It's an ongoing question among NCIS fans: do you want to see Tony and Ziva as a couple?
It's bullshit that people will stop watching the show if Tiva happens because you can keep your focus on something else. Like now it's not what runs the show. The Tiva has to be done right though! It can not be like "I love you and I always have" and then they kiss for the first time, then I will go vomit!!! it can't go the easy way because Tony and Ziva are who they are, Tony is the sweet, funny and a bit troubled guy and Ziva is the hot, very much troubled and you think know one can be like her because she is out of category... And diffently not perfect!!!They have to share a passionatet kiss so you almost think they are going to have sex right there. It has to be so hot that all you Americans will be angry about it because you think you have to be an adult to watch it then... I will just go "shut up" then and sorry to say it but that's a part of your freaking fucking life! And a 12-year old will not be harmed to watch it - wake up, please!!!
Up front and blunt its a mess. Tiva has been pushed passed the it wont happen. WAY to many pushes and lines like "They weren't faking it, I am married and I know faking." or what ever it was from "Undercovers" But at the same time. them together would get a happy audience for a little wile maybe few episodes but then that draw is gone. so they really are damned if they do damned if they don't Best case scenario they have to balance any relationship time and plot along with the story so that its not about Tony and Ziva all the time and yet have enough meat to the relationship story. Not something that's easy. How many writers jokes fail or just don't play right to the audience. They mess up too much I doubt there is room to fix it. In short they pushed to hard with it for ratings early on Now best option is to let it happen the last season or take a gamble they can write it in an unobtrusive way
While I personally do not want to see tiva, Already = no NCIS, makes a good point. TPTB have been teasing tiva to death here lately and fans have taken the bait. One side is going to be disappointed if they take a clear action giving us tiva or nipping it forever in the bud. How many viewers will they lose? Impossible to say. I think that they will just continue teasing right up to the end, because they know that if they get off the fence, they will lose a significant tool used to entice fans interest for the show. It's aggravating for both sides, but it's probably the safest strategy for the show.
Sorry, but you're ALREADY wrong & out of touch w/ the REALITY of what's happening with this series. "Tiva" has NEVER been the main attraction for NCIS (the team & their personal lives are)...but it has become a HUGE, inevitable part of the show - thanks to TPTB, that made it that way in the FIRST place. Tiva is NOT "Tony or Ziva's" fault; blame the show runners. They've been dangling this relationship in front of the audience for more than SEVEN years, & at random intervals to suit their own Greed for "Ratings". Well, it worked; the Audience has taken the bait - HARD. At this point, if they DON'T deliver on the Tiva they've been shamlessly marketing to the viewers, NCIS WILL end disastrously - and a lot sooner than it intends to.
Yes, yes, yes, yes !!! TIVA FOR EVER !!!!!!!
All I can say is if Tony and Ziva get together (GAG) you can kiss NCIS good-bye. Use your common sense anyone can tell you as soon as a couple gets together on a show, it ends up canceled.
Maybe the "coward" was just being smart. Ziva's arrogant little foray into Somalia wasn't really terribly successful since she wound up being caught. But I guess super Ziva thought she could take on a terrorist army single handedly and come out on top. Maybe the "coward" was using his head and was holding out for a better plan. Ziva has no problem disregarding the chain of command when it suits her whims. (Hiding her murderous boyfriend Rivkin's presence from both NCIS and Mossad, or taking on the Ari mission, not to kill him as she had been ordered to do, but with the intention of proving him innocent.) After her ill advised entrance to Somalia, the NCIS team went for what was originally to put Saleem out of business, and ended up risking their lives as the price for Ziva's arrogance. But I get it - for some of you Ziva is always a victim and never responsible for the consequences of her actions.
"Even in Somalia, she went against the advise of her immediate superior." You mean the coward who decided to ignore HIS direct order to go at any cost?Ziva obeyed the order the director of Mossad gave, which is the only person she had to listen to. I love how people like you always turn things around to go after Ziva, no matter what she does.
We don't actually know how Ziva's mother died. Ziva's connection to the head of Mossad certainly didn't hurt her career though. And at the tender age of 22, she seemed to have higher rank than Eli's right hand man, Hadar because as she coldly bragged in Aliyah, only Eli and herself had the authority to authorize Tony's murder. Eli began to be portrayed as cold only after the season 6 finale debacle. And I suppose Ziva could have shot Ari in his gun hand instead of in the head, in the mission for which she herself volunteered. Even in Somalia, she went against the advise of her immediate superior. IMO, she's not quite as victimized as some like to believe. She's made a lot of questionable choices, and that would be okay, except that she always blames others for the consequences.
Maybe Ziva didn't have a bad childhood,but her sister and mother were killed,she was forced to kill her own brother,her father is an asshole,a person like that would definitely have many issues,she's been through a lot and I really do feel sorry for her. And she and Tony would make an awesome couple.
