Recap

After the horror of Eli David and Jackie Vance's deaths, the team works hard to figure out who was behind the shooting.  The threat of war hinges on the outcome of the investigation, as Iran is implicated.  Meanwhile, Ziva wants only one thing: revenge for her father's death.

cont. As the NCIS Director, Vance should have known better and taken steps to protect Eli while in the country and especially in his home. However, really.......NO ONE IS AT FAULT, except those who took the shots and/or ordered the hit.

@gatorgal.....Thanks for the info on the photos. Got to see a couple of different ones then on the other site. I also agree in regard to Ziva NOT being at fault. She did think it was odd that the man in the photo had the same kind of hat her father was wearing; however, it is a common hat as Abby had said. Eli had told her that he had come in that day after (so couldn't have killed him) and Ziva had no real proof, but did decide to find out if he had lied and was somehow involved. When she did she cut him out of her life. She only went to dinner because they were at Vance's house and her father asked for one more dinner together, but when he gave his speech, she couldn't take it any longer and called Gibbs. Vance IS at more fault here in my eyes. He invited a man he KNEW had a target on his forehead into his home. He did not order Gibbs or anyone who knew he was there as protection for Eli or even himself while they where in his home. As the Director of NCIS, he should have know better.

Also, in the scenes for next week, the last scene showing Ziva getting off multiple shots is the same scene in "Shabbat Shalom" when se shot at the shooter as he was driving toward her.

Regarding Ziva withholding info about her father being the killer of the journalist, and therefore an accessory to the death of Jackie Vance, it was clear she suspected but needed to find out from her father before she turned him in. His admission in the car and sitting at the table could have taken less that 20 min. After meeting with Eli and Arash, Vance knew both of their governments would kill them if they knew they were in the US meeting, and yet Vance felt comfortable to invite Eli to his home to share Shabbat. He could have easily let Eli and Ziva do this on their own, but as he told Jackie, he and Eli needed to have a private conversation. So In my mind, Vance is as much to blame by having Eli at his home.

Ziva is not there as Eli's body would of been flown back to Isreal for a proper Jewish burial and I am sure Ziva will be escorting the body back. Will she get mad at the now leaders of Mosad as they did not protect him and let him out of the country unescorted by security. Interesting plot this season. I really enjoyed Jackie Vance, she was a kick in the pants.

I think that Shiva will be mostly about the team rallying around Ziva and the Vance family grief. Ziva will be written as a combination of victim and vengeful super ninja. Tony and Gibbs will be in the supporting roles. I still wonder if anyone will mention that Ziva with held information that might have changed the outcome for Eli and Jackie had she been forthcoming.

@guest Thank for the info on where to see the pictures. On your theory about not having left Ziva alone, they should have made some mention of it so viewers would know. What was shown was that they were at the hospital for some time and no one was Ziva. It also looks as if no one went to pay their respect to Eli, not that he deserved it, but someone should be there to support Ziva. Of course, this is just guess work at this time, we will see how it all turns out next week.

I know that NCIS is making a political statement, but what is it? If indeed the CIA is responsible, WWHHYY? I have to understand Armageddon better to know why. Regardless, a great piece of writing!!!! No wonder NCIS is so popular!!!!

You can find the photos on a website called Ladies of NCIS. It definitely shows everyone but Ziva at Jackie's funeral. I think that they left Ziva in the house alone so that she could have her private grief time with her father and say her goodbyes. I think they probably waited outside for the coroner and then Ziva went with her father's body while the rest of the team went to the hospital to check on Vance. I don't think anyone was trying to leave Ziva alone and be disrespectful. The pictures also show that Ziva will be staying at Tony's apartment.

@gatorgal, where did you see the pictures?

NCIS Season 10 Episode 12 Quotes

Bodnar: And whose grandfather would you be?
Ducky: Well that depends. Who's your grandmother?

You know this whole ordeal has made me realize something that I didn't expect. It's helped me better understand your choices. I always thought I had a sense of how you felt at the time, Gibbs. Now I realize I wasn't close. I never wanted that kind of justice before, but since the other night....hell, that's all I think about. Was it worth it, Gibbs? It had to be some relief.
