  • It is a good way to send off a character

  • Quotes (5)

    • Tony: Hey, listen, I know it's hard, and I know you want to change. I can change with you. I'm fighting for you, Ziva.
      Ziva: I know.

    • Tony: You want me to give up on Ziva?
      Gibbs: I didn't say that.
      Tony: Are you giving up on her?
      Gibbs: I didn't say that, either.
      McGee: Boss, maybe you could try saying what you're saying?
      Gibbs: If Ziva doesn't want to be found, you aren't going to find her. I'm saying you should respect that.

    • Gibbs: Look, don't be a dumb ass. You keep Agent Fornell in your hip pocket, or you're a dead man.
      Mendez: For freedom, I'd hardly be the first to die. But very well.
      Fornell: Really? I spent the last hour saying pretty much the same thing.
      Mendez: Then let's hope you're better at protection than you are at persuasion.
      Fornell: (To Gibbs) Save me.

    • Tony: (as he walks away from Ziva) This is the hardest 180 of my life.

    • Fornell: I can't believe you shot me in the ass!
      Gibbs: It's a through and through.
      Fornell: But you still shot me through the ass!

      Not very happy with how GG dealt with CDP's departure. We were promised several episodes with Cote (which means 2 or 3) and we got a whole 15 minutes in ONE episode. I GG should have been the one leaving, not Cote!

      Very poorly written episode. Ziva already dealt with her past as an assassin and started to change in season 7 (wasn't that what GCBC was all about). While CDP and MW were great in the episode, the story really didn't make sense. And there was so little Ziva! Are we really supposed to believe it cost more to have Cote back for two whole episodes (as we were promised) than it was to pay JLC for all her episodes (too many, IMO) in season 9?! I still think Cote's exit was fishy and these farewell to Ziva episodes seemed more like a slap in the face to Cote than a heartfelt goodbye!

      Is the show ending soon? It should. And here is how Tiva should end up: Tony goes to find Ziva again and she brings out his son. Because we KNOW when Tony left her, that Ziva was pregnanat, don't we? Well, don't we?

      New faces, same old boring vanilla storylines. It's like the Lawrence Welk of procedurals.

      Ziva is first a woman then an agent. I'm happy that she made this decision now while she has all her She needs to reflect and reconnect with her past in order to relax and rejuvenate for the future. I applaud your decision. We all need to be mindful of who we are in order to proceed with our future.
