Tuesday night's NCIS Season 11 premiere was aptly named "Whiskey Tango Foxtrot" - or "WTF."
That's what many fans were likely asking along with the team, which was being led on a wild goose chase and targeted by a terrorist group of unknown origin after the SecNav's assassination.
Also, the first part of Cote de Pablo's farewell arc did not feature her, except for a few texts.
Ziva's whereabouts are still unknown as we head into next week, though the premiere did result in Tony getting his badge back and revealing just how much he cares for her. So what now?
Determined to locate Ziva, Tony chases leads in Israel in search of her current whereabouts. Meanwhile, Gibbs and the team continue the frantic hunt for Parsa and his growing terrorist ring.
Watch the first promo for "Past, Present & Future" here and see what you think:
How do you think it will play out? All indications are that Tony will reunite with Ziva, if only for one fleeting moment. What is your ideal scenario as far as her inevitable exit from the series?
CBS has also released a batch of images from next week's installment. Gibbs is looking worse for the wear, that's for sure. Click to enlarge photos from the much-anticipated episode below:
