With the character of Ziva David being on the show for about fifty episodes now and having convinced everybody that she's a mossad assassin, this is turned around. After watching this episode, I finally believe that she's a full-time member of the series and not just some near-east super-killer asset of the NCIS team around Gibbs. With previous episodes centering more around all of the other characters of the squad, this was a joy to watch and see that she has not been forgotten. I cherish those kind of episodes, getting in touch with the feelings and emotional life of the stars of the series.
Very well done!
