@Kat - High 5 to you; GO gurl!! That loon cracks everyone up with his self-imposed doctrines on Ziva. He can't even appreciate the ENTIRE cast, for spending sooooo much time wondering what "Ziva will do next". He's obssessed with her. I can name a few others that are too. They go around posting nasty remarks about one solitary character that they will NEVER be able to ignore - yet they claim to not like her. Then why do you give her SOOO MUCH OF YOUR ATTENTION??!!! S6 & S7 were the HIGHEST RATED Overall seasons consistently for NCIS, as far as viewers went - ESPECIALLY Season 7. There is NO.WAY.ON.EARTH the network will ever ignore the powerful draw of viewers that Ziva paired up with Tony brought to NCIS. This cast is THE best cast on Television - TOGETHER. End of Discussion.
You rock, Thomas! I agree with everything you said. I suspect that you and many others on this board are examples of the kind of viewers that NCIS is in danger of losing (and may already be losing). I keep watching in the vain hope that we'll get back some of that show that we all came to love. So far, it's not looking good.
Cote de Pablo signed new 2 year contract

As you may have already heard, Cote de Pablo signed a new 2 year contract.
According to Deadline she got a salary increase and a cash bonus.
Great news and fantastic to hear that Cote will stay on NCIS.
This article is for you Michael, since you want people to believe that Cote is leaving at the end of this season. I even left the date this was reported to make sure that wouldn't be disputed. So, all the cast members have contracts through to the end of season ten. 😜

A forced Glasberg idea is hard to mistake it is like bad fan fiction. Under Glasberg's tenure loyal Tony and Ziva fans who combined make up the majority of the fan base (and Tiva fans) who rarely complain have for the most part been generally disrespected by the schizophrenic sophomoric writing that has plagued their favorite characters. It all started in my opinion with the first episode "Guilty Pleasures" in Season 7 that Glasberg was first listed as executive producer. Our beloved characters that used to be consistently contemporary, human, witty, sexy, and dramatically complex have slowly become uneven, mediocre and middle of the road. I am tired of being part of the silent majority. This show needs to get back on its game or it will die a boring irrelevant death.
Michael, you are seriously close to troll status. Cote was dating a big wig and was supposed to be the center the show, are you crazy or are confusing reality with really weird dreams you seem to be having? If you can't stand the show this much, quit watching. Makes no sense to keep watching a show that you appreantly hate. And Cote isn't dying this season so that rumor is complete crap like your other comments. I couldn't stand Tony in season two but I wasn't hateful to that character and its actor the way you are with Ziva/Cote
DR Ryan is a typical DOD level "know-it-all" who knows a lot less about the real world at the working level... They tell you how to act and control the money since that is all the pentagon actually cares about.. I cannot believe her character knows as much as she says she does.
My wife and I love Cote and enjoy her acting. Others maybe not so much..
Did CIA Ray ever finish off Trent Kort as was suggested by the last show last season??
Gibbs is always great-cautious, understated and thank goodness he doesn't trust Ryan- hope he doesnt get hurt by her- I think you should bring back the attorney Allison Hart- besides knowing about the Cartels, she and Gibbs definitely had a connection; once she learned more about his past, you definitely saw her empathetic side and wanting to help Gibbs. I didn't trust Monique from the beginning; Don't like Ryan's mind games with Gibbs- I don't think he does either
Ziva and Tony- who knows- defintely appreciate Tony's serious side and acting.
Let not blame Gary Glasberg he got the job after the horrible season 7 and the fact that Donald Bellisario was making Ziva the star of the show because they were dating at the time.
so Blame Donald Bellisario and Blame Tiva for what has happen to NCIS
(continuation of my previous comment).
This show should be bringing in over 20 million every episode at this stage in its run. Glasberg was handed a show in the 2nd half of Season 7 that was averaging over 20 million per episode that season. Except for a few episodes since then it has been unable to gain further momentum under his control. I am still confused as to how he got this job. It's no wonder Jesse Stern, a young, edgy, funny and brilliant writer left the show. The show is slowly losing its unique character driven appeal of season's 3, 5, 6, 7 and becoming formulaic at the hands of Glasberg. As formulaic as a Schneck and Cadera script, two writers who have been writing for this show for far too long and who I recently read have been elevated to executive producers. This show needs young creative blood at its helm. There are three more writers left on this shows writing staff that are extremely talented who rarely miss unless an idea is forced on them by Glasberg. A forced
As a fan of all the characters I was terribly disappointed in last nights episode. It was the script and dialogue that fell flat for most of the episode. The ending was rushed and ridiculously timed in the cut. I have not been happy with any episode since the hacky confusing mess that was the 200th which I felt was as disastrous as the Season 9 premiere and last Season 8's finale. There were many missed opportunities in last nights episode; far too many to discuss in this comment section. As usual the actors and actresses did the best with the mediocre direction and choppy script they were given to perform. Regardless of the fact that the script was penned by an outside writer, a talented one at that, it had Glasberg's confusing schlocky fingerprints all over it. The show runner Gary Glasberg in my opinion has been consistently uneven and very hit or miss over the last 2 years with all the main characters arcs, concepts et al since taking the unofficial helm from Shane Brennan in the
I love Cote and the character that is plays.
If you look back Every since decemeber when Ziva became the foucs of the show again the ratings have gone down So I do not understand why CBS wont listen to both their fans and the actors who HATE tiva, Cote De Pablo is the only actress who contact is up at the end of the year I hope she does not get to come back
Such a disappointing episode. I was looking forward to understanding a little about what's going in Ziva's head, or how she's dealt with the Ray stuff, or who she used to be. Instead it was a lot of JLC (who I like but am sick of) and more emotional Tony scenes. Couldn't one emotional scene be given to another character?
Michael, you need to go and take a Spanish class or two an d then maybe you would be able to translate correctly what he said. Definitely wasn't about hating someone. I think this episode was okay but would have been better without all the Gibbs/Ryan scenes. I like JLC's character but it is time for her to go. I don't think her and Gibbs make the greatest of fits. I'm hoping we have seen the last of Dr. Ryan. And I am wondering if the reason that Ziva didn't want Tony along is that she thought she and Monique could handle it and just wanted him safe. I don't know. What I do know is that there are 4 episodes left this season and who knows what all could happen. Has anyone heard anything about the team or certain team members having to go overseas in one if the remaining episodes?
Michael you have serious problems. Show fans are sick of reading your confused and troubling posts all over the internet. The vast majority of fans love the Ziva character and Cote De Pablo the actress. It's obvious in all the independent data (separate from the fan liaison data from the Yahoo Group joke of a forum) the show has gathered over 6 plus years. Cote De Pablo will be a member of this cast until the very last episode. All cast members contracts are up next year in Season 10. What the show heads and the other actors/actresses on the show including M. Weatherly do realize is that there is a crazy microscopic bunch of Tony fans like yourself that troll the internet who are angry slasher/romo Tibbs fans that hate Ryan and Ziva (even Cote) because it takes way from an m/m alternate universe Tibbs ship. Tibbs will never happen on this show. Michael you have an obsessive anger towards a fictional character and the actress who plays her and that is not normal. I'm afraid for you.
I think you're right, AJA. Let's get rid of all this soap opera "Tony/Ziva", "Gibbs/Ryan" crap and get back to solving some cases with some REAL teamwork. Where are Fornell, Trent Kort, etc? Characters that actually had something to do with solving the cases...and weren't worried about jumping into bed with the leads!
Where did you get all that "this case isn't over" from? Some secret memo only reviewers get to see? :D The case looked pretty much closed to me - hostage safed, mystery solved (CIA? no explanation necessary), end of story. Of course Ryan and Monique are still mysterious, but isn't that a requirement for Psy Ops or rogue Interpol agents? Well, we'll see...
Anyway, I was hoping for some more Tony-Ziva interaction on that trip, that was disappointing ;) But other than that, great episode!
Ziva cannot give Tony that. Her childhood was also problematic. That is why she responded so well to Lt. Roy Sanders. He loved his parents and sister. His love of his family showed in how well grounded he was. He could have given Ziva the steadiness and security that was missing in her childhood. She spoke softly and kindly to him. She seems to push Tony away so that she doesn’t have to deal with a relationship with him. Her history with men in her life tends to be negative..... she’s getting in the first strike. Not a good thing for a relationship. It makes for a very contentious time. Tony and Ziva need to look elsewhere.
Someone said earlier in the comments that Tony and Ziva can come together and help each other. Alas, in real life that doesn’t always work out well. Tony needs to find someone who comes from a happy engaged family....brothers and sisters to celebrate birthdays together. These are things Tony missed doing as a child. He should marry someone who looks up to him. He, in return, will grow into a strong man by living up to his wife’s expectations of him.
I did not know ratings are down but their shows this year are not keeping me interested and The Voice is really good!
Correction of previous comment...
Army Colonel is my favorite, please bring her back, if producers want a love interest for Gibbs.
Tony's conversation with chaplain was wonderful! He is a sweet, thoughtful man and sexy! Now the chaplain would be good with Tony. And she is sexier than Ziva! Ziva does not respect Tony.
Maybe the ratings are going down too, because of all the tiva/Ziva drama again. Maybe some fans don't live for these "moments" and are tired of seeing this show turn into a soap opera.
Everyone wants to make lame excuses for the ratings going down..."oh, it's the time of year", "oh, it's just a fluke". Sorry, but numbers are numbers. There are 2-3 million FEWER people watching right now than there were last year at this time. That's 2-3 MILLION! It's not the weather...it's the lame characters (JLC) and stories! They need to get their stuff together. Next year may well be the last, and I want them to go out with a bang rather than a whimper.
Did not like this episode! Too many different stories going on at once, seemed confusing. I agree with Miss Katie.
Abby as Best Man is good but Ducky has such a close relationship with Jimmy, Ducky would be better.
JLC has to go at end of this year! Please! She is not right for Gibbs. Even my husband said the romance does not work well for NCIS. Gibbs is a man who will not commit! And now that JLC is suspect of something, who knows yet, he can not trust her.
I just watched an episode from 2007 when the Army Lt. Asked Gibbs to commit to her, I loved her with Gibbs. But men do like trashy women and despite all her degrees JLC comes across as trashy. So, there is no pressure on Gibbs because he sees her as temporary. So, last show this year, let's see her killed off.
As much as I like Jamie Lee Curtis and the whole concept of the age appropriate love interest (and exactly what does that mean?), to me the chemistry between the two of them is just not there. Other than that, a good solid episode of my favorite show.
