    I have to say I prefer Tiva just because they seem to have such a spark together but I honestly think DiNozzo changed after Kate died and you can really see the effect of having Kate in his life affected his personality. He is much more interested in love now which is really sweet. So Tiva but only because of Tate, if that makes any sense.

    Actually it's not completely true.Yes,he chamged after Kate's death,but that was because he was the one,who had a crish on her-she didn't feel the same way about him. I think that Ziva has been given more to do on the team and in the cases than I felt that Kate did when she was there. I didn't feel that Tony and McGee had that same respect for Kate as they have for Ziva.Kate and Tony's very different personalities as an example did not bring out the best in each other or the team in general.Ziva is far more closer to Tony than Kate-Tony and Kate really acted childish at times,Tony and Ziva rarely act childish.Ziva has more respect to McGee than Kate-althought Kate was on McGee's side in some ep.,later in S2 she helped Tony in his little games with Tim,and her character became more...childish than in the first season.Ziva,on the other hand,grew up in the latest ep.Since Tony met Ziva,he grew up a lot too/with Kate he was acting still like a little boy/-and exactly that is what I like about him in the latest seasons-a grown up Tony.

    Definitely TIVA!!!!

    I don't see any romantic chemistry between Tate, they are more like siblings. Tiva is hot.

    Let me say there is no wrong answer here. There are valid reasons on each side.

    IMO, Tate was like watching two children in grammar school fight, while really liking each other. Tiva, on the other hand, is like watching smoldering embers about to burst into flames.

    There was another topic about why Cote is so popular. I surmised that it is because Ziva is very mysterious and there is so much of her past we do not know about. We can assume that Kate had a normal American upbringing in the Midwest, went to college and ended up in the Secret Service. Another reason from that topic, Agent Todd was with us only two seasons, so there was a lot less character developement.

    You put it perfectly! Though I still maintain that Tony and Kate only liked each other as far as brothers and sisters like each other.

    TIVA all the way!!!!!

    Tate would have been cute, but it was never as intense as tiva is. tony and kate never had scenes like tony and ziva had in season 5 or season six.

    I didn't want him to hook up with Kate and I don't want him to hook up with Ziva, but if I have to choose I'd say Ziva. He and Kate felt more like siblings.

    TIVA all the way. Before I get into why TIVA I will say a few on why I dont see Tate.

    I never saw them from the beginning. If anything it was Tony being Tony and crushing on Kate at times. Other times they acted like bickering brother and sister.

    Now on to TIVA....
    From the moment they met you could or I should say I could see that there was such a possiblity of great moments. They are great at the banter back and forth. And checking each other out equally. And in all honesty I cant ever imagine Tony with Kate in the "Under Covers". And I know this will sound mean, but when I saw that episode and I got to thinking if Kate was still alive and that happened. The other bad guys never would have bought them being a married couple.

    And one great thing about TIVA is that they challenge each other. Its really hard to explain that more really. They just *ARE*

    And tate fans may hate me for saying this as well, and I dont mean to do so at all but if Kate was still alive and Ziva joined. She would be happy for them. And tease Tony relentlessly over his feeling for Ziva.

    Tony was the one,who had a crush on Kate-she liked him,but she always acted to him like he is one of her brothers+she was more interested in Gibbs than in Tony.

    I agree. I always thought she had a thing for gibbs not tony.
    I can't see tate (sorry tate fans) TIVA FOREVER!

    Tiva. Agree with those who said that Kate was into Gibbs. And Tony and Kate's bickering was typically childish, not layered with sexual tension like Tony and Ziva's.

    Tiva all the way...

    for some reason i never liked kate at all... she just seemed plain to me...

    i think ziva and tony are like pieces in a puzzle: they are at first hard to find each of the right pieces, you'll get frustrated looking for the right pieces because you just want them to find each other, but when you do finish the puzzle, everything fits in perfectly!

    besides, kate didnt seem like the other NCIS agents; she was too stiff and too Air forcyy and didnt look or act like a traditional NCIS agent....

    no offense to all the kate lovers.

    I like Tiva more. I think, Tony reacts differently to Ziva than he did to Kate. To me, with Kate he was like a high school boy with a crush but with Ziva he acts like a man in love.

    I'm sure Kate will not be fond of the idea-like she said"There's not enough liquor on the planet to make that happen".
