Female Agents[ edit ] Special Agent Caitlin Todd[ edit ] Tony's relationship with Kate could be depicted as a sibling relationship, but could also be depicted romantic too   and series creator Don Bellisario said that if Kate hadn't died, she and Tony would have embarked on a relationship throughout one point of the series.
They constantly compete,  and Kate is often critical of Tony's behavior, especially concerning his attitude towards women and his disrespect for personal boundaries; indeed, Tony routinely goes through her purse, cellphone, PDA and desktop computer, uncovering personal informations such as her dates' identities. However, it is not uncommon for Tony to be teased and taunted by Kate;  their bickering gets so bad in the episode "Pop Life" that they seek counseling from Ducky.
However, on many occasions he is shown being considerate and kind to Kate. He buys her flowers as a peace offering after annoying her in the episode " Vanished ".‘NCIS’ Season 16 Premiere Date: Did Ziva Survive The Bomb? Cote de Pablo & Michael Weatherly To Ret

In extras seen on the Season 2 DVD Box Set, the producers state that it was intended for there to be a relationship between these two characters. In the episode "SWAK", after Kate is found uninfected, she continues to stay with Tony, lying about her condition to him even though she knows that the risk of infection is still imminent. As he was about to die, she is devastated and starts crying, but Tony eventually survives, much to her relief.
Her death would have a serious impact on him, which along with other events make Tony "grow up" during the following seasons. After Kate's death, like the other characters, DiNozzo also has a vision of her postmortem. Typical to Tony's chauvinistic personality, Kate appears in the Catholic schoolgirl uniform that he had been asking about in the episode "Bikini Wax".
After telling him that she always knew what he was thinking, she realizes that she is wearing the uniform and quickly berates him, saying, "Tony, I just died, and you're having a sexual fantasy?
Sometimes I used to picture you naked" and she responds by screaming in shock seconds before Ziva David is introduced for the first time.

In the season 9 premier Nature of the Beastit is shown through a series of flashbacks that Tony, while working on a covert operation given to him by SecNav, had confronted EJ about her removal of a microchip from Levin's body after he was killed by Cobb. Tony, EJ and Cade are all lured to an alley, resulting a violent shooting in which Cade is fatally shot, Tony suffers a concussion and temporary memory loss, and EJ disappears.
She and Tony go to a safehouse, where they briefly discuss the events of the previous months. After the shooter, who was also responsible for Cade's murder, is apprehended, EJ and Tony permanently go their separate ways. The main reason for the warming of their relationship is the fact that Tony was involved in an ongoing operation run by Shepard, which is of personal importance to her.
As they are keeping secrets, they develop a strong level of trust.
On Gibbs' absence, Tony takes on his job and its associated responsibilities; this means his interactions with the director become more frequent and as a consequence his relationship with her became more familiar, as seen in the episode "Shalom". He considers the event to be his fault because he had followed the director's instruction to abandon her protection detail.
In the episode " Sandblast ", when trying to talk to a mentally disabled man who unknowingly has a bomb in his backpack, he mentions, "my son Tony plays the same game". Tony is easily riled when it seems that Gibbs has a new favorite, and tries desperately to win back favor. Gibbs has the tendency to smack Tony on the back of the head whenever he says or does something inappropriate, starting with the last flashback sequence of " Baltimore ", however Gibbs tells Tony that he was "irreplaceable" in the episode " Missing ".
Timothy, Caitlin, even DiNozzo. I've always sensed there's a strong bond between the two of you. In "Hiatus Part 1", Ducky unintentionally chastises Ziva for not asking which hospital Gibbs was taken to after the explosion; upsetting her when he implies that Ziva does not care for Gibbs like the rest of the team does.

Ziva David - Wikipedia
Ziva appears in the bathroom following this, extremely upset by the fact that they think that she does not care. In the second part of this episode, Ziva visits Gibbs at the hospital in the night and begs him to remember. When he becomes angry, Ziva uses his hand to slap the back of her head, causing Gibbs to remember himself within his team.
He remembers that Ziva saved his life and that she had killed her brother to do it while Ziva breaks down and cries into his arms. He remarks that he owes her at the end of the episode, something that would become true when he returns to the US during " Shalom " to help in clearing her name after being framed for murder and a terrorist bombing by Iranian Intelligence.
She admits that she had been under orders to kill Ari when it became clear that he was out of control, but elucidates that she had never intended to go through with it, believing him to be innocent. She further confides to Gibbs her feelings on the subject of Ari's death and her family: He was my brother, and you were nothing. But I was wrong about Ari, and you Now he is gone. Eli is all but dead to me and the closest thing I have to a father is accusing me Ziva reveals that when she finally killed Ari, it was truly to save Gibbs and she was not following her orders, re-earning Gibbs' trust.
After he persuades her to tell her version of the story and she is cleared, Gibbs whispers something to her and kisses her on the forehead,  causing her to break down in tears of relief. Mark Harmon later disclosed that he had improvised the final moments of the scene, and when questioned about what Gibbs said, replied, "[De Pablo]'s not gonna tell you any more than I am—I don't think. Director Vance hands the approved application to Agent Gibbs, who in turn transmits it to Ziva, whom he calls "Probie".
In the Season 8 episode " Baltimore ", after learning that her partner Tony DiNozzo arrested Gibbs when he first met their boss, Ziva comments that she would rather arrest her own father than Gibbs. In the Season 9 episode "Safe Harbor", Ziva questions his seemingly solitude lifestyle, prompting him to respond, "You're never alone when you have kids," kissing her forehead and adding, "Good night, kid.
Family[ edit ] Ziva is depicted as having a complex family history, and, as of the tenth season, all of her immediate family is deceased: Tali, her seldom-mentioned younger sister, was killed in a terrorist attack against Israel;  her mother died in an unspecified violent incident;  Ziva shot and killed her half-brother to save Gibbs;  and her father was shot dead in a targeted killing.
Her choice to fatally shoot Ari after his guilt becomes apparent in order to prevent him from killing Gibbs is often regarded as a pivotal moment for the character and a recurring subject within the show. I was not following orders. She recalls him taking his children into the forest for "fun" blindfolded and making them find their own way back.
When Ziva was a child her father told her that one "can never truly know a person or their secrets". At the time, she had refused to believe him but later said that he had never been more honest with her. It is remarked upon several times that Eli "raised her to be a killer",   a fact that he does not deny and explains to Director Vance: It is my dream that my daughter will not have to make that decision with her sons and her daughters.
I would like my grandchildren to be doctors and architects. To live a happy life. To grow fat and old. She stays in Tel Aviv with her father and Mossad. The episode ends with a cliffhanger in which Ziva is being tortured at a terrorist camp in Somalia by Saleem.
It is later revealed that her father sent her on this mission despite knowing that the risks made it a suicide mission. Gibbs holds Eli responsible for Ziva's captivity and subsequent abuse by Saleem and his men, saying that Ziva did not have a choice  and that "her father left her to die in a desert. Shortly after her being rescued from Somalia, she sends an email to her father formally resigning from Mossad, and applies to become an official NCIS agent.
Eli attempts to prevent her from leaving Mossad by having her former team leader Malachi Ben-Gidon accuse her of killing a marine who had been among those who died on the Damocles. He dismisses her ordeal in the desert with the remark "You are not dead. She has a name. There are good memories that go with the bad It absolutely weighs on her. When anyone loses someone, you think about what they meant to you and what part of them you continue to carry. Though she accepts his efforts, they suffer another falling out and shortly afterwards he is fatally wounded by machine gunfire in an attack on the house during Shabbat dinner.
Ziva breaks down when she realizes that Eli had succumbed to his injuries, cradling her father's dead body while sobbing and praying in Hebrew. Flashbacks expound on their relationship during her early adolescence as she pursues revenge against Bodnar in the latter half of the season.
InTali survives a mortar attack that kills Ziva, and is introduced to her father shortly thereafter at the behest of Mossad Director Orli Elbaz. Tony bonds with Tali and leaves with her for Israel and Paris to look for answers.
She learns what it's like to have compassion and loyalty. As an immigrant, she faces prejudice and racism, but she handles it with poise.
That's the freshness she's injected into [NCIS], which just wrapped its fourth season with military honors and where second-season de Pablo is de anti-pablum, a no-nonsense ninja of a nemesis for those nasty evil-doers who soon discover that the Israeli is for real. She was tough, fearless and, often, tender. Coville from Cracked magazine questioned the choice to script her as "an espionage expert who knows nine languages The network released the following statement: Cote and CBS share a great respect for the 'NCIS' audience, and we look forward to working with her and the producers on appropriate closure in this chapter of Ziva's story.
I look forward to finishing Ziva's story. Using writings by Blakey Vermeuleshe explained, "Fiction allows us a rare insight into the minds and hearts of its characters, its people. In the best of ways. That personal that he comes out with, that frat boy thing -- he's hiding constantly from the truth.
It's just a big facade and she sees right through it. Upon being brought into the room to talk to him, she is shown to have been severely beaten and very weak as well as unsure of how to react at Tony's presence.
Ziva asks why Tony is in Somalia, saying that he should not have come.
Tony, under truth serumfirst deflects. When Ziva asks again, he replies, "I couldn't live without you, I guess. They have to get past this trust issue, which is: He was a threat, but whether or not Tony was actually jealous, that's up to the viewers to decide!
The city of light, and of love. That's right, Ziva and Tony in Paris! You wouldn't believe it, but as if that weren't enough, their French hotel totally screws up the reservation and the two bad-ass agents end up It doesn't mean that something is going to be resolved, but it does mean that the journey may have started again. It's a long road back. When you think about what they went through, for them to resolve what happened and come to terms with that, it's a long road back. Tony in turn tells McGee that he took the couch.
Ziva asks him why he lied and he returns the question. There was much speculation on the part of fans about whether the characters might have shared more than was divulged, but Weatherly said in response, "The truth of what happened is probably something that can be discovered inside the episode itself.
If you really listen to what they say, I think it is pretty clear what happened: We haven't discussed it. But all I can say is it was good. Los Angeles, and was replaced by Gary Glasberg in He has a strong, nice-guy demeanor but—I'm quoting from the casting notice here—'there's a hint of a mystery behind his smile.
Tony cares about Ziva and wants to make sure she's not mixed up with the wrong kind of guy, so he's going to be watchful and protective of her. We kept it light and we kept it fun, and we kept it like two people who are genuinely in to each other and wanting to move things along. It's about what's going on between the lines. These two people are touchy-feely, and that's different for Ziva. We'll see what the audience thinks, but for me, he feels potential and possibility in a way that he hasn't for years.
EJ is a mirror, so he sees that hope for himself again. She has her eccentricities as well, which makes her adorable to Tony and highly irritating to Ziva. She is a team leader, having accepted the assignment in Rota, Spain that Tony had turned down several years prior. Ziva abruptly ends their relationship after learning that he had lied to her directly about his reasoning for being in Washington, D.
When EJ assures him that they will find Ziva, he replies that "it's just different for some of us". EJ takes an extended leave of absence with the conclusion of the season, ending her affair with Tony. Ziva and Ray repair their relationship somewhat, and he gives her an empty ring box as a "promise" before leaving for a long-term assignment. Glasberg commented, "Ziva and Ray are a little open-ended at the moment. There isn't any closure to it. We'll have to see where it leads, but I think he was pretty clear that he has a job to do at the moment, and that's gonna be the primary focus for him.
After a fallout with Tony, she tells him that Ziva respects him and cares about him. He at first deflects but then says, "Surround yourself with people you would give your own life for. He's protective of her and cares about her and has feelings for her, and, at the end of the day, wants to make sure that she's safe and happy with the direction of her life.
Season X and the Year of Tiva and an emotional farewell[ edit ] They've been through extraordinary circumstances together, so it doesn't necessarily require the explosion. There's a real, plain-spoken, straight read between them, so they don't have to jump through hoops. When she watches Tony does his stuff or he watches her hide behind that barricade of an Israeli assassin princess mentality, they both clock it, they know it and they can move around each other.
It's a great relationship. Tony and Ziva, feeling bad about missing Jimmy and Breena's wedding, try to cheer each other up by joking about how awful weddings are—an exchange that begins to take on meaning when they become wistful about "the vow, the ring, the kiss, the ketubah Later, when the Navy Yard is seconds from exploding, Ziva refuses to leave the building without Tony.
The bomb goes off while they are still in the elevator; Ziva and Tony fall to the ground, with Tony's arm around her waist, and their free hands clasped tightly as the elevator appears to crash. This is the year. I've had years in which I thought, 'Oh my God, this a Tiva year,' and there have been years he thought were Tiva years…. The truth is, we have yet to find out where that storyline is going to go. I think they're toying around with us like they always do.
Weatherly stated, "She was really the beginning of his love for movies and why that is such a deep, penetrating part of who he is.
The last gift she gave him was to turn to the movies as a moral compass. It's a profound, soft, vulnerable moment. Tony, believing her to be going on a date, badgers her until she admits that she goes to the opera every year on her deceased sister's birthday, as Tali had wanted to be a singer. Unable to obtain tickets for her himself, he makes a CD of opera music and gives it to her to listen to. We end up back in Tony's apartment, and there's some really lovely, emotional stuff that happens.
It's all the things I hope that people who enjoy the Tony-Ziva relationship will look for. Near the end of the episode, he comes to see her off as she prepares to fly to Israel for Eli's funeral and assures her in Hebrew that she is not alone. I think they're always testing that relationship and they're always throwing things at it to see how far they can take [it].
