NCIS Round Table: "Double Blind" (5/11/2013)@gatorgal Well at least if it's purely a Gibbs' rule the writers have the potential to write round it. I used to watch Stargate SG1 - the writers felt unable to follow through on the will they won't they relationship because in the Airforce they wouldn't be permitted to work together. Any hints at a potential relationship finally just fizzled out when Richard Dean Anderson left the series - leaving the situation disappointingly unresolved.....
NCIS Round Table: "Double Blind" (5/11/2013)@gatorgal Though it certainly could be argued that Ziva should not have gone after Bodnar alone, not only was she not 100% fit and therefore at greater risk herself, but she had no one to watch her six, after all Bodnar might not have been alone.
NCIS Round Table: "Double Blind" (5/11/2013)@gatorgal You're totally right - Tiva is fast approaching its sell by date. I only wondered if towards the end of the finale something might happen since if Cote doesn't return (and she's a young actress who may well just want to do something else now) this could potentially be a case of Tiva now or never. I've also seen GG state that if they did become a couple they'd have to split the team. Is that right? Other than Gibb's rule 12 can an NCIS couple not work together - no one said anything about marriage and unlike the oft quoted Moonlighting, they're not the sole leads - if imaginatively written I don't see why it couldn't work, as things stand their schizophrenic relationship (depending on who's the writer of the week) is now becoming more frustrating and unlikely by the minute.
