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.]
Did You Know?
Vance and the team are seen arriving in Tel Aviv on a C-130. The straight line air distance from DC to Tel Aviv is 5,890 miles, and the cruising speed of the C-130 is 336 mph. With mid air refueling (some versions of the C-130 have mid air refueling capability) the flight time would be 17.5 hours. The range of the C-130 is 2,360 miles, so it would have required at least 2 mid air refueling. If the C-130 they were flying in was not mid air refueling capable the plane would have taken a more zigzag route with several refueling stops and increasing the flight time to 20 hours or more. It would have been much quicker if they had taken a jet powered aircraft such as the C-17. See more
In the interrogation room Tony complains to Director David that he digs hanging out in concrete bunkers, "especially after 12 hour plane rides". The plane Tony flew in on was a C-130 Hercules. Even if it flew non-stop and refueled in mid air a C-130 would take at least 17 hours to fly from DC to Tel Aviv, not 12. See more
