|If Ziva and Kate were on the same team, Tony would run, not walk for the hills. |
And I think Gibbs would be right behind him. That is if he wasn't using Ziva and Kate for target practice.
I think they could have been on the same team. It would have been...interesting, though. I could definitely see them getting into some whoppers during cases because they both would handle things really differently.
I love Kate, it would have been great to see Sasha Alexander in a few more seasons, but oh well. However, I like Ziva also and can definitely appreciate what she has brought to the team, and how they've all grown because of what they've been through.

Silver War. I think Gibbs would be in front of him Nahh, joking
Anyways, I think Ziva and Kate would have a hard time being on the same team, they would probably talk a lot with eachother, but when it comes to work... Just no. Ziva is way more like.. "Get-on-with-the-problem" sorta woman, I think that would make Kate crazy
I think if Kate and Ziva had been on one the team together, they would most certainly have had problems with each other (to put it nicely), at least in the beginning. Kate was a really competetive character, with her insistence on "I protected the president". Not that that's bad, but I think she would have felt threatend by Ziva in the beginning, because they are just different. Ziva on the other hand would have taken any sort of challenge and stayed stubborn, at least for some time, just remember the look she gave Abby when she was hostile to her in Silver War (or was it already in Kill Ari?), or how she just ignored that PD-lady in Stakeout.
They would have warmed up towards each other eventually, Kate probaly sooner than Ziva, because they would have seen that each of them is very good at what they do, even though in a different way. And then, you guys are right: Tony and Gibbs would have been in Australia, by the time they teamed up against them.
That's a fairly interesting question. I think that season 1 Kate and Ziva could. There was a different character relationship that seemed to be developing that may have eventually put Kate in a semi-supervisory position, making the eventual addition of Ziva an interesting choice, but along that line the relationship/banter with Tony would change (making Ziva is his primary target.) However Season 2 really took a lot of the bite and importance of Kate away. She was almost a non-entity by the time she was killed off, serving only to provoke and banter with Tony. Ziva became a welcome addition, and Kate's qualities were distributed among the surviving characters in a useful way.
Psychologically speaking, Ziva and Kate could not have co-existed as" sisters." There was not enough differentiation in the two characters by the end of the second and the beginning of the third season. It would have been useless and annoying.
When and if they DO pursue the romance between Tony and Ziva, they should have an episode somewhere in there (similar to the first episode after Kate was killed), where Kate's ghost is running around and interacting with everyone (including Ziva). They could have fun with that (although they wouldn't actually be "working together) especially when the ghost interacts with Tony.
It's hard to say. I definitely saw a down-play of Kate's role in NCIS in the 2nd season and even how weak she was compared to everyone else in the team. So I don't think she would have survived much longer in NCIS even if Ari hadn't killed her. I blame the head writer for that one. Because of this reason,I don't think there would ever be a time where Ziva and Kate would be able to work on the same team together.Perhaps they could had worked as enemies at first. Either way once Kate exited the show... Ziva would take her place. It's a revolving door. I definitely think though that everytime Tony gets close to Ziva he thinks of Kate making fun of him in the back of his mind.
