If Ellie must stay, maybe they can rethink and redo her character. First of all, cut that messy hair. Ziva had long hair; Kate had medium-long; so give Ellie a really short hairdo like Jennifer Lawrence. Then decide if she will be a blonde, in which case, wash those eyebrows off. Whether blonde or brunette, lighten the eyebrows. She looks freakish this way. Then give her some decent clothes, call her "probie" and let her learn the job before running the team. She should be a background person, not the star. It's not the poor actress's fault - she must be reeling from the bad reviews - it is the writers' fault that they let the show go off in a really bad direction.

I know that it's water that helps flowers grow, but in your case, I think a saucer of milk would meet the case.

NCIS was a special show until whoever decided to make it Barbie saves the world. The Ziva and Kate actresses were real women but I quit watching a favorite show. Good luck with that annoying character!

Y'know...I've read all of these comments and noticed something rather "interesting." Most of the posters who can't wrap their heads around the fact that Ziva is gone.....G to the O to the N to the E.....na na naaaa na hey hey heyyyy Shaaaaa-loooooom...are women. I won't pretend to know what the motivation is but it makes me wonder how people reacted after Kate was killed and Ziva joined the team. Did people trash her after three episodes too, or did they give her a chance to find her groove with the team?

Not making judgments...again, just find it rather interesting.

That's quite an assumption you make. I liked Ziva but don't care that she left. I know friends and family who liked Ziva but didn't care that she left. We all knew that she was an actress that wanted to leave and we had faith that a show that had successfully transitioned many actors would do it again. Sadly, they failed miserably. I'm of the firm belief that the Bishop cheerleaders are the actress' family and friends who rah-rah her and hope their repeated, "You hate her because she's not Ziva" will catch on. Sorry. Bishop is a horrible character. I don't need to give the laundry list of reasons because if you truly read the comments (instead of automatically making your assumption) you would know why people hate the character that has nothing to do with Ziva.

This episode was the first one I started watching and stopped mid way. I'm done. Slowly the rest of my friends and family are going in that same direction. They are holding on for a little longer hoping their faith in the creators and writers pans out but are losing that faith each week. If as many people who are hating her stop watching because of her, I think this would be the first time in history that one character caused the demise of a top rated show.

O.K., first up, I am neither friend or family of the actress playing Bishop but unlike you, I'm willing to give her a chance as are the shows producers by keeping her on for the rest of the season.

After an initial fall back in ratings, NCIS has rallied and I presume will continue to do so as people get off their high horses and come back to the show.

Bishop "is a horrible character" IN YOUR OPINION, to which you are entirely entitled as I am to think she is an interesting and vibrant addition to NCIS.

It is hugely unlikely that Bishop's place on the show will kill it off.

Sorry but the loss of yourself, your family and friends as viewers will be an immeasurable blip in the greater scheme of things.

I liked last night's episode, but I did have a couple of problems with it. There was no natural break between this episode and the next. Nothing was accomplished in this one. It's like it just fell off.

The other thing was Bishop. I do like her, but the writers have her doing the same thing over and over. She's becoming irritating. No surprises. Maybe the writers can have Gibbs put her in a chair at her desk and tell her to stay there and to keep her butt off the floor, tables and desks.

I liked the gal that was so much like Tony, that they thought they knew each other. How fun.

I would like to have seen Tim shed a tear while sitting with Gibbs, and maybe Gibbs pat his back, squeeze his shoulder, or rub his neck. It would have made the scene more poignant.

I loved last week's episode with Borin. She's a doll. I'd like to see more of her.

I also dont agrre with those Zealots. Making threats or calling others baby killers are equally offensive. I however have not read any posts where people have said that Bishop or the actress portraying her should die and so should those who like her. There is a big difference. Someone saying they dont like Ellie and want Ziva back does not equate to being a killer plain and simple. End of story.

Unfortunately Ellie Bishop's quirkiness has now become annoying. Sitting cross-legged on desks, doing her work on the floor while munching on something or another and babbling away a mile a minute. The writers need to slow her down and not make her the focus of every show and the only one, seemingly, who has all the answers.

Cote isn't coming back. Give Bishop a fair chance. I like her. She is so different from both Ziva and Kate.

To the people who run this page-it is time to censor Dean and keep him from posting on this site. I respect
everyone's opinion and believe that people have a right to feel what they
feel. However, Dean does not talk
about the episode. All he does is
accuse those who mention Ziva or
Cote of being baby killers. Enough is
enough. Surely you all must have a
way of blocking him because this
goes beyond any human decency.

He has a point, albeit disgustingly made... there are zealots that a)Hate Bishop b)Want Cote back and c) Both A&B that quickly turn many a discussion into a virtual cesspool. Not just here - but any Facebook post on the CBS-NCIS page quickly turns to ordure. I'm tired of it.

@ KeithH

What point does he make? He says nothing except that people are baby killers. There is no point. He says nothing else.

There are zealots that hate Bishop and want Ziva back and would stoop to anything to get their way. They're just as ridiculous to me as you think Dean is...

Check Twitter #TCA14 & #NCIS for some good stuff from showrunner Glassberg at Television Critics Association showrunner panel discussion... I hope TVF has someone there and does an article on it...

Bishop needs to go or her character changed. She is annoying. She talks too fast and is a 'know it all'. She seems to be the main star. Not fair to Gibbs, Tony or Tim. If this show continues the way it is, I'm done watching it.
