When Tony arrives in Tel Aviv, Mossad agents take him to their headquarters to draw him into the search for Ziva. Meanwhile the successor SecNav meets with Vance, Gibbs, and Fornell; she tells them that the PotUS has directed her to use "any means necessary" to bring to swift justice the Brotherhood of Doubt for its responsibility for the terrorist attack on her predecessor and others. Tony searches in Israel and elsewhere; after five months he finds Ziva, but she expresses displeasure; they converse at length. Fornell, providing protection to a government witness, accompanies him to a hospital, and they meet fireworks. At night a man jumps Gibbs in a dark alley; Gibbs wins and gets information. McGeek makes a huge discovery, and he tells Gibbs, who figures out the whole thing; with some difficulty Gibbs draws things together and takes a shot, eliminating one major player but leaving others. Tony returns home alone with a memory aid; Ziva calls Gibbs. Written by DocRushing
