*** This review may contain spoilers ***

A marine is pulled out of the ocean decomposed in a body bag. This marine was aboard the Damocles, the ship Ziva was on whose crew went missing. At the same time Ziva applies to be an agent and is denied because she has information about the case that she is withholding. Ziva has trouble telling the story of what happened before the crew was executed. Gibbs and Vance decide to play Good cop, bad cop to get her to tell them what happened on the ship.

I really enjoyed this episode because of its originality. It tells a compelling story about Ziva's mossad mission to kill Saleem. The head of the Kidon, officer Ben Guidon is Ziva's commander and he says that her family has always been there for her unlike NCIS. She then looks at a picture of her and her brother on the wall not knowing who she should trust. Later on, Ben Guidon kills the marine and Ziva has trouble accepting this because he's something like family. All these moments really show her emotional state. Finally Gibbs comes in to play bad cop after he finds out the bullet in Cryer was fired by Ben Guidon. He chases him out of there and Ziva tells him that apologies are a sign of weakness, a sign of loyalty to Gibbs' team. Ziva then ends the story by saying that she abandoned her commander to go after Saleem alone. She didn't trust him. Sure enough it was her team that rescued her and not the mossad.

I enjoyed the setting of this episode. It was set on a shifty boat full of mercenaries Ziva couldn't trust. Her eternal dilemma is ended by something Gibbs says. I hope we'll get to know what he said. This episode had a lot of character development for Ziva and now she's back. This season is starting out very well, it will probably be one of my favourites.
