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
