A bomb explodes as Ziva passes; she stops and challenges a pedestrian, who is a former teammate, Eschel, whom she allows to walk away. Ziva goes to the Mossad in Washington; Eschel is officially dead, but he now acts independently; with the bomb he killed a Syrian informant, whom the Israelis want, along with two FBI bodyguards. The Mossad tries to hold Ziva, but she escapes. The FBI issues a warrant for Ziva for espionage and murder, and the FBI takes over the case. With Abby's help, Ziva calls Gibbs in retirement in Mexico; Tony, McGee, Ducky, Abby, and Palmer form a secret pact to help Ziva; Gibbs returns to Washington. Gibbs and Tony agree that Eschel set up Ziva; Gibbs and Ziva investigate in the field; the FBI gets first a tip and then a surprise. Gibbs, Tony, McGee, and Ziva find Eschel and his contact, and Ziva gets the explanation and the evidence. Gibbs goes back to Mexico. Written by

When Gibbs and Tony are in Abby's lab looking at the big screen and they both take a drink of their coffee at the same time, when they pull the cup down you see the drink hole of Tony's cup is to the left, if he would have actually taken a drink coffee would have spilled all over him. See more

Tony, that question you asked me earlier, "What would Gibbs do?" Gibbs isn't here, *you* are!
