NCIS Episode Preview: What is Ziva's Endgame?

at . Comments

Is a vengeful Ziva David about to go rogue on NCIS?

This possibility was alluded to earlier, and apparently becomes a genuine possibility in next week's episode, as Tony suspects she is planning a risky move to avenge her father's death.

Think she is? If so, what will her big plan entail?

Meanwhile, when a Navy reservist returns home to find her husband missing and her living room covered in blood, she turns to Gibbs and the rest of the NCIS team to bring him home.

Check out the "Chasing Ghosts" promo below:

The show returns next Tuesday before taking another week off, then coming back for four straight to finish NCIS Season 10. Click to enlarge photos from the April 9 installment, as well:

on April 10th Robin Roderick said Cote de Pablo had signed her contract. Apparently this person was wrong.


I would love to read the article as well that Cote has signed a new contract. And TPTB would be worth of a major head slap stupid and not tell us if Cote signed or not. Not telling us until last second (if she has signed or does so soon)is only going to get them hate mail. Why would the number one show in many countries put the fans that make them that popular through hell? Since Mark Harmon is a producer of the show... Hopefully he will be kind enough to leak the news. Or someone else.


@Robin Roderick Where did you get the information that Cote de Pablo has signed a new contract? The last time she signed a new contract was on April 28, 2011. That contract runs out this month. I have not seen any information for this years negotiations. Could you please tell me where you found your information because I would like to read the article. Thanks.


Cote De Pablo has already signed her contract for two more years people, I don't think they are going to kill off Ziva.


Cote de Pablo has said several times that she would like to be on the show until it ends. hope she still feels the same way. We all need to remember that Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette and Sean Murray did not have their contracts resolved until July 11 of last year. So, we still have some time until Cote's may be resolved. And I believe that the show may hide the results of her contract negotiations in order to keep us guessing until next season!


I think that one of 3 things will happen by the end of the season/beginning of next season: 1. Tiva goes canon. The amount of UST being bandied around with is at an incredible level this season compared to others, and the last episode is almost screaming for a set-up. 2. Plot resolves, all goes back to normal. 3. Ziva gets killed off or is otherwise removed from the show. As we know, CDP is in contract negotiations this year. This plotline, like Somalia, may be a way to leave room for a potential departure. I would rather this not happen, as I would never watch the show again, but until it's official she's returning, we can assume this could happen.




My guess is that Ziva will do the tracking/dirty work but just as she's about to carry out her 'sentence', Tony/Gibbs/the team will catch up to the gig and keep her from finishing the job...then things could get dicey!!


Except writers don't decide episode scheduling. The network that airs the shows do. Why else would most shows end on the same week?


@Simple I totally agree just look at CM they seem to do repeat every other week
