10 year history. And kudos again to Cote de Pablo and also Michael Weatherly (for the Christmas episode too) for their outstanding acting in these past several weeks.
@Ellen - you wrote "I must be really off base. I thought the whole point of showing Ziva burying something and then the big knife meant that she had already sliced and diced Bodnar and was burying him where no one could find him. I guess I missed the point."
In Israel, when you want to remember someone, you plant a tree. Ziva was merely planting an Olive tree for her father. When she was done, her pulling out a (big) knife signaled that she was done honoring her father - and ready to go after his killer.
Wow! Fantastic episode this week! Kudos to my man Michael Weatherly for his performance this week. I didn't realize that underneath all that clowniness there is indeed a thoughtful, kind caring individual. And what he did for Ziva...awe!!! So sweet.and the TIVA moments..holy crap! At the end I thought Tony said: I love you in Hebrew. Turns out it was: you are not alone. Kinda disappointing but in another way good too. Next weeks episode is a repeat sadly but maybe it'll return the week after. And I also don't get why NCIS is ignored completely from GG as well as People's Choice..people why aren't you voting for NCIS?!?
Great and heart rendering episode. The entire case showed their strength in how the stand behind one another in not only work atmosphere, but in the personal feelings as well. No words can express how fine and great a show NCIS is.
The episodes for the past two weeks seem more like "sweeps week" or "season finale" story arcs. It makes me wonder what they are planning for the rest of this season.
I see that folks have commented on Ducky's grandfather line, but no one has mentioned its significance.
As NCIS does fairly often, the scriptwriters sneak in little tidbits from previous roles or the personal lives of the actors.
With David McCallum, in "The Man From UNCLE" two-part episode, "The Concrete Overcoat Affair", Illya Kuryakin was faced with the machine-gun wielding Stiletto Brothers. As he plotted a way to distract them, he asked, "Whose grandfathers are you people?"
WOW what a show. Loved DUCKY, Loved Tim, and Tony. OMG Tony was the best friend a person could ask for. I was so impressed by the writing. I have been getting a little bored with NCIS, but these past two weeks have made be fall in love with it all over again. Now, I know all episodes cannot be so emotional but this shows that the writers can still write well and write for a complete ensemble show.
one of the best yet. Loved it.
THIS IS FAR AND AWAY THE. BEST. EPISODE. OF. THE. SEASON.
I don't understand why this show is virtually IGNORED at the Golden Globes and the Emmys,but this series will be long remembered when the likes of SURVIVOR,THE CELEBRITY APPRENTICE,and all the so-called 'reality' shows are
sent to the recycling plant.
David McCallum should get a LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD for his work in
this series and 'The Man from U.N.C.L.E.'
I was stunned at the death of the Director's wife, Jaqui.........I loved her character despite the fact that she was infrequent on the show...........I am going to miss her....This show is terrific and I love the entire ensemble of characters.........There were so many touching and poignant scenes in this episode
I must be really off base. I thought the whole point of showing Ziva burying something and then the big knife meant that she had already sliced and diced Bodnar and was burying him where no one could find him. I guess I missed the point.
Great episode! My mind is taking me back to the scene in a previous episode where Ziva tells her father that Schmeil is not a fan of his and he just happens to be in the country when all of this goes down. It appeared that Ziva did not know he was in New York. Could he be involded? I hope not, I really love his character and it would really hurt Ziva if she was betrayed by her old friend.
It is my best tv show and I love the characters. It has sure turned out to be a show on suspense and talent. I don't know where it will lead but will be there to watch.
The way Tim stood up and took charge when he was in the office was great. This has to be one of the best episodes in a long time. I do believe Zive will get revenge yet.
I wouldn't be surprised if Leon finds Bodnar, kills him, and then Gibbs and Ducky somehow cover it up. Gibbs knows Leon's pain, and Ducky has their backs.
Kind of like the olde tone meister
I never miss this show. As far as I am concerned it is the best. Last night was no exception. What a great cast and all of them so strong in portraying their characters. They have all grown in the years they have been on the air, I feel like they are family.
Cote de Pablo has stated before that there is a representative on set from the real NCIS at all times. This person guides them in the scenes and helps to keep things accurate. This person said that the show does a pretty good job of representing the real NCIS but he also knows that things will be tweaked for television and was perfectly fine with that. He knows that they are going to magnify things for television in order to keep things interesting and to propel stories forward. So, if the real NCIS is ok with the content of the show I think we can all be comfortable with it.
