They don't have complete control only Mark and Cote do the rest are allowed to give ideas.

I have to say I like what they have plan for the rest of the season

And if they are in control of how their characters are written and portrayed shouldn't the blame then for Tony acting like an a** be placed on Michael Weatherly's shoulders?!?

part 2
MW would have walked out the door a long time ago. But, no, he stays because he loves his job and he even said he loves working with Cote. In fact, he said just the other day that she was awesome. Read his article about NCIS continuing on with the Core DNA.

Brilliance just means they are good actors and good at their craft, it does not equate to creative control. Sorry, that doesn't happen. Yes, little nuances of who the person is are worked into the character, i.e. Mark Harmon was a carpenter so Gibbs as a wood worker was added as one of his characteristics. Michael Weatherly is good at ad-libbing so they let him have takes where he just adds things to the dialogue. That in no way translates to script writing and plot development for the show. If you watched the cast on "The Talk" in May, you would have heard both Michael and Cote say that they had no idea what was going to happen between their characters. They both have said this several times in on air and written interviews. Adding the essence of someone to their character in no way allows them to have creative control. And really, do you really believe that Cote has more control over the writers than Michael? I highly doubt that. And if he was really bothered by it, MW would have walked out the door a long time ago. But, no, he stays because he loves his job and he even said he loves working with Cote. I believe he just said the other day that she was awesome. Read his comments he made about the show going on with the Core DNA.

Every cast member of NCIS has input about the character they play. They suggest, decide and describe distinct attributes of their characters. This has been on many Talk Shows and Videos. When Mark Harmon was inducted into the Walk of Fame and received a Star, he said that NCIS would not be the hit show it is without the brilliance of each cast member.

Once again, are people really that ignorant to think that Cote de Pablo has anything to do with how her character is written or how Tony is written? Geez people, understand that this is the writers and no one else. Who are you going to blame now when Tony acts like an a** in an episode?!? I can't wait for this. But, I'm sure it won't be the writers or the creators of the show. I'm sure it will probably be Gibbs or McGee or Abby or someone else besides Tony and how he is written! Perhaps a better way to state this would be-"I hope that the writers decide to step up their game and go back to writing Tony in a way that makes him competent." See, it can be done without slamming Cote de Pablo and the character of Ziva who have nothing to do with the writing of Tony and how MW plays him.

I am so glad Cote is finally leaving. Maybe Tony will now find a woman worthy of him.I find the Ziva character abrasive and cold. Tony deserves better.

We all have our opinions because we are fans of NCIS. We just thought a few words should be spoken about Tony. Ziva in hiding with their baby and him going on with his regular life, does not appear good for the character of Tony.

We do not know what has happened over the last 4 months. Tony and Ziva could have been together. Since she slept with Adam in January, she would be about 8 months pregnant in Sept, so that isn't an option considering she doesn't look heavy in the promos. And what I want is what I wish for and I was agreeing with other people. It doesn't make it fact so you do not have to comment on our opinion. I am very aware of the storyline of NCIS and know who has been with whom, etc.....We are just having fun. The writers will do what they want and none of us will have a say in it.

@ Guest and those who think that Ziva is pregnant with Tony's baby and went into hiding to protect the baby. Those who really know the character of Tony tend to believe differently. He would not allow her and the baby to go into hiding without his protection. If at all possible, he would become a rogue agent, in order to protect them. Tony has needed a family for a long time and would not walk away on this chance to have one.
