Recap

The Season 11 premiere of NCIS, titled “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” picks up where we left off at the end of Season 10.  After Parson confronts Tom Morrow outside a concert hall about his frustration with the stymied investigation of NCIS, a bomb goes off which kills SecNav Clayton Jarvis, and injuring Morrow. Meanwhile Gibbs is sent to Iran to investigate the death of Lt. McBride, only to find himself in an ambush from which he is rescued by Parsons.  Parsons now believes he was lead into a witch hunt of NCIS, only as a means to discredit the team.  Meanwhile, as a civilian Tony makes plans to join Ziva in Israel, but as he gets ready to leave he comes under fire from a sniper from outside his apartment.  He escapes to NCIS and after learning that Parsons has ended his investigation, he and McGee get their badges back.  When Ducky and Palmer confront and disable an ex-FBI agent who was attempting to hack into their system, the team learns that their firewall has come under attack and that all of their cellphones has been compromised.  This leads Gibbs and Fornell to discover that all of the activity - the assassination attempts, the hacking and the death of McBride are all linked.  NCIS, SecNav and Homeland Security have been getting too close to the truth: that a terrorist organization called "Brotherhood of Doubt" has formed partnerships with U.S. companies, with a view to creating destruction in order to allow those companies to bid on rebuilding infrastructure. When Abby discovers the origins of the bomb from the concert hall, Gibbs and his team storm the terrorists' hideout, only to find it empty, except for some explosives and some pictures of their targets.  Ziva knows what happened with the bombing, and with Tony being targeted, so she goes into hiding.  Tony calls on Ziva's friend Damon Dayoub to rescue her at a safe house.  When they do, they find three dead men in her place, and Ziva gone.

@Guest Well said. I am a retired Nurse and get so sick of people saying how much we get paid but don't realize how physically and emotionally damaging the job is; plus having to constantly rotate shifs, every other weekend, overtime and holiday. If you don't do it, you don't get it.

would be willing to work 12-16 hour days, 5-6 days a week for 9 months of the year. I wouldn't. I lived in the LA area and spent some time on a TV set. Filming an episode is a long and tedious process. You are constantly waiting. I spent one day on the set of GLEE and it took 7 hours to film one scene. The actors were all there with us, waiting, too. I cannot imagine doing that everyday for my job. It was mind numbingly boring Yes, the money is good but life isn't always about the money. I will miss her a lot, but I am looking forward to what she will do next. And if you are a true fan of the show, you will support the rest of the cast by tuning in for season 11.

I don't believe that Ziva will be killed. I think she will be forced to go back to Israel or she will go into hiding to avoid arrest or Bodnar's people. I fully believe that Gary Glasberg will leave the door open for her to return for the series finale (whenever that will occur) if she should so choose to do that. As for Cote de Pablo leaving, people need to let it go. It was her choice. She wanted to leave even though she said it was a very hard decision because of the cast and the fans. To wish her ill will or say things like don't let the door hit you in the a** is really immature and inappropriate. I love Ziva and Cote. She is my favorite. I am very sad but I respect her decision. She doesn't owe us a thing. It is just a job. People leave jobs all the time. How many of you talk about your decision to leave your job with your co-workers? Most people do not and keep that to themselves until they make their final decision. I also wonder how many of you that are complaining would be willing to work 12-16 hour days, 5-6 days a week for 9 months of the year. I wouldn't.

So many people don't want Ziva to die, but I personally feel that the only way to give her a clean break without any chance of her coming back is the kill her off. I mean, she made a new family at NCIS; after losing one father, why would she choose to lose another one? Not to mention Tony, who wouldn't be able to let her go. I don't think that she would be able to let him go, either, after their history.

Ziva will not be killed.

Without Ziva, there may not be a Season 12 for 'NCIS.' Indeed, I'll be very surprised if Season 11 isn't the show's last. It's better for "NCIS" to call it quits while still on top than to continue into a 12th season and lose both its soul and its ratings.

I hope they don't kill off Ziva David, that solve for an actor leaving the show has literally been done to death. LOL! the way I see it played out in my head, Ziva mysteriously disappears in season eleven, and shows up as a guest star in season twelve with a toddler that looks a lot like DiNozzo! Who promptly proposes! What's not to like? LOL!

Actually Vance only said he had a girlfriend he did't say her name was Jackie or that he later married her.
Eli, who knows more about Leon than Riley does, mentions that Leon was expendable as no one would miss him.
Sorry, I still think that Jackie was an Mossad plant by Eli.

that many fans enjoyed this relationship. From the looks in "Housekeeping" and "A Desperate Man" to EJ saying that "She does Tony...Ziva....she cares....I'm not talking about movies Tony, I'm talking about you." Not to mention ALL the looks & meaningful conversations & moments that were given to us in season 10. So please do not say we are making this up. It was teased & dragged out too long. So do I think I should have a little pay off for my 8 years of waiting? Sure. Give us 2 episodes & let us enjoy them. No one knows if they are going to tether Tony & Ziva together in an off screen relationship so stop saying that that is what is going to happen. Let's see how it plays out before you start complaining about it.

NCIS Season 11 Episode 1 Quotes

I'm positive that NCIS is being set up. Sending you out here was not about Lieutenant McBride. It was about separating you from your team.

Parsons

Tobias: Hard to know who to trust anymore.
Gibbs: Has it ever been easy, Tobias?
