Storyline

When Ziva returns to her pad one evening, she finds Tony and Michael on the floor; Michael is barely alive. Michael soon dies at a hospital; Gibbs arrives there and speaks briefly with Tony and Ziva. The next morning Gibbs and McGee go to Ziva's home; before they enter the building, Ziva's place explodes. McGee finds a hidden laptop computer, three cuts in a gas line, and a possible trigger for the explosion. Ducky validates Tony's explanation. Vance, in response to a request from Eli David, the head of Mossad (Ziva's father), Vance, Gibbs, Tony, and Ziva, along with Michael's body, go to Tel Aviv. Eli interviews Tony, Ziva learns who set the fire, and Tony and Ziva have a nice little chat. McGee and Abby find many answers. Vance, Gibbs, and Tony return to Washington, DC, without Ziva by her own decision. During a mission for Mossad in Somalia in the Horn of Africa, Ziva becomes imprisoned, tortured, and questioned about the NCIS. [To be continued.] Written by DocRushing

Goofs

Before the team head to Israel, Vance has a red right eye but his eye is fine in Israel. When they return and Vance and Gibbs have their intense conversation, Vance's red eye is visible again in some shots. His eye is also red in the DVD interview with the cast. Clearly, the scenes have been shot out of sequence. See more »

Quotes

Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: My gut told me it was Rivkin, not Ziva. Sometimes my gut just... sucks. But if Ziva knew something, I wanted to give her a chance to explain it to me.
NCIS Director Leon Vance: To protect her.
Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo: If she needed it.
